What is the proper way to receive a compliment?

Post by Vezmus on Sat Mar 23, 2013 7:43 am

I never figured this one out. So far it feels like I have tried everything. A simple 'thank you' seems fine but the inflection/delivery has to be spot-on and seem natural. Saying thank you is basically the same as saying "you're right" which in my mind is severely self appreciating therefore vain and wrong.

I don't go for natural. I say "Thank you.", but I say it like Garth Algar.

Whichever way feels right at the time. If they don't like the way you received it well that's too bad, although it can feel bad. I've refused to accept compliments before because I felt the intent behind them was wrong or because I simply just didn't like it.

It depends.

If you're receiving a compliment from a guy, just say "thanks, what are you doing later, we should get together." and then you date for a few weeks and blow him. after that, it's your call.

if it's a girl, you say "thanks, but you're way better in all aspects, what are you doing later, we could get together and talk more." and then you date for a few weeks and get blown. after that, its your call.

in short: with guys just say thank you casually, because guys don't care. with girls, return the compliment, or give them a different compliment, because they're emotionally fragile and rely on men for their self worth.

I'm being facetious, but seriously, it'll work if that's your thing.

Everyone just wants to be liked; that's the easiest thing to exploit.
