Compliments are always exciting for both men and women. Men shared the most wholesome compliments that they have gotten from a woman and here is 30 of them.
A coworker who I would walk to the bus station with said “I feel safe with you” and as a big hairy dude with resting murder face and a deep voice, that was something absolutely new to me. It’s been 6 years and I still think about that compliment.
A girl once told me I saved her life because (unknown to me) she was battling depression when I happened to show up with her favor Starbucks drink to congratulate her on her new job.
You never know the impact your small deeds can do.
My girlfriends grandmother has Alzheimer’s, so she doesn’t remember meeting me. Every time we go and see her, she’ll take my girlfriend to the side and ask “Who is that handsome young man?” While pointing to me.
I remember my work partner (a woman), talking to another female coworker during lunch about their love lives. She was talking about an ex and how he cheated on her and lied to her and god knows what else. She then said something along the lines of “boys are the worst”, and I laughed. She then looked right at me and said “Except you, but you’re not a boy, you’re a man.”
I swear, my heart skipped a beat. It was the first time I was ever called something like that. It was amazing to be finally seen that way as a 30 year old.
“you’re really funny, i like you”. some really cute girl said this to me quite a while ago, had me nearly crying since i dont get complimented at all, i dont even compliment my self. cried for 10 minutes when i got back home
I (M) was working in Taiwan one summer. Solid group of people.
Anyway, when time came to part ways, lots of hugs were exchanged. There was a traditional Muslim woman in the group who I clicked so well with from the moment we met.
My understanding is that traditional Muslim woman do not make physical contact with males other than their husband.
Anyway, I got to her for a goodbye, I simply put my hand in a waving gesture and said my goodbye.
She then said “No, you know what? I’ll hug you.” And we hugged.
I think about this from time to time.
For a short period in my early twenties I used to work at this school. At one point when we were sitting down eating lunch, this tiny first grader comes and sits next to me, and says quietly.
“I wish I had an older sister”
“Cause then you and her could become really good friends, and then you would come visit us all the time.”
I’ve gotten quite a few compliments from my own age group and older, but that little innocent one was almost heartbreakingly sweet and nice to hear.
“The kids are really lucky that you’re their dad.”
I was wondering if I’d been doing well as a dad and felt kind of depressed, but hearing that from my sweet wife reaffirmed that I’m doing okay.
Walked by a young lady walking into a restaurant. She stopped & came back in to tell me I smell great. I smiled the rest of the day
My really sweet young teenage niece told her mom (my sister) that I was the kind of guy she wanted to marry one day. All very innocent and it melted me.
