I generally like being complimented. I suppose I like to have my ego brushed. But I don't always know how to accept compliments. I am usually touched by genuinely, thought out compliments. When it's said like they truly meant it. Some people just hand out compliments like candy, and I never really think too much about those. But I've had some compliments haunt me. In a good way.
The only time I had a compliment rub me the wrong way, was when I was interested in this guy and all he had to say to me was that he thought I was attractive. It hurt me because he had no compliment about my personality or intellect. Like I was nothing more than just this face.
