    Indeed?
    Am I to understand that you make absolutely no attempt to enhance your appearance; not in the way of make-up, clothes etc?

    Perhaps we ought only to compliment those who've undergone plastic surgery -- the ones who worked their asses off (or rather those who didn't...) to make enough money so they could afford it.

    Seems to me that the youest you is the you that you can't change. The natural you.
    Well except by surgery...
    I covered that already.

    I usually assume (maybe stupidly?) that people mean well and I usually blush.

    You said it perfectly, Cafe.

    I appreciate compliments, especially since I'm so curious as to how others perceive me. (Negative comments are welcome as well, so they can sketch out an accurate portrayal.)

    I love sincere compliments, but I tend to shrug it off so I doubt people know how much it means to hear it.

    I love sincere compliments too! If it's someone who knows me intimately, it means a lot because they know all my flaws. I prefer compliments on my character rather than my looks or something superficial. It is awkward to have someone compliment me if I'm not expecting it. I'll usually be like, "Really? Aw, thank you! That makes me feel good." (and then hug them if I'm comfortable with them). I prefer compliments in letters. If I receive a letter that is sincere and from the heart, I melt. It probably has something to do with my type being better communicating through writing. Plus, I can have something tangible to remind me that that person loves me. I can keep the letter and "experience" it over and over. I don't know if that makes sense or not.

    Real, unsolicited compliments from those who give them sparingly can be meaningful. My actions are not done with recognition as an aim so unless it is legit I prolly don’t want to hear it.

    I love compliments. Of course, sincere compliments. They make me feel good, especially when I somedays think that my work is not very good or that I don't look to good that day (when I'm tired or stressed). So, if someone gives me a compliment on such a day, it makes me feel much better. And it's really sweet if it's sincere.

    Yeh same. I'm a sucker for feedback; good or bad.

    Complements are great when they are honest and sincere. When they are said to be nice they are also okay, because the intention counts. When they are said to take advantage of me, how I take them depends on whether I am attracted to you .

    Isn't a compliment always a positive?
