    But some of us are plain, or not that physically attractive. That doesn't make us bad people, or even bad partners. It just means we do best with partners who value other things more. I tend to be suspicious when someone compliments me on my appearance, since I know I'm not much to look at. Compliments on positive qualities I know I do possess thus come across as more genuine, since I can see their basis in fact.
    I've been called a criminal, a terrorist, and a threat to the known universe. But everything you were told is a lie. The truth is, they've taken our freedom, our home, and our future. The time has come for all humanity to take a stand...

    What I meant was that people aren't usually honest when they compliment you on your personality or intelligence. They just seem to be looking for something positive to say. Though when someone knows you well, those sort of compliments do hold more weight.

    People, please. Unless she's British, "quite attractive" means "your intelligence is a small penis".

    "Your intelligence is quite attractive."
    "Oh yeah? Well you should see my penis!"
    "OH MAN IS THAT THE TIME WELL ITS BEEN GREAT"
    "No, seriously, it's not where you'd expect it..."
    "*intrigued*"

    I say go for it.

How would you respond to similar comments? Would you say "Thanks" or something more?
    I'd probably compliment someone on their mind before their physical features, so don't be so quick to get offended/disappointed. Some people are less in touch with the physical, or are uncomfortable giving compliments about appearance. People say that [&/or comments about physical features] because they see something in you that's interesting and refreshing, so take it as a compliment, & stop overthinking it, dork. She engaged you, expressing interest. Thanks is a good answer to compliments..
