    you can take it as a move, a categorical meaning you are placed into, or a window into the other person. if you don't figure out what it means for the other person, you're stuck simply seeing it as one of the first two. there's no real grounding in that. you either feel manipulated or judged. and you eat it up or you spit it out.

    Take the kind words at face value. One girl said to me 'I thought you were pretty plain, then you started talking.' We had a relationship for about 18 months. It was fun. She valued my mind. I ran with it. The finishline remained the same.

    Personally, I would've been insulted.

    Actually, if you refer to this post, you'll see the conversation in its entirety. I think it was a few weeks ago, don't really remember much of what went down because it was like talking to the wall.

    And no, it didn't happen at this forum if that's what you're implying.

    I feel highly complimented when someone flatters my intelligence rather than my physical appearance.

    But seeing how she said my intelligence was attractive was so offensive that I promoted her from Captain to Corporal Obvious.

    If someone says they like something, that doesn't indicate they don't like, or notice, something else. It just means they chose to comment on that one thing for any given reason. More than likely, she thought it would be a socially-appropriate, flattering, and agreeable way to engage with you.

    Response would be "thank you", and preferably a compliment on her qualities in return, or at least segue into pleasant conversation focused on her.

    Why isn't this one of the best compliments? I think that it's the greatest thing a person can say about you!

    Well, I'm glad you asked! It is an acronym for Open Casket Material™. I am hoping that this new expression will replace calling someone "hot" because that is so 20th century. It pretty much means the same thing, though. But please, spread the usage of the phrase! It could be my life's work!!! A small seed could plant the biggest of trees.
