sometimes they are empty. people want to be nice and lie. they are false compliments.

like telling someone "yes, your idea for that movie you call Cave Mom, the one where some weird rift brings a 'cavewoman' into modren day and she shacks up with the widowed archaeologist and his 4 children, one of which is a typical agnsty teen with problems, and a 8 year old with fears and issues and no self essteme. it would make a great film!"

or telling someone who has half a face, a flipper for an arm and obscenity that they are pretty.

It's true! We are up our own arses and it's also because we are suspicious, and think 'What do you want?'

Gushing, "I love you!You're the greatest ever!" is a touch over effusive. I think most people, even "Brits" are quite happy to accept sincere sounding compliments even from those they don't know.

Not that I get that many compliments. On the rare occasion when one came my way, a grin and a mumbled "Aw, shucks" was my response. I can comment more on the matter of Giving compliments. I find that when it comes to complimenting beautiful young (in my case, anywhere under 50yo) ladies it comes much easier for a man well past the "predatory" age. The element of suspected shady intentions is absent. Well into my 80-ties I used to break off a bloom or two from a flowering bush in my supemarket car park before walking in and present it to this or that young lady bank teller or at the deli counter or wherever and everywhere I was rewarded by a sweet smile. Nobody was embarrassed and the day was brighter for both parties.

So - I watched the video righjt through. It was all about learning 'how to TAKE compliments' and othing aty all about learning how to GIVE them.

IMO, if you practice giving compliments it then becomes much easier learing how to recieve them.
So start voicing your thoughts and telling that woman sitting opposite you on the bus what a lovely scarf she's wearing, that child what lovely manners he has, etc. Then, when soneone compliments you it won't see so alien. (Besides, think how many people's days you can brghten up with just a few priceless words that cost you nothing.)
