    I absolutely hate compliments. I have giving them and I hate receiving them.

    I never notice little things that someone would compliment on a person, like a new hair cut or the color of their eyes or their outfit. I guess it just isn't my number one priority when I'm communicating with someone. If I do compliment someone it's much more likely to be on something they doesn't have to do with their appearance, like their art skills or knowledge of something.

    I also hate compliments more than anything. Maybe it's just because they usually fall in the realm of "cute" or "pretty" which are words I would never really want to describe me and I hate. Of course, I even hate it when someone says my hair looks good or something along those lines!

    Anyone else feel this way, or am I the only one?

    This is pretty relatable. The word "cute" makes me feel childish

    I get embarrassed by compliments, but I like to give them a lot. I know that might be kinda hypocritical, but I was kinda raised to be one of those people who feels like they have to start every conversation with a compliment and feels rude if they don't apologize every four seconds. I feel like some people like it, while others probably want to slap me in the face sometimes.

    You're not pretty or cute, your hair is bad and I bet you smell like poo too.

    I feel awkward when I get compliments, because I don't often feel that they're justified. Giving them is awkward for me as well, but I try.

    I used to dislike compliments a lot when I was younger though this was due to a lack of self-esteem. I thought so low of myself that anyone who did give me a genuine compliment, I'd feel as if they were lying, that they'd said it either to just make me feel better or to patronise me. It didn't help that I rarely received compliments so for the times that I did, I never really knew how to take them. These days I've grown more used to it but even now I'll deny any compliment I'm given.

    It's weird, as much as I feel good when being complimented on something, I really don't know how to take it. (Probably so much someone could read into my psychology from that alone). Whenever I hear something like "oh you're good looking," or "you're a great singer" or whatever, for some reason it always feels fake to me. Like as if I don't deserve it. As if they're being disingenuous in their compliment to get something.

    Which is strange because I love giving compliments - I give them constantly.

    Am I the only one around here who enjoys being called cute?
    I don't care if anybody associates me with a child or whatever, as long as they don't compare me to a baby.
    Babies are scary! Yes, it's that easy to scare me.
