I would assume compliments might be phrased the same, yet they won't have the same effect on people. It all depends, doesn't it? What is your story? No matter how ordinary or unimaginative a compliment might have sounded, how did it make you feel and why?

That is awesome!
LOL -- thanks for the smile -- great compliment... you certainly are girly. mmmwwwaaaah
On Halloween, I was asked "Is that your real hair or wig?" It was kind of dark, but not that dark. I had a purple wig on. "You look like Lady Gaga!" Not my favourite, but the woman meant it as a compliment. My son was ECSTATIC! Lady Gaga, Lady .
That is a winner!
Definitely a winner!
Probably the best compliment he gave me may or may not have been meant as one. I was about 3 & heard him tell mother: "She's a very determined little girl!" That's reassured me for a lifetime: I'm determined! Daddy said so! A shot of courage!
My son used to tell me "Mom, you are fat!" Without blinking, I would proceed "But am I beautiful?" "Yes, you are". "Well, that makes me fat and beautiful". While it is not exactly a compliment, but it is simply unforgettable.
And now, you remember it - you are tough, you managed and now you are happy. You are tough, you are a woman and you are appreciated for both! This compliment section really makes me feel better!!!
I agree those compliments - that touch our core - are the best. Mine is "I've just had an erection!" sounds like an obscenity (or a case of "who cares anyway?!"), but it was the context that made it so memorable!!!
Sweet! ....... By the various profile photo's you have had I can understand fully why he said that..... regardless of the context! Hugs
Thank you! You make me remember more things that I have heard! I do, too, say to people and women (being a woman myself and, no, I am not a homosexual, so if i say it - it's not to to come on to...) - "You are beautiful!!!"
Epigramman, you are not starved for adoration! The whole HubPages Universe adores you!!! Yet, you are starving for the something that I would say is ... - oh, I don't know ... Whatever I say, Colin, you know, I support you!
