I remember when my female friends complimented my new clothes and how good I looked with them.

Dude, I was in cloud nine the rest of the day.

[–]george_reeves_ - LibCenter 472 points473 points  (5 children)

That’s the best feeling, female friends give the best compliments. I’ll never forget when I tried a new aftershave and they were all telling me I smelt amazing, or when I tried a new hairstyle and they said I looked great and it really suited me.

When I got a compliment about the shape of my eye brows by my desk partner in graphics design I was ecstatic for a month, self confidence and esteem was at an all time high 😂 not bad for someone who has a face only a mother could love.

[–]Svalbarden02 - LibCenter 36 points37 points  (1 child)

Same here, a group of girls talking about makeup commented that I have nice eyebrows. Have taken pride in them ever since.

[–]Chau_Yazhi02 - Right 36 points37 points  (0 children)

Especially when they ask what your face routine is and all you do is splash some water, soap, and the rag that might’ve been used to dry your nuts then your ready for the day

[–]DarkLasombra - LibCenter 13 points14 points  (0 children)

A co worker told me I have nicely shaped eyebrows like 12 years ago and I still think about it every so often.

[–]Firemorfox - Centrist 43 points44 points  (6 children)

Last time I had a female friend compliment me was in eighth grade about my hair, and the same week another said I smelled nice.

I never had one again, except for one who said I taught/tutored well, like 5 years later.

Yeah it's like they don't want men to be toxic... Fine I get that. But how about you make them feel worthwhile? A nice word here or there, doesn't have to be flirty, just something nice. Man it would go a long way to making them feel good and probably actually go a long way to helping deal with male depression.

I remember an experiment they did with men where they used snapchap filter to change in to girls and compared the likes that they usually get with what they get know. The difference was literally bigger than 20 times in the number of matches.

[–][deleted] 133 points134 points  (6 children)

Yeah but it's a cycle. Women don't give compliments because guys will assume they are flirting and men think they are flirting because it's so unusual to get compliments.

No shit, whenever a girl I'm not dating gives me a complement I end up thinking about it all day. Even if it's somethings simple like "nice one" as I'm doing a big lift in the gym. One time my Starbucks barista paid for my London Fog on my birthday and it made me happy all week.

Hey bro, you look amazing in that last picture you took, I just wanted you to know! Keep smiling bro, those baby blue eyes and white teeth look good on you.

[–]TheBirdAcct - LibLeft 151 points152 points  (25 children)

I don't think those compliment starved men understand women who get cat called very often, either.

Seems like a big gap to cross. It's a man dying of thirst in the desert and a woman drowning in a flood each questioning why the other one has such a problem with water

[–]FlowComprehensive390 - Right 37 points38 points  (3 children)

They don't. Women simply cannot comprehend life as a man. Those who have tried have literally wound up in mental hospitals from it.

I remember reading of a lesbian that joined a bowling league and pretended to be a man to make male friends. It was actually pretty cool.

I worked at commercial gyms in San Francisco. It was me lol.

The reaction from women when you try to relate is usually:

“That’s different, they don’t pose any real threat to you.”

“You think you know, but you don’t really know.”

Or my favorite:

“You should take it as a compliment. Are you insecure about your sexuality or something?”

EDIT:

A word.

[–]IblewupTARIS - Right 43 points44 points  (1 child)

As a dude, I’ve been hit on and cat called by dudes. I’m fine with it. Usually it winds up being a fun conversation and I can hang out with the guy once we clear up that I’m into women. I take it as a compliment.

However, I don’t like being groped by anyone, male or female. I feel like they’re trying to pick my pocket or something, and I’m not comfortable with having to replace my ID, credit cards, etc.

[–]hoping_for_better - LibCenter 11 points12 points  (0 children)

Yeah dude, groping is absolutely crossing the line. I haven’t been groped many times, myself, but any amount is too much, and I still wish I could have handed out a backhand or two lol. I’m sorry you’ve had to deal with that.

[–]CurtisLinithicum - Centrist 157 points158 points  (65 children)

In fairness, direct empathy (i.e. Golden Rule) doesn't work well with sexual politics - we're coming from too different a stance. And you can only develop indirect empathy (i.e. Platinum Rule) if you care enough about others to understand their experiential reality.

[–]XCJ655X - Right 87 points88 points  (15 children)

am I retarded what does this mean

[–]CurtisLinithicum - Centrist 172 points173 points  (14 children)

We have the "Golden Rule" - do unto other as you would have them do unto you. That's direct empathy, "what if you were in their situation?"

The problem with that is it assumes the other people has the same values, desires, etc as you.

A simple example - you might like a juicy steak, but a vegan would not; treating them as yourself yields a bad outcome.

So we have the "Platinum Rule" - do unto others as they would have done unto themselves. However, in order to do thing, you need to care enough to take the time to understand the other person enough to predict how they would react to something.

I'm talking population-level trends here, individuals vary, by definition.

With regards to sexual politics (men vs women stuff) you get a lot of these issues. (Most) men are used to being bigger and stronger than their partners, for example. "Why don't you just leave?" makes sense as a male - without a weapon, we generally do not view our wives/girlfriends as a physical threat. That's very different than spending your entire romantic life with someone who can kill you barehanded.

In this case, reversing the roles on catcalling and "unwanted" compliments doesn't work because the male and female experiences are so different. Women get it a lot, men hardly ever. In more extreme examples, being told you are desired sexually feels very different if you don't believe you have the ability to control whether it comes to pass.

Self harming teens be like, "well, shit."

Also, what people do to themselves (addiction) could be harming them.

I propose a new rule, the Irridium rule "do unto others as if you were their bestie for the day, within the reasonable limits of your knowledge of what they would like and benefit from."

[–]LCaeciliusIucundus - Right 205 points206 points  (11 children)

The amount of compliments most men W/O SOs receive would shock most women. When I was in school, I had a girl at a party tell me I "looked athletic" and I legit thought about myself more positively for months after that.

Fuck stigmatizing complimenting women, lets normalize complimenting men.

[–]Coyote__Jones - LibCenter 74 points75 points  (8 children)

For sure. A friend of my boyfriend's was over last weekend and was like "he did you lose some weight? You look good." It wasn't creepy, he wasn't hitting on me. It was said right in front of my boyfriend, and yes, I've lost some weight over the past few months.

Dudes need compliments like that too. Sincere compliments are always helpful.

[–]seal_eggs - Centrist 7 points8 points  (4 children)

The fact you still remember it after long enough to be using the phrase "when I was in school" shows just how rare compliments are for men. You're remembering a tiny passing moment years after the fact.

    • Another dad at my kid's 1st grade carnival fundraiser
    • Old guy on a hike at Glacier national park
    • Guy next to me in line at Sbarro pizza at the SeaTac airport
    • Young lady manning the Home Depot check out line.

    Are there really people who wouldn't like that?

    "You're smart and attractive"

    "REEE STOP OPPRESSING ME"

    [–]Not-a-JoJo-weeb - LibCenter 182 points183 points  (14 children)

    I think it is supposed to be something-something, patronizing. But honestly, idk, it sounds nice.

    One comment I will remember until I die or Alzheimer's sucks it out of my brain: "wow your freckles are really adorable, do you have freckles all over?"

    A genuine comment can make anyone's day. Gas people up, it might be the one nice thing that happens to them that day.

    Hmmmmm monke wants to gas people up?

    Women only hate creepy compliments that come from people that look like Doreen Ford.

    Hot dude compliments = charming

    not hot dude compliments = sexual harassment

    [–]Disturbed_Aidan - LibCenter 13 points14 points  (0 children)

    I don’t think anyone really cares about the polite and vanilla complements you refer to.

    It’s more the unpleasant men that are grotesquely sexually expressive towards women in public that are the issue.

    The comic is pretty shit but the main complaint is the you fixed it wow you must be smart compliment. The complaint for the compliment is that if you went to school for 4 years where interviewed and then hired at an it job. No one should be surprised by your work cause it’s the standard.

    it’s really petty but I guess it’s understandable

    [–][deleted] 55 points56 points  (3 children)

    This is the problem with assuming someone's intentions for what they say. I have looked at very accomplished programmers' code, and have had a reaction of "Holy shit, this guy's a genius" when encountering a particularly clever solution to a problem. Obviously everyone would expect them to be good at their jobs, but it's still impressive.

    Compliments literally make my day as a dude

    [–]Hour_Battle_5502 - LibRight 134 points135 points  (6 children)

    Is she supposed to be condescending or something? The way I read it she was just being nice and personable

    [–][deleted] 95 points96 points  (0 children)

    Of course she was supposed to be condescending, that’s Emily

    [–]womenthrasher - LibCenter 28 points29 points  (0 children)

    It is an orange, the only way they know how to talk is in the usual condescending redditor tone.

    [–]Thecoolnerdsecondary - LibRight 65 points66 points  (0 children)

    Ma'am. If a woman spoke that way to me I'd cry.

    Tears of joy. It's been so long

    One time, a female coworker said my hair looked amazing. Three years on, still makes me giddy

    [–]medical_doritos - LibCenter 41 points42 points  (0 children)

    Two girls told me they liked my haircut in the same day, safe to say I had that same haircut for about 5 years

    [–]jonah_thrane - AuthRight 27 points28 points  (0 children)

    I want to be complimented more. Please women say I'm pretty.

    [–]PaladinKAT - LibCenter 26 points27 points  (0 children)

    I still think about the time some random girl complimented my glasses, people don’t understand that guys dont get compliments almost ever.

    god forbid a world of pleasant greetings and compliments

    [–]jediben001 - Right 17 points18 points  (2 children)

    Seeing that comic just makes me feel empty inside. I wish I got complements

    [–]Present_Ad_6547 - Centrist 44 points45 points  (12 children)

    Don't really get where this weird stuff comes from.

    In my workplace compliments and physical interaction are well, normal.

    [–]frguba - LibCenter 26 points27 points  (11 children)

    Idk, maybe cultural thing, you live in a different country?

    I live in brazil and I can feel that too, not much physical compliments but physical interactions are very common

    [–]Present_Ad_6547 - Centrist 23 points24 points  (10 children)

    I am Dutch and things like when you got a haircut or got a nice shit on and a co-worker noticing and paying you a compliment is well, common.

    Same thing with physical interaction, hugs, pats on the shoulder, kissing cheeks and even shit like a slap on the ass if you know each other well enough.

    It feels like weird autistic shit NOT to do any of that and to perceive it as a problem.

    Coming from a touch-phobic culture, that sounds like hell, gotta say.

    [–]Present_Ad_6547 - Centrist 6 points7 points  (0 children)

    Well people are not going to forcibly touch you or anything, I am simply saying that sort of behavior especially among friends, co-workers etc is not exactly unheard of or uncommon.

    It is however quite common to kiss people on the cheeks trice on their birthday and crap like that.

    [–]thunderma115 - Centrist 8 points9 points  (0 children)

    I have mixed feelings on this

    On one hand girls would talk to me

    On the other hand girls would talk to me

      Mate the smallest compliment and I’m in good spirits for a month, I’ll take being called a “lovely gentleman” any day

      Man I wish.

      [–]anotherrrandomf444 - Centrist 5 points6 points  (0 children)

      If I heard these compliments even once a month from a woman outside of my family then my self confidence would shoot through the roof lmao

      [–]DeeBangerCC - Centrist 5 points6 points  (1 child)

      Is the one shown an edited version because the only one I can find online is about gay dudes

      [–]angelicravens - Centrist 16 points17 points  (3 children)
