This is so bizarre. I've always graciously simply said "thank you," for a compliment given and I've never had a guy get pissed about my confidence. Maybe because my "thank you" was genuine and not a vindictive way to simply piss someone off, especially when the compliment was given in genuine kindness.
I think it's funny that they do that. If you tell a man that he is strong and he says thank you. You don't want him to giggle and say "No, I'm not that strong!" They would not expect us to insult them if they said thank you. It's just a weird double standard!
The reason men are offended is because calling out a woman's ass on the street is NOT INTENDED as a compliment. It is a form of aggression, the intent is intimidation. When she doesn't respond in a subserviant/docile manner they get pissed off because they feel less powerful.
Or that by paying a compliment instead of saying thank you, we now owe them something.You have a great body = use it to go out on a date with me = goodYou have a great body = thank you = you're narcissistic/bad
Its because you are talking to jackass fuckboys obviously. When I compliment my girl I WANT her to agree. Why would I want her to be self conscious and think badly of herself. I tell her she looks good because she does, it makes her feel good, and I want her to know Im thinking about her. Thanks seems like the appropriate response? No? What dudes are yall talking to? Lmao
I wonder If i'll get removed for this.The men you are all talking about are ones that cat allYet these women use the phrase "all men"that does speak about all men, and considering 99.9999999999% of the world don't know that I exist.All men is a general term..I can say all women have self awareness issues, that doesn't mean it's right.
I was taught to say "thank you" when complimented and its never rly been a problem for me??....or I'll jokingly say Ikr?? And we'll laugh about it. But this happens w men I'm already friends w that know I'm not arrogant. I dont get cat-called much at all.
I always agree with the compliment. I'm not being conceited. I have self confidence. Not many women do. That's sad. We should ALL believe we're beautiful and not wait for some fool to validate us. And if a guy doesn't like my answer...I probably don't even know the guy or care about him so I don't stress. I walk off in splendor! Lol...
It goes both ways too, I've had somebody in a public setting compliment me on my tattoos when I was out running an errand, I simply replied with thanks and the girl just looked at me in confusion and was like "thanks?" Like it was all i had to say, sorry, not sorry
That's not "men". That's insecure, entitled pricks. Men don't do that. Giving a compliment, just like doing something good for someone, is not done for a reward and especially not to probe if the recipient is more insecure than you.
