There is a difference between being grateful and gracious versus being arrogant and conceited. It's as if it's offensive for a man to tell a woman she's pretty... for many it's not-- it's just kind and truthful. Congratulations if its true for you but no need to be obnoxious!
Whatever happened to saying thank you when you receive a compliment? It's what I do. Saves a shit ton of drama. Of course, I'm not offended by much so maybe there is that.
I think I know why this makes men angry. Men have a deep rooted desire to be "needed". The thing is, women don't NEED men. We can work on our own cars, kill our own bugs, open jars, give ourselves compliments, open businesses, lead companies, compete in politics, learn a trade. There is literally nothing a woman is not capable of except maybe peeing standing up.
So here's the thing, men need to learn to be satisfied with being WANTED and that's a much more difficult ask. You have to earn your place in a woman's life instead of expecting one. I think that's a good portion of it. We don't need you to compliment us. So with one less way men are not able to satisfy that need to be needed then ensues frustration and rage.
thats because men don't like a taste of their own medicine and are threatened by a verys self confident woman and view it as cocky....hey douchebag guys... most of you are cocky!
Hey, can we just start saying 'some men' and 'some women'. Painting with such a broad brush as this is what causes this drama. Some people are assholes. Ignore them and move on.
Lol funny.. this works with gay men as well... I remember doing this when used to be on popular apps like scruff and Grindr lol. Great read!
I find that behavior odd. If I compliment a woman, a thank you or even a confident response is what I hope for. These boys lack of maturity is misogyny to a T.
My go to is to respond creepily. "Your eyes are so beautiful." "Thanks, I plan on donating them to science." "Your hair smells nice." "Thanks, I washed it today."
Why do you want to piss people off? If you don't want to engage in a conversation, just keep doing whatever you were doing. Some people really have too much time and mind space to spare. And not to mention- some people are obviously hanging out with the wrong crowd/wrong end of town if "thanks" lead to profanities.
I remember in my twenties, when a man commented that I had nice "tits", I said " thanks and you have a nice as@, btw.."He got soooo offended, he walked away.Dish it out but can't take it, lol.😂
