A sonographer told me I have the most beautiful liver she’s ever seen. That was kind of nice.

Oh, and a hand cream salesman outside a supermarket told me as I walked by that I had beautiful hands.  It wasn’t until after I’d said thank you (because I couldn’t think of anything else to say) and continued walking past (their hand cream is severely overpriced) that I realised both my hands were in my coat pockets and he couldn’t see them.

I’ve been told on several occasions that I have, “very graceful hand gestures.” I’ll take the compliment, but it’s kind of strange to have someone say something like that. I never know how to react. Maybe I should just wave at them? 😉

I’ve been told I have “cow eyes”. Not something I’ve ever heard before, but apparently it just means I have long lashes that go down a bit before they curl up?

My Fiance & I were for some reason discussing strippers.

He turned to me & said ‘You would make an excellent stripper, because you have such an engaging personality!”

Ummmmm.. thanks babe!!!!!!!!!!??????????

“You look like a schoolgirl!” from a colleague of my mom, an aging professor. I’m 29. Um, thanks? Creepy much?

I write in cursive and have since I was in like 2nd grade or whatever, one time in high school I had a subsitute professor who took my test and looked at it and thenl ooked at me and went “Are you a foreign exchange student?!” and was super excited and I was like “…no.” and he’s like “Oh, you have beautiful writing, like somebody from switzerland.” I was like “…Thank you.” and sat down.

That to this day is the weirdest compliment I’ve gotten.

Except for my FI’s brother who thinks me scar on my stomach is the coolest scar ever, but hey.

“You don’t look like an engineer!” I used to get this so-called compliment a lot when I was younger.  

I have always thought that was such a back-handed compliment.  What does an engineer look like?  Is a 20/30-something lady not capable of doing a high-tech job??

A guy on the street told me I had a beautiful aura one time. I actually liked that compliment better than most compliments I get because it didn’t have anything to do with my looks. I’ve always thought compliments based on looks were boring. “Oh, I love how your nose is positioned on your face!”

I once had a famous comedian from the UK compliment me on my thighs.  I said thanks but it was weird.

HappySideUp:  I’ve gotten some weird compliments on my eyebrows, too! This guy I used to work with once leaned over and said “You’ve got the best eyebrows in this room.” Now that’s one strange compliment!

allyfally:  I was told that I have alabaster skin. I had no idea what that was at the time and thought it was an insult. Apparently he thought my pale ivory skin was soft and lucious — okay random stranger, thank you!

I get a lot of compliments on my skin, but it’s usually awkward. A lot of people will just cut the crap and say “I like your skin.” And in the last month or so, I’ve been getting compliments on my handwriting near-daily at work. Which is bizarre, because my handwriting hasn’t changed and neither has my profession for the last couple of years. 

BEST weird/ bad compliment: A (now former) friend once told me I looked like “an ugly ScarJo.” When I told him that was NOT a compliment, he explained that Scarlett Johansson is so hot, that being an ugly version of her is still high praise. Uh… thanks? 

Honorable mention: a man once pushed past a friend and I on an escalator, glanced over his shoulder to apologize, stopped, looked me in the face and said “Wow, you’re really pretty!”, as if shocked, and then continued running down the escalator. It wasn’t so much the compliment I found odd, it was how STUNNED he was. As if I’d looked like an ugly person from behind. 

All of these weird doctor compliments are creeping me out. Glad I have never gotten any of those!

I am a twin and was once told “You’re the prettier twin” – whilst infront of my sister. 

They followed this with “Just kidding.” 

 

I didn’t know what to think of this (did they just compliment me or insult me?) – and by the way we’re identical.

an old supervisor of mine told me that I had sugar lips. 

 

Thanks! 😕
