What do people compliment you on a lot?

It could be a personality trait, professional ability, physical feature, whatever...

For me, it's my eyebrows. Men, women and children compliment them. And my eye makeup.

    My eyes 1st, because they are light green and my personality 2nd, because I'm very outgoing, a people person, and I' m funny.
    From Michael Berg:

    Every person has a unique connection to the Creator that can never be extinguished, and every person has a great soul that can manifest important things in our world. To make a person feel less than they are because of something inside themselves, be it faith, race, or sexual orientation, is the greatest sin of all."

    I've visited your blog occasionally--I agree--you are pretty!

    Fashion sense, booty and I am often told that I always have the right way of wording things. I take that as a compliment :)

    smile, butt, hair, face, personality wise funny. No one has actually complimented me in a long time, I think it's because I feel ugly, and I think people can sense when you feel ugly.

    My hair
    My sense of humor
    My eyes (I was hit by green on both sides of the family)
    My work ethic and ability to handle things professionally
    My voice on the radio. I have even received compliments from people in neighboring states, which surprised me, but was incredibly nice to hear.
    When I hear terms like "hipster" I think, who told cliques they could leave high school??

    My hair. I started locing my hair in April.
    My smile.
    I get told I'm pretty a lot (I cringe saying that, but it's true)
    I get told that I'm easy to get along with at work. My family and friends would completely disagree. :laughing4:

    My hair gets complimented most often, but after that, I'd say my smile. I always thought I had pretty eyes, but then a few months ago, one of the junior high kids I volunteer with told me I have "crazy eyes." :lol: So, maybe I was wrong!? She was like "when I met you, I knew you were related to _____, because you both have crazy eyes!" Thanks?

    Eyes, hair, makeup even though I keep it simple and do see what the big deal is, hands, lips. I get told I'm beautiful or pretty often, but I'm like blah because my weight is up so I think I trip about it a lot. Anyways other than that people compliment me on being very nice, sweet, creative, honest and understanding and strong.
  • CurlyminxCurlyminx Posts: 5,581Registered Users
    My eyes. They are sort of grey/green/blue.
    My smile. I like this one the most because it is usually said in a surpised voice.
    My sense of direction.
    I'm told I'm friendly and easy-going at work too. I'm SURE that, other than mom and dad, everyone else in my personal life would disagree.

    Current hair styling technique: rake with a scrunch at the end. (works with my coarse hair)

    I get told I'm smart and articulate a lot, also that I'm funny.

    Physically I've been told I'm beautiful, and have nice eyes.

    Best qualities are usually also the worst.

    What some see as positives other see as too opinionated, threatening and vain. Meh.

    The compliment I get most often from men and women is that I'm "pretty"...and if my husband is with me for some reason they will direct the compliment at him and say "your wife is pretty" and he will say "thanks" and I'll just be standing there wondering why no one is talking directly to me...its a bit weird!
    I get a lot of compliments on my makeup, people always ask me if it is professionally done or where I go to get it done...I do it myself and often end up having a discussion about it and giving tips....Some of these makeup companies should really be paying me by now with the amount of business I get them.
    People have also frequently compliment my sense of humour, my eyes, my lips and my fingers...Might sound weird but apparently I have elegant hands

    Sometimes people see things in you that you dont notice yourself I guess.
