I don't want to brag, but someone today gave me the nicest compliment I've ever received in my life. It was kind of out of blue and really took me aback, but wow, it's good for morale. It came from a person who's a casual acquaintance that I see maybe once or twice a year, which made it all the more surprising. Totally blew me away.

(And no, it wasn't about my sexual prowess, which made it even more surprising since that's usually where I get my best feedback.)

Anyone else ever have a moment like that where you got very strong positive feedback that was completely unexpected?

You can't have a build up like that and not say the compliment.

Y'know, I pondered adding it, but I'm not sure if it would dilute it by doing so. And I really don't want to crow about the compliment itself. It's more about the warm and fuzzy that it gave me.

It made me think that I really need to be more open about complimenting other people besides Jamaal Charles and Brandon Flowers.

I talked to a really nice guy tonight at a local event.

He was visiting for a little while and turns out he's a detective on a boarder town in Texas.
I was really interested in what he had to say and I asked about the type of projects he works on. He began telling me of his latest case from this week and how quickly they had solved a murder.

He said the key piece of evidence was the weapon and he was able to identify it from a visual examination of the wound. The story began when they rolled up to the scene and his partner asked him what he thought. He said "I'm pretty sure the murder weapon is a golf gun". "A golf gun? how do you know that?" replied the partner.

"easy he said, I know it's a rare golf gun, because it made a hole in Juan".

i congratulated him on his big success and he told me I was an excellent listener.

One compliment you should never give a single woman...

"If I wasn't already married, I'd ask you out/hit on you."

Even if you mean it, it's one of those compliments that comes across as you just trying to say something nice. I mean, what good does a compliment like that do for me? If you think I'm that great, then talk one of your single friends into asking me out.

Yeah, that's a good point, I guess. I could see where it would have a hollow ring to it. I'll say too, though, that I think it's easier for a married guy to make an open statement like that than it is for a single guy, because we can say it without any fear of rejection. The wedding ring is a free pass for making a statement like that.

I've always sucked at taking compliments, well at least the times I've sucked at it still stand out to me.

I remember in college, me and my roommate I went over to a friends dorm to watch TV, which was an all girls dorm. On the way in, the friends' CA was working the front desk, and my roomate (who was over there a lot more than me) recognized her and stopped to talk for a second, and then she and I started talking for a bit as well. He went on to the room and I talked for another couple minutes later before leaving as well.

A few days later, one of the friends said that she talked to CA and she said that I was "cute". I handled it like an ass and was dissappointed and the girl asked me why I didn't take that as a compliment. I told her that them saying I was "cute" gave me the impression of them thinking I was just a kid.

Such an idiot I was....she was smokin, although by the time I was older and knew better the freshman 15 she had avoided at the time I speak of above caught up to her and then some, else I might have tried to follow up on the chance I squandered earlier in life.


Oh yeah....and ya'll are all swell.
