    I'd be really chuffed if someone complimented me, male or female.

    Quite often I'll be walking down the street and see a woman with a pretty smile, I'd love to be able to go up and say, 'hi you've got a great smile' but these days it'd be seen as some kind of preditory advance.

    Try body language its quite harmless like smiling back . Or use eye contact. She will either look away or keep into your gaze and then you can initiate a smile.

    Interesting thread. I'm always complimenting my Wife, but she does dismiss them a bit too off hand, she has always been very modest and I would say not confident in her body image, but very confident in her abilities at work etc.. As for me I lost confidence in my body image during the "working years" which has recently ended fortunately ! Lost weight and getting very trim again now. I guess the compliments I've had over this have been from female friends only, interesting that. We tend to be in situations with friends and family rather than clubs and pubs so not had any compliments from strangers. I guess the closest I can think is a few years back at a charity ball where one of our female friends started to flirt outrageously with me; her marriage was going through a rough patch and they are now divorced, quelle surprise. Of course I just politely tried to ignore her, although her low cut ball gown was somewhat distracting 😀

    If you did go out to clubs ,you will find that the types of women that will chase tend to be younger. I think its because they are looking for a guy with experience and perhaps more grown up and loyal.

    I'm so loved up with my Wife, not sure I would cope with being chased, I'm too polite

    It was very nice to receive another  compliment as a couple.

    This lady who started chatting to my Mrs has been through 2 divorces and our chemistry and behaviour has put fresh faith into her that  "love" can still be found out there. She had been watching us for a few weeks and very was impressed with the chemistry that flows beween us.

    Personally it really doesn’t bother me and I’m happy to receive or give a compliment from or to anyone! Although I am bisexual anyways, I always love a compliment from a female more just because it’s nice to see women building other women up and it’s the same when men do the same with other men! All about spreading the love haha! No but it’s just a compliment and they will always be gladly excepted from me and I love giving them out because you never know how much of a positive effect it’ll have on someone to hear something positive being said about them 😊

    Self doubt makes me have some problems taking it... but enough reinforcement with time helps.
