compliments

do you get them often? do you take them well? what is your favorite compliment to receive, physically?

yes, you have to pick a favorite. and it's completely okay to enjoy hearing someone say something nice about you. even if getting compliments makes you uncomfortable, some part of you must think it's nice, right? so what is it for you? what one compliment just blows you out of the water everytime you hear it? it's feel good about yourself day here at ster's! :)

for me, it is so extremely rare that anyone compliments me on my eyes. and i really do love my eye color. so when someone does say something nice about them, i genuinely think it's so cool, kind and sweet. i don't care what their reasons are, but eye compliments make me swoony!

i remember when boyfriend complimented me on my eyes the first day i met him. i tried to call his bullshit by closing my eyes and asking him, "oh really? what color are they, then?" he answered immediately. and he was right! guess he showed me.

so that's what it is for me. the eyes. what is it for you?

Ooooh, I'm up first! You do have pretty eyes and they're very expressive too. :)

I'll take any compliment given when I'm wearing a bathing suit. Honestly, what girl feels comfortable prancing around in two little pieces of material that barely covers her? So, when I was asked this summer (in said bikini) if I worked out regularly because I always looked so tone, I thought that was the SHIT! Oh yeah! :)

All you gotta tell me is that I look skinny! That's all I care about! LOL I'm gonna try hard to check in with you guys tonight while I'm carving my 12 monogrammed pumpkins! lol Don't ask.

Don't do compliments well at all.

You're moving the show up 30 minutes. Ouch. I will probably miss the first 20-30 minutes, but if it's like last time, the last half was the best part.

I'll take any compliment! I like compliments about my skin.

Dontcha think specific compliments are better and truer than "Oh, you're gorgeous/beautiful/hot"?

Hey ster, you have pretty eyes. I actually always notice peoples eyes too and I love mine, so I love it when people notice mine too. I also love it when people say that my outfit is great...especially because in the mornings I am never happy with my wardrobe. So it's like a boost on a bad clothes day.

Becky said...

aww you are gorgeous jenn and i do love your eyes:) thats the compliment i like to get the most. either my eyes or smile.

i'll call you tonite!

I love compliments and I am not too proud to take them as long as they are sincere!

Hearing someone say that I'm looking thinner is always welcome and worth hearing. Also, compliments about my eyes are appealing, too.

DDM said...

My most complimented feature is my eyes. Because baby....THEY'RE HUGE. I enjoy the eye compliments, but because I'm bug eyed and people can't get past them, I really enjoy any other compliment that I get. I'm bashful but thankful for compliments.

DDM said...

Also, CRAP. I can't chat tonight at 7pm, the boy doesn't go to bed until 8. But I will check in once he's down for the count.

i do NOT take compliments well.

but i think probably one of the best compliments someone can give me is about my cooking (must be the jewish mother in me) or baking.

also? if you tell me i look skinny, i might kiss you.

I like to give compliments but I find it hard to take them...I get compliments on my smile...(Thank you very much..you actually complimented my smile) I guess I like it. It makes me feel good because honestly, I'm not all that crazy about my smile...I think it's too mouthy!

You my dear, are gorgeous. You truly are stunning and very photogenic. That boyfriend of yours is one lucky dude!!!! :)

I think I take them well, but I tend to gush when I say thank you - as if someone just handed me $100 instead of saying I have nice eyes.

I can't think of one I get regularly, but one that made me laugh was at my high school reunion last summer from a guy who never gave me a second look in high school. He said I looked great, and his eyes lingered a bit too long on my chest, so I said thank you, but stop staring at my tits. Totally threw him for a loop.

I still appreciated the compliment though.

You are gorgeous girl, eyes and all. Hottie MO-lottie :)

I like it when people tell me they like my hair. I get swoony about that one!

Elizabeth said...

Co-host? Pick me! I'll have to make sure we don't have any other pre-Thanksgiving stuff to do, and I might have to do laundry WHILE on the phone, but I'll chat with ya!

My favorite compliment is "are you losing weight?"

Dana said...

Co-host? That sounds like fun!

I'm going to try to call in tonight!

Elizabeth said...

Hey Ster, I'm on hold!!!

Becky said...

i love you point! you can have matt any time:)

love you jenn! so fun chatting. can't wait to hear it tomorrow! elizabeth---you were so fun!

coffeygirlb said...

Hmm, with me i'd have to say hair or eyes as well. I think the eyes are just such a huge telling aspect of the face that they are inevitably noticed right away. I really like my eye color too. Blue-eyes rock! Of course it never hurts for someone to tell me I look skinny:) Happy thanksgiving girl!

Suebob said...

Anonymous said...

I can't believe I missed it. I thought I would be through with work by 9:30 - but I didn't get to the computer until just after 10 my time (8 your time).

I won't miss again. Hopefully I can hear the replay tomorrow or Friday!

Happy Thanksgiving!

jennster said...

I like when people compliment my beard, not that many do. Not unless 'you look like Jesus' is a compliment anyway.

Loved the show.

Jo said...

Hmmm, I like compliments on my eyes, too, and I get that one a lot so it's nice. My favorite compliment ever that I've gotten just a few times is, "God, you're so thin but you've got the nices curves..." That one makes me hot:)
