When a guy compliments a girl, why do they automatically reject it?

    We are being modest. Plus, it actually depends if the guy say it sincerely or just mucking about.

    i think that they feel unsure of themselves and that makes them do it
    or they just don't think its true even if they r smoking hot

    I don't know about other girls, but I accept compliments, just a polite thank you, and a smile and walk away or whatever. I guess girls do it mostly because they don't want to seem like their fishing for compliments, but deep down they really appreciate that you noticed :D

    why do many girls (i'm definitely not saying all) insist on being right?

    some girls with low self esteem do that.
    also man are just giving compliments to get "somewhere" so sometimes the compliment is not what they really think of the woman.

    i guess they think that the man dont respect them and they dont want to accept his compliments

    When girls do that, it's usually NOT because they don't think it's true, it's usually because they want people to think they don't think it's true. Does that make sense? Of course not. Occasionally they have low self esteem, but in that case, they would thank you for the compliment, surely? I don't actually know. I think it's so when they say like: I'm not pretty, the guy will say: Yes, you are.
    It's probably one of our many ways of getting guys. I'm a girl, but I haven't had time to read all these rules we seem to live by yet.

    We think what they're telling us is an outright lie...well at least that's what i think....i also think that guys just say that because they want to crawl in our pants and nothing else...

    That's sad... what has our society become when an honest man can't simply express his opinion to a nice lady and not be judged negatively by it. Just because MOST men that come across you in a negative manner, doesn't mean that every man is trying to get inside your pants.
  • The hea... Smokey 2009/02/12 07:36:32
    The heartless
    well i have had some bad experiences regarding males and that's all they ever cared about- getting into my pants.....so when they make a comeon like "you're gorgeous" - that to me simply implies- wanna get in bed? It seems that's all men care about....They don't want a real relationship or commitment- just sex with no strings attached.

    My wife married me and I'm a gentleman. Open the doors, massage her feet, and continually tell her I appreciate her. You can find a good man! Trust me!

    You would be one of the few good men outthere....seriously the dating game sucks and i don't want to be apart of it...i would rather stay single for the rest of my life, than try to find the perfect man....i simply couldn't be bothered because these days men like i stated in my last posts are just clearly non caring and just want to get into your pants and that's it.

    i also don't take compliments well because i can never tell if the person is being nice or simply lying...so i will take the second choice and say they're are usually lying to me.

    I really hate the fact that so many jerks have been in your life. I dislike using old sayings, but in your case, I'd like to make on plea. "It is better to have loved and lost, than to have never loved at all."

    Well you're are very kind but that saying isn't true in my case..i didn't love any of the people i was with and they didn't love me so i have no idea what love is all about- ....so i will apply it to my cat he is my bestfriend in the whole world....sad but true thanx for being so kind...

    That's nice. What kind of cat do you have? I kinda understand where you're coming from because my first wife cheated on me. I was heartbroken and swore to never marry again. But four months ago, I got married to the love of my life. You see, the worst moment of my life, became the best part of my life. Before getting remarried, I stayed single for over 15 years. I was a single parent and I raised my daughter since she was 7 years old. Now she's in college. Life is funny at times. When you're not looking, maybe, just maybe you'll fall in love.

    My thoughts are with you and I wish you the best. Oh, one more thing. There's nothing wrong in being alone either. You can be happy without being in a relationship. First, you have to love yourself! And spend some good quality time on vacation or take a weekend trip somewhere. Enjoy life!

    but, what I do know is that if you already know, or date that woman, you sure as hell better compliment her if something changes regardless of the reaction. And do it quickly, if she colors her hair 1/2 a shade lighter/darker or she's wearing a new outfit but you don't mention it for hours, or worse, days later you are in for a S*** storm because you didn't notice immediately.

    in my personal case I do it because I can't believe someone would say something nice about me...bad self esteem issues...but I have been working on it. Plus I know sometimes it's just hard to take it as truth...because who knows if they are being honest or not.
