This is a rant…
I’ve just been witness to a man giving a woman a compliment about an item of her clothing. It wasn’t creepy or false it appeared to be a genuine compliment. Just as I was thinking what a nice thing to do, she turned on him and gave him a dressing down about being sexist. I stood quietly listening to this tirade against the poor man.
I’m not surprised men back down from being gallant if this is the way some women react to a compliment, there are ways to accept a compliment and walk away (even if it wasn’t one you wanted) without being rude. It’s really simple …
- Say thank you.
- Walk away.
Jeez…. it’s so easy.
Compliments are lovely, they are spoken to make your day better and make you feel good and I hope everyone will continue to offer compliments and receive them in good grace.
