A lot of people, myself included, seem to have trouble sometimes with both giving and receiving compliments. I think when it comes to complimenting girls especially, I have trouble expressing what I really think, because I'm worried it'll be taken as a pass, rather than just a compliment; a function of my fear of becoming "that guy" (I hate that guy). As for receiving compliments, I always end up giving the impression that they bounce right off of me, when deep down I'm quite pleased, and wish to receive it gracefully. I've been trying to give out more compliments lately. What do you think?
