Compliments People Have Given You!

Alright, I haven’t seen one of these threads in a while (correct me if I’m wrong), so let’s all post the compliments we have received - whether the compliments were intended or not.

I don’t really think I need to say this, but let’s keep negativity to a minimum. Nobody cares if you’re 20lbs heavier than someone else etc.

Anyway, for my own story:

An uncle I hadn’t seen in a while met me the other day, and though he’s usually very calm and collected, he just burst out with a “holy shit!” as he saw me, and proceeded to pull me away later, to ask me if I was on something. That felt pretty good.

Your turn!

I had a girl I was seeing tell me that she had showed a few of her friends a pic of me in it, and I was described as having “arms that look like other peoples’ legs” -lol

“You don’t even look like the same person.”

Well. I won’t get too specific, but dropping 100+ lbs at some point definitely warrants compliments from people you haven’t seen in a while. It truly got really annoying though, telling people that my “magical secret” to losing weight was diet and exercise.

I hooked up with this college girl about a year ago and as we were getting into it, she could not take her hands off my arms. Dirty talk was impossible, all she said was “OH MY GOD your arms are so sexy!”

“So hard!!”

“Thats so hot!”

Look at my pictures and you will see why I found this to be particularly funny. Definitely not a big guy, yet.

i cant really think of any overly unique ones. most are the same ole “wow youre huge, when did you get so big?, are you on steroids? no, seriously are you on steroids? hey muscles, you have a mad nice body, put your shirt on please, your arms are too big for your head (ive heard this from different people and no idea what it means cause my arms arent even big)” i hear something every day so im pretty used to it. its nice when a cute girl says something or when youre feeling kinda down about a lack of progression but when like your moms friends say something its just creepy.

oh i thought of a sorta unique one. well theres this homeless guy i see from time to time (he told me he lived in the woods for like 7 months). i saw him once at my store and once at Wendy’s and he always asks me if a play football and then makes some rediculous statement like “you have arms like treetrunks” and then tells me that when you marry a girl you marry her whole family…yeah.

Most recently was my buddy’s kid:

“You gettin’ biiiiig!”

Funny part is I’m 20# lighter than this time last year. Go figure.

These two extremely hot Brazilian bikini clad babes came up to me out of nowhere and started commenting on my powerful looking muscles and then stroking them and advising me to enter the Mr. Olympia contest and offering to be my oil girls.

I was quite enjoying this except I heard a faint buzzing that grew louder and louder. I then realized it was my alarm going off and I was late for work. Wait, does that count for compliments?

D

“HOLY SHIT, what happenned to your gut?”

I saw a girl at the girl a couple weeks ago who i went to high-school with. I was extremely weak and skrawny in high school. We were fairly buddy buddy in the classes we had together and I expected her to come up and say hi but she never did. So after I finished my workout and she was still there I went up and said hi. She replied with Omg hi Josh! I thought it was you but I couldn’t tell because you’re so huge now! Wow you have gotten so much bigger, all that good stuff. :slight_smile: That felt good! She said I didn’t even look like the same person.

OMG that’s fuckin funny because it reminds me of a story from last year. I was hookin up with this girl (finally) that I had a crush on all through high school (I’m 21 now) and as I was down there handlin business and bangin her she let out a “Ohhh yeah baby, use those muscles.” Its now a running joke amongst my friends, one of my buddies will be like Oh yeah use your muscles every time we see a hot chick. haha

thats pretty hilarious… did u laugh when she said it? i dont think there is any way i wouldn’t have

  • my friend after taking me off to the side… seriously though are you using something
  • i liked you better when were thin
  • why would you want to get that big
  • i think you have an eating disorder
  • you dont look like the same person

lmao@ i think you have an eating disorder & ooohh use your muscles

this shit is classic

Last summer I went back to visit my home town with my family. I was a decent athlete in HS but I was overweight too, and I’ve gradually slimmed down and gotten more muscular over the years. I’ve had some comments when I’ve gone home in the past, but this particular time an old friend of my mom’s just grabbed me, looked me up and down and said to my mom, “Oooh, honey, she just keeps getting better and better!”

Also, at my brother’s wedding a few months ago an old business partner of my dad’s told him I was one of the most beautiful women he’d ever seen. Now, that is DEFINITELY something no one would have said five years ago. I still blush when I think about it, and it’s embarrassing to post, but it’s so nice to get compliments.

Well, all my old female friends from high school think I’m super hot since I lost all my “football weight”.

Last night I had my shorts pulled up a bit icing a spot on my knee and my mom goes “Your legs are getting huge…its gonna be hard for you to find pants to fit…”

She’s was like “thats not good”, I was like “right on mom”.

Lol thats an awesome story.

Oh yeh, and my girlfriends dad saw me at the gym the other day (I had just finished biceps and was looking nice and pumped) and he told my lady I “looked like I was juicin’.”

Course he’s kinda retarded when it comes to that stuff, but it felt good nonetheless.

Chav girls in India? Since when? :stuck_out_tongue:

I’ve been told I look like I lift.

Yeh, I’m trying to figure out if I missed a thread explaining the cyber relocation and renaming.
