Do you expect compliments when dressing up? - Page 2

I get them most every time I'm out and about, and really, if you're a socially well-adjusted man who puts some effort into learning this stuff, that's to be expected.
ya id have to agree with that one, especially if people were asking me to dress up in my clothes for pictures.
People compliment me but more often than not people ask why im so dressed up. I dont care either way
Yeah, this makes me think of how people like to pose with cartoon characters at Disneyworld. Not really the effect you want.
My feeling is that if I do not regularly get (good) compliments, then I am doing something wrong and need to re-think my approach. The non-SF competition out there is so bad that it really should not be all that hard to dress better than 99% of men in the world.
Well, for me when I was younger I did not have the confidence to compliment a guy who in my opinion had made an 'effort' to look good and dress noticeably well. I used to over analyse the situation as in.. what if the thinks I'm gay and coming on to him, or.. what if he is embarrassed by the attention, now.. I don't give a hoot who they sleep with or even if they do double back flips when they think no one is watching.
Now that I am more mature, I always make a special effort to compliment a person that has made an effort to do something well, whether that be wearing a suit and tie and looking good in it, or something else. Hey maybe I drop dead tomorrow, then there would be one less person i could have done something good for. So, in my opinion, make the effort guys, it is always worth it to make even a small positive difference to another person's life.
I am very aware though, of the pleasure it gives the person being complimented. It usually starts with attention and focus as in, what does this stranger want from me, then it soon turns into a huge smile when they realise that they are actually being given something that adds to, or reinforces their impression of their self worth. They then usually / always thank you profusely for what you have said, and they go on their way with a slightly more perceivable spring in their step. I too am pleased at being able to have done something good for another person.
