Men are supposed to be stone walls and emotionless. According to society, anyway, we all know that that just isn't true. Men can be very emotional, and have feelings just like everybody else.

So it's no surprise that when somebody says something nice to them, they're affected, just like everybody else.


u/ratsono asked:

Men of reddit, what was the last compliment you received that you still think about?

Here were some of those answers.

The Shaved Head Act

Giphy

Started balding six years ago and shaved my head one night on a whim. The next day, the first 3 women I interacted with complimented it (was single at the time), and I've been shaving my head ever since.

A Path Back To Health

When I was a few months out of cancer treatment, I ran into a guy I knew (who knew that I had had cancer--we worked together on a play while I was in treatment), and he asked, "Have you gained weight? You look good!"

Something about how specific that compliment was has always stuck with me since then. There aren't a lot of situations where that question would be welcome, y'know? But I had gained weight, dammit, thank you for noticing!

Wife Compliments

My wife gives me little compliments every now and then that make my day. It's typical wife comments like "You rock" or "those shorts make your butt look good" and they make my day.

Compliment The Men!

I was talking to my husband and mentioned that I'd read/participated in a thread recently about how guys don't get many compliments. I opened my mouth to continue talking and he burst out with, "YEA. We NEVER get complimented! I got complimented on my eyebrows once and I still think about that.." I said, "I compliment you all the time." He said, "That's different." lol

I'm Young For My Age

An attractive girl of about 24 who works at the local coffee house was chatting with me. I mentioned I have a daughter about her age. She asked how old I am. I said 49. She said I look great for my age.

I was so flattered. Men my age rarely get a second glance, and even less often get compliments.

Long Day Swept Away

Yesterday was a pretty long (12 hour shift) day and I was tired, but my day brightened up when these girls were trying to flirt with me. Oh, and like hours before that happened, a coworker told me that another coworker thought I was cute. I'm still thinking about it since it's very recent.

The Beer Pong Champion Of The Universe

I still remember almost 7 years ago I went to my first house party with my best friend at out other friends house with a bunch of people that I didn't know and my friend wandered off pretty early on. I make my way over to the beer-pong tables (middle class white people party), make friends with one of the guys and start playing for maybe the 2nd or 3rd time ever and I ran that table all night. I was playing for like 3 to 4 hours and I had so many random people coming up to me before they leave telling me how good I was. Went back to being an introvert not too long after.

The Little Beauty

At a Catholic funeral mass yesterday morning when it was over the lady in front of me said that I sing really well and that hearing me made the situation just a little bit better for her.

That compliment will stick with me for a while.

Rock In The Storm

"You're a good kid". Said by one of my classmates last school year. I like being considered the "Good Kid", Especially In a school where all the kids act like complete animals. Makes me think that maybe they all have a little normality in them.

Driven

Giphy

When I was in high school a few years ago this one girl in my friend group said that I was most likely to be the most successful out of the rest of the group, and everyone agreed. It's honestly given me motivation just to get through day to day life. I still think about it pretty often.

I tend to avoid public bathrooms if I can help it. They are terrible places. Few are clean and I admit I am a bit of a clean freak. My beautiful bottom will not grace a dirty toilet seat, no thank you. I have standards.

I'm being only sort of serious. I've been in a pinch before. But have you ever seen a gas station bathroom that was utterly destroyed by the patron (or patrons) before you? It's a horrible sight. 0/10: Do not recommend.

Naturally, some crazy things happen in your local public restroom. We heard some stories after Redditor RuffNBoy asked the online community,

"What is the wackiest thing you've seen in a public restroom?"

People Break Down Which Behaviors Scream "I'm Not That Smart'

One should never be fooled by a first impression.

Certain people might behave in a way that is less than indicative of what they are actually like, and might prove to be far more impressive, or much less friendly, once you get to know them a little better.

However, sometimes people will behave in a certain way which leaves one unable to avoid making assumptions about people.

Namely, their intelligence.

Redditor sparklingshanaya was curious to hear what behavioral traits the Reddit community took as a sign of possessing a considerable lack of intelligence, leading them to ask:

"What are some behaviors that scream unintelligence?"

One of my favorite horror films ever is Black Christmas (1974). It's the perfect slasher film. It's scary. It's uncompromising. It's sordid. It's eerie. It leaves you with a horrible feeling in the pit of your stomach. It features some great acting, too! There are some powerhouse talents in it, including Olivia Hussey, Keir Dullea, Margot Kidder, and Andrea Martin.

But did you know that the film has been remade? It's been remade twice, as a matter of fact. The first remake, which was released in 2006, was so ridiculous. Not even Martin, who showed up in a glorified cameo in the role of a sorority house mother, could save it.

It was remade again in 2019 — this one bore few similarities to the films that came before it. One wondered why this one even had the same name, but there you have it.

Suffice it to say that the original Black Christmas is untouchable. But it is not the only film out there that should never have been remade. Far from it.

People shared their thoughts with us after Redditor CrescendoX asked the online community,

"What movie is so perfect that if it would remade, it would be a crime against humanity?"
