Compliments can make a whole person's day, sometimes their life. The right words in the right moment at the right time can shift the emotional balance of a person. Remember, it doesn't cost anything to be nice, as these men will attest.


Reddit user, u/entremediopod, wanted to hear about the coolest compliment when they asked:

Men of Reddit: what compliment do you most like hearing?

Achievement: UNLOCKED

I usually prefer when they compliment something I've achieved myself: "I can see you have been working out", "Nice clothes, you are really stylish"... etc, than stuff I have no control of, like my hair, the colour of my eyes etc.

A Regular Sam Elliott Over Here

Giphy

Over a decade ago I was playing COD4 with some buddies in team death match.

There was a guy chatting with us and he was trying to tell our usernames apart by our voices and he asks "Who's the one with the deep voice" and all my friends call out my username.

I know it's not a compliment and it's f-cking weird but sh-t if that didn't make my day and it has stuck with me all these years.

Pushing Others To Do Better

The last compliment I received was circa 2017 when an older woman told me that my getting in shape was a big inspiration for her.

I guess I'll go with that.

Choco-Brown

A girl told me once that I have beautiful eyes.

I have the most generic brown eyes possible.

It left a deep mark on my soul.

The Ultimate Compliment

"You respect women better than anyone"

Milezinator

That's the best. A girl who I worked with years ago gave me the ultimate. "I love how you love women." It made me feel like I was doing something right.

"Thanks - that was really useful."

Nothing makes me feel better than being noticed for being skilled and helpful.

A Father To Remember

You're a good father.

If that's the compliment you really really want, you're gonna work for it. And if you're working for that compliment, you're probably a great father.

Why are people crazy with words?

It's like no one has been taught to think before they speak.

There are fine lines between some thoughts and then there is just straight-up nonsense.

Like... do you not realize you're in public?

And what you're saying is a crime?

Redditor Mysterychic88 wanted hear about the what some people have said to others that left shivers down their spine. They asked:

"What's the eeriest thing a complete stranger has ever said to you?"

People Who've Witnessed An Act Of Witchcraft Share Their Experiences

Do you believe in magic?

I definitely do! My best friend reads tarot cards, and his predictions for me have always been accurate. I have to believe in magic! And I'm not the only one.

In the 1600s, people were notorious for believing in witchcraft. That's what led to the famous Salem Witch Trials. We don't torture or burn people at the stake anymore -- thankfully -- but that doesn't mean the belief in witchcraft has faded.

People make money by boasting the power of Sight. Magical talismans are sold for protection. Ouiji boards are constantly used to try and contact the dead.

Then there are people who have witnessed actual witchcraft themselves. If seeing is believing, those people are definitely believers.

Redditor hows_my_driving1, wanting to know more about real witchcraft, asked:

"people of reddit who have practiced or witnessed acts of witchcraft, voodoo or the occult. What was your experience?"

People Break Down Which High School Stereotypes They Fit Into

We all spend our formative years trying to figure out who we are. Who we think we are actually determines the subjects we take, the things we become fans of, and the friends we make.

This is especially true in high school. Whether it's because of who we already are, or because of labels others gave us, we all fit into different cliques and groups.

Being studious, I fit in well with the honors crowd. My tendency to start new clubs, as well as become a part of already existing ones, also earned me the unofficial title of "all-around joiner."

Curious about these stereotypes, Redditor MountEverest14 asked:

"What high school stereotype did you fit into?"
