Getting compliments always makes us feel good. Well, most of the time. Sometimes the compliments are so bizarre, that we genuinely don't know how to respond. It almost makes you question everything about yourself. Here are a few examples of some weird compliments, given to the people of Reddit.

u/kcdea asked: What is the strangest compliment you've ever received?



The next Marshall Applewhite.

"90% of women you meet won't like you. But the ones that do are gonna be obsessed with you and hang on your every word. You have the charisma of a cult leader."

Something like that. I still don't know what to think of that.

Not for sale.

I was told that I have nice legs by some random guy that didn't have legs at Wal-Mart once.

SkullStarfish

What did you say?

Bellamybells

They're not for sale.

GeorgeofJungleton

What does that even mean?

"You look like you could beat a door down," in response to asking how a pair of shorts looked.

What, like their back door?

That's so sad.

Not me, but I've read on another thread that a shy, unsocial guy was once told by his classmate (who was being repeatedly bullied in school):

I wish I could be invisible like you.

Not wrong.

"You rock two black eyes and a broken nose better than anyone I've ever seen. Your bruise matches your dress."

For context: a couple of years ago I broke my nose on the back of a stopped car while commuting on my bike. I spent three weeks walking around with—you guessed it—a broken nose and two shiners. Most people looked horrified at first sight (a couple of my teachers asked about my home life), but one girl noticed that I'd started matching my clothing to the color of my bruises out of boredom.

Now that's a weird one.

Were you a cesarean baby? Because you have the nicest shaped head.

That's uncomfortable.

That I smelt like doughnuts. This was from a very drunk man who was taken by my vanilla perfume, and then proceeded to bring all his friends over to sniff me...

Thanks?

My OB/GYN, in the middle of my Pap smear, said, "you have a wonderful pelvic floor."

I wasn't sure what to say, but my brain went on auto and said, "thank you". He just nodded and continued the exam.

So haunting.

At an airport an employee said, "You look like you should be somebody." After I said something like "Thanks...I think," he then clarified that he meant like an athlete or actor. I do think it was meant as a compliment, but since then I've been haunted by the feeling that I haven't lived up to my potential.

Mushroom Kingdom.

After cutting my hair really short :

My economy teacher : "I trust you. You are from the Mushroom Kingdom, I trust you."

This day I learned that my hair inflates like crazy sometimes.

Do you have something to confess to George? Text "Secrets" or "🤐" to +1 (310) 299-9390 to talk him about it.

We often find ourselves having to guess how to make things work and make things fit--in our lives, but also just in our possessions. Will these pants fit me? These shoes?

Will this screw fit my table? Will this charger fit my phone?

You know what they say, “the road to hell is paved with good intentions". Because the people who have our best interests in mind typically have good intentions when they give us advice, but there's a chance that that advice can go horribly wrong.

Every once in awhile, somebody comes along, enters your life, and catapults themselves to that awful, unique position at the top of your list of the worst people you have ever met.

Sometimes, the person's blindingly terrible behavior and overall essence is actually impressive. We ask ourselves, "how could a person like this actually exist on purpose?"
