Image by Pexels from Pixabay

Cheesy compliments can feel fake or forced, but they might be the most honest a person can get. Giving someone a compliment, especially a cheesy one, means letting your guard down to tell other person know what you really think about them. Making it "cheesy" or dorky makes it a easier to slide under the defenses and save face in case the person receiving the compliment doesn't react positively. If you're receiving the compliment your initial reaction might be to recoil in an awkward daze, but don't. There can be some real earnest care coming from those awkward words.


Reddit user, u/f3jaideep, wanted to hear about:

What is the cheesiest compliment you ever got?

Excitement Turned To Sadness

"You are a handsome man and if I was younger i would try my luck."

Some lady that passed me while I was sitting at the bar in an irish pub by myself. Came out of nowhere I was confused for a second but was quick enough to say thanks. Don't get me wrong it still felt good hearing a compliment like that out of nowhere but in that moment it also really saddened me it wasn't someone [remotely] close my age and I quickly left afterwards so I don't sad drink lol.

Solid As A Rock

Some rando when I was about 15:

"You must have been born in a gravel pit 'cuz you rock my world."

SugaredZebra

Thank...You?

"If I was a woman, I'd want a body like yours".

Weird and cheesy, all in one.

There's A Wide Array Of Possible Reasons For This

I was the "good one of the litter".

Like thanks, but did you just call me a dog?

DukeBeekeepersKid

Could also be calling you a cat, a pig, or a rodent take your pick.

The cheesiest compliment was during dessert when a dinner guest said:

"Your homemade cheesecake is so rich, I feel it turning to pound cake with each bite."

Back2Bach

No, Really, Thank...You?

Well not cheesy but idk what it's consider but, "you better tie up your shoes so you don't fall on that pretty face of yours"

Esmton

Sounds like a subtle threat.

Does This Qualify As A Compliment?

You're the prettiest girl in a scooter (mobility issues) I've ever seen!"

No lie, it's happened TWICE. Different guys, different times.

People Still Pass Notes?

I had a random girl pass me a note in the school library asking to be my girlfriend. Looking back, she was kind of cute but I was too embarrassed to follow up on it. I just got up and left. I could have had a lot of fun if I wasn't so shy when I was a teenager.

Riding The Smoky High

Just a few days ago I was at a college event where we had a bonfire, I was sitting around talking with a couple people I had never met before. The smoke kept coming straight for me, despite my moving out of its way. The girl across from me commented, "Well you know the smoke always goes after the prettiest person." Played it off and laughed with everyone, but I've legit been riding that high for some time now.

Gotta Get It From Anywhere, I Guess

A new teacher pointed at our class picture and said, "Whos that, she's really pretty". I was like "Hmm.. Thanks, I guess.'

Edit: [I'm] a Dude and look nothing like a girl at all.

Everyone has their travel bucket list.

The list of places they absolutely must visit before they die.

There are those, however, who also have a rather different list of destinations.

The places that have no intention to visit.

Be it for safety concerns, language barriers, or simply that there's nothing at these places that calls to them, there are places some wouldn’t dream of spending the time and money to visit.

Redditor TrooperJohn was curious to hear which places were at the very bottom of the list of travel destinations for his fellow Redditors, leading them to ask:
