Everyone wants to receive compliments. It's not hard to comprehend. Who wouldn't want to be told nice things about themselves? The tricky part is accepting it, as in admitting to yourself that what the other person said has value and is truthful. For these women, they overcame that hurdle, internalizing these compliments to hold onto forever.


Reddit user, u/DivergentG, wanted to hear how your day was made when they asked:

Girls of reddit, what was the most heart melting compliment you heard from a boy?

Victory Over All

Different Levels Of Intelligence

Me, when he was graduating top 3 in our class: Congratulations, I wish I could be as smart as you.

Him: Yeah, but I'll never have the level of emotional intelligence you do.

He spoke like it was obvious, but it was the first time I realized that was something valuable.

Thinking About The Future Together

I'm not sure if this is a compliment but my SO and I have been together for quite some time now and he didn't go to college (sad story behind it) and then I found him one day looking up and listing down possible courses to get and I told him I was happy for him and that I would support him all the way but for some reason, I asked him why and he said that he wants to get better jobs and save up for our future.

I tried my best not to tear up

Being Recognized And Seen

"The work that you do everyday amazes me" and "I love the way you care so much about other people".

I have a really emotionally-demanding career and have worked really hard to get where I am. there is no better compliment to me than one that shows how much my partner SEES me, you know?

Something To Listen To Again And Again

From my boyfriend: You are so beautiful. Not just physically. Everything about you is beautiful. The way you create things, the things you like, all of it. I'm infatuated with you.

I replay that in my head over and over when I'm feeling inadequate.

Scoring No Matter Where You Go

One time when I was in a train station in Pompeii (we missed our train) and I had to sit down but there were only like 3 benches and 100 people so you do the math. So I sat on the ground in pain and sweat and this Italian guy walks past me and says something in Italian. I can't speak it so I just nodded and smiled, he then asked if I spoke Italian and I said no. He then said "well I just said you were beautiful". That still makes me happy everyday

Please Only Annoy Me

We have good banter.

When It's All Natural

My boyfriend said "I love you" for the first time the other night and we were chatting the night after and I told him that it really surprised me. He said "it just felt natural, everything with you feels really natural". He doesn't talk about feelings much but that made my turn to mush.

Saving The Planet

I was literally just picking up trash and he said "you're the type of person that's gonna change the world"

The Best...Around.

When I was in third grade my teacher had us all group up in boy-girl pairs for a project. The girls would sit at a table, and the boys would pick which girl they wanted to work with. One boy who I had a crush on immediately walked over my table and sat down. When I asked him why he chose to work with me he said, "Because you're the best girl out of all of them."

I still think about it today, it was such a sweet compliment.

"Big Brother is watching you..."

The famous words from George Orwell's dystopian novel 1984, which tells the story of a world governed by omnipresent surveillance.

Today, however, many people are under increased paranoia that their every step is being monitored by the government, or by the world's largest corporations.

Not helping their fears, is when people look back on information collected by their Google data, and see that virtually every step they've taken has been documented.

Even things some people might not remember doing themselves.

People Break Down The Best Facts To Teach Young Kids

Even if they sometimes appear less than excited to go to school, children are always eager to learn.

As they will encounter new experiences with each passing year, resulting in parents and other adults being bombarded by new questions regularly.

Most frequently, if not necessarily intentionally, as a delay tactic before going to bed.

Which is when it's important for the parent, grandparent, or babysitter who's in charge of bedtime to come up with one, exceptionally satisfying fact which will give them plenty to think about, or dream about, after the lights are turned off.

Who would have predicted the endless source of entertainment and fascination the Internet provides.

With countless websites where one can shop, watch movies, catch up on news, play games... and do just about anything.

Of course, some of the better known websites, such as Amazon, YouTube, Facebook and Google are likely visited by just about everyone every so often.

But practical and entertaining as the world's most visited websites are, that doesn't necessarily make them the most interesting.

Should one find themselves going down an internet rabbit hole, as we all do every so often, we might discover a unique, truly fascinating website which might cater to our personal hobbies or interests, or simply catches our attention for inexplicable reasons.

People Break Down The Best Ways To Make Friends As An Adult

As a kid, it’s easy to make friends. You don’t need to do much. Just share your pudding snack pack or make mud pies, and you have a new best friend.

As an adult, it can seem harder. You can’t really make mud pies anymore (in fact, that may be a way to drive off friends), and adults are a lot less open than kids, so it can be difficult to develop a rapport.

However, it’s not as hard as it seems to make friends, even as an adult. If you’re struggling, or even just looking for new ways to meet people, Reddit has got you covered!
