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?

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.

We've all found ourselves annoyed by the ticks or habits of others.

Some of these are fairly common, such as chewing with your mouth open, cracking your knuckles, or whether or not they pronounce the "T" in often.

Some habits are a bit more unusual, though.

Only the people guilty of possessing these habits might not realize that they're unusual until they are told by someone else that practically no one, or literally no one, else does them.

It's an eye-opening, sometimes humiliating discovery.

My entire childhood was comprised of watching Hollywood movies about high school.

From High School Musical, I learned that theater is uncool and no jock would be caught dead in a musical. The Breakfast Club made me think Saturday detention wasn't so bad. I learned that teachers can be manipulated from Clueless, and Mean Girls showed me how divided high school kids are based on their cliques.

When I actually started high school, none of those lessons helped me. I knew several jocks who were talented musicians and starred in every musical. I never had Saturday detention, but I heard enough horror stories to know it was awful. Teachers are not fools who bend to a student's will, and cliques are almost a myth. Yes, the cheerleaders hang out with other cheerleaders, but they don't dump food all over the honors kids.

Very few high school movies reflect the actual high school experience. Redditors know this all to well and were ready to share their stories.

People Describe The Dumbest Things They've Ever Seen Someone Spend Money On

I love money.

If I had an endless supply, I might throw it away with abandon.

But I am not blessed with that level of abundance.

Some people really take spending to an extreme.

To a point where maybe others should be in charge of their purse and wallet.

What is wrong with people?

Have we lost all sense of decorum?

I get that people need to speak their minds, but there are some moments where silence is the better option.

When you're naked and intimate with someone, it's best to not be mean.

I would've thought that would be a given.

Unless they're mean or creepy than do what you must.

But when you're alone in bed with a partner, partners, whatever, can't we put our best foot forward?
