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

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.

People Break Down Which Things Were Common In The 1990s But Are Rare Today

Oh the 90's. What a decade.

Who knew we were in the time of revolution?!

So much happened, yet so much stayed the same.

And not decades later, so much has changed.

Who doesn't love to look back upon a decade and discuss the things that were a common part of life and are now basically obsolete?

You never know in real time.

People Divulge The First Thing They Think Of When They Hear The Word 'Texas'

Texas is HUGE!

Literally, it's massive. That might be why the tagline is about everything being big. Oh the metaphors of life.

Next to size is heat. Lord is it hot there.

Those are just a few of the regular Texas deets that often come to mind.

What else do others think of?

Insects play a vital role in Earth's ecosystem.

Without insects, some plants would die and some animals would starve creating a domino effect of global famine.

That being said, June Bugs can crawl back into the pits of Hell from whence they came.

I know I'm not alone in that opinion.

People Share The Things They Find Completely Overrated

For the life of me, I can't understand how anyone could still watch The Walking Dead. I just checked and the damn thing has had 11 seasons. 11 seasons!

Can you imagine?

People enjoy watching characters follow a set of train tracks for an entire season I guess. (For context, I made it to the beginning of the seventh season before I threw in the towel, and it was really testing my patience well before then.)

But there's so much more out there that's equally overrated. Television is the least of our problems.

People shared their thoughts with us after Redditor PieinHorse asked the online community,

"What is very overrated?"
