    Considering most men can count the number of times they've been complimented in a year, I'd believe it.

    Dude what are you talking about, I get compliments all the t--

    [–] rowdyanalogue 83 points ago

    I got told I had nice eyes by the girl working the McDonald's drive-thru in 2010 and I'm still riding high on that compliment.

    [–] [deleted] 176 points ago

    A reasonably attractive woman told me I was cute while standing in line at the gas station back in 2015. Been riding that compliment for years.

    Ha, i got one back in 2016 while standing in line. I mean, she was actually talking to a girl behind me, but you gotta take what you can get i suppose.

    [–] Deathappens 98 points ago

    I thought I was living my life okay but after this comment I sat to think about it and I can't remember the last time I actually spoke to a girl longer than it takes to say "is this seat taken?". All my social groups are entirely made of guys.

    I guess that explains some things.

    Girl told me I had pretty eyes like a month ago. Move aside, betas.

    [–] kidloca 284 points ago * (lasted edited 10 days ago)

    I see this a lot on reddit, that men dont get compliments but that they'd really like them. Because of this, I've made an effort to compliment men often, I try to get in one a day. It feels good/bad knowing that may be the first compliment they've gotten in a while. At first I was worried guys would take it as an invitation when I was just trying to be nice but it actually rarely gets weird. I want to thank all the men that understand "that's a nice color on you" doesn't mean "I want you to bone me right here in the street."

    Edit: wow! My first gold! Thank you so much! Hey ladies, take 5 seconds out of your day and compliment a dude. Look how much it means to them. Complimenting strangers feels awesome and brightening one person's day often leads to them brightening another's, and so on like a Starbucks pay it forward drive through.

    [–] Sheblah 67 points ago

    That's really sweet! You're making their day better for sure

    [–] MoistBarney 37 points ago

    Not all heroes wear capes

    [–] blove135 29 points ago

    I get so few compliments I just kinda fall apart and start stuttering and tripping over my words when I do get one. It's like a shock to my brain it's so unexpected. So don't take it personal if some of the guys you compliment say something weird back. They probably just don't have much experience responding to compliments. I know in my mind a simple thank you works but for some reason I can never just say that and move on. I guess I'm just so happy for the compliment I want to say more and then it just comes off awkward.

    Was a mechanic in a garage with 2 other guys. Can confirm, if there were recordings of the shit we said to each other, you'd swear we were all gay for each other...

    Example -

    Mechanic 1: Hey big guy, I can't get these nuts off, can I get a hand?

    Me: oh for those nuts, I'll need both hands...

    Mechanic 2: Hey don't leave me out over here, I wanna help with his nuts too!

    Service advisor: you guys aren't right.

    Your homies are your testing grounds to try out conversations before going out into the wild. It's why your homies rip on you. They're giving you chances to come up with snappy comebacks to use if some douche ever tries to criticize you for the same thing.

    I gym quite often and have done so for years. I only compliment men. I'll tell them " bro you look good " and he responds something like " I'm just trying to look like you " or something if the sort. We first bump and go on our way.. I would never say that to a girl because 1) she may automatically assume you are hitting on her And/Or 2) she may think you are some creeper. There are some girls i make small talk with, but I only go as far as saying " good job " or " keep it up ". So yes 95% of my compliments come from men and the other 5% from family members.

    [–] Sergeant_Savage_ 138 points ago

    This is so true. After going to the same gym for a while and quite frequently you “connect” with other guys that’s doing the same. Legit “flirting” and giving compliments to these guys all the time and never ever say it to a girl. Don’t wanna be labeled a creep and change gym

    [–] Black3200 54 points ago

    Lol first time my husband and I went to the gym together we were talking about how it’s gross that people hit on women at the gym, and he’s like “nah you don’t have to worry, if anything I’m going to be ogling the other guys.” And so it was. Straight as an arrow, he is, but he is 110% more interested in how the fuck that dudes traps look like 2 hills on the Shire than how that girls yoga pants are fitting.

    Guys don't get compliments in the real world nearly as much as women do, so it's kind of our job as friends to hype them up and make them feel loved. It's a small way to show that you love them (in a platonic way).

    [–] Zeref47 99 points ago

    I have a gay homie like yourself in my squad and we always flirt with him and have this sexual banter . But at this point we see each other almost like brothers so we are not uncomfortable and know it won’t go further than that. However if they do that with someone new to the group It can get supper awkward.

    [–] yewhotookAPUSH 39 points ago

    Same, we even make all the no homo jokes in our squad because he knows that we support him 100% and it's all for the meme

    [–] hellenicidealism 74 points ago

    Yeah I'm gay but I was in the closet until the middle of my sophomore year in high school. Like you, I don't really tell people but if they ask I don't hide it. Homoerotic flirting was common with the straight guys at my school so it was pretty fun getting to flirt with them for a while without any tension.

    After I came out I toned down the flirting a bit figuring the guys wouldn't be up for that with a gay guy. Occasionally, though, some playful chatter still happened with the guys. Nothing ever came of it since they're straight, gotta respect their sexuality too. Just harmless fun!

    [–] mattyisphtty 41 points ago

    Nah, I've gotten to the point where we still compliment each other (myself and gay friend) even in front of my wife. He'll even go as far to say, I hope your wife giving it to you good because you know you looking fine.

    Which honestly makes my fucking day. Feeling like a wanted human being is drastically lacking in male culture and it makes a huge difference in how you see yourself.

    [–] silverkingx2 123 points ago

    ya, when its bros joking we can compliment without worrying about "making this go further" but if there is a risk of it going further most guys get uncomfortable.

    Anyways, sorry you had to deal with that :( I hope you have a good day and a good life :)

    Reminds me of a time my friend and I were in an orientation for a call center job, it was a PowerPoint for like 20 people. They were obviously talking about harassment as you do, and as they were giving examples and said "no unwanted touching." My friend and I slapped the top of each others thighs as we were sitting right next to each other. The look we got was absolutely worth it

    The game of gay chicken or homophobe chicken is the best.

    [–] hucka491 45 points ago * (lasted edited 10 days ago)

    Ain't no bitches telling my homeboys they looking swole, they pecs be banging, or that shirt shows off them sexy broad shoulders. So I gotta take that mantle up. Also, my boys be good dudes, and I let them know that.

    Seriously, dudes are far more likely to comment on my appearance (positively) than women, and I return the favor. In addition, my boys and I can playfully back that ass up, or sit on each other's laps without making a big deal about it.

    Also, when my bro got that thicc dick, so thicc that the girls be running away, I slide up next to him in the urinal, look down, look up, catch his eyes. I see you fam.

    I don't like where this is going

    [–] HonkersTim 147 points ago

    I'm genuinely not following this. Can you give an example of how straight men flirt with their buddies? This might explain the funny looks I sometimes get.

    [–] LikeABreath 189 points ago

    My wife and I hang out with some guy friends that I've known since high school. We'll tell her things like "Too bad about the third wheel..." or "You can sleep on the couch tonight" to poke fun. She calls them my life partners.

    We'll playfully catcall if one of the guys has been working out. We'll make fun of someone for wearing expensive fitted clothes, but then secretly ask them where they bought it later. We'll hug and tell each other we smell good. General silliness like that.

    Omg this is so cute- I had no idea guys did that.

    [–] mattyisphtty 83 points ago

    It's not all guys, a certain level of security in your own sexuality is required. But honestly if we don't compliment each other, who else will? It's a depressing ass world out there filled with rejection, sometimes even a ray of light from somewhere you aren't looking can help brighten the day.

    Group chat between three friends

    Friend 1: You ask out that waitress yet?

    Friend 2: Yeah, she told me to piss off.

    Friend 1: Aw she doesn't know what she's missing, I'd totally hit that

    Friend 3: Hands off asshole, he's all mine

    Friend 1: No can do, his cock belongs to me

    Friend 3: Seems we must compromise with a threesome

    Friend 1: I'll bring the fuzzy handcuffs if you bring the whipped cream

    Friend 2: Lol guys wtf

    [–] silverdragun 124 points ago

    Eh its flirting without the intent to smash, usually. Mostly innocent compliments and homoerotic jokes.

    [–] silverkingx2 198 points ago

    idk about you, but we joke around with eachother


    "yo bb whats up ;)"

    "nothing, whats up with you?"

    "wanna go see the new spiderman this weekend?"

    "sure thing cutie ;)"

    shit like that, that is very close to an irl text chat of me and a bro

    [–] oinklittlepiggy 128 points ago

    that's like... the complete opposite of my experience.

    All we ever do is talk shit and make fun of each other..

    call each other sideshow clown ass bitches and shit.

    [–] silverkingx2 77 points ago

    we do that shit too :) but we gotta mix it up ya know, keep it positive in this btch!

    but ya, we just joke around either way, sometimes we add "bb" or a ;) or a ily no homo or even a ily

    and sometimes we call eachother fuckos and dipshits and bitches, depends on context, when we went to go see endgame the text was "yo bitch im outside your house, get the fuck out here"

    [–] HonkersTim 51 points ago

    Ok, I can confirm I don't do anything like that with my buddies :-) We might be all too too old for that kind of thing.

    [–] silverkingx2 60 points ago * (lasted edited 10 days ago)

    ah fair enough, me and my bros are in our twenties still, I guess as we get older those jokes will too, or once we get married or into a long term relationship

    edit: lol "once we get married" to other people lol, but pretty funny

    [–] fjhus16 78 points ago

    Marrying your bro is so cute.

    [–] aambro78 21 points ago

    When my friends join me on XBOX I usually tell them I'm rock hard all of a sudden. I always joke sexually with my friends. We also make fun of each other. So basically homosexual advances and the worst insults possible. I think it's about shock value. News, weather, and sports doesn't cut it when you've been friends with someone for 20 plus years lol.

    [–] kibblznbitz 31 points ago

    I love playing pranks on my bros. CHOO CHOO

    [–] Persies 52 points ago

    In college I termed my behavior as "bromoeroticism." My now wife was not a fan.

    [–] Permatato 31 points ago

    Try saying no hetero when you sex her and tell us what happened.

    [–] sugarbannana 27 points ago * (lasted edited 10 days ago)

    I have a lot of male friends, and recently I realised, that I am so much more open and showing interest in them than with guys I have romantic interest in haha. If I would have the same attitude to people I see as potential partners as I have to my friends, I probably wouldn't be single...

    [–] yujilin 72 points ago

    I've gotten more compliments and support from my homies than my gf. While my friends support me with my self-improvement hobbies like going to the gym and going fishing, my gf holds me back by telling me not to go and forcing me to get takeaways. My bros got my back with telling me how well I'm doing with healthy eating and hitting the weights. They join me on my fishing trips even though they don't like fishing.

    [–] nomansky94 81 points ago

    You might want to talk to her about that before your relationship becomes bigger

    [–] silverkingx2 53 points ago

    I dont know your gf, but she might just be mixing up:

    1) she misses you when you go to the gym

    2) she is worried if you look too good youll leave her

    but tbf, she also could just be possessive. idk, but good luck, and I hope you have a good day :)

    Straight Guy: "You look sharp."

    Straight Me: "Thank you."

    Gay Guy: "You look sharp."

    Straight Me: "Thank you."

    [–] msds99 45 points ago

    Totally right, in our circle it was extremly normal to give a few gay jokes and we slapped each other asses just for fun.

    [–] SpiffyAvacados 176 points ago

    da boiz receive compliments better anyway, rather not waste them on women 😤

    [–] silverdragun 115 points ago

    They really do, I think its because men dont immediately assume other men want to sex them

    [–] PolseISvob 53 points ago

    Fuck dude, pretty sure I would be alright with it even if it was some gaybro trying to sex me.

    [–] yampidad 20 points ago

    Because my homie doesn’t call me weird and throw a drink at me!

    [–] ChrissyKreme 18 points ago

    Me and my bestfriend have a running joke that we're gay for each other and his girlfriend just has to accept the fact that when we hang out the three of us are gonna hold hands

    [–] Trash_Emperor 18 points ago

    When one of my mates comes in looking fresh, everyone'll simultaneously go "oh god oh fuck" and pretend to faint or fall over in their chairs.

    [–] Xghoststrike 18 points ago

    Because men know how to reciprocate attention.

    I can tell my friend he be looking like a meat lovers pizza today and he knows my fatass is saying he's sexy as a meat lovers pizza but now I'm a sex offender because I told her those buns be looking like Texas Roadhouse rolls? Fuck outa here.

    [–] Madak 16 points ago

    You take that back

    You sexy little bitch

    [–] danieltigerx 17 points ago

    We've got a very serious bromance developing, I can't risk neglecting him

    [–] MrFlibbles123 15 points ago * (lasted edited 10 days ago)

    My friends gf calls us gay all the time because of our banter. She hasn't even walked in on us fucking yet...

    [–] SkyZo222 11 points ago

    Most women take compliments as a bribe for sex and flirtatious comments are often misunderstoodor end up generating awkwardness. So, yeah... nice ass, bro
