Should we start catcalling them?
I am amazed by how many men claim that compliments in their lives are a rare occurrence. I doubt you will find a lady who would say that someone did not compliment them or at least said something good about her within a week.
Apart from the unwanted attention from idlers on the road catcalling, ladies tend to be easily complemented. I Believe it’s because society attributes the looks and the way a woman presents themselves as more important than those of a man.
I came across a funny story on Tiktok by vanove72935 about how he felt when a lady from his gym complimented him.
I’ve never had a pretty girl call me a cute nickname in Person like a babe or baby or whatever the fuck else girls call their boyfriends i wouldn’t know. Anyways I was just leaving the gym and there was a pretty girl working the counter as I was leaving she said bye have a Goodnight Sweetheart! I’m not one of those dudes who like confuses good customer service, like a girl being nice at her job with her flirting with me, I understand she was just being nice I totally get it but that didn’t stop me from falling in love with her, it didn’t. I almost teared up a little bit thinking about it. I’m going to think about her for a long time now. I almost gave her my number gave her my last name, anything she wanted she got, my social security number, my wallet, do I think she’s calling other people the same probably, probably, but i love her so much..
No doubt the story above was told for humor and fun, nevertheless, there is an underlying message. As usual, I had to go through the comments and was surprised to find that there were two vibes in this comment section. One was men agreeing with this guy that compliments mean so much. The other was ladies saying that they avoid complimenting men because they have a tendency of overstepping their boundaries,like assuming when a girl compliments a man, she is into him.
Let’s take a look at the comments and the debates in them
@moderndaymidas:I was given a compliment by my female friend once. She said I smelled nice. That was in 2011. I still remember it.
@bbritt84:I used to go to a black female barbershop because i got called “hun” “tall drink of water” “baby” “darlin”. Bunch of sweet old ladies.
@holdafilledcupupsidedown:When I was in 10th grade there was a girl who said I seemed interesting and asked for my social media accounts. I immediately fell in love with her
@dannydubbbbb:I don’t compliment men very often because they assume I want to sleep with them and they can get aggressive with it. So I have to be comfy first.
reply:@super_cailou:I know sometimes it’s a double edge sword lol 😂
reply:@holdafilledcupupsidedown: Since hearing a compliment for men is super rare thing, we think that someone finally finds us attractive and we do not want to miss our shot.
reply:@holdafilledcupupsidedown:Because hearing a compliment makes us remember we actually exist too. Hence, we always want to be with the person who tells us nice things.
reply: @holdafilledcupupsidedown: Completely wrong perception… It is not that we want to sleep with you. We want to, spend time with you.
