"I think you're the most beautiful woman in the world", he says, as she wonders silently "then why do you ogle every girl you see?"
I love compliments, even if I feel uncomfortable with them at times. If I feel I'm overweight, or too short, or too little or too much of something else, I long for comments that help me feel more attractive. The same thing applies to other parts of me such as my personality.
Genuine compliments given freely by my SO reach a special place inside of me. If my partner uses flattery to get what they want however, it becomes difficult to know if what they say is genuine or not.
Maybe something to ask myself at such times is "what example am I giving my SO?" Do I truly appreciate and accept all that's special about myself, or do I "flatter myself" only at times when it helps me get something I want?
