Ever given a genuine compliment to someone and been asked/(forced) to justify it ?
“Oh, I do like your hat :D”
“WHY do you like my hat ?”
What goes through my mind is – why would someone need a (logical) reason to accept a compliment ?
People who fish for “genuine” compliments … weak sense of self OR clever cunning, alpha-ape ?
Perhaps someone can give me a positive spin on this situation 😀
Or does it say only bad things about the someone who does it ?
Over to you …
