Compliments you don't like?

I noticed the media portrays women like to be called "hot" or "sexy"

I however don't like (hate) when someone calls me those, I prefer "pretty" Or my name

Anyone else have compliments you don't like to get?

I don't like to be called sexy...
I prefer cute or pretty.
I never get pretty anymore :< just cute... =3=

I don't know WHY but I don't like being called smart.
Okay... I get it... I'm not dumb if I was wouldn't I feel a lot more flattered being called that?
Like it's setting more of an expectation than a nice gesture.
I dunno.

The only one allowed to call me sexy is Boyfriend.

For real though, I always kind of hated people telling me I had and "old soul". Still not clear on what the hell that's supposed to entail.

anything with "for (a) _________" attatched.

ex. "You have really good Japanese for a foreigner."
"You cosplay really well for someone who buys their costumes"
"You look really young for 30."

Why give a compliment only to cancel it out with something you seem to percieve an insult? O-o;;

That reminds me of when people start with "I am not racist but.." or "Not to be offensive..'

It's not technically a compliment, but I REALLY hate being called 'baby'.... by anybody. Saying "hey baby" will not flatter me, it will make me want to punch you.

"You're pretty good at this game... for a girl." /rage! I've heard that more times than I care for, and it really pisses me off. Just because I kick your ass doesn't mean you have to try and put me down.

Me and my Ex used to have some real intense Smash Bros Brawl matches. She is also hands down one of the best people I've played RE5 with. (God I hate when the computer controls my partner...)

The female gamer population is straight up amazing now. I can't even begin to tell you how many ladies I know that keep up in the dps, and heals when I played WoW. Haven't met many female tanks but I'm sure they are out there. Then again I haven't hit up an MMO in awhile...

Oh and "you're pretty good looking for a nerd", BAH I SAY.
