Now that I think about it, I used to HATE being called cute. My whole life I've constantly been called cute, and after a while I felt like nobody was taking me seriously because of it. Especially when I'd work really hard on a project and I'd show someone, and they'd be like, "Oh, that's cute." And it was annoying how nobody ever called me pretty :P

Nowadays I embrace the cuteness ^_^

I hate being told that I dont have to worry much about my appearance because I'm "slender and have a good figure" I guess they don't have the horrible acne I get and acne scars

I hate it, when it's the first thing they say to me.

Heaven does not forbid it. I get told I am short all the time. I think the best is when I take off my monster platforms/heels for cosplay and am standing around giving my feet a rest... ohhh man. It's all anyone can say to me. WOW. YOU'RE SHORT. I just say "What? I can't hear you from waaaaaay down here."

Gets kind of old, but it doesn't bother me. I guess that means I pose well if people think I look tall in pictures.

(I'm 5'1".)

I agree completely that you must pose well, because I totally thought you were taller than 5'1" xD

I didn't expect that either! No wonder people flip when they see your real height. I thought for sure 5"7"+

Also, people are always surprised that I am 6'1".
"Wow. You're really tall for an Asian!"

Sometimes I hate being told I look young for my age. One time at the movies I forgot my ID and couldn't get into an R rated movie. I can't believe at 24 someone would think I'm under 17.

I actually enjoy it when people think I'm younger than I am, lololol. Because I like cosplaying lolis and shotas. (I'm 14 but most people think 12...) Same for being called cute~

Agree with "..for a ____" being extremely annoying :| I get "You're pretty good at video games for a girl" a lot and have been told "Your cosplays are good for being so young!". ARGHGHGH. It doesn't even mean anything when you say it like that!!

I also don't enjoy comments about my age. I tell people my age, and they acted just too overly surprised =/ They are like "seriously?? You look like you just hit your teens!!" (Im 21)
The comments make me feel like a kid =<

I also dont like the "hey there cutey with the booty," or "Hotty with the body." Unless yur my gf, knock it off D= It makes me rather uncomfortable.

OH GOD I KNOW! I'm turning 25 in a couple months, and people are ALWAYS like, "Wow, I NEVER would have thought you were in your mid-twenties!! I thought you were maybe 17, 18 at most!!"
I always laugh and shrug it off, but it makes me feel like I'm two inches tall.

I've had a few girls compliment my chest, then ask where I got my boobs done >_<.

The first time this happened I tried to be cute about it and said:
"They were a gift from my mother."

The girl responded with:
"Cool! Could you tell me the name of your plastic surgeon?"

*facepalm*

I know I'm not the only naturally endowed woman who gets this.....if you've gotten a "compliment" like this before, how did you respond?

Only problem I've had with age is the huge difference facial hair makes.

Seriously, it's apparently the difference between teenager and "in his 30's"
