well, first, some funny back-handed compliments i've gotten recently:
"you're pretty funny for a girl."
"you look good for how much you eat."
well, no offense to my hometown area but one probably-not-intentional compliment i've really liked over the years is when people ask me where i'm from because they don't think i seem to be from around here.
i've gotten some really nice compliments from professors, but i feel like an asshole posting them. one of them for sure was probably just trying to **** anyway.
a handful of people have told me that i "get it." i always like that one.
