do you ever get a little offended

when like on myspace or facebook on a pic comment people say 'oh you look so pretty!'

i mean i really dont get offended, but i tease them like 'oh so i'm not so pretty all the time?' lol

i just think its a funny choice of words ;] so i make it a point to say 'you are so pretty!' :]

  • I can kind of relate to what you're saying. Every year on picture day at the school I work at we have to take our picture ID's and I usually curl my hair. I can not tell you how many times students have looked at my ID and say "teacher, you look so pretty there". I always joke and tell them "So I don't look pretty today"? They get it right away and laugh with me. Face it we all look icky at one time or another. When we are ready to take a picture we fix ourselves up and STRIKE A POSE!

  • I seem to be missing your point. "pretty" is a not a compliment?

  • haha It bothers me, too. Is it just in this picture that I "look" pretty. Not that I AM pretty?

  • Maybe in that particular picture I look pretty? Them saying that doesn't necessarily mean they think other times I'm a she-beast, even though I could beat them up. I don't tend to get offended with compliments. I get offended when dudes hit on me.

  • That's a little nitpicky, no? Geez, just take the compliment and stop analyzing everything to death!
