One of the best was that someone told me that they felt my style of communicating and argumentation is like Sam Harris’ style.

And this person meant it as a compliment.

In a different note.... all my 3 children do something with music, sing, play and dance. None thank their mother. In my family I am the "legendary artistic uncle".


People often tell me I'm intelligent, so I'll go with that.


I've had a few. But the one's I mostly remember. My son told me once that the best thing he got from me was, that he could do what ever he set his mind to do. the other was from my daughter that without me she would not be the person that she is today. Both of my kids are very caring kind thoughtful people, and are doing very well for themselves, and try to help others around them. And the truth is I have received more from them, then what I have gave them.

When my kids tell me how proud they are of me for what I've made of my life post divorce. How I have stayed strong and not compromised. Also, when someone on here tells me how I've helped them, that just makes me teary. I like to build people and encourage them. We all need someone in our corner giving us encouragement.

You are so right.


I work in a nutrition dept at a hospital. I had someone this past week, find me thru mutual friends (small town) and thank me for the kind words I had offered two years earlier. It was humbling. To take the time to thank me, for something I felt was so simple to give, after so long really touched my heart. Her mom was hospitalized, while I don't remember the interaction, as it was regular for me, I guess I went out of my way to offer her comforting words, which stayed with her. Best compliment I have received by far, being thanked for my empathy and compassion was huge to me.

"I'm proud of you."

A person once told me that I was kind and genuine, and he was honored to know me. I was shocked, and touched. It was very sweet.

Who will know that as very young I scared people and later it turn out to be best compliment a man wishes can receive out of the bag because there is no substitute, really. Ironic, ironic.


I can't say... Because it will sound like bragging.

But compliments, if sincere, are food for the soul. So I often offer sincere compliments to my friends and family.

I have a few compliments for you, but I understand your opinion, so I will keep them to myself.
Needless to say, I genuinely think highly of you.


That is very nice of you.

Now I'm blushing. (Hugs.)

@Ellatynemouth I like your strength.
(Turn crimson!)


Ha ha!


I'm glad you don't attend school much...My primary Teacher!

Ha ha!



My grand daughter has said for years that I am the only man who has never disappointed her.

That's amazing


My partner recently told me that I'm very level headed and in control of my reactions. More so than anyone he's met previously.

(This said during a pregnancy to make it even more complimentary.)


I have had many i too was told of my childrens manners when small and i see my daughter now being kind and respectful to my brother who is sick and very demanding

my eyes and other parts and my laugh ... once a woan that had been a customer at dennys where i worked before it got a better job at shoneys said when i left the life went out of the store she no longer ate there cause it was so gloomy and no fun without me and at shoneys i had 2 daughters working there too and guests have said that having my family there was always so great


A favorite co worker left me a note yesterday. It was her last day sadly. She wrote
"Sometimes life situations change, people change. change may be unavoidable, the one constant in life.The thing that will always remain the same is my feelings for you. Ste-vile!I will always Hate you! You can be reassured that I will always want to wreck your bike. Talk smack to you and fill you life with nervous wreckyness. I hope you are continually stuck in traffic and need to Pee!"
i was really touched
