3. Compliments are not currency.http://jezebel.com/you-cant-tell-the-attorney-general-she-has-an-epic-but-471311007
One reason why men are reluctant to let go of their “right” to fixate, vocally, on women’s looks to the exclusion of all else, is because historically compliments have been profitable for men. It’s an instant “in.” Because the expectation that’s modeled for women and drilled into us from childhood is that if someone is nice to you, you owe him something: He buys you dinner, you owe him sex. He compliments you, you owe him a smile. Overhauling that system drains men’s social bank accounts. But it doesn’t have to be that way! You can interact with us on a human-to-human level instead of a collector-to-curio level and I promise we will love you for it. Telling people they look nice is perfectly fine—it just can’t be the primary form of currency.
