10 Weirdest Compliments People Have Been Given

With some of them it´s difficult to say whteher it´s compliment or insult.

Compliments stand for expressions of admiration, praise, or likeness (but sometimes they are just weird).

You know the feeling when you are just walking down the street, during a regular day, and somebody comes to you to compliment you? Well, I don’t.


Once again, we went to the most discussion fulfilled place on the internet – Reddit! We found the post called “What’s the weirdest compliment you’ve ever been given?” posted by u/icylilith.

The post is only 10 hours old and has already gathered over 57 thousand upvotes and many, many great responses from the users. These people have been complimented in a really strange way…

The Weirdest Compliments

#1 That I’m like a piece of furniture, don’t do much but you notice when I’m not there.


While this compliment might seem from the firsthand just funny, Reddit user 42Discipel has a different opinion:

“This is one of my favorites (comments) so far in this thread. Like, just your presence is enough for the other person to feel content and comfortable. That’s a really good compliment, in my personal opinion.”

And we would like you to just take a second and think about this additional comment. It just shows that things might not always be the way you think from the jump.

#2 The piecer who pierced my ears back in august told me my ears were perfect and to call her if anyone said otherwise and she would fight them for me.


Somebody in the comment called the piercer an “ear slut”. 2020 is full of surprises I guess.

#3 Someone told me my eyes were upside down.

Not sure what that means or if it was even a compliment, they seemed friendly.”


I do not know what exactly this suppose to mean but it´s a funny thing to say to somebody.

#4 I work retail and was told this by a customer, “you’re so nice, you must have been bullied in highschool. “

Later the author of this post admitted the customer was right. It´s crazy that people who have been through the worst, can still keep their good side and be nice to others…

#5 Random stranger while I was on a run: “NICE NECK”.

I’m not saying I believe in vampires, but I made sure my windows were all locked that night.


The vampire, disappointed at finding your windows locked, cursed and muttered to himself, “better luck necks time.”

#6 “You are so tan, how did you get so tan?”

I’m Indian.


Ops…this compliment makes me cringe a little. Do you remember the episode where Ross got his fake tan?

#7 “You remind me of a swan.”


Comment section for this one is golden:

“Large, white and a psychopathic attitude?”

“50 Percent chance it’ll either attack you or try to fu*k you”

#8 “You’d look great in an off shoulder dress”

I’m a guy, but if I ever want to start wearing dresses, I know I’ll choose off-shoulder ones

No Title

No Description


As kurtvan mentioned “Way to give the guy the cold shoulder”

#9 A coworker once told me that I was “a cross between Han Solo and Dr. Bunson Honeydew from the Muppets.” This was in 1998 and I still can’t stop thinking about it – was that supposed to be a compliment? An insult?

The worst part is that he was pretty accurate, actually


To be honest I would love to see a selfie of this user…

#10 “You look like you’re good with your elbows”


What does it mean to be a good with elbow? Like, really what does it mean?
