When I get a compliment through text - even just something like "You ain't ever boring" - I end up staring at the screen for a good minute before I type a response, delete the response, type another response, delete the response again and just do that 100 times until it has come to the point where it's taken me too long to respond that whoever I was texting has already fallen asleep or it's already gotten a lil awkward coz it's on Google Chat or iMessage where whoever I am texting can see that I'm typing and may or may not be waiting for my response.
When I get a compliment in person, like "You are so pretty", I end up looking away, pretending I didn't hear the compliment yet replay it over and over in my head until I realize it was kinda rude that I ignored the compliment and play certain scenarios in my head where I was witty about it instead and just completely zone out on the rest of the conversation after that, making myself look even more rude.
Hay. Yup. I'm bad with compliments. Does anyone have any advice on how I can remedy this? Like, what do you say when someone compliments you? "Thank you"? Isn't that kinda condescending? "No, I'm not"? That will only make the person explain why you are and make it even more awkward, no?
Do I think too much?
