Hang on, so what's all this about not getting told that you're pretty? Pretty, cute...same thing.

I mean, I’ve seen hot women post pictures of themselves on social media and ppl comment how beautiful she looks, they don’t say, “her makeup looks great.” Are they giving me a backhanded compliment?
Hi Highroller107, I think it kind of depends, and doesn't necessarily mean anything. I'll give an example. I tell my GF, sister, and my son that they look great, when they do look great. With coworkers, professionals outside of work, and even random strangers, I point out specific areas that look great, such as their hair, dress, shirt, or shoes. It's a boundary thing, I think.
