This will seem trivial but anyway do you get compliments from friends and family?
I saw a friend I had not seen in a really long time on Monday. She commented that she had lost 75 lbs and I told her she looked great. I commented on her nice short hair cut. She never once complimented me lol. Nada.
My Dad used to tell me I looked nice, but since hes been remarried to my StepMom he does not say a thing now.
My StepMom has not ever once complimented me and neither have my StepSiblings.
I look my best when I go to their house and when we all get together. They are always complimenting each other but never ever me!!! Makes me feel a little odd but I try and not let it bother me. I will keep doing what Im doing and fix my hair nicely and dress nicely and continue to compliment others. That is just me.
Not in a fake-- all the time way, but when they do look great etc.
BTW I am not whining just asking. Like I said I know it is trivial but wanted to see what you all had to say lol.

@FlowerBear @I guess I never gave it thought before you brought it up but my answer would be no or alt least not that I remember.I don’t need compliments but I do feel good giving them.I like to see people look pleased to be noticed.I don’t know why your family would leave you out when they compliment each other...seems to be a oversight.I think you could ask them.Maybe you always look so good that they think you don’t need a compliment.

I almost never get compliments from family, sometimes from friends, but so many from total strangers, which always makes me feel good.
My in-laws have never once complimented me on anything, personal, cooking, home, achievements, etc. They are definitely a dour bunch, and yes, I did quit complimenting them. That's the way they like it I guess.
I give compliments to my husband, family and friends, and strangers too, not effusive, and not all the time, but I do. A nice word makes your day a bit better.
