I have always believed that when a man compliments a woman, it is either he is up to something, or he is after something. Women, on the other hand, tend to be more critical of the same gender that when I receive a compliment from another woman, I am truly thankful and appreciative.
As I was leaving the dental clinic this morning, my son’s dentist asked me how we (my son and I) were related. I said, “I’m his mom.”
Dentist smiled and said, “Wow, you look so young!”
Good thing the dentist was a female. Compliment accepted!
That really made my day.
