(thank you for directing this opinion at OP)
well it goes both ways.
Honestly if somebody gets offended at something i said and pitches a fit at it i dont have time to sit there and think about what kind of thought process theyre having. this is a stranger. a stranger is offended. so the fuck what. i move on, respect their opinion and continue my day.
Let me tell you a story. Once i ordered a pizza. I went to recover my pizza and the delivery guy gave me a creepy compliment I didnt like. I took my pizza and told him “Thats not how you compliment a person. All you have to say is ‘youre pretty’. what you said is offensive and i didnt like it.”
He didnt yell at me. He apologised for his comment, told me i was pretty and continued on with his day.
good news everyone.
the pizza guy came back. he asked me why saying what he said to me was bad because he didnt understand from the last time. i explained to him it was an extremely personal thing. something you would say to a partner. a husband or a wife. when said to someone you dont know very well, or someone who is not interested in a romantic relationship with you it comes off as creepy and invasive.
so he called me pretty again and i enjoyed my small pizza with bbq sauce and mushrooms.
So what was this creepy compliment?
