    Not at all! We love compliments! But context is everything.

    It's creepy if you're muttering them in the street to random 'attractive' women.

    Being respectful and not too loud is a poor context?
    You are scratching around for reasons to denigrate a man complimenting a lady. Anyway, back to the topic, I am looking forward to Nigella's show if for no other reason than to annoy the feminists.

    Lexus, your mission today is to go around complimenting unattractive, old ladies.
    Report back. :)

    Age is unimportant. I am 69 going on 50:). If a nice lady catches my eye and if I am in the mood, I might just do as you suggest. Reporting back would be indiscreet ;)

    I don't recall anyone thinking there is anything untoward about friendly interaction such as smiling and passing a comment about the weather. It's normal day to day human interaction as previously stated - for both sexes.

    And there's a whole lot of difference between normal interaction and offering random unsolicited compliments to women you don't know, let alone slobbering in public about come hither eyes and mermaids of destruction.

    I note that no one has said that they'd be fine with their wives or daughters being the subject of such attention.

    A couple of years ago I was out walking in the Staffs Moorlands hills, high up and quite isolated, a very nice lady was also walking on her own but going in the opposite direction to me. The path was narrow and we passed each other in close proximity. We both smiled at each other and exchanged comments on the weather, the lady was attractive and of a similar age to me and I was going to pay her a compliment but being where we were I decided not to. I have regretted that decision. Next time I might:) depending on context!:rolleyes:

    That woman on the lonely Staffordshire moors had a ruddy lucky escape then!

    "I was going to pay her a compliment"!!

    Yikes!

    Some men think: She looks nice. I will tell her.
    Some women think: I know exactly what HE'S after!

    They (some women) then eye those men with a certain disdain. Possibly repulsion.

    Random strangers commenting on the weather is OK. That's not exclusive to me. But my appearance IS. Unless I ask you. I am not asking for comments on my accent when I speak. I am not asking for comments on my gait when I walk. I am definitely not asking for comments on my appearance when I throw on some clothes in the morning.

    Be nice. Just say it's a nice day. Great. But kindly refrain from commenting on my appearance. It is nothing to do with you!

    Don't bother Dunty. Lexus is now being a wind up merchant - just as tedious as his lecherous persona and just as irritating.
    Time for the ignore button.....

    I would never harm anyone, why do you think I would?

    What a strange mind you have. Compliments are now lecherous!
