How do you accept/ respond to compliments?
Just read [this here](https://www.refinery29.com/women-compliment-accept?bucketed=true) about how women typically rebuff compliments from the OP’s informal (could be biased) social experiment. Personal anecdote: Having breakfast with my girl friend, me: your sweater is so cute, friend: it’s really old, later the day, same friend: I like your new hair, me: oh it looks too messy. In retrospect, I lean toward down-play because I’m shy about getting the attention AND talking about it, the intention of downplay is to deflect/ level the attention, not to fish for more. Curious to know about your experience of getting & giving compliments in the context of style:
* Do you/ your female friends rebuff? Is acceptance awkward or expected? Does it differ depending on the gender of the complimenter? Why do you think you respond the way you do? Does it differ with age? What do you think is a good way to respond?
