8 Compliments Guys Think Are Nice But Are Offensive AF

We’ve all been there: you’re talking to a dude, he seems pretty cool and nice, you’re starting to feel butterflies, and then all of a sudden he says something… bad. He says he “means well,” but it comes off as rude and offensive. You might feel too weird to call him out, or you do and then everything is awkward. It can really ruin a good conversation or date and bum you out. Honestly, some dudes just don’t realize when they are being offensive or mean. That doesn’t make it okay, though. It’s just further proof that boys don’t think before they speak, and rarely ever learn from their mistakes.

According to a recent Reddit thread,  there are a ton of “compliments” that men direct at woman, without realizing that they are pretty messed up. If you think you can relate, take a look at these common compliments guys give that are actually super offensive. Then, next time this happens to you, send them a link to this article.
