    So guys hypothetical here.....

    If someone said to you - "You remind me so much of Don Draper"....how would you take it? Assume....for this exercise that you were not able to clarify this person's comment..... what would be your first reaction?



    How would you take it? Would you consider it a compliment or not?

    This thread is so random it made me laugh.

    OT: I guess most would be flattered?

    Handsome; but desperate, toxic, and venomous.

    (That's how I would describe the character. Is that a compliment? Not really. Depends how deeply you ponder the meanings of each of those words. I personally feel the character is an example of a profound failure. He is one full of sadness and desperation, yet lives among the trappings of success)

    I HIGHLY doubt the person who said that to you meant anything more than your looks or fashion sense.

    Funny, I dated a guy for a while who, looking back, reminds me of Don Draper. Not looks-wise, but in how he used being super successful at work to make up for all of his craziness. Also, charming and sexy as hell, which only made it worse. Both essentially selfish and narcissistic.

    Don Draper makes a great television character, but he would suck as a real person.

    Too funny. Still love Joan though.

    I agree with the above posts. Don Draper makes a great TV character and his confidence is pretty sexy...but dealing/living with a guy like that. No thanks.

    As an insult. The man is a selfish, rude, womanizer.

    I'd rather remind people of Dave Draper.

    Depends on how smart, or shallow-horny there were. It could go either way.

    Actually this was a hypothetical. However, I must admit that watching the show there are certain scenes, certain situations that involve Don Draper that make me absolutely cringe.......

    ..........because I can relate.

    I would be flattered, unless he was trying to say I have anger issues. Draper could use some therapy on that shit.
