Wow people in here seem to get offended by the slightest thing
I'd probably like most of those compliments mentioned.
I don't understand why we have to tiptoe around racial preferences either. Seriously, white, asian, black, all have distinct looks to them, and no, that's not to say they are all the same, but they are distinctly different from eachother in appearance, so it's strange that you guys would take offence that someone happens to prefer the looks of one race over another. For example, why isn't it offensive when someone voices a preference for say.. asian, for example. Someone may say "I'm really into asian guys" and everyone would be fine with it. But saying "Man asians don't tend to be my cup of tea" is now somehow racist and offensive, even though there are clear physical features that make these groups distinct. It would be understandable if that weren't the case.. but it is! Asians, blacks, whites, and other races tend to have distinct physical features as groups!
Racism stuff is becomming tiring to me these days. People started to read so far into it that it's losing real meaning.
And the age thing too. Someone told me "I'm not usually into younger guys but..." And I thought.... "Well if this guy doesn't like younger guys but seems to like me, I must be somehow better than other younger guys! Great!" Should I be offended that he TYPICALLY doesn't like people my age? Why?
To get back on topic though, when I get a compliment as long as the intention is good it generally doesn't bother me, in fact I like it. And I don't think anyone's ever complimented me with bad intentions.
