I Am Dumbfounded After Hearing These "Compliments" Guys Thought They Gave Women When They Were Just Flat-Out Insults

"I bet you have never been told this, but you're actually beautiful."

TikTok user @playboicatie recently went viral for asking women to share the worst thing a guy has said to them that was meant as a compliment:

@playboicatie

In her TikTok — which has over 3 million views — she says, "I had just started hanging out with this guy and we were talking about music. All of a sudden he goes, 'You know, I really like you. You're different.' And I said, 'What do you mean?' He said, 'I just wouldn't be able to have this conversation with any other girl. They're all just stupid.' Buddy, listen. I'm sure every girl has the intellectual capacity to listen to you talk about Astroworld for 45 minutes. ... The difference is that they just didn't want to and I feel like they are actually smarter than me because they were able to avoid this situation entirely."

User @caseyericka then shared her own story about a time she was hooking up with a guy. He pulled her on top of him and whispered in her ear, "I'm not afraid of big girls."

And some idiot told @beskarbaby that she was "really cute for an Asian girl":

A guy also told user @allydesi, "Wow, that's a really good answer. I didn't expect you to understand the question."

And after user @nadiarahman07 brought up one of her insecurities to her boyfriend, he said, "I noticed this about you and I don't care, but other guys would care."
