This is based on an idea I got from jpallan. It's a bit like one of those memes where the poster gives everyone compliments, only in reverse: you get to pick your own compliment! Radios, not ticky boxes, cos I'm mean like that.
I may or may not actually tell you whether you're right, and I may or may not get round to writing more individualized and specific compliments. I do genuinely like all of you though; I don't have anyone on my friends list who isn't there for some reason!
That's tough. And I don't usually keep track of why different people find me interesting enough to get to know. I don't even always know why I like the people I like. But I liked this one more than Jessica's, because I felt I had better options. Still hard though. And it doesn't really matter which things different people like about me. I think it's better if different aspects appeal to different people, because then it's more like the whole me is useful and appreciated.
I don't usually keep track of why different people find me interesting enough to get to know. I don't even always know why I like the people I like I understand both these things entirely. But jpallan's post made me think it would be interesting to think about.
I felt I had better options. Cool cool. I was trying to make them quite general, rather than something like because of that really nice present you made for me this one time...
I think it's better if different aspects appeal to different people, because then it's more like the whole me is useful and appreciated. Oh, you're absolutely right there. It's good to think of yourself and like yourself as a whole person, if that's psychologically possible for you.
Thing is, dear, you've said so many complimentary things to me at various times This is good, cos I do try to make a point of telling people how much I like them. Properly, as well as playing silly with LJ posts.
I feel quite dizzy looking at this *eyeballs list* Yeah, you can have pretty much any of those. But the point of the exercise is, if you had to pick one, which would you pick?
far too shy and retiring to actually answer Spoilsport! Seriously, does it bother you so much to accept that I really like you? *hug*

*hug* It does not bother me in the least to accept that you really like me, that is something I greatly value and appreciate.
I'm not at all sure why, but the way this is set up - that one is supposed to pick one's own compliment - goes over some emotional line for me into feeling like taking you for granted, and I'm not comfortable there. This is my reaction and my problem entirely.
