OK, seriously, I kinda have the same problem when a woman tells me I'm sexy, or even handsome
A Polish guy, Sebastion, at work on Thursday was asking what I thought of his friend, Mateusz. I said he was mad. He said "But he is handsome" and I presumed there was a question mark more than one was intoned, for it was more like a statement followed by waiting for an answer. He is very right, the answer, if I'd given it there and then, would have been that Mateusz is the nicest looking guy I've ever met (I won't say 'ever seen' because I have seen
Jared Leto). Point is, he didn't seem to think it would be anything less than a compliment to his friend if I thought he was handsome.
