Complimenting people


I noticed I have a habit of complimenting people that they look like a famous celebrity. I don't mean to be insulting or too nice, I just have this habit for the longest time and I wonder if it is bad. I see it like an icebreaker, and I've had it done to me too and I actually enjoy it. Most of the people who complimented me looking like someone famous have been great matches, which is, I like the actresses or musicians or etc as well and slightly or fully agree that I look similar to them.

It's a mixed bag from my personal experience. Some might like it. Some might not, as they feel like it takes away their own identity. People not seeing them for who they are. I will tread lightly with that, unless you know them well.

The truth is strictly what the ones in power perceives it to be.

Enjoy any good things, even the little and menial ones, as you will never know what impending distresses could descend upon you in a moment.

I can generally agree with Blue Dino's post. With that being said, if you've been doing it for years and if in general, everyone's response is to be very flattered/ positive, then I wouldn't worry too much.

What vibe do you normally get from people when you mention their resemblance to a celebrity?
