Flattery is pretty icky, but what about the other end of the spectrum?

Have you ever known someone who could not give an unqualified compliment to anyone, under any circumstances?

What is that?  

Thanks. :)

What about: With-holding love.

Could be tied up with believing in (that there is a) scarcity of love.

I know someone who has never apologized, ever.

I never have known anyone not to give a compliment but I have seen people who seem to have to fooooooooorce it out. Like it was such an effort. Maybe they feel awkward and are too self conscious anout the words, the tone, the authenticity. Or maybe they think it will give the recipient a big head. Which is stupid imo.

The last guy I dated gave me like one compliment. And it was a really lame one. Libras like compliments! I like to know that the work that I put into my appearance is being appreciated. I think it was about power for him. Like I won something if he showed that he liked me. I think it might be a Saturn in Scorpio thing. I also think it relates to your blog post the other day Elsa, about withholding energy.

Because complimenting someone else takes eyes off them.

Sometimes the exessive flatterers, you just want to tell them to shut up.
