At a church meeting yesterday a woman only a bit older than me came up and said, "Oh, you look good!" It is weird because
1) I do not. I'm heavy, my face was mostly bare and my hair scraped back. I was wearing a sort of flattering black top and jeans, so maybe? and
2) she is highly coifed and put-together at all times: full makeup, always blond, short, stylish hair, so she knows "looking good."
There is the likelihood she's just being nice and it's something she says to everything. I don't have that knee jerk reaction usually. I do compliment people on beautiful clothes or new hair. Meh, I don't know.
I'd like to think that it's because I'm "beyond" appearances or don't pay attention to them and look at the real person, but no. It's mainly that I am oblivious and/or mean.
