    Question Proper way to react to compliments?

    So I've been getting many compliments from women lately, mainly about non-physical things such as clothes. I usually respond with a simple "thanks". I've been thinking about this lately, and was sure there must be something more alpha to say. This usually happens at work, or from people who are working and i usually cant chat them up. So what could be more interesting and alpha to say?

    Thanks!

    Well you could make it seem like there chasing you by saying something along the lines of, "I hope you aren't trying to get in my pants" jokingly with a smile

    I use these often;

    "Do you really think so?"

    "You probably say that to all the guys."

    "Is that your pickup line? Seriously?..."
    "All things are subject to interpretation. Whichever interpretation prevails at a given time is a function of power and not truth."

    just thanks... style mentioned it in his book that the best way to take a compliment is by saying "thanks"... dont try to reciprocate the compliment... you'd just sound like a parrot and it would be in-genuine... if they have something worth complimenting, just do it at a later time during the night (if you're out sarging) or a couple of days later if at work

    I agree, a simple 'thank you baby' will suffice.

    If i get a compliment on my clothing i use it to discuss fashion... like does she think the color works for me or is the sizing correct. Free fashion advice lol

    At the very least you could say something like "thanks for the compliment" or "thanks, I appreciate it", simply because they're more interesting/open than just "thanks".

    Another response could be "Thanks, no one's ever complimented me on these clothes before."
    Always be honest with women. That's the true meaning of a PUA.

    I don't mean that you never get any compliments, just never on "that" set of clothes.

    Looking at it again, I do see what you mean, though. Does sound kind of beta esh.
