So, I am searching for "people" to answer the following question:

Have you ever been in some way the target of flirtatious behavior in which the suggestion at hand was your physicality or animal magnetism, or what have not be to such a degree that issuer of the flirtation would engage in sex with you?

As a for instance:

"Holy smokes, you are Hot... I would SO be on you..."

Have you ever delivered a line similar in intent?

Did you find it flattering? Insulting? Both, depending on circumstance?

Did you offer such with no immediate intent? DIRECT intent? Intent JUST to flatter or flirt for the sake of flattery or flirtation?

Have you ever issued such to a member of the gender of which you are not sexually compatible?

Just taking a random poll for... reasons.

Never been "complimented" that way except by my wife, and I've definitely never "complimented" anyone else in that way. I've thought it before, but I have a pretty good filter between my brain and my mouth.

It may be helpful to distinguish between online/offline as flirtation can be ramped up online, especially for teens.

I've never received a compliment like the one you described offline and I don't recall ever giving one either, though its not impossible that I could have.

I hope I wouldn't be offended if somebody paid me such a compliment, though its more direct than I would tend to use myself. I'm almost never around people I'm attracted to anyway so don't have an opportunity to flirt really.

Wife counts! I find it flattering when my wife says the same. Its part of the reason why I strive to keep in some... loose variety of "healthy physique".

Do you honestly feel complimented by such words? Does it give you a sense of pride? Accomplishment? Anything?

True, but the feeling behind delivery and acceptance of such a suggestion is what I am angling for.

Would you find such a phrasing, even if crude, to be complimentary?

Mm. Lack of sample set. That does hamper things.

I do feel complimented when my wife says it seriously. Sometimes she's joking, as yours probably jokes with you. It's just nice to know someone I love finds me attractive. I might be flattered if a stranger said it to me, too. I think it's a pretty ridiculous thing to say to someone you don't have an existing intimate relationship with, though.

Sure, though from my social interactions, its occasionally a direct but generally well received "pickup line" by others. I am not saying its successful for the intent, but it could (as you have mentioned) be taken in a complimentary fashion, and without intent.

Sure, flattering I suppose.

I have a discussion with some one else regarding the nature as to whether or not people find sexual advances, and out right sexual proposition flattering.

I was told that unless ALL people found it as such, it was an untrue statement. I countered that I just need "people" not "all people" to find said flattering for my assertion to have some truth to it. So... I am looking specifically for "people", not "all people" in which to answer the poll.
