The Ego-Stroking Thread

Hey there good-looking! I was hoping you’d read this thread. I’ve been waiting on pins and needles till you showed up.

Wow, you look great. Been working out? And you’ve done something different with your hair haven’t you? It’s a great look for you. Keep it, it’s very sexy. And that outfit you’ve got on is hot! But then again, you look good in anything. No really, you do, don’t play coy with me. You must get a lot of looks on the street, huh? Turning heads left and right I bet.

And are you wearing tinted contacts? I’ve never noticed your eyes were such a deep, intense shade before. Just gorgeous.

I was telling my friends that story you told me the other day. You know the one I mean, you had me laughing for an hour. They loved it, even though I didn’t do it justice. You are just so damn funny and witty! They all want to meet you now, but I know how hectic your schedule is so I didn’t make any promises.

Oh thank…

Nevermind I thought you were talkin’ to me.

I really don’t have anything to say, other than Crunchy Frog’s post looked like every spam e-mail for a porn site I’ve ever seen. But usually the one dispensing the shallow flattery was the “hot chick” begging her readers to visit her site.

So what’s your angle, Mister?

No angle. Just sharing my feelings.

BTW, that lipstick looks great on you! The perfect shade for your skin. rowr

<digs in her purse> All right, how much?

mm, crunchy, you’re good

you should get that published, you could be the next feel-good guru :slight_smile:

Yes, I noticed you too. You’re the reason I come to the message boards, to read your insightful comments, and gain knowledge from the sharing of your experiences.

You have a special way of expressing yourself that makes everything so much clearer. Your use of humor makes the mundane much more interesting, and the depressing more tolerable.

(No, I’m not talking to CrunchyFrog, I’m talking to whoever Crunchyfrog is talking to.)

I have to say that I’m humbled to be among such scintillating conversationalists. Especially you - I could listen to you for hours on end.

And these hors d’oeuvres are wonderful - a taste treat I’ve only imagined before now. I’d ask for the recipe but I know I couldn’t do it justice.

Oh, and you - nice shoes!

Everyone is talking about you, but they’re alll saying different, wonderful things; you are just such a versatile and interesting person and yet you always have time for people and seem so well-at ease.

I’ve never said this to anyone before, but I think of you as my mentor.

I think you show true heart, compassion and honesty in your work. I really admire that. And, you know, I think you’re really smart, and I always respect your opinions on topics which make me think a lot.

How do you manage to do that with your garden? Sheer artistry! And I love those photographs you showed me the other day? Are you a professional artist? You should exhibit!

You know what this thread needs? It needs [Annoying Tag], that’s what it needs.
(For those who don’t know or don’t remember; during the Winter of our Missed Content, the board was temporarily hosted at, where the software supported a tag called [whoview], which, when you read a post, was replaced by the screen name of the person viewing it … people had hours of fun with this, in the less than one day before it was turned off … )

And I just want to interject:
Your poetry is incredible. You really should consider putting a chapbook together, you know.
Also, you’re an awesome kisser.

What is that wonderful scent? Are you wearing a new colonge? I like it, very subtle but sexy… Kinda like you!

And thank you so much for being here. You really help make my day better. You are just like sunshine!

WOW!! If beauty were measured in gold, your looks would fill up ten thousand fort Knoxs!

Forgive me for saying this but, my knees buckle after you speak to me, I get the feeling of a million butterflies in my stomach when I approach you.

You make life worth living my love, you are a perfect human being.

Your character is unyeilding, your very presence is is guilded in platinum. You glow with a radiance unsurpassed in the universe.

I am in love. You make me who I am.

I feel completed when I am near you. Thank you ten thousand times!

Steve, I was thinking the same thing. That freaked me out the first time I saw it.

I’m always hearing from everyone how smart and witty you are. And after having been in various threads of yours, well, I’d have to say they’re right. You are sharp as a tack!

And you have hair that’s to die for.

My friends and I were watching a Stephen Hawking lecture on TV, and the interviewer asked him who his intellectual idols were. We were half expecting him to say your name. If he’d ever met you, I know he would have. We all would.

By the way, I … you know, I’d never noticed how flawless your skin was. Wow. Anyway, where was I? I’d really like your advice on a few things. You’re always able to come up with the right answers to tough issues. They’re not just right, but they’re wise and the way you say them is so witty.

Hey, how do you always manage to look so well put together? I could wear the same clothes, but it just wouldn’t work. You look straight out of a fashion magazine, it’s amazing.

You know, it’s funny, I’ve never heard a bad word said about you, and yet you’re different from everyone else. It seems like you never worry about what other people will think. You don’t follow trends, you set them. I wish I could be like that.

Better be careful how much you stroke my ego… you might get self-esteem all over your shirt.

God, Shibb, I’ve never met anyone like you before. . .

Some great stroking here. Just follow the prompts:

lightningtool that’s almost as good as Crunchy Frog’s. I bookmarked that site for when I’m a little down. I’m what you’d call a “compliment whore”, I suppose.
