If someone was to call me a "wise Zen-master". It would be an ultimate compliment.

I'm not there yet, though.

That I have a nice singing voice. I'm super self conscious about it, and all I really want is someone to honestly tell me it's nice without sugercoating anything.

I haven't heard you sing but I can tell you most people that sing and act confident tend to sing with their mouths/throats open a bit more, and it makes their singing sound nicer. So fake it till you make it works ;)

I think it is best to compliment someone on something they do or have done. Complementing one for having nice skin or eyes is like saying "hey, your parents were attractive, huh?".

That I'm thoughtful. I've always had anxiety about my intelligence due to having a hard time in school, along with bullying and emotional abuse from my mom, so for someone to say that I'm thoughtful would be a huge thing for me.

Honestly, I’m sated with a simple ‘you’re pretty’.

I appreciate your asking this question. I spent some time thinking about it and eventually came up with an answer too personal and dangerous to share here, but I learned a lot about myself!

On a less intense level, I enjoy real compliments about any of my gender expression things.

lovely , wild. to be admired for honesty/awareness and compassionate / empathic affectivity. also the best compliment is complementary, free of sugar-coating Niceties and Obligation. it includes negation, shadows and Darkness.

When it's something I've been struggling with and working at. I know I have some (putting it mildly) shortcomings, so when I'm working on bettering, for example, how disciplined I work at something, and someone mentions I did well in that area (without knowing I was working on it!) it really means something.

If someone gives me a compliment i compleatly seize up and ends in me saying "yes".

"Oh, your X looks really nice" when I do something different always makes my day*, but something like "You're nice/empathetic/etc." makes me really happy.
*though tbh anything gender-affirming will do

When a good friend messages "<3" to me, it just melts my heart. :)
