    Right, I'm being thought of as a right weirdo at work now solely for calling a girl pretty. I am happily married and have no interest in this girl romantically whatsoever, I just said it not really thinking it was that weird.

    So should I have just not said anything and kept my thoughts to myself? Do you never call a woman good looking unless you are single and looking for something? Just thought it an odd reaction to what I thought was a completely innocent comment!

    It was innocent mate, I say that in front of mrs death now and then, she either agrees or not, no big deal. I am sure the woman would be flattered rather than have some idiots take offence or call you weird on her behalf..!

    I bet that girl in accounts is "pretty" good at having all holes filled at once.

    I reckon most just think you're flirting (no matter how you plead your innocence)

    Ps. F*cking weirdo. ;o)

    Well I'm 30 and most of the other staff are early twenties and all hang around together and one of them was complaining about not being able to find a boyfriend ( the usual bollocks) and I just said I'm surprised at that as you're a pretty girl, I'd have thought you'd be fighting them off. Maybe they think of me as an old fart and it weird coming from an older guy. Who knows.

    I would say pretty is not exactly falling over yourself to give somebody a compliment, (if you are bothered by the "mither") next time I would go with "they look nice", about as stale as it gets as far as compliments are concerned. Probably more of a case of bored co-workers acting and gossiping like bored school girls, or somebody winding you up.

    However, if you are looking for a bit on a side, PM me some pics and I'll give you an opinion on whether she is worth the bother.

    I think that must be it, its hard to compliment a woman without coming across as flirtatious! Maybe I should have just kept my mouth shut. Don't think it'll have any long lasting effects.
