I know how you feel. I don't think I'm pretty at all. If I get any compliments I freeze up and get confused. Most guys seem to notice that the "thank you?" is a bit of a question. I usually assume they're drunk or messing with me. Don't let it get you down! If he's worth keeping, he doesn't mind a little awkward. : )
Social anxiety can be awful. I genuinely struggle with receiving compliments and often end up asking if they're going blind. I don't go to parties or gatherings and I am struggling to learn to drive because, after being on a motorbike for 2 years, I am uncomfortable with another person in the vehicle with me, I have genuinely considered wearing my protective clothing, helmet included, whilst driving my car. If I have to catch a bus I can sometimes come close to a nervous breakdown. When I crashed my bike I apologised to the random passerby, who stopped to help me avoid going into shock, because I felt bad about wasting his time, I broke my rib and suffered from nerve damage down my right hand side, but refused to go to hospital, because I didn't want to waste the doctor's time, despite potential liver and kidney failure caused by the trauma. I literally could have died because I thought that someone else could have needed help more urgently. I have such low self esteem that I genuinely believe that I am useless, despite the fact that I have been accepted onto a university course alongside people who have been working in industry since before I was born. I know that I am not useless, but I can't believe it.
That was a very funny comeback ... I'd have laughed and liked it
I agree, that would be a great ice breaker.
