Being a dentist, the best compliment for me is when my patients tell me that it was the most painless dental experience they had and because of me they have finally overcome their dentist phobia.
"You're all baby" - of course I didn't know what it meant at the time, though now it is blaringly obvious. I just smiled. The stranger must have thought I was being rude. I wish I could go back and say a big "Thank you" to her. It's nice when people compliment you, especially when you feel like a ten ton whale.

I got a complement on my last working day in my previous company for being the best HR..That is the best complement I have ever got.
One from my partner when he read one of my theatre reviews a few months ago:

"Must say that I am really impressed with the article. Your creativity and way with words shines through. I am pleased to hear that your article has been successful. It was an excellent piece. I was surprised that you had the concentration to write such quality at that time of night."
''You don't look your age''
I think my biggest compliment was being told by someone that I made them want to be a better person. As I was a teenager at the time it made my heart instantly melt!
I was at a festival and the guy on the gate of the bar tent looked at my wrist band to see that I was over 18. I am more than double that so I was absolutely STOKED!
When I was younger, I always used to get complimented on my smile and teeth.
Don't know what has happened but it must have changed, as don't get this anymore!

The receptionist at TAFE questioned my year of birth saying I didn't look old enough to have been born in that year.
I got a comment on a group walk a couple of years ago, from someone who I'd only met that day, saying that 'I didn't look old enough to have a father who lived thru WWII in Germany.' after the war topic came up.
(for the record it was his second marriage to my mother and he was older than the average father would be)

Usually being told I don't look my age. A guy recently thought I was in my 50s - I am 70, so I was well chuffed at that. Mind you the light might have been particularly flattering at the time!
When I was told that I was very good listener.
Earlier this year in an amateur orchestral tutor session, with a professional from the state's symphony orchestra, she singled me out for a particular note of a chord ( I was the only one playing that note at all) and then said how in tune it was.
Being a string player, this isn't always easy as one has to find the right spot on the fingerboard but this note was easy for me as I didn't have to change position.
Still, I took the compliment that night.
