You know I personally know someone like this, as old as he is. And to tell you the truth he ain't flawless, he has a few flaws but dresses nice and keeps up his appearance. He mentioned that he is more flattered when a fine woman compliments him because all ugly women will think any man is attractive. How shallow.
Yes, it's about being shallow, but I think all of this stems from insecurities from within. He feel he isn't attractive enough unless an attractive comes to him and tell him what he wants to hear. If an ugly woman (unattractive) compliments him then he feels that he isn't nice looking after all. Trust me when that time comes for a drop dead gorgeous woman wants him.....he will worship the ground she walks on because he will not believe that he was able to attract a woman that fine.
Shallow People like this want to attract what they think they are ;) And to answer your question a compliment is a compliment. When you don't get any compliments, then you should wonder.
