Is "interesting" really a compliment?

2021.10.27 03:32 ArkynAzylum Is "interesting" really a compliment?

I'm a 23 F. So, in my experience, I get called "interesting" a lot. In recent years, I especially have been called that by men. Seriously, it was often just that specific word, nothing else. Some people did try to explain what they meant, but not many were really able to clarify it very well (some, couldn't even explain it at all). Whenever I hear someone say, "I think you're interesting," (some spice it up a little, by adding "very" to that), I often can't help but be confused. While I am known for some eccentricities, I am still admittedly very reserved and keep mostly to myself. I'm a classic introvert, as I don't really do a lot of "fun" activities like partying (I literally prefer reading, art, writing, etc.) or well, much interaction. I also am not much of a talker, in person. In fact, I am fairly certain I'm quite boring to hang out with, lol. So for this reason, I often can't help feeling like the word "interesting" makes no sense in this context. Mayhaps, I'm overthinking it, but, it seemingly becomes rather odd when you notice a LOT of people describe you this way. Typically, I just try to be polite about it and just say thank you and change the topic. However, a few times, my curiousity got the best of me, so I sometimes had to ask, "why?" Why, indeed? It's unclear if they were trying to be polite or just didn't know me well enough to really describe me, so they went with the closest thing to a compliment they could find. However, I am certain that in the wrong connotation, the word "interesting" may come off as a superficial compliment/trait, a backhanded compliment or even a jab at someone who may be considered a deviant in some way. I have had other words (and almost every synonom for them) used to describe me, including but not limited to:
*Blunt
*Weird
*Quiet
*Intimidating?
*Awkward
*Creative
R*arded (yes, actual words some people said about me, just not always to my face)
*Stealthy?
*Smart?
*Kinda mean (depending on who you ask)
*Kinda nice (depending on who you ask)
So, I really am not sure what "interesting" means in this context.
On the other hand, maybe they really do find one "interesting." Maybe that is, as I already mentioned, possibly the only term they could think of to describe someone they took a liking to? Though, in this case, it's probably used to mean they find you charming, and perhaps "quirky," for better lack of words? It truly is hard to tell. I'm not particularly offended by the word itself, rather, I can't help but observe it and be curious about it? I genuinely just don't really get its usage, especially when I've noticed mostly men use it to describe me (not really sure what to think, there). But perhaps, one can't really think much of it when someone else calls them "interesting." I'm not sure, myself. What do you think? Is this something you've noticed, yourself? If you've ever told someone they're "interesting," can you please explain your own context for it? Please do share your thoughts on it whether you've been on the giving or recieving end.

2021.10.27 03:32 Fancy_Situation So who are you voting for?

I’ve been reading most of the threads on the vote and here’s where I’m at:
MAYOR Harrell doesn’t think that SFH zoning is a problem and is firmly on the NIMBY side:
“Another point of clear contrast was on zoning. Harrell attacked González for allegedly wanting to abolish single-family zoning across the city. “My opponent is part of supporting the total elimination of single-family zoning, which is just not my narrative and not my approach,” he said. The city still has unused density capacity, he said.”
https://crosscut.com/politics/2021/10/harrell-and-gonzalez-spar-over-seattle-zoning-housing-and-more-debate
I’m a single issue voter on this topic. Beyond the economics and equality side of things, I don’t think this city can grow and thrive without a change to zoning. Seattle should be looking at Tokyo for ideas, not suburbs.
I’m voting for Gonzalez.
PROSECUTOR Here’s an article also from Crosscut;
https://crosscut.com/opinion/2021/10/seattle-city-attorney-race-beware-rising-crime-alarmism
It uses SF as an example for why being tough on crime doesn’t work. It portrays Davison as a big bad Republican pushing all of their bad policies.
I don’t buy it. If you’ve spent any time in SF, it isn’t a shining example of anything good unless you make $200k+ per year. I saw more crime and degeneracy walking around that city than anywhere else in the US. I love the city, best food scene in the country, but would never want to live there unless I lived in some ivory tower.
I’m tired of the methheads and junkies getting a free pass to treat Seattle like their bathroom. I actually live in this city (Central District) and my back alley is full of needles and every now and then someone will shit all over the garage door to my building. There was a shooting a few months ago and every night when there’s a bang I wonder if it’s construction or a gunshot.
I would not want to walk around in this city at night. I don’t care if Davison is technically Republican, I’m tired of this shit.
I’m voting for Davison.
Beyond those two elections, what else do you guys feel strongly about?

2021.10.27 03:32 chrispykabe 13일: 한국어를 공부하는 방법

솔직히 제 한국어를 공부하는 방법이 특별하지 않는데 다른 주제를 생각을 못 해서 오늘의 스트리크 이걸로 쓰겠습니다.
한국어를 공부하기 제일 시작했을 때는 그냥 노래 가사로 새로운 용어를 배웠어요. 제가 한국 음악을 좋아하기 때문에 재밌는 방법이었어요. 특히 후렴에 나오는 가사가 두번, 세번 반복하고 곡의 내용을 알게 될 수 있기 때문에 단어를 좀 더 쉽게 외울 수 있는 것 같았어요. 근데 가끔씩은 곡의 내용이 너무 추상적이나 비유가 많아서 번역한 후에도 이해를 잘 못 했어요.
그래서 더 일상적인 단어를 찾기 위해서 예능 프로그램을 보기 시작했어요. 보는 프로그램 중에서 ‘아는 형님’이랑 ‘놀라운 토요일’이랑 ‘집사부일체’를 가장 좋아합니다. 이런 프로그램을 본 후에 이해하는 실력이 많이 늘었어요. 단어의 발음이랑 억양을 어떻게 해야 되는지 제대로 잘 들릴 수 있으니까요. 또 좋은 장점이 뭐냐면 자막이 있는 거예요.
공부를 재밌게 할 수 있는 방법이 정말 많는 것 같습니다.
