The girl who works the desk at my gym paid me a compliment yesterday. "Im so proud of you, you work out so hard and never miss a workout". I was a little shocked because our prior contact has only been the typical hi-bye that you get walking into and out of the gym. This was the first time either of us have said anything on the floor that wasnt pure business.

The question is, are all compliments to be taken as someone trying to open?
