Daily Dilemma: My Friend Can’t Take A Compliment

By September 29, 2021 No Comments

Dear Doug & Rebecca,

I’ve noticed that a friend of mine just can’t take a compliment. She always responds by changing the subject, deflecting it some other way, or simply remaining silent.  For the record, I’ve noticed she does the same thing with others, whether other friends or strangers. She just can’t say “Thank you,” and I find it rude.

Should I bring this up to her? I’m sure others are bothered by this too.

If you’d like to submit a Daily Dilemma for us to talk about on the air, you can email us at and in the subject line, put “Daily Dilemma”.
