Speaking as I guy, I can see where they take it the wrong way because they are hardwired to think a certain way about having curls. I admit I was one of them. I've gotten a few compliments but wish I would get more. Well, I got one the other day from my 67-year old auntie. That definitely made me feel good.
Thank you for saying this. It honestly never occurred to me that a curly guy might need the same kind of encouragement that we curly girls do or that a compliment about their hair might have the same impact it does for us. I am going to keep this in mind the next time I see a guy with great curls.

Thank you!
I appreciate it on any of the rare times I get one. I don't think too many guys will take it the wrong way. If a guys grows his curls, he's more than likely doing it by choice. The ones that don't like them will cut them off as I did for 20 years. Now, I could't imagine myself in anything other than curls.
