Dear Harlan: I’m talking to a new guy. We’ve been on a few dates. The problem is that he compliments me way too much. He’s always telling me how beautiful I am. He goes on and on.

At first I thought it was sweet. Now it bothers me. I’ve asked him to stop giving me so many compliments. He thought that was a weird request. I kind of agree with him, but it’s how I feel. Why can’t I handle compliments? Is there something wrong with me? — Compliment
