Straight Up Now Tell Me

continuing on with my attempt to illustrate 55 Reasons British Men are Bloody Gorgeous with examples of Richard Armitage…it seems that I’ve hit  a snag:

5. The way they’re not afraid to compliment you, straight up 



because Richard doesn’t really compliment “straight up”, does he? I actually like that he doesn’t. while it’s fun to be flirted with in that way, you can’t help but be left feeling like you’re only one in a long line of others. Richard’s flirting style seems to be more subtle. I’m not sure I’d even classify it as flirting, so much as just being playful.


sometimes it even seems to take him unawares himself, consisting of little teasing comments that he can’t resist saying in the moment


while other times he does say them on purpose but can’t follow through with them because they’re too over the top (i.e. creepy)

There are times when he shares a geeky thought out loud

“Has anyone ever told you, that you look like an elf? You should play an elf! You should come over with the potential of doing some journalism and meet the casting director, they would put you in there. You’re built like an elf.”


and there are times when he does it to lighten up the atmosphere


More often than not though, his charisma just seeps out of it’s own accord and I’m not even sure he’s aware of it

So I could only really think of one instance when he “straight up” complimented someone, though it was quick as lightening

can you think of any times Richard has complimented someone, straight up?
