P.S. compliments

By the way, I don't think that a compliment is a boundary crossing, but if it's from a T or pdoc man to a woman client about her being pretty, nice eye color, etc., and repeated a lot, combined with self-disclosure about problems from that professional's own personal life, it can feel somewhat romantic to the younger single woman. This creates an illusion and intrigue, for me anyway, which can end up being quite painful.

(I don't think that a compliment like, you are a very strong/smart/funny etc person is wrong, just the types of compliments above combined with other things.)

I do like a compliment!
