He told me i had embellished... What does it mean?

Now I'm Wondering

There is this guy, we had a lifeguard class together and for a while after, we hung out at the pool to train together. People tought we were dating because we spend so much time together, and of course because i had a crush on him, but eventually,after a few months, i couldn't go anymore so we drifted apart. We reconnected not long ago and we started texting and talking again because our lifeguard jobs were at the same pool but different shifts.We talked about the fact that we both had changed and matured (i mean we're in college now duuhh). But the night after he texted me this: "to come back on what you said last night, you were right, you did change. You embellished in every way. Of course its a compliment but i can't figure out what "every way" means! Please help me out here

I'm assuming your joking about college guys being mature. Definitely are not. Also you probably can't figure that out because it's not a proper use of embellish. It would mean he thinks you are more attractive because you have added fake traits to your personality or your looks. It's actually an insult if he is meaning to use the word how it's intended.

Telling you that you embellished means he thinks you lied about things and made it sound better/more than they are. Thats not a compliment.

If he used the word embellished as it is defined, it is not a compliment at all. It means that you changed into the real you now because you were so fake before, or that you were real then but have now changed because you're fake now. Either way, not a compliment. However, if he meant embellished as in, made something more attractive by adding decorative or ornamental pieces, then he's saying that you've become more attractive in every way, which is an incredible compliment. In this interpretation, every way would mean that you have improved your apoearance, personality, maturity, etc. Look up "embellished" in the dictionary. It means both to improve something's attractiveness by adding genuinely positive traits OR to improve something by adding fake positive traits.
