Girls are known to like compliments, especially if they are coming from someone of the opposite sex.
Compliments make women feel good about themselves because we often need reassurance that what we’re wearing or how we look is okay.
Compliments are important in any relationship.
Not only do they make the person you’re complimenting feel good, but they show yourself to be a kind, generous, and considerate person.
To start off with, there are two ways to approach a compliment.
The first way is to simply state what it is that you like about someone.
For example, if you were looking at her clothes and thought they were nice, you might say so by saying “I like your shirt.”
Another way would be to tell her what she reminds you of and why that’s flattering.
For example, if you thought she looked like Jennifer Lawrence in Silver Linings Playbook, you could say something like “you look just like Jennifer Lawrence in Silver Linings Playbook.”
If you’re going for this second one, make sure it’s said in a sincere and complimentary tone; otherwise she’ll think you’re just trying to hit on her.
The key to a compliment is sincerity.
If you are not being sincere and the girl knows it, she will see right through you.
But if you can pull off a sincere compliment, the girl will feel like you really care about her and not just trying to get into her pants.
Also, don’t overcomplicate it by saying something like, “You have lovely eyes, they’re as blue as a clear day.”
That’s boring and generic.
Instead, try being more specific, such as:
“I love your boots. I bet you’re getting lots of compliments on them.”
“You look beautiful. What color lipstick is that?”
“What a pretty smile! You’re one of the most beautiful people I know.”
A compliment about her looks doesn’t have to be about her clothing; it can also involve her physical appearance or even an accessory she’s wearing.
For example, if she has an awesome purse on (one with a funky pattern), comment on that: “That purse is so cute! Where did you get it?”
If you’re complimenting her looks, try mentioning something that makes her stand out from the crowd (e.g., “I love your hair color”) or something that reveals something about her personality (e.g., “Your necklace really suits your style”).
This type of compliment shows that you’ve been paying attention to what she’s about and being observant about it.
You can tell if a girl has healthy self-esteem or if she is self-confident by how she reacts to you complimenting her.
So, now that you know the fundamentals of how to compliment a girl physically without sounding awkward, treat yourself to some examples of compliments for a girl’s looks.
