Wouldn’t you appreciate it if you took a lot of time to dress well and your date complimented you on how nice you look? It feels good, doesn’t it? Your date did notice the fact that you’ve cleaned up. And just like that, girls love to be complimented too. In fact, girls love compliments a lot more than men do. So it’s time to polish your skills and learn how to come up with great compliments for women. Delivering a great compliment will help you break from regular conversation and create a deeper connection.
Here is how to compliment a girl without offending her or being too forward.
1. Stare at her often
Stare at her often when you’re on a date with her. It’s one of the best compliments a guy can ever give a girl. This does come naturally when you’re smitten by a beautiful girl who’s out on a date with you, but remember this as one of those quiet compliments.
2. Compliment her personality
The best thing to compliment a girl on is her personality. This is something that she has a certain amount of control over and it is something that is intrinsically her, rather than something like clothing which usually has very little to do with her and who she is. Think about the things that you like about who she is as a person and what she does, then compliment her on that.
3. Compliment her with chivalry
If you want to compliment a lady, then behave like gentleman to her. Simple acts, such as holding doors open, pulling back her chair for her or helping her off with her coat show that a man thinks a girl is a true lady and that she deserves respect for that.
4. Compliment her for her skills
Most men assume girls don’t like to be complimented for anything other their appearance, but that’s just not true! As a matter of fact, women are so accustomed to being complimented only for their good looks that it doesn’t soften their heart as much as a character compliment could. So the next time you’re out with your woman and she shows off one of her great skills, whatever it may be, compliment her if it awes you.
5. Be unique
If you really want to impress your girl, make your compliments unique. Things like pick-up lines, lists of compliments you find online, and other cookie-cutter compliments won’t work…because they’re all about either another girl or any girl. She’ll notice if you’re complimenting something that could be said to anyone and know you’re just trying to get with her. Cliché compliments that she has heard before may not tingle her senses.
6. Compliment at appropriate times
There’s always a right time and a right place for everything. If she’s still talking to someone, don’t go out there and start giving out your compliment. It would look and sound rude. Compliment her when she’s not doing something else that way she can also appreciate what you said. Make sure that your compliment is related to what you are talking about and proper for the situation. Wrong comments in a wrong situation tend to be unbecoming to girls.
7. Compliment her generously, but not too much
Everything has its own limitation. Giving compliments is sweet but it would seem bad if you do it excessively. Make sure that you do it at a suitable amount so that it will not be mistaken as a joke or a halfhearted comment. Remember, you praise someone because you want to make her special not to make you look and feel good about yourself.
Things to know before you compliment a girl
#1. The thing is, if you build up a girl’s feeling of worth in a particular feature, in most cases that feature is going to go away over time and she’ll end up feeling worthless because it’s gone. So avoid complimenting butt, legs, etc. Eyes and hair, or clothes, are a safer bet.
#2. Don’t sexually compliment girls you don’t know well. This is the biggest no-no when it comes to complimenting girls.
#3. Don’t compliment her just to try to get something you want, she will realize and think you’re lying to her. You should compliment her because you mean it and you want to let her know how special she is to you.
