Ways to Compliment a Girl

Every woman would love to receive compliments. Compliments are simple, yet effective in building relationships. A good compliment can make a girl smile and feel great, while the wrong ones can cause damage. Giving compliments is an art and it is her perception that matters, not your intent.

Vary Compliments

Girls do not enjoy receiving the same compliment repetitively. Discover new ways to praise her. Try to find something that she is proud about, and compliment her on that. Find something unique about her, which she sees as a flaw. Don't overpraise, use compliments sparingly.

Appriopriate Compliments

Compliment her best features, and stop as soon as you get a reaction. Try to comment on features that you think she would like you to notice, like her eyes, hair or smile. Many women are uncomfortable when you praise sexualised parts of their bodies, like bust or backside. Compliment a girl on her looks, not her accessories like shoes or bag.

Thoughtful praise

Do not blurt out a compliment to any girl without thinking. A thoughtless compliment may insult her. Give good quality compliments, rather than many that are meaningless. Keep them light, easy and thoughtful.

Be sensitive

If you are not sure of a girl's background or culture, compliment her character and the values she holds. Avoid any cultural bias in your compliment. If you are not sure of her background, it is better to be reserved.
