How to compliment a woman without being abrasive or somehow insulting her or without making it weird.

Many people don’t know how to compliment a woman without being abrasive or somehow insulting her or without making it weird.

And these days, a lot of men complaining that they don’t know how to safely compliment a woman. Even small acts performed with very good intentions can come across poorly, and it can be difficult to navigate what is and is not appropriate. A compliment can easily cross lines, so lets dig here some tips to help you stay in the compliment safe zone:

You don’t need to do it.

Unless you’re in a feelings circle and everyone is required to say one nice thing about the person to their left or whatever, giving a compliment is never mandatory.

Don’t comment on women’s bodies or her physical looks.

This, should be obvious, but you should never compliment a specific body part. Specific body part compliments are only for people you’re dating or sleeping with.

Don’t make a joke of it (compliment)

Flirting can be scary at the best of times. You’re making yourself vulnerable when you do it, and it’s perfectly natural to want to offset that with humour. You want to tease a woman instead of complimenting her – but being earnest is probably the best approach when it comes to compliments. Women recognise sincerity and are grateful for it. Own the compliment and deliver it straightforwardly instead of dancing around it.

Don’t make it about you.

The first defense against accidental creeping is taking the word “I” out of your compliment. Even the most innocuous compliments adopt sexual undertones when they start with “I.”

Never call a woman “feisty.”

Don’t be abrasive or grudging

It may sound like 101 advice, but sadly many men adopt a slightly hostile or abrasive tone when they compliment women. It’s another defence mechanism that you have to let go of. Keep in mind, the purpose of a compliment is to make somebody feel better about themselves. So do it with a smile on your face and in a pleasant tone.

Stick to professional merits

We tend to neglect non-appearance-based compliments. One positive comment about a woman’s work will go a long way towards making you seem less horny. Most of your compliments should be not about appearance: I would aim for a good 90/10 split with only 10 percent of your compliments being about how someone looks or what they’re wearing.

10 Compliments Women Can’t Resist

  • You look great today.
  • You’re hilarious!
  • I always learn so much from you.
  • You’ve got such nice eyes/lips/teeth/hair.
  • I trust you implicitly.
  • You’re not like everyone else.
  • You’re good at what you do.
  • You’re a good friend.
  • You’re sexy.
  • You’re my favourite person to spend time with.
  • You Always Make Me Feel So Comfortable.
  • Nobody Makes Me Happier Than You.
  • You Have Such Good Taste.
  • You Are So Smart.
  • I Love Your Smile.

So this it is, think about it for a moment or two before you compliment a woman.

Good luck!

I love reading. I think life is too short to read crap books, so I only read books that come highly recommended. I like reading from all genres. Trashy chick lit, hard-core sci-fi, fantasy, thrillers, crime, classics.
