Knowing how to compliment a girl is pretty important when you’re trying to make a lasting impression. After all, a compliment shows that you’ve noticed how nice a woman she really is.
There are many ways to compliment a girl, and they’re always going to sound nice.
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, women love compliments a lot more than men do.
How to compliment a girl
One of the first things you should know about complimenting a girl is to be sincere.
Don’t just say something nice because you read it in a book or your friend texted you a few complimentary ques.
Be genuine when you compliment a girl, and if she does see the sincerity in your eyes, she’ll be more flattered and will appreciate your compliment.
If you’re just playing out rehearsed compliments, she would only feel uncomfortable and annoyed when she realizes you’re just trying to compliment her to get your way into her pants.
To compliment a girl, you need to understand the different ways you can do it, while flattering her at the same time.
Compliment a girl for how beautiful she looks
This is time tested and perfect all year round. You obviously know your date looks beautiful, or you wouldn’t be with her *yes, we know men are shallow*. So when you finally do meet her at the date, compliment her on how beautiful/cute/gorgeous/pretty she looks. How can you not appreciate such a wonderful woman when she’s taken so much of an effort to look cute as a button just for you?
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. [Read: What to talk about on a first date]
If you can’t help staring at a girl and getting lost in her eyes or her beauty, it just shows how happy you are to be with her. And yeah, you could also tell her how happy she makes you feel. That’s another great compliment for a girl.
Compliment her with words
One of the best ways in knowing how to compliment a girl is to do it with words. Not the spoken ones, the written ones.
Love stories and poems have been written by men to profess their love for their sweetheart. It would be really flattering if you could write a poem, but your girlfriend would definitely settle for something you’re capable of doing, and that’s sending a sweet text after the date or picking a beautiful card to profess your feelings for her.
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.
Compliment her femininity
Compliment her feminine side like kindness, her caring nature, the way she smiles and makes time stand still, the cute thing she does with her hair, or the way she fans herself when she’s feeling hot and the blushing awkward faces she makes when you compliment her.
Knowing how to compliment a girl for her femininity is such a beautiful way to acknowledge her beauty and her sweet ways without really talking about her physical attributes.
Compliment a girl with your chivalry
Men have always been acknowledged as the protectors. When you’re out on a date, make your date feel special and well taken care of. Pull her seat back for her, assist her whenever she needs assistance and pay attention to her every whim and fancy. Being chivalrous and ensuring that the girl with you is having a perfect time is one of the best ways to silently compliment the girl you’re with.
And you can rest assured on this, if you’re chivalrous and warm during the date, she’ll feel warm and fuzzy all throughout the date too! [Read: How to be chivalrous]
Things to know before you compliment a girl
#1 If you’re ever confused about complimenting a girl, some of the best aspects to compliment a girl are her eyes, hair, lips, her fragrance and her voice. It’s safe, and yet, very personal. It’s hard for any girl to forget a compliment that involves these aspects. [Read: What to talk about with a girl]
#2 Don’t ever compliment her girlie parts. You may be tempted to say “you look so sexy” or “I love the way you fit that tee shirt”, but it’s just too physical, especially during the first date or two. You can always use those sexy lines once you’ve grown closer and she trusts you better.
#3 The best compliments are the spontaneous ones. To understand how to compliment a girl sincerely, you always need to remember this pointer. The very instant you lay eyes on her, what do you think? As long as it’s not overly sexual, it’s definitely going to be a truthful and sincere compliment.
