The best compliments for a girl that work like a charm

Some girls are harder to get and require a strategically crafted compliment or two. It’s okay. It will be worth it in the long run, I swear.

Maybe you feel like you aren’t romantic or creative enough to craft a compliment to catch a girl’s attention. If true, you’ve come to the right place. I’ve compiled a list of the best compliments for a girl, that really put her heart in your hands.

#1 “You make me feel so comfortable.” There is no greater honor than being told you are a comfortable presence. So many things in this life give stress and anxiety, so to be told that you rid somebody of those feelings is a wonderful sentiment. [Read: 14 steps to emotionally connect with someone you like]

#2 “You have a beautiful soul.” This may sound very “hippy-dippy,” but this is a beautiful compliment to give a girl. A friend of mine used to tell me this often, and I still say to this day that he gave me the best compliment I ever received. It speaks to so much more than their looks or personality. It’s everything about them—every single layer.

#3 “I like your taste in music.” Again, this compliment goes so much deeper than the surface. It speaks to your values, style, and life experiences. The type of music you listen to really says a lot about who you are as a person. [Read: 35 questions to ask the girl you like]

#4 “You’re always there for me.” This may sound like a “thank you,” but it really is a compliment. It says she is a nurturing and warm individual. She cares about other people more than herself at times. That really makes a girl feel good. Whether she wants to be a mother one day or not, it is in her nature to be motherly to those she cares about. This compliment always make a girl feel respected and appreciated.

#5 “I miss you.” Another compliment that doesn’t really sound like a compliment on the surface, but, trust me—this three-word statement melts a girl. You’re thinking about her, and you wish she was there? Win-Win-Win! [Read: The right way to compliment a girl and leave her blushing]

#6 “I wish you were here.” Just like the previous statement, a girl likes to feel appreciated and missed when she’s not around. If you do something that you wish she was there for, tell her! She feels important to you, and that is truly what every girl looks for.

#7 “I can’t wait to go to __________ with you.” If you make future plans with a girl, this means something. Even if you casually bring something up and say that it would be cool if she went with you, she appreciates it.

If you show interest in sharing any moment with a girl she will be immediately interested in you and spending more moments with you. This compliment also tells her that you want her around for longer than just ‘right now’.

#8 “You are my everything.” It’s cheesy, and it’s old school. And it works. It all comes back to the same thing: girls want to feel appreciated. Telling her that she is your everything tells her that she is incredibly appreciated in your life. And this speaks volumes about how you feel about her.

#9 “I saw ________, and it reminded me of you.” If you spend time with somebody, things begin to remind you of that person. It’s completely natural. If you go about your day and something reminds you of her, tell her about it. Knowing you think about her during the day means you are truly interested in her, and she will be super flattered by this compliment.

#10 “My friends/family really like you.” You know just as well as anybody that your friends and family know you better than anybody else. Maybe even better than you know yourself. If they like her then she’s a winner. She deserves to know those things, don’t you think?

 #11 “I love your laugh.” Many girls aren’t super confident in their laugh. Hearing somebody compliment their laugh is a big deal. Use this one because it works every time.

#12 “You’re so cute.” So, basically a lot of girls like to feel tiny and pretty. Cute implies tiny and pretty. [Read: 50 really cute things to say to your girlfriend]

#13 “You’re so strong.” Some girls won’t like to be called cute. If they don’t like to be called cute, chances are they will like to be called strong. Really though, any girl accepts this compliment with a smile on her face.

#14 “Talking with you is so easy.” Similar to the first point *you make me feel so comfortable*, girls like feeling like they make you calm. Since it is incredibly difficult to make some guys open up and talk about their feelings, if you tell her that talking with her is so easy, she feels special and accomplished in the task of making you talk. It sounds silly, we know. But it works. [Read: 21 things a man should never ever say to a woman]

#15 “Your hair looks nice like that.” Look, we know that you don’t notice when we do our hair, okay? Secrets out. When you tell a girl that her hair or makeup, or really anything looks nice, she will be taken by surprise because this isn’t something that she hears every day, at least not from guys. Like I said, it’s easy to tell a girl she is beautiful, so stand out with this compliment.
