The Woman’s Guide to Complimenting

Laura’s Take: Believe me, there’s a right way and a wrong way! Let me start off with a few of the right ways. We like to be complimented on our beauty, our natural beauty. A simple, “Your smile is so beautiful,” will really let a woman’s guard down. Since she knows you like her smile, she’ll tend to smile a bit more for you, making for a much more comfortable atmosphere. Another thing women love to be complimented on is their personality/characteristics. For instance, “You have a great sense of humor,” or “Your laugh is adorable!” It shows a woman that you’re more interested in exploring her mind rather than her body. These kinds of compliments are the most important on a first date. You’re still able to compliment her without overwhelming her.

Which brings me to some of the wrong ways. Overwhelming a woman with compliments is a frequent problem I see. Sometimes when a man gets nervous on a date, he figures if he loads on the compliments, it’ll be a sure success. Not quite. Women love flattery, but there’s a point where it’s taking too far. Complimenting too much is actually more of a turn off than too little. When a women is constantly told how beautiful she looks, she begins to think that the man is only dating her for her looks. This goes right along with compliments about her body. For women, a compliment about our body isn’t really a compliment at all, just more of a sleazy come on.

When complimenting a woman, or for that matter, a man, just keep in mind that the best compliment comes right from the heart. If you don’t believe it, don’t say it! Because odds are, she won’t believe you either, which will make for a very tense environment for the both of you.

Kris’ Take:  Guys remember, compliments are like water.  Pour too little on, the flower won’t flourish, throw it into the ocean, it won’t flourish either.

    Hey laura,
    Love the little water story that you say at the end. Its totally totally true! haha

    I think in terms of creating attraction compliments can go a long way, if you use them playfully and you compliment a girl on something that she isn’t usually used to hearing.

    As a general rule, ill tell my guys to compliment a beautiful girl on her intelligence and an intelligent girl on her beauty.

    Works a treat. But always keep in mind. Everyone loves a sincere compliment.

    Kris’ Take: I keep it honest, but luckily for me Laura is the most beautiful girl on the face of the planet and the most lovely and kind 🙂

  4. Hot Tamales Says:

    Laura’s Take: Awww, you’re so sweet honey. I like the statement Alpha made, “compliment a beautiful girl on her intelligence and an intelligent girl on her beauty.” So I guess that means Kris is saying that I’m an intelligent girl… I am pretty good at spelling.
