If there's one thing we know about girls, is that a compliment melts them right through their cores. Guys too, no doubt, love it when the fairer sex passes a compliment or two, who doesn't? But when it comes to girls, you can't help but admit how adorable it is when she turns her eyes away, or how she cocks one eyebrow and smiles naughtily after hearing your unexpected compliment. The trick is to come off as genuine, and not just say it because you're trying to get something from her.
Girls don't like guys who lie to get attention; it's a cheap trick that doesn't deserve to be played on a good girl. Let's take a look at how to compliment a girl you like, without coming off as cheesy or pathetic.
How to Compliment a Girl You Like
It's important that you know how to stand confidently in front of a girl, and not like you're cowering from some kind of impact. Stand tall, keep your shoulders straight, and speak in an assured tone that doesn't waver to reveal how nervous you are.
- Lean in and tell her that the only reason you pass silly jokes is to make her laugh, so that you can see her great smile.
- Ask her to watch the sunset with you and then tell her how beautiful she looks in its receding soft amber glow.
- Pay attention to what she wears; compliment her when you see something new.
- If you notice that she's wearing her hair differently, don't hesitate to point out which hairstyle makes her look prettier.
- Compliment her in front of her friends; she'll feel embarrassed but in a good way.
- If she's upset about something, tell her that you know she's a strong, able person, who can handle the big bad world. Don't forget to add how impressed you are with these particular qualities. If she doubts herself, you'll only make her feel better and encourage her to tackle her problems better.
- Send her flowers on a random day of the week, affixing a note to the bouquet that reads, "To the prettiest girl in school. From the luckiest boy in the world."
- If she ever puts herself down in front of you, whether it's about how she looks or what someone said to her, firmly disagree with what she's saying, and tell her that it doesn't matter what other people think or say. Say this, "What matters is, I think the world of you. You should see yourself as someone quite special."
- If she plays an instrument or sport where you can't help but be impressed, tell her how well she does it and couldn't imagine being as good as she is.
- Send her coffee from the canteen with a post-it on the front that says, "My day doesn't just begin with coffee, it begins with you."
