Not every compliment is taken well.
You may think you’re being really smooth, but you could just be insulting her. Yes, it’s another flirting minefield. Not all compliments are well taken, in fact, some are taken really badly. So badly you get a drink thrown in your face. Here are some things that sound like a compliment, but should never be said aloud.
- “You Look Like You Enjoy A Good Meal” –Um, say this to every lady you meet if you never ever want to have sex again. This is not a compliment. You may as well scream “You’re fat!” in her face, because that is exactly how she’ll take it.
- “You’re A Bubbly Girl” – Yet another compliment women will interpret as an insult. Again it’s about their weight. To a woman, bubbly means overweight. And not just overweight, annoying too. Fat and overcompensating for it. Avoid saying this at all costs!
- “Your Personality Is Great” – Wow, what a terrible compliment. It completely lacks imagination. It’s like you’ve resorted to a generic compliment because you’re not really listening to anything they say. And you have nothing of substance to comment on. Once again commenting on the personality of a woman you have just met will be taken as an insult about their looks. Just stay safe and say they have pretty eyes or something.
- “You Look Fine” – It’s amazing that anyone still thinks this is an acceptable way of describing a woman’s appearance. ‘Fine’ is probably the worst adjective you can use. After spending all that time to look good for you, if the best you can come up with is ‘fine’, you better hope your sofa is comfortable. Stick with something above four letters. Try ‘beautiful’ or ‘gorgeous’ to make it to the bedroom.
Remember, not every compliment is taken as a compliment. Avoid these flirting mistakes. And if you don’t, well, let’s hope your grovelling skills are up to the task.
