In this world, flattery will get you everywhere. Okay, so that’s not always true, but flattery is usually a good place to start, especially when it comes to the ladies. After all, they’re human just like the rest of us and they like being reminded that they have good qualities. When you speak to women, whether it’s a long-term partner, someone you’re courting, or even just a good friend, it’s always important to offer them compliments. You want to make them feel good about themselves and know how you feel about them. If you need a little help with learning how to compliment a girl, here are the 50 best ways to give a woman a compliment.
Something Superficial (14)
1. I love your hair, eyes, lips, etc.
It doesn’t get more basic than this, but it still warrants mentioning. Even if you like someone for more than her looks, it never hurts to let them know what you like about them physically. Just keep in mind that you don’t want to overwhelm her, so don’t compliment every body part all at once.
2. You look so beautiful right now.
If you don’t want to pick just one body part to compliment, you can’t go wrong with just telling a woman that she’s beautiful. Yes, it’s a little bit of a cliche, but most women won’t take it like that if you say it with sincerity.
3. You have no idea how sexy you are.
Let’s be clear, there’s a difference between telling a woman she’s beautiful and telling her that she’s sexy. By telling her that she’s sexy, you’re letting her know that her beauty is far from ordinary and that her mere presence gets your engine going.
4. I love your style.
To be fair, not every woman cares all that much about clothing and looking fashionable, but some of them do. Until you find out otherwise, it never hurts to let a woman know that you like the clothes she wears and how she puts herself together.
5. That new hairstyle looks amazing.
If you’re going to date a woman or be around one on a regular basis in any capacity, you always have to notice when she gets a hair cut or changes her hairstyle in any way. On top of that, you have to tell her how great it looks on her.
6. You have great taste.
For the record, you’re not complimenting her taste in guys just because she’s dating you. Instead, you should be aiming to compliment her taste if she re-decorated her home, planned an event, or takes you to a new restaurant.
7. I love your smile.
This is another classic compliment, but it’s hard to go wrong with saying it to a woman. The trick is to wait until she’s actually smiling, preferably if it’s something you did that’s making her smile. If you can do that and then drop in a compliment about her smile, her heart will melt.
8. How do you look so beautiful all the time?
You can’t go around telling a woman she looks beautiful all day long. Instead, you can drop this line every now and then to change things up. For some reason, phrasing this in the form of a question is somehow more flattering than just telling her she’s beautiful.
9. I’m always getting lost in your eyes.
If you’re at all interested in a woman, you’ve surely told her how much you like her eyes. But you can take that compliment to the next level by telling her how mesmerized you are by her eyes. Remember, showing is always better than telling.
10. You look beautiful even when you don’t try.
This is a great compliment to pull out when a girl is walking around the house in sweatpants or has her hair up with no makeup on. You don’t want to pull it out every day, and you have to be sincere when you say it, but it’s a great thing to say to a woman you adore.
11. You have the most kissable lips ever.
This is another good example of going above and beyond with a compliment. You can’t always tell a woman that you’re attracted to her lips but rather describe what you like about her lips and the response they elicit.
12. You’ve been amazing in bed lately.
Obviously, this isn’t the kind of compliment you can just throw around. But if you’ve been dating someone for a while, it’s perfectly fine to let them know that you’ve been enjoying your intimate moments together. Plus, some people, both men and women, can be insecure about sexual performance, so a little positive reinforcement never hurts.
13. You’re the most beautiful woman in the room.
When you walk into a party or find yourself in a crowded room, this is the perfect thing to whisper in a woman’s ear. Women can sometimes be either insecure or competitive when it comes to being around other women, so this compliment can help put her at ease.
14. I love the sound of your voice.
Not enough guys offer compliments to women about their voice, but it can be surprisingly flattering to let a woman know that you like the sound of her voice, and more importantly, like listening to her talk.
A Great Personality (14)
1. You always make me laugh.
It always helps to have a good sense of humor and make a girl laugh when you’re trying to court her. But that can be a two-way street. Women want to know that they’re funny too, so it’s important to let them know that she makes you laugh.
2. You just ooze charisma.
Admittedly, this is an unusual compliment and an odd way of phrasing it. But this can be a good way of letting someone know how much you like their charm and entire personality, driving home that you’re attracted to more than just their physical appearance.
3. How’d you get so smart?
Rarely is it enough to just tell a woman that she’s smart. It usually helps to find a clever way to say it. If you phrase it in the form of a question, it’ll be harder for her to dispute the claim that she’s smart.
4. I could listen to you talk for hours.
This is in part a compliment about the sound of her voice, but it’s more so a compliment about the things she says. One of the best ways to get someone to fall for you is to spend all night talking, and every woman wants to know that a guy enjoys talking to them all night.
5. Aren’t you the sweetest?
Calling someone sweet is such an easy and common compliment that you have to find a new way to phrase it. Putting it in the form of a question can be one way to do that.
6. You always know how to surprise me.
Any time a woman does something to surprise you or spice things up, you have to acknowledge it. If she puts in all that effort, you have to let her know that she did a good job. Plus, two people in a relationship should always be looking for ways to surprise each other, so this can be the perfect complement under the right circumstances.
7. You are the sweetest and most caring person I’ve ever met.
One could argue that this is a little over the top. It’s also a little bit of a cliche. But as long as you say it in a genuine and thoughtful tone, you’re almost obligated to say it to any woman you care about.
8. Your mind is as sexy as your body.
When giving women compliments, you have to give equal attention to her mind and body. Obviously, most people don’t think of someone’s mind as being their sexiest body part, but you should at least try to convince a woman that her mind is just as important to you as her body.
9. Even when you’re grouchy I love you.
Every second of a relationship isn’t going to be bliss, and sometimes you have to remind a woman that even when things aren’t perfect it doesn’t change how you feel about them. Be warned that women don’t always like getting compliments when they’re in a bad mood, but you should give it a try anyway, just in case you can improve her mood.
10. I admire your work ethic.
When a woman has been working hard, sometimes they just need a pick-me-up. Admittedly, it sounds a little odd to compliment something for their work ethic, but it’s an admirable part of their of someone’s personality and it never hurts to acknowledge that.
11. I love how resilient you are.
This is another odd thing to compliment, but it’s a great way to show a woman that you’re interested in more than just her physical attributes. Obviously, you can’t just say it any day of the week, but when she faces hardship, this can be a wonderful way to compliment her.
12. You should be proud of yourself.
Admittedly, this is a little cheesy, but you might be surprised at how much women enjoy being told that you’re proud of them. The key is to wait until they accomplish something that’s a big deal. Just make sure you don’t miss an opportunity to let her know.
13. You always have the best ideas.
This is another compliment that requires a special set of circumstances, but it can be a good one to use. It’s just a different way of telling someone that they’re smart, which is always a good compliment to send someone’s way.
14. Let me guess, in high school, you were voted most likely to keep being awesome.
Sure, it’s hard to say this without making it sound at least a little sarcastic. But not every compliment has to be overly serious. Sometimes you have to joke around a little when you compliment a woman, and this is the perfect way to do it.
Go a Little Deeper (12)
1. I learn so much from you.
If you’re around someone on a regular basis, it’s only natural that you learn and grow because of them. It’s also important to let them know the positive influence they’ve had on your life.
2. I feel so comfortable around you.
Oddly enough, this is one of the biggest compliments you can give a person. It’s not easy being comfortable and at ease around another person, especially early on in a romantic relationship. Saying you feel comfortable around someone, especially if you mean it, is kind of a big deal.
3. You have so much warmth in your eyes.
Sure, you can tell a woman how much you like her eyes, but this takes things to another level. Any woman will like being told that there’s more to her eyes than just a pretty color.
4. You understand me so well, it’s like you can read my mind.
Okay, so this kind of sounds like a line a guy will say to get himself into a woman’s good graces, and that’s because it’s a wonderful thing to say to someone. You just need to make sure that it’s actually true and you mean it if you’re going to say it.
5. I wish I had met you sooner.
This line can be a bit of a cliche, especially early in a relationship. But if you say it in a genuine way, any woman will love to hear it. After all, if you really have a connection with someone, you will actually lament all the time that passed before you met them.
6. I trust you implicitly.
Having a physical attraction to someone is important, but there are few things more important in a relationship than trust. You may be surprised at how much it’ll mean to a woman to hear from you that you trust them.
7. You’re not like anyone I’ve ever met before.
With this compliment, you don’t necessarily want to plan on saying it ahead of time. This is something that you have to mean when you say it. But if it happens to slip out of your mouth, any woman will love hearing it.
8. You’re my favorite person in the world.
When your relationship with someone starts to get serious, this better be true. That being said, it never hurts to actually verbalize it to a woman. To be honest, you should probably prove this to a woman with your actions, but words can be nice too.
9. I love making you laugh.
This is a borderline-brilliant line to say to a woman. It’s one thing to say that you like the sound of her laugh, which is also a nice compliment, but saying it this way makes it sound like your only goal in life is to make her laugh, and she will surely love that your attention and focus are completely on her.
10. The more I learn about you the more I love you.
Okay, don’t say this if you don’t mean it because it means things are getting serious. But if you’re truly in the middle of falling for someone, this can be a great way to convey that and let them know how much you’re enjoying getting to know them.
11. I don’t think I could live without you.
This is another serious and almost scary thing to say to a woman. But there may be no greater compliment than hearing from someone that they won’t want to live without you. Just make sure she’s ready to hear you make such a massive declaration.
12. I’ll never forget the first time I saw you.
Before you say this, you just need to make sure you remember the details from when you first saw her because you will be obligated to share them. As long as that’s not a concern, it’s hard to find a better compliment than telling someone that the first time they saw you is burned into your memory.
Create Some Romance (10)
1. How did I get so lucky to be with you?
Obviously, this is a rhetorical question, but it’s among the sweetest of rhetorical questions you could ever ask a woman. She might be a little taken aback hearing it, but she’ll be flattered to hear it.
2. I think you’re perfect just the way you are.
It can be a lot of pressure to tell someone that they’re perfect, so be careful about overdoing it with this compliment. But if you get the sense that your lady friend is in need of a pick-me-up or is lacking in confidence, this is a great way to boost her spirits.
3. You light up any room you walk into.
Yes, this line is a little cheesy, but if you’re sincere when you say it and use it at the right time, it’s bound to make any woman swoon. It’s also a great way of telling a woman that she’s radiant.
4. I feel so lucky when I’m around you.
There’s an almost infinite number of ways to tell a woman that she’s special, and this is one of the better options. To be fair, this needs to be said with a great deal of sincerity, but if you can pull that off, this is the perfect compliment.
5. You’re the reason my life is so perfect.
If you don’t want the pressure of telling someone that she’s perfect, this line is a great alternative. You’re putting the focus on yourself and simply giving her the credit for making your life so great.
6. Spending time with you is the highlight of my day.
It’s easy to tell someone that you enjoy spending time with them, but why not phrase it in a more flattering way?
7. I start my days with you on my mind and end my day with you in my dreams.
Admittedly, the compliment here isn’t all that obvious, but there’s no doubting that this is a romantic thing to say to your lady friend. The gist is that she’s always on your mind, which is essentially a compliment.
8. I could stare into your eyes forever.
You could tell a woman that you think her eyes are pretty, but saying this will add a little more romance to the atmosphere. Even women who aren’t great at receiving compliments will love to hear this.
9. Being with you makes everything better.
Yes, this line is almost a little too sappy, but for some people, it’s actually true. If you mean it, there’s no reason not to let your special lady friend know that they make your world a better place.
10. When I’m with you, nothing else matters.
Obviously, this is a powerful thing to say to someone, as you’re giving them the power to block out the rest of the world and take away all of your problems. It’s a lot to say to someone, but it’s also an incredibly romantic compliment.
