Default Do girls like being told they are beautiful

I know its a little off topic, but its something I have always wondered. I do realize that it depends on the context and how well the two parties know each other, but its an issue that confuses me. Obviously, I have said the aforementioned compliment and hasnt gone down to well. I wont go into details, but from past experience I am now terrified of actually telling a girl that I am involved with that she is beautiful..even though I really mean it. So just wondering.... girls...do you like being complimented in that way? Guys...anyone? ARRGGH...

I am female, and I would say most girls like to be told they are beautiful.

People like to be complimented. Girls want to hear that they are beautiful. Hearing compliments makes them feel loved and desired. Can't really see any negatives in giving someone a compliment.

Like anything else, it depends on who tells them.

If she has SAD she will probably feel a little uncomfortable and flush, but as other users have said, everybody likes being told nice things.

Compliments work, but flattery quite often won't.

Actually...she did have SAD. I didnt realize that until she told me later...I was quite excited about that when I found out. I actually think that because the compliment came from me, it simply wasnt valid.

Interesting question. In many instances (especially early on) I feel that it's such a redundant remark that it tends to do more harm than good - but of course, that depends on the context in which it is said. If I'm flirting with or dating a woman, then I assume she already knows, so why make things more awkward than they need to be? Personally, I prefer to save a comment like that for when the relationship is more developed. Timing and restraint are also important. If we've been seeing each other for a couple of months or so and I drop a well-meant "you look beautiful" just before a night out with her, then that tends to work well because we've gone the distance and I use my compliments sparingly. But if we've just met, I find it sounds shallow and disingenuous. In that sense, I guess my guideline has always been to ask myself "am I important to her?" and if I am, it's safe to say because she will value my opinion. If not, I figure I'll sound like every other dude who tries to chat her up.

This is just what I've noticed so far in life, take from it what you will.
