Tell Her She’s Beautiful

Is that true?

Do beautiful girls need to hear that they are beautiful?

And if so, how do we do that?

I’ve wanted to compliment women before on their beauty but I’ve often been afraid of the reception I’d get. I don’t want to make someone feel uncomfortable. I don’t want to put forth unwanted comments. And I don’t want to come off as sexist.

So what do I do?

I’m not talking about cat-calling either. Men have no business shouting at a woman, whistling, or make rude gestures. I’m talking about a sincere compliment with no attached awkwardness or sexual pressure.

For example, last week I went downtown. I walked past a bus stop and noticed a young lady waiting for the bus. She looked like she might have been a college student. She was absolutely stunning. I walked past her and thought to myself, “She is gorgeous!”

I didn’t say anything, however, because I didn’t know how to.

Can you tell a random person that you find her attractive? Do some of these women want to hear such a compliment? And what you about someone you know? Can you tell a co-worker that she looks good on a given day?

What do you think? 

For the guys out there, do you compliment women often on their beauty? And how do you go about it?

For the ladies, do you like to hear compliments on your beauty? Does it make you uncomfortable?
