“Compliment me on something other than my appearance.”
Women like to hear that they are beautiful. Compliments on their appearance will make them smile. Men know this well. Unfortunately, that sometimes means that all of their compliments focus on a woman’s appearance. After all, that is what they want to hear, right? Not quite. Women like it when you compliment them on their appearance, it is true, but if you only ever praise her looks, she will think that is the only reason you are interested in her.
Appearance-based compliments are fine for a first or second date, but as you get to know her, you should have found other things about her that you like. Praise her sense of adventure or fearlessness. Tell her that you admire her for all the volunteering she does in the community or that you love how she always tries to help people. Compliment her brains, her dry sense of humor or resourcefulness. She likes it that you think she is beautiful, but she needs to know you care about more than just her looks.
