Getting Someone to Fall for You: Compliment Them more Authentically
We've all probably been complimented or have complimented someone at least once in our lives, and many of these may have been cherished, but perhaps it's time to be more genuine. "You're cute" or "I love your eyes" or "Amazing piano skills" are all nice, but don't really SHOWcase what or why you love what you do about a person. Changing the way you compliment people can make a whole lot of a difference.
Let's get started!
Compliment Their Style
Sure, the first thing we might tend to compliment about a person is their eyes or their face or lips, but these are things they didn't necessarily choose. They were most likely born with it. A way to be more genuine might be to compliment their style because it's something they chose. It's authentic and can also be less nerve wracking to do.
Compliment Their Effort
Let's say you see a guy or gal who sings very well and plays an instrument. Don't just be like "Your voice is great" or "that's cool that you play this"; be specific! Compliment what it took to get there like the amount of time, hard work and dedication it took to get there. The same might go for looks even. If someone is slim, compliment the effort it took to get there.
Compliment Their Personality
If someone is kind, show your appreciation by basically glorifying the amazing things they've done. If they're intelligent, compliment their study ethic and specific things that make them intelligent. And remember that traits can be presenting in so many ways. Be creative, genuine and think to yourself "Why?"
The key is to
"Show, Not Tell."
