I see myself as beautiful, but if I wasn't beautiful to the majority of men I wouldn't know...hmmmm
Anyway I'll just tell you my experience with being told this...
1.) The men I'm attracted to are just the right ones to handle this situation with grace, they let me know intially that I'm good looking but they wait until they know "me" as a person to say they find me beautiful.
2.) These men sometimes have good intention but it's not something that gets me excited, because I know they're just going off appearance.
Overall: When I'm told this upfront by any man I just say thank you, and see where exactly he's going with it...i'm beautiful and...?
I've only been told I'm beautiful by two guys I've been attracted to, and I met both of them online. I've been told by some guys that I'm not really attracted to as well, also mostly online. It's not that I'm only online... I just don't get compliments from real life guys for some reason. Ever.
If she is really beautiful it probably didn't make any different to be quite honest.
I don't particularly consider myself to be beautiful but at the same time I don't really hate my looks or anything and I get told often enough that I look good, after awhile I guess it kinda stops meaning anything.
I don't know how pretty I am but my boyfriend sends me "good morning beautiful" text messages to me every morning. And occasionally at random times will tell me that I'm so pretty/beautiful or whatever.
And yes, it definitely makes me super happy to hear that from the guy I'm with. I'm sure you did make her day even if she didn't reply (which is completely understandable since she has a boyfriend). All girls like to be told they're beautiful/attractive.
They get told they are beautiful all the time by men they are attracted to and men that they are not attracted to. They many not always get told that they are beautiful constantly per say...but they get quiet a lot of attentiont though, like they get a lot of guys doing stuff for them or they get a lot of guys talking to them in one way or another.
Don't believe that bull sh*t that women say that beautiful women don't get told that they are good looking all the time because guys are scared to say that because how good looking they are...That is just some bs excuse to tell themselveds that because they get a few guys flirting with them it must be because they are good looking pfffffh.
