According to a University of Zurich researcher, Christoph Korn, when you receive a compliment, it lights up the same two neurological reward centers that are lit up during orgasm.

And when it comes to girls and women, then a guy needs to have an excellent cache of meaningful and sincere compliments to light up her face.

It’s important.

“Why?”, you ask.

Because if you want to get a girlfriend, one of the top ways to get started is to start with a compliment.

It’s pretty easy and straightforward to flatter someone that you have a romantic interest in.

It usually makes them flirt back too, which can be a pretty win-win situation.

Not all compliments are the same though.

If you want to win your way into a girl’s heart or to crack a warm welcoming smile from her, then you have to find the ultimate compliments to give that girl or woman. 

There are also right ways and wrong ways, but fortunately, we have a very handy list of top compliments that might turn a girl into your crush.

Even though she secretly will love your compliments, there are some women who just can’t accept compliments – you might win her over!

That’s because a lot of women put themselves down.

They don’t have the confidence to just relish the compliment because they can’t believe it’s true of what is being said about them. Some women can’t acknowledge a compliment and some just go all silent.

In the last few years, research shows that when it comes to women, they don’t like to be seen as being too confident or cocky by other women.

With confident, bold men they often try to come across as modest and self-effacing.

Women with not so much self-esteem will also often reject compliments because the external positivity clashes with how they view themselves internally. 

But then of course they are pressured to meet impossible standards of beauty; being pressured to improve all the time.

But you can win them over with your positivity and these fantastic compliments!

Follow these steps to make all your compliments a win

1) Be unique

Because often the typical compliments that lots of guys say like “your hair is so long and sexy” or “You’ve got a nice smile” sometimes can sound superficial.

Always be authentic and speak from your heart, because good compliments are usually when you have made the effort to know someone.

2) Be sincere

That might sound like a no-brainer but when you are insincere, your compliments can come across as an obligation; like you are expected to say it or the girl is expecting you to say it – it can come out as dishonest and half-hearted.

Stick to praising her about stuff you believe in.

3) Don’t let it be only about physical appearance compliments

It’s true that men are hugely attracted to beautiful women with fit, stunning bodies; there’s no denying that.

But because it’s so important to a man, they often over-estimate women wanting to be complimented on their appearance.

Women love compliments around their personality, their humor, and intelligence – because they probably want to avoid conversations around physical aspects.

So if you want to get messages back, you could start with things like her hobbies and other things such as the above.

The non-physical compliments let a woman know you like her for her, not just what she looks like.

A 2009 study from the Association for Psychological Science indicates that saying “you are attractive” or “you are beautiful” can hurt women with low self-esteem.

4) Be original without saying the stuff other guys say all the time

Vocabulary and being smart in what you say can demonstrate to your bae that you are educated, eloquent, and intelligent! – All big turn-ons.

You will know all about avoiding the subtle ways of working a compliment that can make you come across as a genuine guy or a condescending jerk.

You will know not to point out shortcomings.

5) Remember that the context matters

For instance, don’t say “I love your laugh” when the girl you are trying to win over is sitting silently.

Wait until you’re joking and laughing, and then say it casually like you really mean it.

You want your compliments to come across as unrehearsed; off-the cuff.

6) Be bold

Because it oozes confidence and appeal!

Right, here we go!…
