When men are hoping to impress a woman, they often agonize over the perfect thing to say.

Something which will get their attention and make them feel good about themselves, and hopefully not offend or demean them.

If they find the right words, they may likely find themselves with a new girlfriend, future wife, or even a life-long friend.

After all, finding the perfect compliment can go a long way.

Of course, this is a two-way street, and men also enjoy it when they are complimented.

Perhaps even more, and arguably, a little too much.


Redditor kipskip_ was curious to hear what men thought the best possible compliment they could receive from a woman was, leading them to ask:
"Guys of Reddit, what is the best compliment a girl could give you?"

No Pretending Required

"I can be myself around you."- noah1000000999

"Whenever a girl says she feels safe around me or feels secure/comfortable makes me feel so good it's indescribable."

"Makes me feel very manly."- kipskip_

I'll Take Them All!

"Pretty much any compliment will do."- Mysterious_Drama2772

"Any..."- Sk0ts

The Devil Is In The Details

"When I was younger, I had a meeting with a beautiful, slightly older woman from a different organization that I admired in our industry."

"When we were shaking hands and saying hello, she thoughtlessly blurted out, 'Oh, you're cute', then apologized and said she's not hitting on me and that she's married."

"Then, she tried to change the topic by talking about one of my recent projects, which I was surprised she knew."

"Both were nice compliments."- NoConsideration5775

Keep It Simple

"I like you."- Smirknlurking

It's Worth the Weight

“'I love you'."

"Yet to hear it but I imagine it sounds good."- Or4ngut4n

Or Just "You're Cute" In General...

"'You're cute when you're excited'."

"Still riding the high from that one, and that was 3 years ago."- JackCooper_7274

Striking Resemblance

"Girl at the mall told me I looked like Ryan Gosling."

"She couldn’t be more wrong, the comment was an affront to everything Ryan Gosling stands for."

'T'was appreciated however."

"Gonna be riding that high for the next 3-37 years"- -Praetoria-

Noting Beats A Good Conversation

“I like talking to you.”- cszack4_

When You Got It, Flaunt It...

"A girl at work told me another girl told her that I have a nice a**."

"She tried to keep the girl anonymous but I tricked her into admitting who it was."

"The one that told me also complimented me on my legs and looks in general."

"Feels weird being complimented on my a** and legs as a guy but I guess it's better than nothing?"- Lambesis96

It's All In The Eyes...

"A female friend of mine once told me I had 'kind eyes' when I smiled."

"Best compliment I ever received."

"I just smiled normally and genuinely, and she picked up on it."

"Man, I miss her."- midnight_reborn

Great Hair Is Hard To Resist...

"'You are hot' would be very surprising yet welcome."

"I also get "your hair looks great" a lot."- KomradeElmo0

Setting Standards For The Future

"Back when I was 9 years old my mum's friend meeting me for the first time told me that once I grow up I will be a super sexy handsome dude all the gals will drool over."

"That didn't happen but it was nice to hear back then."- playerhamdan

Should anyone find that special guy, and want to let him know just how special they think he is, all of the above compliments are a good way to start.

"The road to Hell is paved with good intentions."

An aged old proverb reflecting on when people perform what they think are well-meaning, helpful acts, but in reality, only worsen a bad situation.

A day seldom goes by when people won't notice an example of this, either on the news, in the book they're reading, or simply walking down the street.

This could be anything from someone making promises to help out, but never delivering on them, to saving money for a less expensive cleaner, which turns out to radiate toxic fumes, resulting in the building being closed for an indefinite length of time.

Ideas which might seem good in theory, but are impractical, illogical, or even harmful, in practice.

Unless you grew up with the most doting parents on the planet, there's probably a toy or two that you really wanted as a kid, but never received.

Whether it was too expensive for your parents to afford, or something like a noisy toy that was going to be way too annoying for your parents, there are probably some toys that you really missed out on as a child.

When it comes to fast food places, no two places are the same. Wendy's spicy chicken nuggets are far superior to those from McDonald's, while no one does milkshakes quite like Dairy Queen.

I have always preferred burgers from In-N-Out, but my brother will always go for Five Guys.

There will always be debates when it comes to which establishment does fast food the best.

The biggest debate surrounds the ultimate side dish: french fries.

No one can ever seem to agree on which fast food chain has the best french fries, but that doesn't stop the debate. Redditors are engaged in that very debate as we speak!

People Dispel Common 'Facts' That Are Total BS

Some people will just believe anything.

And if you call a statement a fact long enough, many people take it as gospel.

Some facts are absolute truths, others can be malleable.

Science changes.

History evolves.

Lies are exposed.

And research is an actual art form.
