Question Posted Wednesday September 28 2005, 9:10 pm

i heard that giving compliments is the best way to meet the guy you like. what kind of compliment would be the best if you're giving it to a guy, and you're a girl? "cool shoes?"

anything that doesn't strike the other person as weird that i'm noticing their shoes or whatever.. please help!

i guess find other ways to introduce yourself. if you are in the same class together join in on a conversation he's having with someone else. after you know him, you can start complimenting him. but if you do it all the time, they get annoyed and think your desperate. soo say something like "i really like your shirt today" or something like that. once you're more aquainted, its easier to find sincere compliments to give them.

Well if theyre on a sports team, go to their game, and if they played well go up to them and say "Hey great game last night!" and if they are anything of a good guy at all he'll smile, say thanks, and keep talking to you. Or you can compliment something he's wearing.

well does he play sports, if so, go to a game and afterward tell him how good he was, or notice a day he wears cologne and tell him how good he smells, just casually not making a big deal, and smile, my guy friends have told me that that is the # 1 way to get a guy to notice you is to smile at them alot, and appear happy and approachable.

eh..compliments are more for girls. The best way to meet a guy is to start a conversation with him. If he looks like a skater, just be like "do you skate?" then u can ask what kind of a board he has etc. Anoher good ice breaker is music. Ask him what bands he likes, and compare. good luck with your search!

A compliment to anyone be it someone you want a date with or not must be sincere. If I wanted to meet you and date you I would not go up to you and say "Nice Hairband" would I? You would laugh and shrug like he would and walk away. You need to do what every girl before you has done through the history of the world. Find out what interests this guy, makes him tick and what he does well. Once you know that you can then do "Saw your football game--nice pass." or something like that then slide in your second line "By the way, my name is Caroline call me."

Slip him a phone number and be done with it. It's faster than an oil change for a car but really to accurately compliment and get his attention you need to research what he is all about and show up places. Make yourself known but be subtle if seeing a game of his come up with some lame excuse people can buy for you being there including him until you get a fill of it and him.

Hmm. Well I'm a guy and that whole compliment thing might work. I usually don't get much except for my hair because its like an afro and you can stick pens in it and everything. Try the occasional 'Hah! Nice' if you see they do something interesting or out of the ordinary, or just trip.

As for compliments...You don't want to lie and stretch it out, like if a guy has a bad shirt on, go up and say: wow great shirt! That never works out. If they are wearing a nice shirt or shoes or w/e then say so. Don't compliment for the sake of conversation, if theres nothing worth it. Maybe a hairstyle they have? or even something they did/said. Whatever comes your way. Hope that helped and good luck.
