50 Amazing Compliments For Women That Really Work

Are your relationships with women stiff and cold but you don’t know why?

It doesn’t matter if you’re texting each other or having face-to-face conversations. Adding a little bit of sweetness and sparking joy on their face with a few good words will change the mood.

Compliments can do magic if they’re honest and appropriate. However, most get caught in awkward silence and either keep the conversation too serious or come up with a tasteless compliment. This mainly happens because many don’t have clear ideas on to base their compliments.

So we’re getting right into this matter. After reading our findings you’ll never be left wordless again. 

How to Compliment a Woman?

Brushing off the tension between the two and making her smile bonds you more with each other. But before starting with our list of compliments let’s go over five main things you can compliment women on.

  1. Focus on what she likes about herself. Throwing general compliments for things she might not like could turn around on you. Rather find what she values about herself and mention it to her. She’ll feel special if you emphasize the same traits she is proud of.
  1. Relate to her work or struggles. If she works overtime in a demanding job, having you value her hard work makes her feel loved. Or maybe she is struggling to solve a problem or support a friend. Your compliments will boost her self-confidence. 
  1. Notice the traits she appreciates in people. Keep in mind what she considers a precious trait when speaking about others or you. Maybe she’s shy herself but has a strong respect for people who speak what’s on their minds. Compliment her when she shows boldness.
  1. Touch on her personality traits. Personality makes her unique. The way she clothes, talks, smiles, or even walks are simple details that make her who she is. If you show that you’ve actually paid attention to these, it will connect you more with each other.
  1. Acknowledge her accomplishments.  Maybe she’s completed a course, graduated on a tough subject, or finished a project she fancied for a long time. The second thing that is more satisfying about hitting personal goals is having people appreciate your work.

These are some fundamental things to keep in mind when making compliments to women. The main characteristics all good compliments share are care and attention to small details.

Simple and short compliments that you give little to no importance may mean the world to the girl you love. Especially if you don’t speak much and let silence dominate the daily conversations with her.

Also, a few compliments at the top of your fingers are useful when you’re having a conversation with someone you’ve just met. So without further ado let’s start with our list of compliments:

Being ordinary is what scares us. Telling her how grateful you feel for having her besides you will make her feel special and appreciated. Use it whenever she does a favor to you or even out of nowhere.

Trust is a determinant in a relationship. If you consider her trustworthy she'll be more reliable, loving, and proud to be beside you. Use it whenever she does a favor or assists you in accomplishing something.

Everyone has flaws. It’s inevitable. Having someone who appreciates us the way we are, together with these flaws, relieves us from insecurities, and increases confidence and self-love.

Crossing paths with someone is simply a matter of probability. It can either be just a casual encounter or transform into something more. Use this compliment at the beginning of a relationship so she understands that’s not the former.

Creativity is rare but most creative people who put in so much work to come up with new ideas are often not recognized. Use this compliment whenever she does something creative to inspire her to keep being herself.  

13. You are enough

Use this compliment in times of doubt. Nearly all of us doubt whether we’re doing enough in our professional or personal life. Reminding her that she is, will shoo those doubts away.

15. You are perfect

Has she lost her confidence because she failed in her recent endeavors and now she’s doubting herself? Or maybe she is too caught up in her flaws. Cheer her up with this compliment no matter the case.

16. You have a way with words

Telling your woman that she has a way with words makes her value her communication skills more. Use this compliment when she explains thoroughly something complicated or convinces someone for good.

37. You should be thanked more often. So thank you!

Often we forget to be grateful for what we have or what others do for us. Just because you’re lovers it doesn’t mean that this formal expression has no place in your conversations. Appreciate her for being an ideal partner with this underrated expression.

38. Thank you for being you

The world is so harsh at times that we have to suppress our true selves. This way we don’t know if that side of us is ugly or beautiful and we show it only to those who love. Reassure her that her true self is indeed beautiful and that you’re grateful to be one of the few to see it.

39. Everything would be better if more people were like you!

Comparisons. This is another beautiful expression that is bound to melt her heart. Don’t be afraid to be a little poetic sometimes as those who make such compliments are rare. In a world with billions of songs let your girl understand that she is the perfect music that your ears need.

Still walking on the lines of the previous compliment. Artists who write books or songs do it for someone dear or special. Let her know that she is an inspiring person that deserves the most beautiful dedication.

Is she feeling too ordinary lately? Tell her that you don’t have to be making love for her to be amazing. Bring this compliment up when she makes witty choices or gifts you something.

44. Being around you is like a happy little vacation

Time spent with someone we love flows so fast to notice. Even if you’re working, it won’t feel like work when you’re together. Use this compliment to show her that whenever you’re together it feels like being on vacation. 

45. Just thinking about you brings a smile to my face

Sometimes we tend to think that maybe the other person loves us for the presence of our physical interaction. Tell her that it’s not like this, and simply just the thought of her makes you happy. She’ll feel special.
