20 Compliments for girls: An expert list to show her how you feel

Asking a girl out often starts with a compliment. This list was made for those struggling to come up with honest, sincere compliments without coming on too strong or appearing too forward.

Making someone feel good about themselves is a genuine and easy way to show them your interest. Compliments don’t have to be cheesy or exaggerated, and they’re definitely not the same as pick-up lines. Their purpose is to make the girl you like feel special and appreciated no matter what stage you’re at in your relationship.

Remember, the goal is not to make her fall in love with you with a few compliments, so you shouldn’t aim for that. Compliments for girls can be used as subtle and natural additions to a conversation, especially on first dates. If the moment feels right, the perfect compliment can determine the vibe of your whole date. But even if you’re already in a relationship, a sweet, meaningful compliment can make your girlfriend’s day.

So, here are 20 compliments for girls, brought to you by our Match experts:
