The Art Of The Com­pli­ment

CLEO (Malaysia) - - SMART REPORT -

“Give a com­pli­ment. But never com­pli­ment her hair or say she has beau­ti­ful eyes – that’s too ob­vi­ous and clichéd. Def­i­nitely never com­pli­ment her shirt/top or neck­lace; she’ll in­stantly think you’re check­ing out her knock­ers. Avoid rings, they all have mean­ings. A bracelet or watch is the only safe bet.”

De­coded: You spot a cute guy in a bar, start talk­ing and all he can say is, “Nice watch”. You think, “Am I even wear­ing a watch?!” Now you know it’s be­cause his buddy has told him to go with the safe bet. Dr McMillan says it sounds like Rob’s try­ing to find some­thing nice to say about a woman with­out putting his foot in his mouth. “But the prob­lem for women is that Rob’s ad­vice may be too good,” she warns. “It could al­low a guy to sound

sin­cere when he may not be.”
