- Giving compliments on a date at times leaves a bad taste in the mouth
- This happens when the compliment causes unintended pun on the receiver
The art of complimenting takes dating a long way, but it is confusing at the same time as you may want to say the right thing to your date.
Here are the top five things you should never say on the first date:
You have a big appetite
It does not matter if she can eat two medium pizzas with one litre soda all by herself. This compliment makes her think she is eating too much far beyond your budget.
You look hot.
No matter how attractive her lingerie is, this compliment makes her feel like a slut who is ahead of herself. Simply tell her she looks gorgeous or amazing.
You make me think about my mum.
Telling a lady she makes you think of your mother is to tell her “Am okay if you put me in the friend-zone.” No lady wants to be compared to your mother.
You look good with make-up.
This compliment means the exact opposite; she looks awful without make up and she should never show up without it.
You are funny.
It does not matter if she makes you laugh till your ribs hurt, this compliment gets you straight into the friend-zone.
Enjoy the jokes without complimenting none of it.
The best way to be good with compliments is noting the small things she does and exaggerating. For example, “Claire, You make me feel like the luckiest man in the world.”
