Helpful Hints ~ Compliments

When you are complimenting someone on their appearance, especially a woman, it might sound a little more sincere if you keep the obvious surprise out of your voice whilst saying  "Do you ever look pretty!"

Yeah, like it's the first time in your life you were out and about looking almost human. LOL

Yup. That's exactly what that tone implies. "I never knew you could look mildly attractive!??! Good for you."

I ran into a woman twice at a grocery store. The first time I saw her she said, "Belle, you look so tired." I must have looked like hell. The second time she said, "Belle, you look so great, what have you done to yourslef." As far as I knew, nothing.

Nope, it wasn't the same day, I would say it was a few months apart. I hope I don't run into her again as I haven't aged gracefully.
