Finally you will hear the magic words! She thought her boyfriend would say "I love her" but heard "Are you beautiful?" Was the conversation in that awkward silence while the boy waited for an answer? You have to be careful not to appear arrogant, but you also don't want to exude little confidence, right? It is also not possible to simply not respond, as ignoring the compliment is the same as responding to something wrong. Next time you hear a compliment like that, follow the tips below!
Part 1 of 2: Showing Gratitude
Step 1. Give Thanks
Accept the compliment, but don't use the moment to brag about how beautiful you are. This way you will demonstrate confidence without appearing arrogant.
Step 2. Show you care
It's always a good idea to make it clear that praise has value within your relationship, so say something like "That's great to hear" followed by a hug and a kiss.
Step 3. Ask a casual rhetorical question
Saying something like "Own, do you really think that?" or "Really?" helps you get the right impression without showing arrogance. It's a good idea to complete the question with a casual phrase like "You're not bad either" or "I love you" so he doesn't feel pressured to answer. In the end, you'll say thank you and return the compliment: do you want something better?
Step 4. Make eye contact
Look into the cat's eye as you receive the compliment and focus well so he knows you're listening and that he liked what he heard. Don't run away from his gaze, or you'll look uninterested.
Step 5. Keep your voice positive
It's important to sound like the compliment made you happy, not uncomfortable. Respond in a happy voice and rock!
Step 6. Take the time to flirt
It's not necessary to return the compliment, but if the time calls for it, it might be a good idea to make it clear that you love the guy. A simple "Thanks, hottie" or "I was also thinking how beautiful you are" should do the trick.
Part 2 of 2: Acting politely
Step 1. Be careful not to deny the compliment
When you say things like "Stop being silly," you show a lack of confidence and seem to be begging for attention. The guy certainly thinks you're beautiful, so take the compliment.
Step 2. Don't protest or pretend the compliment never existed
If you respond with something like "You're a cutie…" and quickly change the subject, the guy will feel like he's not pleased and probably won't praise you anymore.
Step 3. Try not to sound arrogant
Reply "I know!" or "I'm really beautiful" is not a good idea either. If you don't say thank you for the compliment, you're going to look very full of yourself. Confidence is a great trait, but no one likes a stuck-up person.
Step 4. Don't try to get more compliments
Enjoy that you've already been praised and don't say something like "Oh yeah? What do you like about me?" The guy will feel pressured to praise you more, and if you don't, you'll be hurt. Not worth it.
Step 5. Don't overdo it when you return compliments
Just because you get a nice-to-hear comment doesn't mean you have to give it back in kind. If you feel like it, try saying something like "Oh, you're not all bad either"; use a little good humor, without overdoing it or trying to distract yourself.
