Let's dive right in!
17 Best Compliments For All
Maybe you want to let your girl know she's incredible. Perhaps you're driven to uplift, support, and inspire your students, clients, or the players you coach. Maybe you want to let a total stranger know that they matter. Just because. If you've ever asked yourself, "what are some good compliments?" then you're in the right place.
1. I bet you make babies smile.
This is one of the most awesome compliments you can give someone. You recognize the positivity that shines out of her. I mean, haven't you ever made a child smile? It's the best feeling ever.
2. You have impeccable manners.
Good manners are the ultimate form of courtesy and consideration of others. A simple compliment like this will tell her that you notice what she's doing, that she's caught your attention.
3. You've got all the right moves!
This is a great all-around affirmation, and it can cover anything from steps taken in a procedure to dance steps. When you praise how she moves, it will make her feel nice things inside that would probably make her think of you the next time she dances.
4. Your kindness is a balm to all who encounter it.
We totally encourage you to embrace your poetic side, especially in texts and writing. Saying this to her won't only make her smile, but it will also let her know that her kindness caught your attention.
5. You're even more beautiful on the inside than you are on the outside.
This is a great compliment to give to a girl. It will have a positive impact on her self-esteem. When many of us fear being seen only for what's on the surface, it is precious to let others know that you perceive what may go unspoken and unseen by others.
6. When you're not afraid to be yourself is when you're most incredible.
It helps when we all encourage each other to be our honest, authentic selves. Fear and insecurity can cloud any endeavor, and we can all benefit from affirming each other that we are enough. And when you use an adjective like "incredible," it will definitely bring a smile to her face.
7. If you were a box of crayons, you'd be the giant name-brand one with the built-in sharpener.
Try on some metaphorical humor to express your compliment words and produce a smile. Is it corny? Yes. But, when your main goal is to make her feel good, being corny doesn't have to be a bad thing, as long as you achieve the goal.
8. In high school, I bet you were voted "most likely to keep being awesome."
That's a funny all-around good compliment that says: "You're great now, and I bet you've been great since forever." It may even bring back a good memory from when she was a student. So either way, it will make her smile.
9. Babies and small animals probably love you.
The thing about babies and small animals is that they are symbolic of raw honesty and ultimate truth. When you bet that these tiny living things are drawn to her, it means her personality exudes sunshine. And everyone, especially babies and tiny animals, loves sunshine.
10. If cartoon bluebirds were real, a couple of 'em would be sitting on your shoulders singing right now.
The image of having birds on her shoulders, all shiny and cute, means that she's the leading lady in a light and fun animated movie. And you know what it means when they start singing, right? It means something good is about to happen.
11. You're more fun than a ball pit filled with candy.
Ball pits, candy, and Disney World are universal metaphors for fun and unfettered happiness. To compare her to these super fun things means that you enjoy her company a lot. Saying these to her also means that you like having her around because she's a lot of fun.
12. You always know how to find that silver lining.
Idioms for positivity never fail to add color and creativity to your words. There are very few people who can find positivity even in the darkest times. Finding someone who can make a bad thing good - that's perfection.
13. You're more fun than bubble wrap.
Metaphors as compliments are great for adding character to your compliment words. What other metaphors for fun can you think of? Waterslides? Ziplines? Ice cream cones? Whatever that may be, a good compliment giver can make the best metaphors work.
14. You have the courage of your convictions.
We love this one because it recognizes the value in another's honesty, authenticity, and integrity. Speaking our truth is hard. It will always be. We can all use all the support and encouragement we can get to keep being strong in our beliefs no matter how vulnerable we may feel when we fight for them, especially in the face of opposition.
15. You give the best hugs.
A release of oxytocins is not all that makes hugs good. When you're hugging the right person, it makes you feel warm and calm. When you tell her that she gives the best hugs, not only will you have given a sign that you like her, but you will also have given her a signal to hug you more often.
16. Your ability to recall random factoids at just the right times is impressive.
Everyone has a skill that may seem uninteresting to other people, but to the right person, that may very well be what impresses them and gets their attention. Recalling random factoids may be a nerdy thing to do, but when you point it out, she'll appreciate that her so-called nerdy skill is something that impressed you.
17. You have the best laugh.
Laughing is the simplest and most natural thing someone can do. Because of that, we often don't notice if there's anything different with our laugh. So when you say that she has the best laugh, it means you notice something different about it, that normally you wouldn't with other people.

15 Best Lines To Say To Compliment Girls
Letting your girl know you love her in every way imaginable is key to keeping your relationship dynamic and evolving. Compliments for girls can begin quite simply. To tell her she's beautiful is a no-brainer.
However, you'll want to level up as far as how you See her not just from your body, mind, and heart, but from the depths of your soul. Even the atheists out there who may or may not believe in "the soul" per se can benefit from creating good praises (or an Italian complimento) from the deepest place possible because this isn't at all just about affirming the other person in question or putting you in good favor with them.
In expanding the ways you appreciate and express your gratitude for a loved one, you are expanding the depth of your own self-awareness of what you find worthy and valuable. The more positivity you exude, the more positivity will find you.
18. You're that "Nothing" when people ask me what I'm thinking about.
We all say "nothing" when we really mean we are intently focused on that someone in our lives whose presence sometimes feels too vast for words. Sometimes, they never even really leave your mind. Thinking about them is a consistent process in your brain.
19. You're a gift to those around you.
What a great noun to assign to someone you like, right? A gift. A present! You love not only what she offers you but what she offers others. You are unselfish in your appreciation of her presence.
20. You’re perceptive.
You're letting her know that you know that she reads between the lines and that there are lines of communication between you two that are hidden from the world. Complimenting a woman's intelligence is always a good idea.
21. You're a brilliant listener.
Listening is highly underrated in this day and age. Few people actually listen with total presence. Let her know how much you appreciate her talent for this lost art. Add the word brilliant to let her know you know she's critically thinking about what she receives.
22. You are very good at seeing the best in people, even when everyone else sees the worst.
One who can turn water into wine and rocks into gold when everyone else is complaining about scarcity is a gift to the world indeed. This is a supportive thing to hear from another; remembering where this streak of compassion was seen can fuel a challenging day.
23. If I threw something at you with no warning, I bet you'd catch it.
You're saying that you see that she has the flexibility and ability to handle anything the world might throw at her. You're telling her that she can do a good job, no matter what crazy or bad thing is handed to you.
24. You embody all the best qualities of each Hogwarts house, rolled into one.
Although this may sound like just a cute, nerdy Potter reference, this one is actually quite powerful: You're saying she's a perfect balance of yin and yang, capable of deep empathy across any spectrum.
25. Talking to you is so refreshing. I'm happy that we can communicate like this all the time.
You're specifically saying that you appreciate the openness of communication that the two of you have established. You're letting her know you feel supported in your connection and encourage the same.
26. That is an excellent choice. I'm glad you picked that.
Actively supporting your girl's choices and other things she has active control over can go a lot further than complimenting static qualities like her height or eye color. Plus, when you compliment her taste, it implies that you would choose the same if you were to pick.
27. There's just something about you...
There comes a point where our love, appreciation, and gratitude for our partners become totally intangible and bigger than what fits into words. In these cases, it's the tone of your voice that conveys the fullness of your heart.
28. Talking to you is like a breath of fresh air.
I know we all have people in our lives that we'd like to stop talking to. They're overly annoying and talkative that sometimes you'd like them just to shut their mouths. But, when you find a girl who makes talking easy and light, it feels like everything fits. You won't even notice the time passing when the two of you get into a great topic.
29. You are a ray of sunshine on a rainy day.
Have you ever had one of those days when nothing seems to go your way? If you have, I know you look for something that can lift your spirits just a little. She has also felt this way a least once in her life, so when you tell her that she's something you're looking for when you're having a bad day, she'll know that you value her a lot.
30. I bet you sweat glitter.
There are a lot of ways to compliment someone. When you run out of kind words, you can try the funny route. I know it's a little weird, but when she laughs from this, she's going to remember this line for a long time.
31. Has anyone ever told you that you have great posture?
Everyone knows that the world holds women to a higher standard. They always have to look their best, do their best in all aspects of their lives and still show up to everything and give 100%. When you make comments about something she's expected to have, but she never really notices, you're in for a great smile.
