How to Give Funny Compliments
How you use humorous compliments is as important as the compliments you use. Follow these tips to make every compliment a win.
1) Don't Overdo It
If you're constantly complimenting someone, those words are going to lose their power. Think about the boy who cried wolf. While there's nothing wrong with being a guy who gives out a lot of compliments, it's important that your words are meaningful if you really want to make an impact on someone's day.
2) Choose Wisely
Try to select compliments that are going to really mean something to the person receiving them. For example, if they're feeling down because they think look ugly, you could use a compliment about her being beautiful. Choose the right compliment for the individual person/situation for the best results.
3) Be Random
At the same time, you don't always need a reason to give a compliment. Sometimes the best compliments are the ones that come out of nowhere.
4) Diversify Your Compliments
If you give one person a compliment, don't use the same one with someone else. People like to know that you thought about them specifically, and if they find out you're saying the same thing to other people, your compliments are going to lose their meaning.
5) Be Confident
Complimenting someone can actually be a little scary. Try not to let your nerves get the best of you. You're doing something kind, so own it. Plus, the more you do it, the easier it gets.
