You’d think a compliment would make a woman’s day. Well, it would, only if you do it just right! Yes, compliments too are tricky sometimes - like it or not, you have to think them through. One wrong sentence, and BOOM! These 10 things - which pretty much all of us have heard - DEFINITELY do not make us feel special! 

1. I love the fact that you're so easy to please.


Uh, are you saying I have no standards?

2. Wow! That dress makes you look so slim.


Are you calling me otherwise-fat?

3. You’re as pretty as my ex-girlfriend.


You did NOT just say that!

4. You’re way cooler than your girlfriends.


Thanks for telling me that you think the people I value are boring.

5. Nice ass!


Hey, man. That's not a compliment - that's verbal harassment.

That’s because I think my Prince Charming got drunk and passed out on his way over. :-)
