In today’s world, people rarely open up to each other. The thought of baring one’s feelings in front of another person IS scary.

This compliment is probably one of the best, ever! Besides being a major confidence-booster, it makes the other person feel sought-after too. And who doesn’t want to feel that! You say this one particular sentence to someone you truly admire, and you’ll have a guide, friend and confidant for life!
