It's always nice to give someone a sincere and beneficial compliment. Especially one's girlfriend or wife loves to hear nice things, and it is one's duty to bestow compliments on one's loved ones.
First, make sure it is true. Don't tell an ugly person they are gorgeous.
Next, make sure you are being tactful. Don't tell a crying woman she is pretty...it's just weird.
And last, be pure. Have no ulterior motives or shady scheme.
As long as you just say something pleasant from your heart, and the person doesn't hate you, then the compliment may very well be a huge success.
By the way, I really enjoyed your question,
that was awesome Jon! ;-)
I agree with Cory. Be sincere when making a compliment and don't overdo it. If you tell a woman 5 times within a 15 minute time frame that she is beautiful then it gets to be a little weird. Less is more and sometimes one genuine compliment can make a person's day.
Like what's been already said, it's best to be honest when giving a compliment, but not over-the-top or too blunt. Make sure that the compliment is in context with the situation, or else it'll just be awkward. The best compliments are also the ones that are spontaneous because they are genuine and 'for the heck of it'--not because you are expecting something in return.
Always be true and sincere in whatever you choose, so at the end of the day , your heart will be happy
