    If you find someone very attractive, is it alright to tell the person he or she is very attractive?

    It depends on your location and if she is with someone. Definitely not at work. That will get you fired as sexual harassment.

    If you say it in a polite way there is nothing wrong with telling someone. Always remember what JThomas42 said though! You don't want to get fired for telling someone at work.

    Most of the time when you tell a person that, it goes to their head and can make them act snobby. Also telling someone that who already knows only makes them act more stuck up. I don't really tell people that unless it's someone I don't now and I will never see again.

    It depends on if you can find a good situation to say it. If you're talking to someone about the weather and all of a sudden you blurt out "I just wanted you to know I find you really attractive" they're probably going to freak out and run away.

    I always try to find ways to compliment people, whether they are wearing their hair particularly nice, if their clothes work well for their body type, or some people just have days where they look extra attractive.

    I have a tendency to be very blunt so if a friend introduces me to someone I don't have a problem telling them I think they are attractive. I tend to do this more to women than men because I have a boyfriend, but everybody deserves a compliment.

      I like your honest approach. I think it's true too not to say it in a jarring way, something jarring always throws people off. I also compliment people on hair, clothes, etc. Yes,everyone deserves a compliment. Some are gracious about it, some not.

    Yes. I feel expressing your feelings is important. Telling a person that you find them attractive, not only makes them feel good, but opens the door to being able to openly express any feeling that each person has. 

    If the person you told the comment to may feel comfortable enough to express their opinion as well, which may make you feel good as well.

      I absolutely agree. It is good to feel free to be honest, especially when the intent is good.

    Definitely OK...a simple nice comment can bring a smile to someone else and cheer up his/her day!

      Absolutely. Nothing wrong with that!

    Flattery is nice.  I don't know anyone that doesn't like it.  Just be ready for the reply.  If you don't know the person, you don't know what their reaction will be.  Maybe they're shy and will feel uncomfortable, but nobody can make you feel uncomfortable except yourself, so that's what I always keep in mind.  Just remember you will never please everyone anyway and a compliment is a positive remark.

      I like that answer very much. I don't think I could have said it better myself.
