Reply To: When to Give Validation
>I feel it’s so much more powerful if I just take the compliment and leave it there. Then, when the girl opens up to me compliment her only then much like you mentioned above.
Absolutely. When a woman compliments you or shows affection, you want to avoid mirroring her actions. It just makes you look weak. It makes you look like you succumb to social pressure to be nice. On top of that, if you do compliment her when she compliments you, she’ll think you’re being disingenuous.
Instead, you could respond with:
– oh my god, you’re so sweet
– oh my god, I’m blushing
– compliments will get you everywhere!
Or just give her a kiss. But in general, a thank you is fine, particularly if she does it a lot.
