If you have to compliment someone on their appearance, make sure you’re on the same attractiveness plane as the person you’re complimenting.
Okay, I’m just gonna say it. If an attractive person says another attractive person is attractive, it seems a lot more earnest and honest than if some uggo says the same. By the same token, if a very attractive person says that an uggo is attractive, it sounds all pandery and ridiculous.
It’s like when a person with the IQ of a potato comments on how brilliant someone is because they were able to count out change at the supermarket. *eye roll* Clearly, Potato Man has a low threshold for being impressed by intelligence.
The take home message here, kids, is to make sure you’re not insulting someone by complimenting their attractiveness. Thanks.
