London, April 14 (ANI): The best way to compliment a woman is to mention her weight loss, a new study has revealed.
According to the study of 2,000 men and women conducted by Dental Care Plus Implant Centres, ladies love it best when their men say they look thinner than usual.
Although 43 per cent of girls are obsessed with their weight, a further four in 10 are happiest when someone comments on their gorgeous smile.
Other compliments guaranteed to put men in the good books are those that focus on the way a woman smells, how nice her hair is, or what beautiful eyes she has.
But guys should avoid talking about how well a woman looks as she'll think they are saying she's fat.
And they should totally avoid mentioning she looks tired or under the weather.
Women are complex creatures, and men would be mistaken to think they couldn't go wrong with a compliment, the Daily Express quoted a spokesman for Dental Care Plus Implant Centres as saying.
Women appear to love any compliments which suggest they are beautiful, and have good features - such as fantastic natural teeth, lips, hair or legs.
In particular they want to appear thin to everyone around them, so commenting on weight loss is a sure fire way to score brownie points.
But you could get into hot water for saying that someone looks like they have eaten well, or that they look quite broad around the shoulder, the spokesman stated.
The study suggests women like it when men say a dress or colour really suits them, and a third love to be told they look gorgeous.
In contrast, men get into trouble if they make mention of weight gain - and a quarter of women take great insult to being told they look like their mum or dad.ther compliments that may anger women include, You're not as stupid as you look and You don't look as bad as I thought you would.
Only half of women actually take compliments well - and four in 10 prefer to have them from a partner than anyone else.
The spokesman noted: The study suggests women only get one compliment from their partners each day, and it is easy to understand why.
Most men probably live in fear of getting it wrong, and so don't bother trying to be nice. Men just need to think more about how to deliver a compliment, he added. (ANI)
