If you see a stranger and think they’re attractive, should you tell them?

Think about you, you’ll probably never see this stranger again. Unless you see this stranger often or something.

[@1452,ImRileyTheDog] seems a little random lol
ImRileyTheDog · 18-21, F
[@868864,HannahSky] Yeah it can

Just be like “I just gotta say this or tell you this, you’re a very attractive or good looking man”

Then they say thanks, maybe a little convo, and carry on with each of your days
HannahSky · F
[@1452,ImRileyTheDog] lol ok I'll be on the lookout
DropTopDig · M
No, let bygones be bygones.
ImRileyTheDog · 18-21, F
[@1185254,DropTopDig] But you can make up their day
DropTopDig · M
[@1452,ImRileyTheDog] You think I'd make your day with a compliment? You'd probably lyao at me.
ImRileyTheDog · 18-21, F
[@1185254,DropTopDig] It’s happened to me on multiple occasions and makes me smile
Adamski24 · 36-40, M
Yes, it could make a bad day better
ImRileyTheDog · 18-21, F
[@955346,Adamski24] Exactly my thought
Only if they're wearing a ring and their SO is next to them
ImRileyTheDog · 18-21, F
[@776292,BeefySenpie] 😳

ImRileyTheDog · 18-21, F
[@849619,SkeetSkeet] Nooo don’t hide yourself
SkeetSkeet · 90-99, F
[@1452,ImRileyTheDog] last time that happened it was because he wouldn't stop staring at me hahah so I had to hide I was getting nervous 💗
ImRileyTheDog · 18-21, F
[@849619,SkeetSkeet] Aww well that’s creepy
JustcallmeNameless · 31-35, FVIP
I don't talk to strangers.

A lot of strange people. But not strangers.
MilitantIrishman · 26-30, M
Probably wouldn't go well but I've never been guilty of making smart decisions
MilitantIrishman · 26-30, M
[@1452,ImRileyTheDog] of course 😂
I mean, who could imagine me saying anything inappropriate? 😏

Yeah I'll give them a quick history lesson while I'm trying to flirt with them 😂😂
ImRileyTheDog · 18-21, F
[@8731,MilitantIrishman] You watch your mouth sir🤭

You know chicks love American history 😂
MilitantIrishman · 26-30, M
[@1452,ImRileyTheDog] I'm a saint 😇 I would never say anything even slightly inappropriate 😏
SweetMae · 61-69, F
I have done that. 😏 A man keep turning around looking at me. So I said you know you are handsome.
ImRileyTheDog · 18-21, F
[@10109,SweetMae] Yes! It can make someone day and even a new friendship!
[c=004A59]Occasionally, I'll compliment another woman on her jewelry or a coat or shoes when I'm out shopping. Other women frequently do the same to me.

I never see any attractive men around here. If I did, I doubt I'd say anything to them. It doesn't feel right to me to approach a strange man.[/c]
ImRileyTheDog · 18-21, F
[@1217106,Vampyr] Yeah I understand, but I see it as making someone day better
[@1452,ImRileyTheDog] [c=004A59]I'm very wary of men. Too many bad life experiences.[/c]
LvChris · 41-45, M
Yes, of course. Telling strangers they're attractive always works out well for aging white guys.
ImRileyTheDog · 18-21, F
[@335805,LvChris] Thats the target audience
I do

Just my nature

I figure that "appreciated beauty" is joy and joy is good

And if I say nothing, it is a sin
ImRileyTheDog · 18-21, F
[@6757,questionWeaver] 😄
Tyr77 · 41-45, M
Only if you're of a comparable level of attractiveness, or else it's weird.
checkoutanytime · 41-45, M
That is the hardest part about strangers.
ZenPearl · F
I might look at them and smile, but that's it.
ImRileyTheDog · 18-21, F
[@674752,ZenPearl] Awww it’s okay, admire from a distance but don’t be creepy🤭
ZenPearl · F
[@1452,ImRileyTheDog] 🤣

PatheticZombieClown · 46-50, M
Been punched straight on the face for yeah...
Doing it right is the important part

NEVER compliment and wait around for a response

Share and get back to what you were doing
Nayla · 51-55, F
DDonde · 31-35, M
No, I notice and then avoid them.
BackyardShaman · 61-69, M
An appropriate smile goes a long way
ImRileyTheDog · 18-21, F
[@1062793,BackyardShaman] I think a compliment can go longer
BackyardShaman · 61-69, M
For sure, I’m thinking it depends on the situation and time.[@1452,ImRileyTheDog]
PerfectionOfTheHeart · 41-45, F
I’m not sure if it should be a thing because attractive people kind of already have an idea they’re appealing, but it doesn’t stop me from letting them know they’re doing the whole owning attractiveness thing right…most times without saying a single word.

I’m kidding of course. I just wink with both eyes and high-five them with a random “Tuesday. Amirite?”
Ambroseguy80 · 51-55, M
I generally spread the sunshine and tell them they’re sexy or attractive or whatever. No wonder they look at me like I’m creepy. 😀
Iamonfire666 · 31-35, F
I just smile at them.
GunFinger · 41-45, F
I don't have the courage to tell them. I just bite my lip and play with my hair.🤤
ImRileyTheDog · 18-21, F
[@352154,GunFinger] Hehe that will send the right message🙈🙊
GunFinger · 41-45, F
[@1452,ImRileyTheDog] I never have any intentions. I act weird towards cute people. Lol
ImRileyTheDog · 18-21, F
[@352154,GunFinger] Honestly me too. I act different around attractive people or someone I find interesting for some reason.
I'd b 2 embarrassed 😚
Rolexeo · 26-30, M
No, you should stare them down and rub your nipples. Telling them is far too direct. You don't want to scare them off, subtlety is key here
cycleman · 56-60, M
I have done it a few times as I cycled past her. Never saw her reaction. ☺️
CookieCrumbs · 41-45, F
I’ve done that to both men and women.
Though in a less direct manner…
I would compliment what they’re wearing or their nice hairstyle, or their smile.

I wouldn’t want to put them in an awkward position, so I would usually just say it and walk away.
ZenPearl · F
[@660851,CookieCrumbs] I don't even say anything. I just shmile and keep walking.
CookieCrumbs · 41-45, F
I won’t walk up to them to say it.
Only if they are within accessible
proximity… and if we are both aware of each other’s presence jn that area.

Usually it would be places like coffeeshops, hotel lobbies, or grocery stores. Quick compliment, smile and bye.
WandererTony · 51-55, M
[@660851,CookieCrumbs] Here its not considered proper to talk to strangers, especially ladies if you are a male. Its equivalent to eve teasing!
I would sometimes make an admiring look and pass on.
I’m not the type to do that. Well it probably depends on the place and time.
Maleficent · F
I've had strangers do that to me didn't bother me at all. I'm not bashful so yes I would tell them.
Roadsterrider · 51-55, M
For me, it would depend on the situation, not at work, not as a come on. If I see someone who is attractive, I say that they look nice or comment on clothing. A compliment is okay. I try not to linger after the comment, just say it and walk away.
sarabee1995 · 26-30, F
I've done that.
ImRileyTheDog · 18-21, F
[@1360,sarabee1995] Me too and received it
Rutterman · 41-45, M
No, I wouldn't. I'm not too keen on talking to strangers, attractive or not.
ImRileyTheDog · 18-21, F
[@121363,Rutterman] But everyone is a stranger till you get to know them
Rutterman · 41-45, M
[@1452,ImRileyTheDog] True enough, but I prefer to be around someone for a while before I attempt to get to know them.
tallpowerhouseblonde · 31-35, F
I have complimented gorgeous guys and beautiful women and I have received many compliments,accepting then with a polite thank you.
