It’s been a really interesting week. I’ve spent time with some of the most amazing men and women, and I’ve also had some of the most bizarre encounters with men and women. In both the best and worst social situations, I have started to realize the power of a fucking awesome compliment. The one thing I’ve learned is that when people are willing to open themselves up and give honest compliments with absolutely no expectation of getting anything in return, they often get exactly what they wanted.
What a concept, I know.
So as fall settles in and we start the hunt for someone to keep us warm on those long wintery Maine nights, consider using a great compliment at the end of an interesting conversation instead of a pick-up line. Or, if you are in a relationship that needs a little reboot, slide one of these compliments into conversation and reignite some Hugh-Grant-style passion.
