    Default compliments

    Alright I pretty sure this is a dumb question but when a girl compliments you without saying a word to her that is an ioi right? How would any of you work this situation because I do happen to get complimented on my eyes by women all the time. Any suggestions would be great!

    Give her a genuine thank you. Yeah, this is not what you usually hear on a PUA forum, but it is a natural thing to do. Be appreciative for her compliment.

    Cool that's what I did. I'm just looking for a way to flip it into a pick up. I thought about saying after the thank you something along the lines of we haven't even went out yet and your already giving me compliments!

    It's absolutely an ioi. Rarely would you ever want to say more than "Thank you," to a compliment (i.e. don't explain you hear it all the time, or that you hear it at all ever; don't self-deprecate). This is the "norm" for you, and the you can do the polite thing in return.

    Don't feel compelled to compliment in return. Give her another opportunity to continue the conversation with you on her own. Possibly, "I have my father's eyes," to suggest a dhv lineage of good looks. Don't break eye contact and wait for her to respond.

    Then maybe, "Would you like to touch them?"

    I hear some puas say they compliment constantly. Don't go "Omg you are so beautiful". That will freak them out as well as get old. But, a daily reminder is what I heard works. Who knows. lol

    Default Re: compliments

    if a girl says you have nice eyes. she wants your cock. end of story. or she at least just thinks your hot. both are positives. unless she has a boyfriend or something else aka complications. think of her as shooting fish in a barrell. you wont have to do much to hook up with. and not much more to keep her. except have fun with her and not break her trust.

    This new girl that works at Starbucks gave me the following compliment;
    "I really like your shark tooth neckless"

    I responded with a: "oh thanks" and smiled at her.

    I then started a short conversation asking her if she was new and still in training. I told her I usually visit this Starbucks daily, then she said: "Oh I will try to remember your name"

    It's probably impossible for you guys to tell me, but is she just being nice and that's it, or was she into me. I have to say I did my hair and was dressed nicely that day. But if she would tell me she was just being nice, that would totally make sense too. Especially since she had a big smile to all the customers she talked to. Sometimes it's hard to tell the difference, especially in a work situation when you don't have much time to talk...

    Charm,

    I happened to get complimented on my eyes quite often as well. Here's a couple basic examples of how to turn a woman's compliment into a potential pickup:

    "Aw Thank You! You're pretty cute too, we'd have adorable kids"..."are you artistic? Okay good then you'll be helping them with their kindergarden homework because I'm horrible I only draw stick figures"..."What else are you good at?"...

    See where this can go? You're returning the compliment in a casual way then seasoning it with some humor and a bit of role playing. She's gonna play along if you're a fun guy. Then you transition and advance the conversation with a question about herself. The goal here is to either A: pinpoint a common interest that you can use to pitch the next meetup. Or B: take advantage of the fact that she's into you, and that the context of virtually any fun banter can be turned into something playfully sexual.

    If she complimented you, and she is engaged with you in fun dialogue...She's already closed herself My Man. Try developing a quick, organic sense of conversation that is always progressing toward the future and the phone number is a foregone conclusion. I'll often get to this point in an interaction where I know she wants my number before we even exchange first names. Most of this in particular is reading the subtle body language associated with her initial compliment (which Steel-O, may be the best way to determine if an employee is being Nice, or is actually interested in you).

    One more short joke that I use as a default when a woman compliments my eyes is:
    "Do you wanna know what the secret is? ...Mac Makeup. You laugh but its true. Its the only one that doesn't make me break out"

    This one fits my sarcastic and somewhat dry sense of humor, and they LOVE it. Any sort of compliment makes way for great banter. Just be sure you transition and advance the conversation as quickly as possible and you can turn it into a pickup.
