I agree with One Thousand. There isn't anything necessarily wrong with complimenting a woman's appearance. Direct game has more to do with body language and timing. Saying something like "Wow your gorgeous" sounds a bit like you just met a celebrity and are putting her on a pedestal. If you want to do it in a way that comes across as a confident man without doing too much pedestal stuff (now this may sound counter intuitive to most pickup guys but this is direct game not indirect) say " Excuse me. I wanted to say..... that I think you're attractive....... and have a great style" (Try to pick something specific about her style) " .......I just had to meet you, Hi I'm ____." This is as direct as it gets. But your body language and tone are more important hear. Chest out, shoulders back, and slow movement. Speak slow and pronounced. Throw in some pauses while your at it. It builds a bit of suspense and doesn't come across like your afraid of wasting her time. Also end each sentence on a low note so it doesn't sound like a question or that your tone is revealing that you are not comfortable with what your saying. Practice in the mirror and you will be fine.
