Girls, would you ever tell a man he is handsome/attractive if you weren't going out? Watch

    I'd tell them in a matter-of-fact way that they were decent-looking if they seemed to be a bit down on themselves, but I wouldn't want to go over the top for fear of giving them the wrong impression. Also nobody needs their ego stroking too much!

      I'd tell them they were attractive if they clearly needed a confidence boost. Say, they'd come to me about feeling ugly or not being able to get a gf, I'd tell him I thought he was attractive. I wouldn't say it for the sake of saying it though.

      However, I would tell my female friends if I thought someone was rather yummy.
      As a bloke with low self-esteem, it helps me feel good about myself if I'm told. Also, because of my low self-esteem, if I like someone, I find it hard to tell them, so my only chance is if she likes me.

      EDIT: I didn't mean to sound like I've a massive ego in the first paragraph - I meant that because I don't ever feel particularly attractive, it's nice to hear when a girl tells me I am.

      Nah, it's more 'I won't go out with you because I have a boyfriend/you're far away/you're not very good socially and I'd find it irritating to be with you, but you are attractive and about passable as a friend, so I don't have to talk to you more than once in a while'.
