    This is the sort of thing I'd do if I saw a woman who looked like they needed a bit of cheering up or a confidence boost. I wouldn't do it for any personal gain or because I wanted them to be my girlfriend really.

    This has actually happened to me *cringe*. It seemed really rehearsed and it just made me feel awkward tbh. I also had a boyfriend at the time, but even if I didn't I doubt I would have felt differently. It was flattering but I did get the impression that particular guy had already used the same line on about 5 other girls before me!

    Need to give this a shot when uni starts again haha. I guess there will be a few rejections, but if I find someone special it'll be worth it!

    What do you mean "why would you say this?". Because you find her attractive and want to get to know her more.
    Why can't you say she is attractive instead of beautiful? 'Beautiful' is too intimate, you can get the same compliment across with less of a risk of coming across creepy or too forward with the word 'attractive'.

    I can't really remember, it was about 5 years ago. He wasn't repulsive, seemed a bit 'chavvy' to me at the time.

    It's sweet, especially if the girl thinks you're being genuine.
    But honestly most girls would hear that and assume you expect them to sleep with you at some point and avoid you like the plague...depending on the girl ofc :')

    Well it was just an example and not set in stone haha. I guess "beautiful" works better in clubs where it's more intimate?

    that's because us men have to take 100's of rejections before finding the one. All a girl has to do is go upto one guy and he's hers.

    Yeah, but it's the details that count, haha. No 'beautiful' doesn't work better in clubs. Club environments are too carnal and salacious, 'beautiful' just comes across creepy in that forum, especially considering how predatory a lot of men can come across/are in those types of settings. It just looks like you have ulterior motive, creepy motive. Also, it is a bit intrusive with its forwardness. Save beautiful for intimate moments when you actually know the person. Opening lines should be controlled, so stay with distant, less emotionally engaging words like 'attractive'.

    Though, your best bet would be to abandon all of this sappy, risky and cringe-y **** and go for funny.

    If a guy was to walk up to you and say something like, "Hey, I thought you were really beautiful and wanted to say hi", would you find it creepy? Would they have a chance with you?
    yes it is creepy, if you want to say hi then you just go and say hi and make conversation, not say that lol.

    i'd appreciate it , and i'd be willing to talk to them etc , but i'd also be clear i have a boyfriend because the problem with that kind of approach is that it sounds like they're after you sexually

    so yeah , i'd make it clear i'm not interested like that

    Aw, that's a shame. Is there anything he could possibly do to change your mind? What if he was incredibly attractive and your personalities instantly clicked?
