    It actually depends on the girl, some girls find the compliments awkward and annoying and others like the attention and admiration.

    Personally, I steer clear as soon as a guy starts giving a lot of compliments. I find them unnecessary (not to mention awkward because I'm just like "hehe ok"), if I look good I'll know that I look good, I don't need to be told (I'm really not vain, I promise lol) but that might just be because I'm a Hijabi...
    Haha I'd never just walk up to a stranger and compliment them, bit too awkward for me :lol: but I see what you mean.

    I never do it to hijabi's though, just respecting the fact they probably won't welcome that sort of male attention.

    Good on you, I'm glad people like you exist! Hijabis don't want attention

    Some people have a very low sense of worth and receiving a compliment can make them go dizzy with pleasure, so I would always say give out compliments if you see something worth complimenting.
    I try to now, without coming off as creepy/thirsty if I can :lol:

    Problem with compliments is you can only do it once or twice or people will misinterpret your intention especially when male complimenting female, although i assume the other way around as well. But sometimes people just deserve it
    It's good to give them though, it will either make someones day or they will ignore it so it costs the complimenter nothing but a breath.

    Do you mean online? If so then that's much harder without looking like a weirdo. I tend to avoid it unless people seem to need/want it at the time

    Avoid compliments at all costs, go for negs instead. Tell her something's wrong with her makeup. They spend hours in front of the mirror - girls are so insecure about their looks and they constantly look for validation from other people. So don't do it!

    Hi five my fellow hijabi
    It does get boring when you get compliments on the same thing over and over again. I mean, it's like "Do you really like that cuz I don't see nothing special about it?" I guess this cliché comes into play: "Beauty is in the eye of the beholder". I stay away from all that posting pics laa didaa; instagram and snapchat are just a waste of precious time. Like who gives a crap, no one wants to know how you look every second of your life. So YES , compliments do lose their effect eventually.

    I rarely compliment people on their looks.
    Tbh I would love a compliment as I've probably been called pretty (face to face) like 3 times in my life lol by people not family.

    I see what you mean. Hearing it once is nice, but multiple times gets tedious... And annoying if it's from the same person!
