    If you're going to do this just follow 2 simple rules:

    1. Be attractive.
    2. Don't be unattractive.

    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?
    Isn't this kinda how to break the ice

    Depends how you say it and partly on your body language and facial expression. It depends on your appearance as well, if you're not good looking then it probably won't work.

    In my respective viewpoint, I would find statements similar to this slightly creepy. But the main purpose why I would despise this statement is because I do not know that guy, and I do not know the his intentions behind this nor any acknowledgement of his personality. So, yeah... anyone with me on this idea?

    What word would you suggest instead then?
    Interesting, maybe? You have a better chance of success if you don't mention the girl's appearance at all imo.

    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?
    no hahaha i've been with my boyfriend for four years - there's no one else i would rather be with

    i don't look at other people as potential partners any more at all - just friends , so if we clicked it'd only ever be on a friendship level and if i thought he was interested in more i'd cut the contact immediately

    Oh right, I thought you meant you would've used the boyfriend thing as an excuse. Didn't think you actually had one haha. Fair enough then!

    maybe you are just asking the wrong girls? girls who get hit on all the time may think its creepy but they are probably used to being complimented constantly
    I don't think you can go wrong complementing a girl, as long as you are being sincere!

    It's no creepy per se, but I genuinely find things like that uncomfortable and a bit of invasion of personal space, but that just could because I'm really awkward
    I can only laugh at this bold bit you wrote it's ridiculous, a complement is not an invasion of personal space. Unless the complement is extremely sexual perhaps but this is a positive compliment being given. lol

    To be blatantly honest it depends entirely on if your hot.
    With that statement you are almost saying a woman's idea of being harassed depends on how good the person giving the complement looks. Which most of us guys already know, still when you think of this it's a bit sad at least for the unattractive person giving a complement to be thought of as a pest when he is just giving a friendly compliment.

    It is because it's unexpected. If I'm walking along, minding my own business and someone comes up like that it doesn't make me feel at ease
