I have a friend that always seems to know when to tell a woman that shes beautiful and it scores him major points. I, myself, never seem to get the timing down and its been hit or miss, more often miss. Is there a certain criteria to know when or should I just say it when I feel like it?

Surprisingly, this is a rather hard question to answer.

There are certain factors involved in telling a woman shes beautiful that can both help you or hinder you.

Ive used the Youre beautiful line as a compliment opener in the past, with mixed results.

When done wrong, you can shoot yourself in the foot.

Seducing a woman has a great deal to do with controlling the dynamic of the interaction you have.

Im a strong advocate of something I like to call active disinterest when it comes to approaching a woman.

When you approach a woman with a youre beautiful line, you run the risk of displaying active interest.

However, I know what you mean when you ask if there is a certain criteria to be followed when telling a woman shes beautiful.

You shouldnt use this compliment as an opener unless youre extremely advanced and experienced at approaching women.

You can use this opener once youve established attraction with the woman youre talking to.

If you do this before attraction is properly established… well, youre going to tip your hand too soon.

See, extremely hot women hear theyre beautiful all the time. They know theyre beautiful.

This doesnt mean they dont like being TOLD their beautiful. But the compliment loses a lot of its impact…

When someone youre attracted to gives you a compliment, it will make you feel good.

In fact, it will most likely increase your attraction to them.

Telling a woman shes beautiful after you have gotten her attracted to you is a way of signaling shes met your criteria for attraction as well.

Your friend, who seems to know when hes properly attracted the girl, instinctually knows this.

So what you need to do is realize when the woman is attracted to you before you give her a compliment like this.

Look at what signs shes giving you. Pay attention to what shes doing with her arms, her legs, her eyes, etc.

This is the best way to know when shes ready to start hearing nice compliments from you.

Heaping too much praise on a girl can actually have an adverse effect, because too much of it loses its meaning.

If you display too much attraction for a woman, it will turn her off (at least in the courting stage).

You need to walk that fine line and continue to flirt with her, but not tip your hand completely until the time is right.
