Wanting to be something does not make it so. You're not only asshole, you're creepy asshole who for some reason can't understand that others could not care for what you deem nice.

I'd never do that. What I would do is smile at them. I've found that genuine smiles are almost never misunderstood. I smile at everybody. (Except cops and judges. They don't like smiles. Trust me, I know.) Oh an don't let your smile degenerate into a leer. Those also are seldom misunderstood.

You're not only asshole

No I'm not creepy, I'm shy so for me to even talk to a girl is a stretch but call me whatever you may so you can feel better about yourself but I know what and who I am.

RE: Psychology of guns
I agree with Jennybee. As a woman, unless you're female or a good friend, I don't appreciate any comments about my looks, regardless of how innocuous. It immediately puts me on the defensive, (or even on the offensive, if you're really dickish ).

The best tactic a guy could take would be to ask for help, in a polite, non-threatening way (ask for directions, ask for an opinion on a product in a supermarket, etc.).
See the person as a person first, and a woman second (hard for some guys, I know)
Appeal to the person's intelligence and willingness to help others.

'Course I hear that's what psychopaths do, so YMMV.

Or you can be out walking a friendly dog. That always works for me.

Your faith is not evidence, your opinion is not fact, and your bias is not wisdom

You're not creepy? If you say so. But I care not, talk to strangers however often you wish, just don't be surprised that it would not be to everyone liking.

Also congratulations on thinking that whoever does not agree with your saying what is nice being asshole.

Common courtesy.


I have no idea. I'll never do such thing.


For me possibility of it being uncomfortable is reason enough to not do it. I suppose that random women don't care for my opinion about their looks and I don't see the reason to bother them with it.


I disagree.


Why not question them? You may think that it's nice but is not valid for everyone. I think that is better to not say anything - you will not make someone uncomfortable with your attempts at being nice that way.

Sorry I want to be a decent member of this society and be nice to people, guess being an asshole is the way to go now and days.

You are viewing your compliments about a woman's appearance as being nice because that is your intent. And you are a very nice guy. But the random woman you are talking to doesn't know you. As women, we have to assume the worst in order to protect ourselves. Women don't view compliments by random guys about their appearance as guys being "nice." It is viewed as creepy. It is unwelcome in many cases. Why can't you talk to a woman about something other than her appearance? That way you can talk to her and not make her feel uncomfortable. She will also feel respected and that you value her opinion. Men are twice a woman's size in most cases. I'm 5'6''--if a 6'6'' random guy comes up to me and starts making comments to me about my appearance--I get really uncomfortable and my fear sensors start kicking up. I just want out of a situation like that as quickly as possible and I find myself hoping that things don't go in a bad direction and I start thinking about what I am going to do if they do go in a bad direction.

I never said that. Congratulations on putting words into my mouth.
