When Describing a Beautiful Woman

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and there are all kinds of beauty, especially when it comes to women.

When you’re describing women, start with the truth. If a woman is loud and boisterous to a fault, don’t describe her as a meek and mild bunny! (Unless that’s your girl’s thing.) Tell her she’s fearless and feisty, and that you revere her wild radiance!

Personally, I like the term wild woman. It shows a certain kind of defiance, but also a witchiness and attention to nature!

What if your woman brushes off compliments?

Kasia Urbaniak is one of my favorite experts on women and power. She talks about how women are raised to reflect inward. Society tells us to deflect compliments. This is part of the “Good Girl” persona.

If that’s your woman, she’s in good company. If you’re worried she’ll be overwhelmed or embarrassed at such a stunning compliment or description, the make sure you’re being vulnerable and showing honesty so that she knows you’re not just flattering her, but really being honest.

The last thing I want (or she wants) is for you to use these words to butter her up without any substance behind your words! So use these words genuinely!
