Who among us doesn’t like compliments? They’re the best. Even if you’re awkward about accepting them, a compliment can really brighten your day. Whether it’s something said by a friend, family member, or the person you’re seeing, it can make all the difference. However, a lot of people do associate compliments with appearance, especially when dating. Of course, there’s nothing wrong with looks based compliments, but it’s important to acknowledge that there are other (great) parts of people that go beyond how they look. We want to share some with you. Here are 7 compliments that aren’t about looks to impress your date…
Giving a compliment about what someone enjoys, really shows that you see them as more than just a pretty face. It shows that you’re seeing that they have interests. The great thing about this one is that there are so many things that any one person can be passionate about and you can always learn from that passion.
It is astonishing the amount of people who don’t really
listen, so when you meet someone who does, let
There’s a great proverb about how we have two ears and one mouth for a reason. To listen more, essentially. It is astonishing the amount of people who don’t really listen, so when you meet someone who does, let them know. It’ll show that you really appreciate them.
A lot of us have probably (at some point) felt self-conscious about our laugh. I know I have. This is one of those compliments that’s likely to stick with you for the ages. After all, a laugh is a look at you at your happiest. That’s definitely a beautiful thing to see and tell someone you like.

Still one of the best compliments I’ve ever received, is there anything better than someone acknowledging how great it is to exist at the same time as you? Your favourite Disney heroes could never (I joke, of course.) If you want to meet people that you’d be lucky to know, check out CLiKD.
As the great Christina Yang (of Grey’s Anatomy fame, c’mon) once said “Oh, screw beautiful. I’m brilliant. If you want to appease me, compliment my brain.” What a queen! She was definitely on to something with this one.
From the colours they choose, to the actual outfits

Now, I know what you’re thinking. Isn’t style part of how someone looks? I see your logic, but style is definitely more than that. It’s self-expression. From the colours they choose, to the actual outfits and accessories, everything can tell a story. Plus, people even make their own items to wear too.
Of course, it’s great to be liked and loved, but admiration is a lovely compliment too. It means that they really respect you and if someone admires you, on some level they’re inspired by you too. Got to love that.
So, there you have it! 7 compliments that aren’t about looks to impress your date. Check out our post on non-sexual turn ons too, these are perfect for showing that you see your date as more than just sex (unless that’s the agreement you have.) Enjoy!
