  1. “I love your dress. It really is beautiful. Can I ask where you purchased it?” ????? IF SOMEONE ASKED ME THAT QUESTION TO START A CONVERSTAION, I’D ASK THEM TO MIND THEIR OWN BUSINESS!!!

  2. I actually think that’s a really good subject. Women love when you notice something positive about them. Your compliments are validating and make most people comfortable.
