Do Women Really Fall for Flattery?

Over the years, there has been a saying that ” If you want a woman to comply to your requests, try using flattery to persuade her.” Really I wonder if every or any man can get away with this with all women. It may have worked a couple of times, in fact it has worked 98 percent of the time used.  Flattery plays well with women. YES!  But it doesn’t sit still. She will always refer back to it.

Hank Ketcham- Flattery is like chewing gum. Enjoy it, but don’t swallow it.

Perhaps women have been complying with this over the years.

Flattery is the worst and fastest way of showing our esteem – Jonathan Swift

Flattery is a form of positive energy which men use to compliment or entice women when they need an instant result from them; it’s usually used instead of enforcing them to bend to their will.

Forms of Flattery used on women by men:

  • Men flatter women with words, lies, compliments and gestures.
  • Listening attentively to a woman talk for hours, even when she sounds very boring.
  • Pretending to have turned a new leaf by acting like a saint or being over sincere.
  • Showing interests in her accomplishments even if they make no sense to him.

A woman care about actions more than words, empty juicy flattery with nothing to back it up will only get her to pay attention initially, but will not go too far with her.

  1. I do like flattery. I wouldn’t bank on it’s worth, depending on who it came from, but it’s still nice. Kind of like candy. Not very nutritious, but tasty in small quantities.

  4. I think flattery is lovely. I give it and receive it. I give it with no agenda. I receive it humbly. If a lady is wearing a nice perfume I’ll tell her. If a man has cool shoes on I’ll tell him. I think flattery is a very positive and uplifting thing.

  5. Flattery is a dangerous thing. Using it too profusely can lead you down an alleyway from which there is no escape. Yet it’s something men do all the time and let’s not kid ourselves of the reason why most of the time…

  6. Flattery is lovely. Any woman will agree on that. I saw my wife over FaceTime a few days ago and I told her: “Man, you hair is so long and I almost forgot how Beautiful and Stunning you are”. She did not say anything back to me. I guess what I’m trying to say is: It depends on the situation and the woman. Flattery can let you get away with many things, but also if you don’t do it enough it will also get you in trouble.
