I really love what you’ve done with your hair.
That’s such a nice color on your—is it mauve?
Lavender? Doesn’t matter; it’s lovely.
What a great smile your dog has. And yours matches!
I feel smarter/cooler/wiser/enlightened after reading one of your poems.
That’s the best thing you’ve written so far.
That poem was interesting and weird.
That’s so cute.
That’s so you.
My mom would love your earrings.
You clean up real good!
You got that job? Wow!
I didn’t recognize you from your photo. You look younger/
hipper/prettier/handsomer in person.
Your house has that lived-in feeling. I love how unpolished it is.
You’re so talented that I’d hate you if I didn’t like you so much.
You know so much about, well, lots of stuff.
You don’t look a day over… wait, how old are you?
Wow, you look so good in this light.
