Default What is it with girls and their desire to be praised on their looks?

So I was hanging with a female friend the other day and a little ways into the day she random said " You didn't even tell me I looked good today." this threw me off because I've told her countless times she always looks fine and I responded well yeah of course you look good. What am I just supposed to tell her she looks good everytime I see her?

I'm wondering if this is a girl thing. Do girls expect a guy who they're hanging out with to compliment them on their appearances even if they're well aware that the guy thinks they're attractive already? What's more why would it matter if I compliment a girl who I've already complimented before in the past?

Plus if you compliment a girl too much wouldn't that just boost up their ego too high and wouldn't that just be a bad thing???

Women.....

She sounds like an attention whore.

Chicks do worry about their looks a lot but she's blatantly asking you to tell her she looks good... sounds like a real good chick...

Sounds like this girl is a bit self-absorbed. If it becomes a problem, address it.

haha no, not all girls expect guys to tell them how beautiful they are etc.. i'm not that type. i think she wants more attention from you.

I can't stand girls that do this, i refer to it as 'fishing for compliments'. They say something along the lines of 'god i look ugly today' just hoping that someone will say 'no you look amazing'. I hate it and whenever i hear it i always agree just because i know what they are doing. I know that some girls have low self esteem but asking for compliments and needing that reassurence just gets annoying and comes off as needy.

I'm guessing this girl has a thing for you and that's why shes acting so needy..every girl needs an ego booster every once in a while, but I personally don't act like this (and I don't know any other females that do) -shrug-

I don't act like that at all, and I actually find girls who do act like that irritating to be honest
Girls can be worried about their looks, but telling a guy that they haven't complimented you today and being annoyed at them for it? Compliment fishing.
Don't give her too much of the attention she wants, the compliment fishing will only get worse, believe me.

A lot of girls care how they look and love getting compliments. Doesn't everyone?

But this sound a bit attention seeking to me. Asking outright for compliments seems like she just wants someone to tell her she looks good. Honestly though I don't see the point...making people say it doesn't really count for much?

A bit of an attention seeker I feel.

Although in defence I will say that when a girl has gone to a lot of effort to really look her best, it is always so nice to receive a compliment.
