想侮辱一个女人吗?那就赞美她吧。
Want to insult a woman? Then offer her a compliment.

“你看起来不错”是男人能对女人说的最糟的话之一,因为女人会认为这句话的意思是她看起来很胖。
And "you look well" is one of the worst things a man can say to a woman - because she just thinks it means she looks fat.
其他会弄巧成拙的赞美还包括告诉一个女人你喜欢她化的妆,或者她的裙子很紧身。
Other compliments likely to backfire include telling a woman that you like her make-up, or that her dress is figure hugging.
调查还显示,说一个女人“有曲线”或者说她长得像她母亲或父亲也是绝对的禁忌,这一点会得到丈夫们的响应,他们在很久以前就决定赞美老婆是件不值得做的麻烦事。
Calling a woman "curvy" or saying she looks like her mother or father are also absolute no-nos, according to a survey that will ring true to husbands who decided long ago that paying their wives compliments is more trouble than it's worth.

It found that many women view compliments as "back handed" and are likely to throw them back in your face.
赞美一个女人最好的方法是夸她成功瘦身,说她看起来比往常瘦了。
The best way to compliment a woman is to mention her weight loss, saying that she looks thinner than normal.
约43%的被调查者说这是最好的赞美。

还有十分之四的女性在别人夸她们笑靥如花时最开心。
A further four in 10 are happiest when someone comments on their gorgeous smile.
称赞一个女人身上散发的香气好闻、夸她的头发美丽,或者夸她的眼睛漂亮也不容易被误解。
Focusing on the way a woman smells, how nice her hair is, or what beautiful eyes she has are also unlikely to be misinterpreted.
但是男人应避免谈论一个女人看起来气色如何,因为女人会以为他指的是她很胖。
But men should avoid talking about how well a woman looks as she will think he is saying she is fat.
其他表面恭维实则挖苦的话还有“你不像你看起来那么愚蠢”,或者“你看起来不像我预料的那么糟”。
Other backhanded compliments include "you're not as stupid as you look" and "you don't look as bad as I thought you would".
女人还讨厌任何人说她们的五官大,特别反感别人说她们强壮或魁梧。
