20 Ways to Charm a Girl Back When She Calls You Handsome

Who doesn’t like getting compliments, especially when it’s from a pretty girl? When you end up in that situation, do you know what to say when a girl calls you handsome?

Let’s be real here, a lot of us guys have no clue what to say. So, we end up making fools out of ourselves and turning off prospective dates.

There are quite a few reasons a girl will call you handsome. For instance, when she likes you.

Other times when a girl calls you handsome, she just wants to use you or get something from you. Based on this, you can figure out what to say.


Top 5 reasons why a girl calls you handsome

Girls can be hard to understand sometimes. It can feel like cracking an impossible code or doing mental gymnastics.
It doesn’t have to be, because we’re about to reveal the top 5 reasons why a girl calls you handsome:

01She thinks you’re attractive
This is the most obvious reason. Think about why you call a girl pretty or hot.
It’s because you think she is attractive. Just because she calls you handsome, it doesn’t mean she wants to be with you as it can be a platonic statement.

02She’s trying to butter you up
Sometimes, women play at our weaknesses to their advantage. When a girl we like calls us handsome, we’re willing to do anything she asks, and she knows that.
Usually, the request comes right after you’re done reacting positively to the compliment. It becomes pretty obvious at this point.


03She’s just being nice
Maybe she’s just being nice and wants to put a smile on your face. This can be a random stranger or someone you already know.
This sometimes means she’s interested but isn’t always the case. Wait for more clues before you respond.



04She’s your girlfriend and wants to give you a compliment
Your girlfriend will call you handsome to brighten your mood. She may also call you handsome because you look extra good that day to her.

05She wants to get to know you
A girl you don’t know will call you handsome to start a conversation, make it clear she has a crush or simply to leave a mark on you. This mark will cause you to think about her if you think she’s cute or make you want to avoid her if you’re not feeling it.


5 flirty responses when a girl you just met calls you handsome and you are interested in her

If you’re a good-looking guy, you should be no stranger to girls calling you handsome. Often, this is a sign of flirting, and this gives you a hint that you need to make a move.
When you like her too, you want to be as smooth as possible so you don’t end up scaring her off. A funny approach will also work because girls love guys who can make them laugh.
These are some examples of what to say when a girl calls you handsome and you want to be flirty:

If you’re shy, this is good to use because you can signal the girl to take the lead on flirting.

5 polite responses to show you are not interested when a girl calls you handsome

We like what we like, and have the right to not like certain things. This can be applied to relationships and meeting new girls.
We don’t like every girl that comes our way. The important thing is to be kind and respectful with your response.
You don’t want her to feel like she’s unattractive or not in your league. Calling a woman ugly is a lame move.
Here’s what to say when a girl calls you handsome but you aren’t interested:

16“That’s very kind of you! Thanks!”
This is a polite response you can use to accept the compliment. It’s great because it doesn’t lead her on.

20“I must be doing something right! I appreciate the compliment.”
Use this when you want to be polite and not dismissive of her compliment.



Now that you know what to say when a girl calls you handsome, you can work on keeping up your appearance, especially when there’s someone you have your eyes on. The same is true for your relationships because it helps to keep things fresh and interesting.
And for the girls you don’t like, and the ones you know don’t see you in that way, be mindful of the way you dismiss them. You want other people to be kind to you, right?
So, do the same.
