1. “I’m happy to see you today.”
Even if you’re not, you’re still being an upbeat person and being an upbeat person contributes to happiness.
2. “Nice to see you.”
I mean, unless they’re invisible and don’t like that about themselves. Then you’re just rubbing it in.
3. “You make me want to be a better person.”
Think about it, if they are an idiot, you’re just saying you want to get better so you aren’t like them. Or, if they are awesome, you’re saying you want to get more on their level. There’s always room for improvement!
4. “You look handsome, pretty, nice, etc.”
I’m sure you were expecting this one eventually. These four simple words have the power to put a smile on someone’s face AND make their entire day.
5. “You seem cool.”
Despite the sarcastic tendency, telling someone they seem like they’re interesting to hang out with or be friends with is a serious confidence booster. At the end of the day, everyone’s looking for a little acceptance.
