    becoming red = blush?

    Hello,
    Let's say a girl tells you that you're a beautiful man, and you become red in your face.
    Do you blush then?
    And could you just say: "Wow, I blush" / "Wow, I'm blushing". ?
    Is that right or is there another word for this meaning?

    Cheers!

    You're on the right track.

    You would blush, but you would say........

    "Now you're making me blush. "

    Incidentally, in the UK, only females are described as "beautiful". A man would be "handsome" or "good looking".

    I'd say 'I turn red' ... instead of 'become'.

    I blush everytime she kisses me in public.
    Stop it! I am blushing here.
    I blush with shame....
