    almond eyes

    Which one is better to make a nice compliment?

    1 Your amazing Asian style, almond shaped eyes are one (or some?) of the reasons why I want to make love to you every single day of the week. Your overwhelmingly charming personality of course is (so), too.

    2 Your awesome almond shaped eyes that remind me of Asian style are part of my desire to seduce you whenever we meet. The other part is your overwhelmingly charming personality.

    Re: almond eyes

    You'll see lots of people whose eyes have a single epicanthic fold in that very non-Asian country to your north, Finland. The president of Cuba is known by his countrymen as el Chine​ because he, too, has those alluring eyes.

    Re: almond eyes

    Thank you for that piece of information, however, do you think #1 or #2 sounds more natural?

    Re: almond eyes

    E#2 is definitely not natural.

    Your amazing Asian-style, almond-shaped eyes are one of the reasons
    why I want to make love to you every single day of the week. Your overwhelmingly charming personality of course is another reason.


    Teacher's response: That's OK grammatically.
    Personal response:. If anybody said that to my offspring, any potential relationship would end on the spot.

    Try:

    You have beautiful eyes. They captivate me. Then there's your smile. You have a very pretty smile. I always enjoy looking at your smiling face.

    OK, I have to admit that my sentence was really a bit strange. After reading it again, I just realized that also in my mother language it would sound stupid. I'm not so much into stuff like that.
    But you don't have to worry about your offspring because I'm not planning to move to Prague but to Colorado. No need to worry.

    Now I'm concerned for my granddaughter - though her father has a disturbing fixation with guns....
