"Why do you look so serious, are you angry? You should smile more." The amount of times I've had to hear this (or a variation of it) from male colleagues in professional environments are more than I can count. The amount of times I've heard a male colleague say this to another male colleague of mine? None.

How about giving a woman a compliment instead, on something that has nothing to do with her appearance? Here are a couple of suggestions in case you get stuck. Compliment her on her: - strength
- ambition
- intelligence
- persistence
- talent
- ideas
- efficiency

Because more likely than not, she is strong, ambitious, intelligent, persistant, talented, creative and efficient, just as much as she is pretty when she smiles because she wants to.
