And while I'm at it, it's also worth noting that girls are trained to think guys objectify them. Stating that someone 'is something instead of that you 'think something has an undertone that calls to mind Hollywood women. Like a crowd of guys watching a movie saying 'bro, she is so hot. Girls are socialized to think all guys are like this. If you want to seem romantic, and she's not a self-aware, confident chick, you have to be Hugh Grant about it. Make it personal, make her feel special.
