Dear :
All friends

Hello guys....
i got a question for you.!

what are they mean, if girls saying to a guy " you are beautiful.."

does beautiful in this case is such a mock??

as i know, "beautiful" only used for a guy to the girl/woman.
but how about girl/women saying it to the guy???

i am so sorry, i am not native speaker..and of course do not know english that well. So, really appreciate for your help.

thanks before guys...

That's the standard english usage.

It,most often, is used as an adjective for modifying feminine nouns.However, it can be used for other things as well; it can't be used for males.

- That girl is beautiful.

- beautiful weather.

However, we'd say handsome man for addressing or praising a man's looks.
Thank you v.much for your help ,karasardana!!

now, i see what they are mean when they say it...
Students: We have free audio pronunciation exercises.
I'm not sure about other countries, but here in England it is not uncommon for a girl to say that a man is beautiful. In my experience it is more common to hear a girl comment that a man is 'beautiful' than it is to hear 'handsome'.
It is always a compliment and shouldn't be taken in any other way. Emotion: smile
It's so intresting for me. If someone say that a guy is beautiful, it means that guy has charming face like girl's. He must be cute and has traits like a girl. That's what is in my mind about that. Take it easy Dude!
Ardywhat are they mean, if girls saying to a guy " you are beautiful.."
In the U.S., telling a guy he is beautiful does not nomally mean that he is good-looking. We would consider that somewhat strange and unflattering. To tell him that he is good-looking, you would tell him that he is handsome.

Sometimes, though, "You're beautiful" is said to a man to recognize that he has done something for you that you appreciate, but that has nothing to do with his looks. It's like saying "Thank you". But if you don't know English well and are not familiar with local customs when in the U.S., it would be better to avoid this expression.
