Alternatively, you could just straight up tell her that you appreciate straightforward and honest communication. In my opinion, playing games like this in romance is very childish; it's much better to be open and honest, really. I'm telling you from my experience dear, this is how my closest relationships have lasted longer now.
Oh God, I just realized how old I sound I'm only 24, really!

On a related note, I had a confusing experience the other day. I'm travelling through the south of Italy at the moment. I was in Amalfi and wanted to go to one of the smaller towns above the city, but the buses were too infrequent and crowded so I decided to take a taxi.
I took a taxi from the line-up in the square. The whole ride, the driver kept telling me how beautiful I was and how lucky he was to have me in his taxi, which I guess I responded to with a smile and a thank you, without making any further conversation. On the way, he kept trying to touch my face and hold my hand, to which I told him a firm no and brushed his hands off me. He then drove us to a quiet spot near the town. When he parked the car, he put his hand on my leg and tried to kiss me, to which I gave an even firmer no and insisted he take me back.
For the rest of the day I was kind of racking my brain and wondering about what signals I were giving off that was a green light to him. Compliments can make me feel awkward, and my way is to take them politely and without much assumption. Maybe saying "thank you" for the compliment or smiling was an invitation to him? Or was there something about my presentation made him think that I was open to anything like that?
But the more I thought about it, there was really nothing there, it was just his read on the situation. I could not have been clearer in my verbal message, and I wish he had respected that.

It's night now and the politics threads have gone to sleep and I'm out of popcorn. Oh woe is me"The most merciful thing in the world, I think, is the inability of the human mind to correlate all its contents... Some day the piecing together of dissociated knowledge will open up such terrifying vistas of reality, and of our frightful position therein, that we shall either go mad from the revelation or flee from the light into the peace and safety of a new Dark Age.

... I'm 23. o.o I thought you were like 40+ lol. (no offense, you're just an old soul ;p)
You are one of the young-uns! I'll help you.
When I compliment I only say one aspect once. With most women, they don't dress that amazing for me to give genuine compliments all over. Because most of the time, why should they? They're in public.
I've seen men like that who are far more aggressive, and the women there are pretty stiff. It's not like she's nodding and laughing. The body language is closed. So I would bet you weren't being that open. I do people watch a lot. So most advancings I see from men are quite received not too well lol. But once in a while I really do look for men who are suave. It's rare, but I like to learn how they act and I take note, but it's too rare to actually see anything super significant. I mean sometimes I feel bad for the guy, but then I no longer feel that bad if he feels that the woman has to comply. I'm a big believer in body language and usually there will be a contradiction if a woman is unsure or she is trying to betray her true feelings whichever it may be. Which isn't always easy to identify.
I mean then there is like age difference, the much farther the gap the more you have to be aware for sure. Sure, lots of women like older men. But not all aim very high lol. So it can be creepy when a much older man is hitting on a woman who is much younger.
I hope those encounters lessen for you.obviously you're going to get nothing from reading this

Another so random thought:
I don't think I will ever find a boy band group as good as Backstreet Boys, like guys in the group look way more handsome overall than 1D or even NSync back then.
And the music was catchy and feel good.
I appreciate pop music too.
