Sometimes it's better to be safe than to be funny.
Usually, a guy will blanch at the suggestion. I drive it home by reminding whoever I'm talking to that nearly every man I have ever met outweighs me by at least 50 pounds. I don't lift. I don't take any sort of martial arts classes. All I have is my wits and the hopeless hope that a bystander will come to my "rescue" which if it happens is usually white knight type shit with the implicit or explicit expectation that now I "owe him one."
The other thing I ask men is "would you offer such a compliment to a man?"
I continue, because this line of questioning is uncomfortable.
"Seriously, would you comment that a man's legs were looking good? No? Why not, if it's just a compliment?"
