I met this beautiful Ethopian woman and I wanted to tell her that she was beautiful. She understands English just fine but I wanted to surprise her and tell her in Amharic.

Anyway, why would you tell her she is beautiful, not good telling a woman she is beautiful, you can act around her as though she is beautiful, never verbalize it until after you sleep with her.

Which part turned you off? A woman will act like a Queen if told she is beautiful, at least until she is committed. I am speaking from experience. You are a woman so you don't understand.

My advice to you is to just tell her in English b/c even if you know the [Amharic] words, unless you get the pronunciation correct (hard to do online..) she may not understand you... and that could have the opposite of the effect you intend.

...I speak from experience :D
