Brownie points are things that you keep track of yourself when talking to your crush or someone you're into. You gain brownie points when you say nice things or joke around with them and they accept the joke. You can also lose brownie points by saying something insulting or rude that the person would most likely take offense to.
"I just gained brownie points with him!"
