The Right Way to Compliment Your Partner For a Happy Relationship

By Luisa Hilburn

It’s not very easy to compliment a woman who pleases you. You don’t want your words to be superficial, common and unimaginative. But at the same time, you don’t want her to feel a lack of affection or love.

You must find more original themes and focus on creative compliments that will touch her right in the heart.

Compliments for a woman: the importance of sincerity and originality

What can you say to a woman without being misunderstood? All men have found themselves, at least once, in a situation where they gave a compliment to an attractive woman (something like “you are really beautiful today!”) Hoping to receive a “thank you”, but instead, they reply, “Because I’m not beautiful any other day?”

Sound familiar? Women are particularly picky about receiving compliments. If you say something too straightforward; you are a sex addict. If you say something too platonic, they don’t get the message. It’s as if you can never win!

We tend to forget that women have egos just like men. Often, when a woman reacts dramatically it’s not because she is neurotic or crazy, but because her ego has been touched.

Complimenting a woman is extremely important. You want to give her feelings of confidence and security and, above all, you do not want her to cry after you. Women like compliments on their personality and their intellectual qualities. And, very often, a compliment for a woman is a better sedative than any expensive gift.

As a matter of fact, women often boast of the compliments her partner has made her. To help you in your quest for the perfect relationship and a happy companion, we have prepared a list of compliments for women.

7 Compliments all modern women love to hear:

1. What else can you tell me about oriental dancing (or any other subject that fascinates her)?

With this question what you’re really saying is: I support you and I love your centers of interests. I take them as seriously as you.

2. I will not tell you that you are hot or sexy, but beautiful inside and out.

Not because I think you are not, but because I don’t think these words are strong enough to describe how I feel about you. These words cannot describe all the sex appeal, charm and liveliness that emanates from you.

On the other hand, I’m going to tell you that you are beautiful because it encompasses both your physical and intellectual traits. You are more than a beautiful face.

3. I’m sad that you failed your exam (or whatever she planned to do).

Because you worked hard and it was really important to you, I want your goals and dreams to become mine. For better or for worse.

4. I’m not saying you’re perfect

I’m just saying that I would not change anything about your physique or your personality. I love every part of you, perfect or not, because they make you special and fascinating. I like everything that differentiates you from others. What I telling you is that I will love you unconditionally.

5. Your personality is what I prefer the most.

Of course, I think that you are beautiful and that you look like a supermodel. But, what I like most is our connection and the way we always have fun together. I have the impression that with you, I absolutely can not be bored. And, for me, it’s more important than physical attraction.

6. I love the fact that you continue to surprise me every day.

You are one of the most interesting people I have ever met and, with you, I never know what to expect. I feel like I need a whole life to get to know you.

7. It doesn’t matter what your parents, friends or colleagues think.

Your opinion is the only one that matters; everything else is relative. But if their opinions are important to you, they are important to me too. Nevertheless, your opinion dictates all this.

7 Great compliments for men:

Because the way to the heart of a man goes through his ego, do not hesitate to flatter the one who makes you crack. Here are the top ten compliments that men love to hear.

1. I can talk to you about anything.

It’s the most beautiful mark of trust you can offer him. By saying “with you, I can talk about everything”, you imply that you have never reached this level of complicity before with a man. And it’s super rewarding…

2. I feel safe with you.

Saying that to a man, you show him how strong and manly he is. This awakens his protective instinct and makes him all the more eager to take care of you.

3. You have strong arms (or whatever other body part of his you love).

Even if he is not necessarily hyper muscled, the important thing is that you like his body. Do not hesitate to tell him that you adore this or that part of his body and that you could spend hours contemplating it… It will boost his ego a lot!

4. We have the best sex.

Because men have a highly developed competitive spirit, compliment him on his sexual performance. Do not hesitate to tell him that it’s the best shot you’ve ever had. The more you show him that you are satisfied on this point, the more he will redouble his efforts to please you.

5. I like your sense of humor.

The goal is not to laugh at his craziest jokes, but to show him that you appreciate his humor. A man needs to be reassured about his ability to fulfill you in every way, even if it’s just making you smile.

6. I love your friends and we really get along.

His friends are sacred. The day he presents them to you is the day he really wants you. If you do not like them, never let him know, because he will always choose his friends. On the contrary, tell him that his friends are great and that you appreciate them and he will be happy.

7. You are good at your work.

Men like to feel unique and exceptional. When he tells you about his work, flatter him. Show him how good he is in his field and that you like to see when he is very passionate.
