9 Ways To Compliment a Guy That Will Make Him Appreciate You More, Love You More Than Ever
1. Stick to the truth.
Empty flattery won’t win his heart. Stick to what he knows is true. And if you’re complimenting him in on his eyes, get the color right.
2. Deliver with sincerity without an ulterior motive.
Never pay him a compliment just to get something from him or to soften him up for a big ask.
3. Make it specific.
Saying “You look good” is okay, but “I love that color on you” or “You look handsome in that shirt” is more specific and meaningful.
4. Get to know what matters most to him.
If you have no idea (or care) what matters most to him, your compliments will miss their mark and push him further away.
5. Focus on things he’s proud of.
If he’s been working on some self-improvement project such as hitting the gym, volunteering, taking risks, etc., celebrate his progress.
6. Never neglect praise-worthy traits he’s less aware of.
Call his attention to things you love about him that he may not even notice.
7. Choose your timing carefully.
For instance, don’t interrupt him in the middle of something that requires concentration to compliment him on his golf game.
8. Never fish for a return compliment.
Never pay him a compliment in the hopes that he’ll compliment you right back or tell you something you want to hear.
9. Tell him how he makes you feel.
Remember the tip on making it specific, let him know when his words and actions make you feel safe, respected, beautiful, etc.
