Compliments For Men That They Really Love & Can’t Resist

Guys like to show that they are too cool for compliments. But trust me when I tell you that they are craving compliments. Men love to be recognized and praised whenever they do something right. If you compliment him right then he will get closer to you, especially emotionally and mentally.

Just like in women, compliments boost confidence. And men love to exuberate confidence so what better way to hype your man than an awesome compliment. Here are the compliments for men that they really love:

1.  Show You Trust And Respect Him

One of the most important things a guy loves to be complimented on is that you trust and respect him. You tell him that you trust him means that he is doing a good job supporting you and you believe in him. And who doesn’t love respect? But for men, respect means a lot more. For men, respect, admiration, and trust are all tied together.

Your simple words praising him, showing respect, and complimenting how amazing he is can make him feel like “the special one”.

Few examples the show trust and respect are:

  • You are so talented, smart, and hardworking. I am really proud of you.
  • I feel safe with you – You are surely my safe place

  • I love how amazing and kind you are

2.  Appreciate His Ability To Lead

Men are born to lead the way. They love being able to guide and help their counterparts as much as they can. But this does not translate to masculine toxicity. All it means that most men would love being able to take a lead in a plan, project, or decision when given a chance.

Men today are more aware of not overstepping or taking over their partner’s space. Therefore, most men are hesitant to take the lead to avoid the “wrong impression” or make the “wrong choice” for their partners.

Whenever you can, include your guy to be a part of your decisions, planning, or projects. They would love to feel important and valuable to you. Even when the choices that he made are not something that you like, compliment him for helping you and appreciate his effort.

  • Share your problems with him and accept his suggestions with an open heart.

3.  Celebrate His Efforts

Regardless of gender, every single person would love to be recognized for the efforts they are putting into the relationship. For men, compliments on his efforts mean assurance, acceptance, and acknowledgment that you like and appreciate what he has done for you.

Even it’s the simplest of things. Like getting you a coffee, doing the dishes, a present, or even fixing the small things around the house. Acknowledging his efforts and praising him out loud would make your relationship stronger and you will get more of the good stuff. Even you don’t get big presents often, it’s important that praise his kind acts towards you no matter how small or big they are.

Efforts that men put

Plus, everybody loves a good compliment on their appearance. Especially when you are in a relationship, your partner would love to know if you find them aesthetically pleasing. Therefore, notice every single detail about your man and compliment him on that. Compliments for men on their body/appearance can be anything like whether he got a haircut, shaved, lost weight, or rocking an amazing outfit, let him know that you noticed.

Men love being complimented on the things he is crazy about. Like a sport that he likes, a passion, or even his job. Even though it might sound silly to you, but notice how his eyes will light up when you compliment him on his hobby or his job.

Most people would really appreciate being praised for their knowledge, experience, and skills that they possess. It shows that they are doing something right with their life and you are impressed by it. It’s almost like validating their love for their career or a hobby and becoming a part of it as well.

Although, you might not like what he does or likes as a hobby. But supporting him would ensure that you care about it and the things that he loves. Plus, guys love to show off how supporting their partner is and it boosts their ego and love for you.

  • One of the most beautiful things about you is how strong and persistent you are with your principles

6.  Show He Has A Strong Impact On You

A compliment that drives a man crazy is you admitting/saying that he has a strong impact on you. It’s usually a misconception that woman should not accept the impact the guy has over her. While in some cases this can be true. But when the feelings are mutual, there should be no shaming in letting him know that he affects you.

This doesn’t have to be through giant gestures. Telling your man that you are happy with him, that you connect with him on a much deeper level, or that he drives you crazy is actually going to make your man fall in love with you all over again.

What a man wants is to know that he is making you feel the same way, he feels about you. Weak in the knees with a rush of emotions and knowing that he lights up your day as you do for him.

Let him know that you feel the same through love gestures and compliments like:

  • I can’t control my smile around you
  • You make me blush all the time
  • I am so thankful that I met you. I can’t imagine what life would be like without you
  • You make me happy in ways I could have never imagined before
  • I love your scent. It gives me butterflies
  • I have never felt the depth of emotions, I feel with you
  • You make me weak on my knees, I am madly in love with you
  • You are my only safe place. I know that I can trust you with all my heart
  • Your smile lights up my whole world
  • I love how you make me feel. And it’s weird how quickly the time passes with you
