How do you feel about yourself when someone pays you a nice compliment? Special? Proud? Appreciated? Seen? Admired? These are just a few reasons why it is nice to give compliments to other people.
We all need a confidence boost from time to time. A compliment gives us that. A sincere compliment can remind us of what our best qualities are.
Even though men are not typically seen as people that you give compliments to, they like being appreciated just as much as women. A good, sincere compliment can make a guy’s day and even turn it around for the better.
Think about your significant other and what you love about him. Is he a great provider? Someone whom you can always talk to? Is he a really good cook? Let him know how special he is and how great he makes you feel.
At the end of the day, we all like to feel seen and appreciated by those around us. We all like to be reminded of what it is that makes us special, of what other people see in us.
There are some slight differences in compliments for men versus compliments for women. Women tend to get complimented more on things like their looks and their style, though you can also give guys similar compliments too.
And when it comes to relationships, women tend to enjoy more romantic compliments. But that does not mean that men do not enjoy romance either.
On the whole, men seem to enjoy having their efforts complimented the most. Whether it is a date he planned or a presentation he put together at work, they like seeing their efforts pay off.
At the same time, keep in mind that men and women are not so vastly different. When it comes down to it, anyone likes a compliment that comes straight from the heart.
If you want to know how to go about complimenting a guy, here are some tips below on how to go about it.
How to Compliment a Guy
Even though men may not get compliments as much as women, they can still tell if you are being fake with them. Only give compliments that you genuinely mean.
Compliment their looks
Yes, guys care about their looks too. You can make a guy feel nice especially if he has made an effort with his hair or outfit.
There are also his actual physical attributes. If you think he has nice eyes, hair, etc., let him know. It might even make him blush a little.
While it is true that men typically do not put as much time and effort into their appearances as much as women do, a guy will still appreciate it if you point out how great his new haircut looks or how noticeable it is that he has been working out more at the gym.
Compliment his work
Who out there does not enjoy being complimented for the hard work that they do? Guys are no different and they are typically known for the work they do.
Whether you work with him or are his wife or friend, let him know how good he is at what he does. It will make him feel special.
Maybe he talks passionately about what he does in the office or you have seen him on the job yourself. Either way, he will love being complimented for the hard work he does.
This can apply to not only his work, but his other skills as well. Is he well-read? Is he good at fixing things? If you can acknowledge his skills, then he will feel nice about it.
Make him feel important
Aside from being good at his job, how else can you make a guy feel important? Is he strong? Is he always helpful? One of the best things you can tell a guy is that he matters.
If he feels like he is important to you, he will feel flattered and that is a great compliment. Maybe you enjoy your time with him and you feel like you can tell him anything. Whatever these great attributes are, let him know.
These are just a few ways that you can compliment a guy. Below are many more ways in which you can compliment a man that you know, whether he is a friend, a husband, or someone else that you may know.
