History has proven that girls need more affirmation from others to make you feel beautiful and better about ourselves than boys. Girls tend to care more about what others think than boys. Maybe it’s because of the long history of patriarchy that has been a social norm in traditional societies but right now, the world has definitely changed…

Even boys need compliments in order to thrive in this world full of pressures and demands. Men can toughen up all they want but you girls can see beyond their cold and brooding exteriors. From time to time, they also need some flowery words and genuine compliments to affirm that they are appreciated.

How to Compliment your Boyfriend

Are you ready to start making your boyfriend feel great about themselves? Fluff his ego by following these easy steps on how to compliment your boyfriend:

1. Find a redeeming quality that you genuinely like or love about the guy.

There is a huge difference between a compliment and a flattery. Compliments need to be genuine and for it to be true, you should actually focus on what you love about your boyfriend.

You said yes, girl, so there must be tons of reasons why he’s the lucky guy. Maybe you can say something about his bravery, his gentlemanliness, or his hard work. He’d be over the moon if you make him realize you notice the little things he does for you.

Your compliments don’t have to be too deep for them to be genuine. It can be about how dazzling his eyes are, or how buff his shoulders look and feel everytime you hug. Boys like those kinds of compliments.

2. Think of the proper way and articulation on how to deliver your compliment.

You can choose between telling him on the phone or via text or in person (if it can wait). Most compliments that deliver the desired effect and elicit the desired reaction are given in person, face to face. Also make sure to use adjectives and words that perfectly describe what you’re trying to mean and tell them.

3. If you give it in person, look him in the eye.

Another totally big factor that will convince your boyfriend that you’re not toying with him is the sincerity in your eyes while you’re talking to him so don’t avoid eye contact. You’ll be giving him those butterflies in his stomach!

4. Make sure to dwell on it a bit longer.

Another thing to remember is since you’re going to bring it up out of nowhere or in connection to something you’re talking about, make sure to make a big deal out of it. Extend the topic about him once in a while. Your guy deserves to be the center of your attention!

5. Flirt a little more.

If you’re successful in making your guy feel good with your compliment, you’ll both be laughing and smiling about it a lot. Cherish and embrace the moment. You might even be rewarded with hugs and kisses. Atta girl!

Cute Compliments for Boyfriends

Now that you already know how to give the compliment, you’ll need some examples of compliments that are actually effective to fluff your boyfriend’s ego. Here are some cute compliments for your boyfriend that’ll surely make him feel like a girl inside:

1. Babe, you have such tantalizing eyes.

The word “dazzling” is overused when it comes to describing the eyes. Try using this one. He’s going to be over the moon.

2. I hope you know how much I look up to you when it comes to hard work and perseverance.

Your guy might be busting his ass off to make both of your dreams come true so let him know that you know it and that you’re grateful for having him.

3. You look so hot in those shorts.

Up for some sexy time? Compliment how good his body looks in what he’s currently wearing.
