How to compliment a guy? 50 best complements men want to hear?

Well, first of all, let’s make it clear, compliments are not only meant to be for ladies, they can also be given to men. Guys love compliments as much as girls do, but gentlemen hardly ever get any or, at least, they get compliments a lot rarer than ladies do. A compliment given to a guy builds up and boosts his confidence and self esteem, therefore, it’s vital to give your man this type of “nourishment”.

A guy can be turned into a brave hero, caring gentleman and gallant chevalier, he can make you feel like a princess, thanks to skilfully expressed, sincere compliment.

In order to give your special someone a good compliment you need to understand that men and women like different types of “praise”. For example, a compliment that a lady might like can only offend or disturb a man…Let’s explore it a little further…

The main “rule” for giving a compliment to a man is to emphasize and accentuate his “manhood”.

Men are very sensitive to hypocrisy and can distinguish insincerity very quickly, therefore, avoid showering your guy with “empty worship” out of the blue. Say only things that you really mean, don’t try to overload your man with untruthful flattery, misleading sweet talk and insincere admiration, because he will definitely feel it…

How does a man react to compliments?

Imagine that you called your special someone “a real gentleman”…he will start to open all doors for you and will try to act, as a gallant and courteous man. Encouraged by you, he will try to prove that you are right! If you express gratitude to your boyfriend/husband for his kindness and generosity, for example, he will only want to give you more of the things for which you are grateful; if you call your other half “skilled” and “talented”, he will want to move mountains for you and will try even harder to do his best.

So, instead of criticizing the person you love, give him your sincere appreciation and compliment him, saying:
“You are so smart!”
“My darling, I’m sure that you can do this!”
“I’m sure you’ll succeed!”

And, finally, the most important tip on how to compliment a guy is this: remember that your compliment should always be sincere and come straight from your heart, you need to really love and appreciate the person, whom you are showering with your praise.

Now, let’s have a look at the list of 50 best compliments you can give to your man:

    I compliment my husband often and sincerely. I was just looking for some new ideas to encourage him and show my love. This was a good article. One thing to add to the list though, is compliment his work. My husband loves it when I compliment him on how hard working and talented he is. I let him know that I appreciate him putting forth so much effort to take care of our family And provide for us. It really makes him feel his worth as my man.
