How to compliment a man… What men want to hear.

Let’s get right to it.

You can watch this quick video from Matthew Hussey for three things men never get tired of hearing.

  • You are such a guy.
  • I feel safe around you.
  • I feel bad for other women, that I got you.

Here are some other good ones from Why Men Love Bitches.

  • You are right.
  • You are the best _______ (at loading the dishwasher, fixing anything, picking/choosing anything)
  • Thank you
  • I just love this place (compliment any place he picked or you go together. Hint: Men take this as you complimenting him even if he didn’t cook the food, start the restaurant, or build the hotel)
  • You are much better at _______ than me/them. (packing the car, drinking a beer, lifting heavy things, etc)

Notice these don’t really have anything to do with the way men look or dress. Of course men like to hear those things, but they mean less to them than they do to your girlfriends.

Men like to be noticed for their accomplishments, gifts, what they make, or provide. They want you to praise their brains and decisions.

Use these generously.

What gets rewarded, gets repeated.
