Flattery Will Get You Everywhere—With Your Partner

For a long-lasting and happy relationship, here are some great tips on how to compliment your partner:

  • Compliments that are specific are much better than vague compliments. “The color of that outfit and the way it fits your body makes you look amazing,” is better than, “You look nice.”
  • Compliments that really take into consideration something that was done without fan fair is great.  If your partner does something nice, helpful, sweet, etc., and doesn’t mention that they did it, it is wonderful to point out the action and really compliment them for their efforts. They will appreciate that you pay attention to the subtle things they do.
  • Find different things to compliment your partner on rather than simply the same ol’ thing. Finding unique ways to compliment your partner keeps thing fresh and makes your relationship feel more spontaneous.
  • Compliment when you observe them doing something really cool. It helps people want to do more of the same.
