Make The Guy You Like Blush With These Compliments

Giving someone a compliment is one of the nicest things you can do, but it feels like people don’t give them out as often or genuinely anymore. Maybe that isn’t true, but I think there is something to be said about taking the time to go out of your way to make someone feel good. These are some compliments that might make the man in your life blush.

“I Love The Way You Think”

We always want to be complimented on the fact that we are smart, so why wouldn’t a guy want the same kind of compliment? If you are genuinely impressed with his mind, tell him!

A little bit of encouragement can go a long way—whether you’re telling them so they can get through the game they’re frustrated with or because they’re up for a big promotion at work.

Guys put effort into what they wear out on dates the same way we do, so why not give them a little ego boost and tell them you like what they’ve got on?

It’s natural for any person to feel down on themselves, but if the guy in your life is upset about something about themselves, remind them that you like them for the person they are.

It can be really easy to take someone for granted even if you don’t mean to. It happens sometimes. Make time to remind your man that you feel lucky to have him in your life.

“I Really Like Your Friends”

Obviously, don’t tell him this if it isn’t true, but if you like his friends, you should tell him that! Chances are his friends are liking you, too and that’s a big plus for you, especially if you just started dating.

“Thanks For Doing This”

Most of us were raised to say thank you to someone when they do something nice for us, but going out of your way to make them feel appreciated will make them feel like they’re doing a good job of taking care of you.

“You’re So Funny”

Everyone wants to think that they’re the funniest person that they know, but it can’t be true all the time. That being said, if you think the guy you’re seeing is funny, tell him! He’s going to love it.

“I’m Impressed With How Hard You Work”

If the person you’re seeing is a hard worker and you think that’s an attractive quality, make sure that you mention it next time work comes up or even his hobbies.

“I Love A Man Who Can _____”

Pumping up your man’s ego in a harmless way will go a long way to make him feel good about himself. If he’s doing something you’re into, let him know so he can keep doing it.

“You Smell Amazing”

Smell has such a huge connection to memory, so if your man smells nice, tell him so he keeps doing what he’s doing and you can commit that smell to memory.

We all have physical attributes we like about ourselves and ones that drew us to other people. Remind him once in a while that you like his eyes, hair, lips, shoulders—whatever!

“You Make Me Feel Safe”

Guys have it programmed in them to think that they have to take care of us. While we are strong and independent and don’t need someone to look after us, it’s OK to let someone help us sometimes and be grateful for it.

Remind them that you’re attracted to them and really into them! This is extra important if you’ve been in a relationship with someone for a while and have gotten used to your lives together.

OK, it might be hard to give this compliment seriously, but even if you do it jokingly after they do something nice for you, it will make them smile, especially if they ham it up.

“I Really Trust You”

Trust is tough to come by, especially in the dating world these days. So if you trust the person you’ve been dating and they’ve done nothing to take advantage of that trust, tell them.

“I Just Want To Hang Out With You”

Sometimes there is nothing better than hearing that the person you can’t stop thinking about can’t stop thinking about you, too, and wants to hang out with you as much as you want to hang out with them.

“You Always Know How To Make Me Smile”

If the guy you’re seeing is going out of his way to cheer you up or make you smile, it’s important to make a point of thanking them for it, especially if it’s because he’s been listening to what you tell him.

“I Want To Spend Forever With You”

Alright, yes, this one is a little aggressive if you’ve just started dating someone, but if you’re starting to get those great big feels for someone, put yourself out there and be vulnerable!

“I’m Always Here For You”

There is nothing more important than reminding the person you’re with that you have their back, just like they have yours. It should go without saying, but a verbal reminder is always nice.
