When you’ve been with your significant other for a long time, it’s pretty easy to start taking them for granted and forgo giving them compliments. However, if you want your relationship to last, experts say it’s essential to keep complimenting your partner.
While any genuine compliment is much appreciated, it’s important not to limit yourself to just one specific thing like their looks, because when you compliment your partner on more than just one aspect of themselves, it shows that you really appreciate who they are as a whole. Here are other things to compliment your partner on:
The Little Things They Do For You Each Day
The little regular day to day everyday things really do matter. If you notice that your partner goes out of their way to make your life easier in even the smallest of ways, make sure they know how thankful and appreciative you are.
How They Make You Feel
Make it a point to tell your partner that they make you happy when they do and you can keep your relationship at a good place.
Complimenting your partner’s values is important because you’re complimenting your partner’s character. This includes their kindness, honesty, hard work or optimism.
It is reassuring to hear that your partner finds you attractive. If you want to make it more meaningful, be specific by complimenting something unique that they possess.
Their dreams and passions
It’s important to not just support your partner’s dreams and goals, but also for your partner to know that you believe in them. You can show this by complimenting them on their talents, skills and abilities.
Things That Make Them Feel Insecure
Everyone has some insecurities. Complimenting something that your partner is insecure about or sees as a flaw can help to build your their self-esteem and remind them of how much you love them wholly.
