Maybe it’s just me, but I think most of us like to be complimented and acknowledged – especially by our significant others. What often happens after a couple has been together for awhile is they start to get a little lackadaisical in the compliments department. This is understandable, and exactly why I am writing this post!
Take a minute to observe your love interest – and tell them you are proud of them, or they look amazing, or lovely, or whatever works for you. This is such an easy thing to do, and has such a positive impact, I wonder why we don’t do it more often.
Even if you are a newer couple, noticing the little things about your partner, their new top, haircut, etc., just shows that you are tuned into them rather than in your own little world.
My best friend recently told me she asked her husband why he didn’t really compliment her anymore (and she is gorgeous, so I was stumped and curious to hear the answer). He replied, “Aren’t we past that?” Silly, silly, guy. We are never past that, and should never get to that place where we don’t try to acknowledge each other’s hotness!
A compliment is like a gift that lifts your partner up – so hand them out often and you may even start to get more back yourself. While you are at it, give them out to your friends as well. It will make the world a happier place.
