Compliments for a guy to make his day great

Everybody loves hearing good and pleasant words about themselves: it’s an essential part of our nature, so everyone likes their efforts and advantages being seen and appreciated by others. Whether a person is very dependent on what people think of them or not, it’s always pleasant to hear nice things: when you have a great outfit, a nice haircut or you’ve done a great amount of work you will be happy to hear someone telling you that you’re smart, strong, talented and determined. When we hear some proofs of our ability to do things fine, we become a bit happier and more confident - the only rule these compliments follow is that they should be sincere and honest.

Compliments for men are not a very common thing: somehow in our modern culture compliments have become something which belongs mostly to women. Though in conservative beliefs men are expected to work harder than women and to try harder and harder every day, they are also seen as people who shouldn’t expect any praises or commendations. At the same time, lots of men are pretty emotional and sensitive people: dating an Italian man is usually associated with romance and passion, so why should other men be different? Being strong and independent is great, but sometimes it’s hard to keep your confidence, enthusiasm and energy at the same level without a fuel which can make you stronger and happier. Some people need recognition more than others: those who are involved in creative professions or start their way in learning new things often need a good word to feel better about themselves and the results of their work. A sensitive and emphatic partner can become a person who gives you the strength to work again and again - and a compliment is a great tool to achieve that.

It’s hard to believe that some people might not understand the fact that men also have feelings and therefore love hearing good things about their accomplishments and good qualities: we’re all humans with different levels of openness and intensity of emotions we show, but deep inside our hearts we all want to be accepted and liked. There are lots of men who receive only a few compliments in their lives and they remember these words all their lives: this only shows how important a good and sincere compliment is. Being kind to other people makes them believe in themselves - and people who believe in their abilities and strength can achieve amazing things in life.

Why is it important for men to receive compliments

There are lots of reasons why people give compliments to the others and why they love receiving them: kind and encouraging words can not only improve our mood and self-esteem but also show us that we’re strong enough to achieve anything we want. A nice word can not only improve a person’s day but also be remembered for years and decades because of how powerful it is. People see a compliment as a source of energy and confidence, so it’s absolutely normal to like them and to give them to others. You can always cheer up your partner after a bad day with nice words, you can help them to be more optimistic and enthusiastic, you can reduce their unconfidence and anxiety. Though some people are very unsure in their skills, knowledge and talent, they can have all these things with the help of their closest people believing in them and loving them.

Giving a person compliments about their accomplishments makes them happier not only because it makes them understand that their hard work is noticed and liked by people around, but also it shows them that they’re working in the right direction. Sometimes it’s hard for a man to value or to rate his work because they feel like they can’t be objective and competent, and also lots of people become too tired after their work to recognize any good or bad parts of it. If you want to cheer your man up, then tell him that he’s working really hard and you like the result: it can make him not only happier but also less tired and more enthusiastic about his work.

Giving a person compliments about their accomplishments makes them happier.

Another reason to compliment a man who is important to you is to show him that he’s loved and cared for: though men are often seen as less emotional and more reserved, they actually have lots of feelings and emotions raging inside them. Boys are often told that they shouldn’t show their sensitive and soft side, and that’s why lots of men feel that they have to act like they don’t care or they don’t even need to be loved and cared for. Show your man that he’s an important part of your life and you love and value him: this can make him even stronger and more dedicated to his work, and also it will give him even more reasons to love and value his partner. The emotional side is important in everyone, so make your man understand that he shouldn’t pretend to be a stone when he’s with you.

While women often received compliments dedicated to their beauty, femininity or kindness, men often have other qualities which are highlighted by compliments they receive. Men are often praised by their strong character, charisma, leadership skills, intelligence, physical strength and willpower. These things are important for women as well, but they are often associated with traditional images of perfect masculinity and how a man should look or behave like. If you really want to make a guy proud and happy, then highlight his masculine side: though it’s not the only thing which is important in men, they love hearing about their typical men’s traits.

Unfortunately, lots of men are complimented not because they are polite, tactful, sensitive, sincere or kind: somehow, most of these features tend to be prominently feminine features.

Though it’s definitely not forbidden to compliment a handsome guy’s appearance or his kind heart, there are some topics which are much more popular in terms of compliments for guys. Unfortunately, lots of men are complimented not because they are polite, tactful, sensitive, sincere or kind: somehow, most of these features tend to be prominently feminine features. At the same time, you can use these great personality qualities to compliment a man, but try to combine them with typically masculine features: a guy can be strong and kind, intelligent and tactful, determined and tender at the same time.

Admiring a man’s great qualities has lots of positive effects on his self-awareness, behaviour and confidence because we tend to stick to things which are liked by the others assuming that improving our best sides can make us even more likeable and successful. Tell a man that he’s kind and he’ll become even kinder, tell him that he’s strong and can achieve anything he wants - and he’ll work even harder to prove that a compliment is well-deserved. There are some examples of things you can say to your guy to make his day brighter:
