The memes about understanding them alone could fill archives.
Are they really that complex? Gents, the answer is no. Women are just like us: Most value honesty, loyalty, and respect.
How do you convey that respect with words? That's what we're here to discuss. We're going over the best compliments for women.
1. On Her Ambition
Women are achieving equality – not only in the household but in the professional sphere. This is why recognizing her drive is invaluable. If your wife/girlfriend is the ambitious type, these may help.
Try this one on for size: “Power looks good on you.” Bam – it's simple, to the point, and it validates her goals. I don't know about you, but nothing is sexier than a partner who supports ambition.
Another solid one is “You walk with such determination. It looks like you can take over the world.” Similar to our first option, but more fleshed out. This one shows you pay attention to her walk – and the right swagger is a powerful magnet (Both in men and women).
“You’re sexy even when you’re bossy.” If you ever feel like she's being overbearing, make it a positive scenario with this compliment. She might even ease up!
“Anyone would be lucky to have you on their team.” This may work on a close friend or your significant other. Like the first compliment, it validates her professional aims and makes it clear that you believe she should achieve them.
“You deserve the world.” This borders on cheesy, but it still works. It's a simple yet grand compliment that is well-suited for a woman on the rise.
2. On Her Beauty
Everyone wants to look good. Ladies are certainly no exception. Some of the best compliments for women are focused here, but there is a caveat. These vary heavily depending on what stage of the relationship you're in – common sense wins the day here.
“Every morning, you look more beautiful than the last.” This is powerful because most of us don't look our best rising out of bed. We're groggy, disheveled, and we have plague breath. By saying this – and meaning it – you let her know that the morning is a non-issue. Her beauty transcends sleep.
“You are absolutely, astoundingly gorgeous and that's the least interesting thing about you.” This one drives home her beauty better than any compliments I've seen. Best of all? You're telling her this while assuring her that her personality is what wins out at the end.
“Your lips always look kissable.” Men look at lips, and women take the time to apply lipstick or lip gloss in order to accentuate them. Not only are you confirming that part of her is sexy, but you're also implying that you want to get a little more intimate (tastefully of course).
“You look beautiful even when you don’t try.” Look at this from a stylish man's perspective. We strive to look great – even on our worst days. Wouldn't you love to have something similar told to you? Exactly…
“You have such nice eyes.” Inoffensive yet a little romantic. The eyes say a lot about a person, and this compliment works on us as well as the ladies.
3. On Her Style
As men's style enthusiasts, it's only right we recognize women for their efforts. We dress up to feel better about ourselves and catch the occasional compliment, and they are no different.
“Your outfit matches your eyes perfectly.” Simple and specific. We admire the details here at RMRS, and as far as compliments for women go, this one nails it.
“I’ve never seen anyone look so ready to kill it.” This is a little more general but kills two birds with one stone. You're combining her drive and her style in one!
“Your style is everything.” One all-encompassing comment that says she knows how to dress – not just at that moment, but for anything.
“Those shoes are stunning.” It shows you pay attention to the small details – but it also doesn't focus on anything inappropriate.
4. On You
What about you? You're important to her, so it stands to reason that she values your feelings. It pays to let her know how important she is to you.
“You’ve shown me a love I now can’t live without.” Why is this one so powerful? It delivers that sacred message: That you can't imagine life without her.
“You’re the first thought in my head each morning and my first priority for the rest of the day.” Specificity wins the day once more. This tells her that she's essential to you.
“I had the most romantic dream about you last night.” She's on your mind so much that you want her subconsciously? That's bound to make her feel warm inside.
“You have all my respect.” Profound and decisive – it lets her know that the person who matters sees her as his equal. Nothing beats that.
“I never knew what it meant to be a man until I met you.” Save this one for when you're in an established relationship and genuinely in love. After all, you're saying that your purpose wasn't clear until she came along – that's a big deal.
“I feel most alive by your side.” It showcases how intimately your lives are tied together. Never forget that you are partners in everything!
“You make me want to be my best.” She motivates you to be the best person you can be, what's better than that?
“You always know how to make me feel at home.” Your partner should make you feel comfortable as a cardinal rule. By saying this, you're confirming that she's done it.
“The more I learn about you, the more I fall.” She gets more interesting to you by the minute – it should make her feel better about opening up to you later.
5. On Her Good Time
We all have our harmless vices – steak, chocolate, and the occasional glass of wine. How do you figure in the compliments? It's easy…
“I love how well you handle your liquor.” Too much drinking is obviously a bad thing, but we're all adults here. Being able to hold your liquor is usually associated with strength and stamina. Who doesn't want that?
“What do you want to eat tonight? I’ll buy you whatever you want.” You're letting her choose dinner AND paying for it? You, sir, are a gentleman. She has nothing to lose and everything to gain. Best of all, you're making her feel comfortable about indulging a bit.
“I love your cooking.” If she enjoys cooking, that is. It has a dual purpose: It shows appreciation for a vital role she's fulfilling, and it lets her know she's good at it.
Gentlemen, at the end of the day, compliments require one thing: honesty. You need to mean what you say, or she'll know.
Go out there and make your lady feel great!
