Stroking a Man’s…Ego

Complements for Men

Entrenched gender stereotypes would have you believe that compliments and flattery are strictly a means for men to show affection and appreciation towards women. Sure, women love compliments, but they’re not the only ones. Men enjoy them, too, and maybe that’s not much of a surprise. However, it’s the reasons that men enjoy compliments that might be news to you.

Near the top of the list? He’s insecure on occasion, and let’s face it – friendly reminders of what you appreciate about him are never a bad thing, either.

By nature, men are supposed to fulfill their role as confident, strong and unwavering beings. Sure, gender roles have slacked in recent years. But, that doesn’t mean that men have lost the sense that they’re expected to be rock-solid, through and through.

The problem, though, is that the modern male is less sure of his social standing than ever before. And, it’s important to remind him that you value who he is, regardless of the circumstances.

Compliments aimed at his sense of humor and work ethic are gold, so long as their genuine. Sure, men perceive there to be value in what they can provide, but to know that you appreciate who they are means more to him than you could imagine.

Of course, compliments of the intimate nature are encouraged, too. And don’t be afraid to be specific. If you like something that he does to you, tell him exactly what it is. Not only will it stroke his ego, but it also guarantees that he’ll be going out of his way to do it again and again.

Whatever you do, don’t be afraid to compliment him. If you think he doesn’t need it, think again.
