Women are accustomed to receiving compliments, from the street whistler (gag!) to the random at the bar to the sincere guy we are dating. However, aside from the mouths of their mamas, men are rarely on the receiving end of a sweet sentiment from a beautiful woman. So a girl who can fire off a meaningful compliment will separate herself from the pack.

Here are some warm fuzzies guaranteed to heat him up, and who knows you may even get a compliment in return:

“Boy, you can work it!”

Compliment your man on his talents, be it in the kitchen, in the bedroom (this is definitely at the top of his list!), in the gym or in the garage. A guy wants to hear how good he is at the skills he works hard to perfect.

“You make me feel so (safe, beautiful, happy, horny or anything that is a direct reflection of his efforts).”

This is one of the most sincere compliments you can give your man and one of the most deeply appreciated because it is heartfelt. A guy who likes you is trying hard to make you feel good so let him know it is working.

“OMG! You are so freaking hot! I love your (insert specific physical attribute here such as eyes, smile, abs, shoulders).”

It is one thing to tell a guy that he is good looking, but telling him specifically what makes him so dreamy, will give his ego an extra little lift. And when you serve up this accolade, gently touch the body part you are applauding to add extra sizzle to your compliment.

“I love spending time with you.”

This compliment shows a guy that you like him not because of who he is on the outside — his looks, his status or his money, but that you like him, because of who he is on the inside.
