Men, do you honestly love your wife or girlfriend because she’s attractive or looks good in that hot blue mini-dress? No, you love her because she is a strong, funny, kind woman, as well as being the most amazing person that you have ever met. Plus, you absolutely want her to know all that.
The more you offer your female lovers and friends appearance-based compliments, the more it perpetuates the lie that a woman’s physical attributes are the most crucial characteristics she can offer the world.
Now is the time to fight back against this lie, one intelligent compliment at a time!
Clearly, men may find it tough or awkward to think of compliments that aren’t appearance-based as maybe that’s all they know.
Yet, any self-assured women would much rather receive any of the following compliments instead of the old cliché of “you look pretty.”
- you inspire me
- you make me laugh
- you light up the room
- you are intelligent
- I am proud of you
- you have had an impact on me
- you’re a great friend
- you’re a kind person
- you are brave
- you make me feel happy
