If there is one thing that drives men nuts, it is trying to figure out what a woman really wants to hear. Most men know that compliments should work, but working out the right compliment to use is not as easy as it sounds, because, if a compliment is said in the wrong way, it will just seem insincere and mean nothing.
So guys, if you feel that you always seem to put your foot straight in your mouth, every time you open it, read these ten things that we know girls absolutely like to hear.
1. The truth
One of the most important things girls like to hear is the truth. This is more than just a cliché, this is a fact! Don’t spin stories of how the dog ate her birthday card, or how the Amazon delivery guy got mugged in your street on his way to deliver her birthday gift. Tell her the truth and admit that you forgot it was her birthday and then say you are sorry too! She won’t be impressed by your temporary amnesia, but she’ll be even less impressed by a lie that she will see straight through anyway.
2. “You are the first real woman in my life”
Tell her that she is the first woman in your life that you have truly loved, and that will make her feel really special. Don’t make it sound like you have said it a million times before, to a million other women, though, or it will kind of lose its effectiveness!
3. “What do you think?”
This is another one of things girls like to hear. By asking for her opinion, and valuing it when you get it, you are showing a woman that you respect her and that you want to do things that will please her. Ask her what car colour you should get next time, or which model, and ask for her opinion when you are buying clothes. You know that she has an opinion, so let her express it, and she’ll love you all the more for doing so.
4. You’re the best friend I have ever had
It’s important for a woman to know that she is liked and trusted, as well as loved and, strangely, they can be two different things. She doesn’t expect you to take her everywhere, but she will love it, if you involve her in all of your life and share things with her.
5. Wow! You look gorgeous!
Another one of things girls like to hear is a compliment. Notice when she does something different to her hair and notice when she is wearing something new. Everyone loves compliments, not just women, so don’t be shy about giving her some! Tell her how much you appreciate all the effort that she puts into looking great for you. Compliments will also tell her that you are not interested in anyone else, so it will put her mind to rest on that score too.
6. Tell her how you feel
Don’t be afraid to tell her how you feel either, because that shows that you are being honest with her and that you trust her enough to open up to her. Tell her how much you love her, but also tell when you are scared. Sharing your innermost emotions with her can only bring you closer together.
7. I love it when you…
You know all those sweet little things that she does for you? Well, tell her that you do notice them and that you do appreciate her doing them. A little bit of appreciation never goes amiss, so don’t let all these little things that she does go unnoticed.
8. Come and meet my friends
Telling a woman that you want her to meet your friends is another one of those things girls like to hear and it shows her that you want her to be accepted by those friends and, it also shows her that you have no secrets to hide. She wants to be a part of your life, so let her in, and she will feel even closer to you then she did before.
9. “I love your smile”
It could be her smile, it could be her laugh, or it could be her eyes, but do tell a woman that you appreciate something else about her, more than just her boobs! There is a lot more to love about a woman, than just the usual stereotypical parts of their body. Let a lady know that she is loved for more than that, she deserves it.
10. Tell her you love her!
This is one of the most important things girls like to hear. Stop beating around the bush and tell her straight. If you love her, then tell her that you love her. Don’t, whatever you do, leave it too late to let her know that one. It’s probably just what she wants to hear.
