Compliments

The do's and don'ts of compliments - what say you? ?Compliments, us women love them. I wonder if our men folk love them equally?….

Compliments, us women love them. I wonder if our men folk love them equally?

What does the lady in your life want to hear? I am trying to list 'genuine' compliments/words not the 'I want to get you in the sack corn'. A light-hearted and serious look at things we sometimes say to one another.

Genuine from our men-folk

You look stunning.
Hairdresser did an amazing job hun.
How pretty are you looking right now.
I so wish you would believe me when I tell you that you have a great figure.
You are the greatest mum.
Being with you would have to be one of the smartest things I have done in my life.
That dinner/lunch/breakfast was amazing.
Woah, that dress is gorgeous on you.
I love you.

For the smarmy get in the sack type compliments/words...

I swear you want me make to want to put this TV control down.
I think you boobs are fantastic.
You sure I'm not living with a Victoria's Secret Model?
Your ass is so hot I could melt butter on it.
You cook better than my mum.
You are my porn.

For the men genuine perhaps...

My god you scrub up well in that suit.
Ok you have lost weight where's that stomach gone?
You are the greatest dad.
I couldn't be happier than when I am with you.
Jeans, T - Shirt... oh my ..ok I think you may get lucky ;-)
That hair style really suits you.
So glad I have a handy-man around the house.
Thank you for helping me out with the housework.
Thank you for cooking dinner.
I love you.

The smarmy version...

That orgasm made me scream in German - I don't even know German!
Is there any jar/can you can't open?
When you snore you remind me of the cutest, fluffiest Panda Bear.
I so don't mind you not helping me with the housework sweety..relax watch the game.
You've done how many push-ups...it shows.
Don't worry I'll mow the lawn, play your X Box.
Honestly babe, the toilet seat can be left up, doesn't worry me at all.
Johnny who?

I think both genders require and enjoy hearing 'genuine' compliments every now and then.

My darling man and I both still compliment one another when we are all 'dressed up' and even at times when we aren't. After 5 years if being together we thank each other for helping the other out. We say please and thank you and I love you. Too often it's the little words that have so much meaning, which sadly we simply can forget in our busy schedules. Taken for granted, which can sometimes lead to animosity, a little kind word here and there can only but help to improve relationships. Agreed? What do you say?

There doesn't have to be a 'reason', to show someone who you like/love. Simple things like taking pride in their appearance especially when you go out (ie doing your hair, having a shave - goes for both sexes) ;-) helping out with chores without having to be asked (both sexes).
We all have the need to feel special, to feel loved, to feel that we are worthy. We appreciate the little words that help us feel that way. There certainly doesn't have to be a reason to say I love you.



About the Writer

I am the Author of The Empty Nest- A Mother's Hidden Grief. (EPub) This is available through Lulu and Amazon. The memoir is the story of my life as a mother, with an emphasis on the unspoken grief, which accompanies the process of letting go of one’s children as they grow up. As much as a mother loves her children, she must endure, at many stages of their growth, the pain of losing them. The inevitable “cutting of the ties” culminates when the day arrives for her children to leave home. For many women, this time coincides with profound personal changes of menopause and fiftieth birthdays. My own recent experience of this process prompted me to revisit my life as a mother, and to delve into the journals which I had kept since I was pregnant with my two daughters, some twenty years ago. The journals reveal the learning curves of motherhood and I was able to use this material to form both the chronological backbone of the memoir, and to expose the “heart” of the story in the touching and personal moments that I had recorded. Here are the links if you are interested. http://www.lulu.com/shop/j-m-kadane/the-empty-nest-a-mothers-hidden-grief/ebook/product-20361003.html https://www.amazon.com/author/jmkadane
