14. OFF-HAND COMPLIMENTS
Complimenting your partner doesn’t always have to be a production. While it can be used to foster communication, and enhance things in the bedroom, it can also be done casually. After all, compliments only take a moment – let your partner know that you appreciate them in all the little things that they do.
15. INTIMATE COMPLIMENTS
While sexy compliments are good for spicing up your time in the bedroom, intimate compliments are more about affirming how safe you feel sharing that part of yourself with your partner. Letting your partner know what you like and complimenting them on how well they respond to your needs intimately will help the both of your grow closer together.
Relationship therapist Jean Fitzpatrick, LP, says, “Compliments serve as deposits in a couple’s emotional savings account, so that you have a foundation to draw on when tough times or conflicts arise.” Learning how to compliment your partner will make them feel seen, validated and special.
Even if all you’re doing is complimenting something that they’ve done a hundred times – like the way they make tea – falling in love all over again with your partner is a beautiful thing, and the right compliments will make it easier than ever.
