They keep the romance alive. It’s easy to get wrapped up in the monotony of every day life and let the romance get sucked out of your relationship. Taking the time to compliment your partner is like stopping to smell the roses. It reminds you that your partner is special and they get to hear why you think they’re so great. It makes you both feel good and helps to keep the spark alive.
They promote communication. Talking to your partner and telling them something that you love about them is simply another way in which you are talking and communicating. When it comes to relationships, the more communication the better. Starting out a conversation with a compliment to your partner sets the stage for great communication.
They show that you care. When your partner is down and out, a compliment is a great way to show them that you care and that you support them. Let them know that you think they are wonderful, even if they are going through a tough time. It reminds them that you are on their team.
They set a good example. Paying lots of compliments to your partner is a great way to set a good example for them to follow. Hopefully they’ll see how often you compliment them and love how it makes them feel and they’ll want to return the favor to you.
They are positive reinforcement. You can use compliments as a tool for motivating changes in your partner. If you’ve asked them to change their behavior or do something differently, it’s important to praise their efforts and compliment them to reward their positive behavior.
