You Will Need
- Targeted praise
- Sounds of sexual satisfaction
- Masculine words
Make him feel strong
Acknowledge it when he does something that demonstrates physical strength. Men like to be thought of as powerful.
Let him know he's good in bed
Let him know he's good in bed – without expressly saying it. "That was great," sounds canned. But a well-placed moan or shiver can speak volumes about his sexual prowess.
Laugh at his jokes
Laugh at his jokes. Men spend a lot of time trying to make women laugh, so frequent and hearty chortles are taken as great compliments.
Praise his breadwinning ability
Tell him he's good at his job, or commend his ability to provide for his family. Men's egos are very much tied to their careers and their breadwinning capabilities.
Avoid feminine words
Whatever you compliment him on, make it sound manly. Men don't want to be told they have a "cute" or "sweet" anything; they want to hear about their "strong" and "tough" attributes.
Be generous with praise
If you're in a relationship, praise your guy often. Nearly 70 percent of men polled say they wish they received more compliments from their partner.
