admiration - partners - snow

We all like to receive compliments; if they’re sincere and heartfelt. There are such things as backhanded compliments, but we don’t like those at all. You can give superficial compliments and those are nice, but they’re not as impactful as giving a thoughtful and warm expression of admiration from your heart. It’s not enough to say “you look pretty” though that’s not a bad one, you might dig a little deeper and compliment her sense of style instead.

Here’s  a list of 10 ways for you to show your admiration to your partner.

  1. I’m so glad I met you

  2. I love how you take care of me

  3. I feel lucky to be with you

  4. You’re my favorite person

  5. You’re a great parent

  6. I admire your kindness

  7. You have a great way with people/animals

  8. I admire your patience

  9. You make me happy

  10. We’re a good match

I’m sure there are more if you but think about it. You can make a difference in your partner’s day by giving them a compliment that’s thoughtful and sincere. Try it and see if you don’t get a smile or hugs and a kiss in return.
