i have always thought that it was really important to make sure that i tell my girlfriend everyday that she is so beautiful and that she looks great because i honestly think that she does look really beautiful...i have always thought that it was a really important thing to do to let her know that i think that she is really beautiful and we have been in a relationship for six months and i have told her everyday...maybe its just because i am young(about to be 20)but i don't see myself ever stopping, but i was just wondering if you think its importnat? thanks for taking the time out of your day to read my discussion and hopefully answer it, i hope that you all had a great day and that the rest of your evening and night are great as well, have a great night and again thanks for reading!

One simple question: Do you like to get compliment from others especially from the one you love? Of course, you do. So, now you know the answer. The basic principle still apply here: "just do whatever you want other people do to you". The positive effect will be experienced not only by the person who gets the compliment but also by the person who give it. Do you feel the same way too? So, it's important and good for both side.

as long as it is an honest and sincere compliment, it's definitely fine..but remember beauty fades.. "what is essential is invisible to the eye"

hello... how sweet... I like men who are like that complimenting me in every way i do and the way I look, but sometimes the more often you say it, it seems like a routine and the honest appreciation seems lacking... complimenting is ok as long as it comes from the heart...

Of course it´s important.Just think how do you feel when someone compliments you, wouldn´t you like someone to feel that good and all because of yoy! And of course it should be from the heart and sincere! It´s very important to keep those kind of little things always alive in a relationship

yup.. compliment others is the great things to do, but people seldom do it. Even myself too find it awkward to compliment others unless he/she really deserve compliments from me. heheh...

When you really compliment others with your whole heart then its go ahead. I have met many people who just compliment others just for the sake of getting something from them like if they need money or if they need their help something they just give false praises and compliments to people, human has the tendancy to fall when they re comliments :) it applies to every man. My guy also says that im beautiful but i just dont care for it , i know he is not telling lies.. but then i dont fall for it lol.. I heard it somewhere that when we compliment someone with whole heart we would also get that compliment in us for instance you say your girl friend is beautiful day by day you will bcecome handsome :) So now it is very important to compliment other WITH WHOLE HEART..

I honestly think it is very important to compliment a person.It should be from the heart not just superficial.A genuine compliment makes one feel good by complimenting someone you will be brightening up their day.When someone compliments you, don't you feel good about it so just keep doing it to others.As you say you are young I hope this continues throughout.Some people never compliment they act if they simply can't.I always make it a point to compliment people.If i see someone wearing something nice and even if i don't know them i just go up to them and say that their dress looks very nice etc.i can never refrain from complimenting anyone.My younger sister has 3 son's they are 8,6 & 4.Everytime she dresses up they will come to her and tell her that she looks very good or the dress she is wearing is very nice.Its so cute to see them saying all the nice things to her.it will become a habit.Its very important to compliment others.Keep doing it.

Its not in complementing the nature. If you are living on a hill station and it is spring season. Daily you will see flowers and you will compliment Nature's beauty. So, in my opinion its not bad at all to compliment your girl friend on daily basis.

It is important in a way. But you don't have to coerce yourself to compliment your partner. I mean, don't be so conscious upon complimenting each other because that way, you will lose the sense of excitement between the two you since you are expecting too much for each other. It would be better to act yourself and be free to do what you want. The compliment between the two of you will just come out naturally.

I guess compliments is really important in a relationship. But of course, it must be authentic. I'm sorry about what I'm going to say but my opinion is that you should always remind your girlfriend that you love her but you do not need to remind her everyday that she is beautiful unless if she has self esteem issues. From my experience on my relationship of 3 years, you have to keep things fresh and new. If you saturated certain tasks like going to the mall, saying "you're beautiful" or "I love you". too much. It's essence is lost. It's better to have a boyfriend who tells me that I look like a scum in my bad hair days than someone who is like a sticky bug who tells me he's madly in love with me. It might be the ideal dream of some girls but that's not the case for me. "Beautiful" is a loaded term. Guys say it all the time. What matters is saying it when you mean it. That means there must be something (like a new haircut or a new dress) that makes you think your girlfriend is beautiful. Besides, beauty fades. Relationships should not be built on mere compliments. It is also build on criticisms and quarrels. As negative as it is to hear, with each trial you guys overcome, your relationship will grow deeper and stronger. I hope you don't take this negatively. I wish you all the best in your relationship.

Yes it is of crucial importance to give compliment to your girlfriend, because whatever girls say they still want to hear that they are beautiful, sweet, etc. After all we do think that for our girlfriends, so why not tell them. But be careful not to over do it, because tshe might think that you are just saying it, and not reall mean it. Girls what can we do when we love them.

hey, yeh its very important to compliment each other. talking from a woman's point of view and to me or any other woman receiving compliments or appreciation would really add to my confidence and bring the blush on my face. i think wht u doing is a very good job of complimenting her evryday...but i wud advise you if you can make is often rather than evryday would eb a good thing and than the compliemnts would have equal importance ...dont make things monotonous..as than she can think tht yeh he is juz saying it for the sake of it...and may not pay much of attention to them...

i think it is very much needed. without compliment, the bond of relationship does not become stronger. it make both of you feel good. so i think complimenting each other is nice gesture

That's good that you realized that at a young age. I believe that we must always let our partners feel good about themselves. It's a way of bringing the best out of our partners. Since, with these compliments, they could be more confident with themselves. Aside from telling the person how beautiful they are, I think we should also mention and acknowledge the little things that they do for us. This would make the bond of the relationship grow stronger. If we keep doing this even after we are with the person for a long time, this would keep the spark in the relationship alive.

[b]it isn't really that important but it would be a good gesture to compliment each other because it helps boost someones relationship. i always give compliments to my boyfriend and whenever he does the same thing to me out of the blue, it puts a smile on my face. the compliment may be bad or good but for sure a couple will surely take it by heart. stay happy and inlove. never change the things you normally do to your girlfriend. making her feel well loved and special is one thing she will surely never forget. happy posting and mylotting![/b]

For me, yes it's really important to compliment the other but it should be both of you sometimes. It helps your partner a lot, giving her self esteem,and feeling good with her self. I also think it adds sweetness with the relationship. Anyway have a nice day!
