I can say that a compliment is a food of heart. For me, compliment is appreciation. It brings you energy, motivation and it boost your self-esteem. Compliment is very important in once life especially on those times that you feel so down. Compliment lifts your heart, brighten your day, and makes you feel good. It feels very rewarding to be complimented. It is very important in once life. Much more in a relationship, being complimented by the one you love really gives you a special feeling. It helps in strengthening and maintaining a happy relationship. Saying compliments to the one we love makes him/her feel that we really love them. We should appreciate every good things our partner have shown, as well as other good characteristics he/she possess. For me, in a relationship, compliments is also important. How about you, how important compliment is in your life or relationship?

Hi. Harold_ks. It is very important. It makes a person feel good when they are complimented. If someone says something nice to me, I will enjoy hearing it. Especially when I am down and sad. A compliment makes my day start off right. I also feel as if I can take upon anything that life brings upon me as well.

hi cream I do so agree and when you or someone else compliments your children don't their faces just light up and shine. Kids like to be complimented so much and it has a really positive effect on them.

@cream97, You are definitely right since that is also what I personally experienced every time someone is saying nice things to me or complimenting me or my actions or creations. I totally agree in all you mentioned. Thank you for your response. @Hatley, Hi! It's nice to see you here. Yes, kids really need compliments and it will help them to grow as a better individuals. And complimenting kids doesn't only bring joy to them but to their parents as well. =)

I think that it is great if anyone gets a compliment from anyone, but more so from the person that you are with in your relationship.I think that it makes the person feel great when they get a compliment, as well as for the person who gives a person a compliment.

Not much. I mean, I have a good enough self-esteem that compliment is not needed to provide validation for myself. Although in my relationship, I like being complimented by my man and it makes me feel good about myself. But if they do not give out compliment, then I do not necessarily switch into self-doubt mode, though.

Yes, even how confident we are or how much good are self-esteem is, we still feel the pleasure every time someone give us a compliment. In a relationship, I don't think it will go a long way without compliments because love must be the reason of entering it and if you love a person, it means you admire him/her, and admiration releases compliments. Well, good thing that you have built a good self-esteem. Thank you for your response.

I do like receiving compliments from my partner but first you need to be able to look and feel good because it won't be long until that person catches your vibe and take notice. ;)

Compliments are important in any relationship. Like you said, it makes you feel good and you feel appreciated. In the begining of my relationship, my ex used to compliment me all of the time. Towards the end he stopped, and that probably has something to do with why he is now my ex.

Compliments really makes us feel loved that's why it's really important in a relationship. A relationship without compliments will not really be good anymore because it means there's also no more admiration, an important ingredients of love. You just did a good decision of ending it and search for an everlasting one. Thank you for your response.

I must really totally agree. for a person who is lacking self confidence like me. I can really relate to this. Since i can remember. I lack self confidence and always feel shy around people. I always thought that maybe something is wrong with me or I'm just now good enough. but an occasional boost and appreciation is really a big factor for me. even the tiniest things I did good and see or feel or hear that someone appreciates it really makes my heart melt and I extend a great gratitude to the person who makes me feel good about myself. I love appreciating others. the smallest things they do for me, I do appreciate and it makes me feel good to compliment ones good traits.

Yes, compliment can really boost one's self confidence. It gives them courage and confidence to live better. We must remember that all people has a positive side, don't feel so down coz i know you also has a lot of good qualities. Look at your avatar, it's a pic of a couple, being in a relationship means being appreciated and admired. Yes, I also like those people who knows how to appreciate things, coz compliment is really a heart-booster. It will keep one's heart healthy. Thank you for your response. Have a nice day!

Compliments can really brighten up a day between the couple, with our family. For me it's a reminder, thanks! I haven't complimenting lately but I'll do right today.

I am a firm believer that a compliment is very important to any life and relationship. It is not the quantity but the quality of the compliment. It may just be that little bit of gratitude and kindness that gets us through our days.

in relationships, indeed compliments hold a special place :)did you know, that complimenting others is actually a strategy to connect with people or an ice breaker too. if you speak to a stranger, you can compliment them about say their shoes and start talking about where they got them and which shops are the best for such designs etc.

For me, compliments are important. It helps me to decide which way is the best for me. I sometimes helps me to clear up my mind about certain topics and I also feel important too. I trust compliments from my parents and my close friends. It also helps me boost my self-esteem and improve more of my qualities and characteristics. I also adore to people who can speak there mind to me.

I feel as if compliments have no effect on me because I don't have an efficient amount of self confidence. So it doesn't matter if someone was to call me pretty or that I look nice because it doesn't change the way I see things when I look in the mirror. They give can me compliment in my head I see it as they're just saying that to be nice or they don't want to hurt my feelings.

hi Harold compliments are important to all of us young and old , married and single or living to gether. We all need that little boost of being told we are somebody and we are unique to. Husbands and wives who take a moment to compliment each other on their looks or work or whatever become even closer. It feels so good for anyone specially your lover to tell you you are really appreciated. It costs nothing but pays big dividends and we all should be able to do that.Compliments are like frosting on the cake of marriage,so sweet and so delicious to get.

Indeed compliment really entice our life, lift up our spirit and makes our heart smile but we have to bear in mind that a compliment is just a BONUS of what we do to make us happy for our own purpose because if our reason is for compliment? we might end up frustrated. DO THINGS THAT MAKES YOU HAPPY AND OTHERS SAW IT THEY WILL REWARD YOU WITH GENUINE COMPLIMENT. ***WE MUST ALSO BE AWARE OF WHAT COMPLIMENT IS SINCERE***
