Words are powerful. They can destroy, or restore, a relationship.
The little things we say to our partner can make her day, boost her confidence, bring you closer together, and better your relationship.
If you put a little thought into your words, you can make a huge difference in your relationship. In fact, knowing some of the right things to say to a woman can make a good relationship great.
Don’t be stingy with compliments. Better yet, know what to say and when to say it.
Here are 10 things she will love to hear from you.
1. “You look amazing.”
Every woman loves knowing that her man finds her attractive and noticed that she dressed up.
You’ll boost her confidence in herself, and in the relationship because you appreciate how she looks. Use this one when you’re leaving for a special occasion or date, or when she’s trying on clothes, or she’s trying to look nice.
If you notice she’s wearing a new scent, tell her she smells amazing.
2. “You’re so beautiful.”
This one is especially powerful if you tell her when she first wakes up, or any time when you catch her being beautiful without trying or knowing it.
Tell her when she’s not wearing makeup that she’s beautiful. If she’s all messy from working in the garden, and you like the way she smiles at you, tell her so.
It’s not always about the way she looks. When we’re in love with someone, we see beauty in what they do.
If she’s doing something she loves, pause and appreciate the beauty in that and tell her how beautiful she looks.
3. “You’re so smart.”
Women like to be complimented on more than their looks.
Imagine that your partner offers a suggestion and you realize it’ll help. Tell her, “You’re so smart!” It might be something simple or an issue between co-workers, but show your gratitude for her insight.
Sometimes you can tell her she’s smart even if she didn’t just say something.
4. “You know what I love about you?”
People enjoy hearing what others like about them. Your partner will love hearing what you specifically love.
This phrase is fun because it gets you thinking about all the little things you adore about her, and then you can let her know.
Be specific—what exactly do you love about her? Her laugh? Her smile? The way she hums while she works? The way she organizes the house? The way she listens intently?
5. “You’re right.”
Natural human instinct is to argue a point, even if we start to doubt it.
We’ll realize we’re wrong and continue to push our opinion.
Other times, we realize the other person is right, but we don’t acknowledge it.
In a relationship, it’s important to communicate, and to show the other person you value them. When she’s right, let her know.
You can use this when she makes a suggestion about something you’re doing. It doesn’t have to be during an argument. Just say, “Wow, you’re right. That’s a good idea.” And when you’ve disagreed but realized she’s right, go ahead and tell her then too!
It will stop an argument in its tracks. Usually, she’ll soften and try to see your perspective too.
Or it can end an argument and let you move on.
6. “We’re in this together.”
It’s so nice to know someone has your back.
If she’s dealing with something, you can make the situation so much easier.
She’ll know you’re committed to her and helping her.
You can say this when she’s facing something with her family, friends, financially, her health, or even her work.
7. “You’re the only one for me.”
This is what to say when you want to melt her heart. It shows your adoration, your love, and your commitment.
This is one of those romantic things that really brings you closer together and makes her feel in love with you, even if you’ve been together for years.
8. I’m proud of you.
Or, I’m proud to be your man. This is something everyone needs to hear.
It means so much to know your partner is proud of you.
Men need respect, but women also need to know that their partner is proud of them and proud that they’re together.
Tell her you’re proud of her when she does something amazing, when she gets a promotion, or just because.
9. What do you think?
Or, can I get your perspective on this? What do you think about this?
Women love it when you ask their opinion and show that you care about what they think. It’s also nice that you want their advice, and even nicer when you take it.
You’ll score big points for including her in decisions when you don’t need to, but you want to.
10. I need you.
One of the sweetest things I ever heard of was a man saying, “Need you, want you, love you.”
“I need you” is a way to let your woman know how much she means to you. Your partner will like to hear that you love her, but sometimes it’s nice to know that someone needs you too.
This says that she’s a part of you.
Knowing what to say and when to say it will put an extra sparkle in her eye. Try some of these in the following week, and watch what happens in your relationship.
