The card reads “Hey Hot Stuff”.
Why not make someone’s day extra special with it.
Compliments make us feel good — both giving and receiving them.
Feeling valued and appreciated are basic human needs, explains Marcia Naomi Berger, a licensed clinical social worker and psychotherapist in San Rafael, California, and author of “Marriage Meetings for Lasting Love: 30 Minutes a Week to the Relationship You’ve Always Wanted“.
Appreciation is also foundational in relationships, both those with our partners and spouses and with our friends, Berger adds. It’s part of what makes us want to cooperate and collaborate with those around us. And if you come to a challenge, knowing that you’re appreciated helps you want to work through and overcome that challenge.
Paying someone a compliment can also be a good conversation starter — or a good way to get over an awkward bump in a conversation — whether it’s a conversation with someone you know or have just met.
The best compliments are specific. They refer to character traits, behaviors, or appearance, Berger says. (Yes, we all tend to like to know that we’re viewed as attractive, she says.) Hearing that someone thinks you’re smart or kind or pretty is nice to hear, but those compliments apply to a lot of people. Calling out something specific shows the other person you’re interested and paying attention.
Rather than just telling someone they look nice, tell that person: “You look so handsome in that blue shirt you’re wearing. It matches your eyes.”
