Girls, how often do you tell your significant other that they are attractive? How often do they tell you?
Guys, how often do you tell your significant other that they are attractive? How often do they tell you?
I'm just wondering if anyone else has issues with their significant other never paying them compliments. My boyfriend tells me I'm pretty like once a month if I'm lucky. I've talked to him about it but that made no difference. I know it's silly to be annoyed by that, but it's just nice to hear. I am a female after all!

If I had a boyfriend, I'd probably say it every once in a while. I'm not a huge fan of over complimenting, since I feel like that just kills the purpose. But you know, if he put extra effort into looking good or if I found him to look slightly better one day than during most days, I'd definitely compliment him and tell him that I think he's handsome/sexy/good looking.
I feel like a lot of girls actually don't realize how much a compliment can affect a guy. It seems like a lot of girls expect their boyfriend to constantly shower them with compliments, while they don't have to give nothing in return. Complimenting is not essential in a relationship, of course, but it's the little things that count. A compliment here and there really does make most people extra happy, especially if it's genuine and not overdone.
And yeah, if I had a boyfriend, I'd expect him to put in as much effort as I am. Meaning, I'd like to hear a genuine compliment every once in a while. Nothing over the top, just him noticing whenever I've put more effort into looking good and so on.
It sucks that your boyfriend doesn't like giving you compliments... but hey, at least it's better to have him compliment you once a month genuinely than compliment you every day forcefully, right? Also, he might just have a different love language than you. While you seem to like compliments, he might like a different method more that you haven't been paying attention to.
