I'm literally so confused by my boyfriend. I love him to bits but he never compliments me and I have to ask him if I look nice and he will say "you look fine".
He he can't seem to even say it when I'm with him, aside from that he criticises me a lot and I lose things because I put things down and they vanish and even if it doesn't effect him he will take the opportunity to tell me what an idiot I am and how I never learn and don't listen when he "tells" me to be more careful. I have to ask him to say thank you when I cook him dinner and if it's not up to scratch he makes comments. He even said "if you did what I said life would be easier" in a recent argument about me losing something.
It's not that I don't accept what has happened its that he's take any oppurtnity to have a go!
why is he so hard on me all the time?

Well I don't see why he shouldn't criticize your food if it tastes bad. Nor do I see to much of a problem with him criticizing you for being Irisponsible and losing things however those two things are completely besides the point and I think they were added to get pity points. Anyways to answer your original question most guys don't compliment constantly or very often at all because they don't have validation issues.0THIS IS NOT RELEVANT ANYMORE

Sorry to say.. But it sounds like he isn't happy in the relationship. My ex did this when he started cheating. It's a way to deflect everything on you, and make you seem like the problem so he doesn't have to look at himself.
Some men don't compliment often because they are shy, or they assume that you already know what they think... But they don't down right criticize constantly. A good guy would be happy that you made him dinner in the first place. Even if it was a fucking peanut butter and jelly. You may think you love this guy, but once you cut him loose and find somebody decent who treats you correctly you'll probably realize that this one was just an asshole, and then wonder what you saw in him in the first place.1THIS IS NOT RELEVANT ANYMORE
