What Your Partner Compliments You On Reveals What They Value The Most In Your Relationship

They're not just words. They reveal what your partner is most grateful for in your relationship and how you make them feel.

To feel seen and noticed in a relationship is part of feeling loved. Each time your partner takes a moment to compliment you, it shows what they pay attention to and the fact that they do take the time to appreciate having you in their life. When you take a closer look at the compliments they give you, you'll be able to see what they truly value in you and the relationship. Here's what it means when your partner mostly compliments you on the following.

1. On your passionate side

If your partner compliments you on the passion you bring to the relationship or how intimate they feel with you, it shows how they value feeling connected to you. When you see them give you compliments like "you are my soulmate" or "you make every moment so worthwhile", it shows how they find it extremely important in maintaining their connection with you. Giving you compliments like this shows how they find your emotional bond so special and that you complete each other. Ideally, your partner should also be able to make you feel complete as well where they put in the same effort as you to make you feel like every moment spent with them is worthwhile.

2. On your looks

If your partner usually compliments you on the way you look, it shows how it's important for them to make you feel beautiful or handsome. When they say things like "you look so wonderful in that new shirt" or "you look great in those PJs", it shows that they are still physically attracted to you and that the old spark is still very much alive. When they say "you look amazing" even when you're not dressed up, it shows that your partner always wants you to feel confident and good about yourself and that you will always be beautiful or handsome to them. Ideally, when your partner is also able to see the other traits that you come with, such as humor, selflessness, or intelligence, it's a sign of how they can connect with you on different levels apart from physical attraction.

3. On the way you make them feel

If your partner gives most of their compliments on the way they make you feel, it shows how they value feeling safe and secure in the relationship. When they usually give you compliments like "you make me feel so special" or "you always make me feel comforted", it shows how at ease they feel in the relationship. It shows how they have put their trust in you and they feel free to share anything with you because you have built a relationship together where you both feel the warmth. Ideally, your partner should also make you feel like you can blindly trust them in the relationship so that you, too, feel at home because you both share the same feelings.

4. On your personality 

If your partner typically compliments you on your personality, it shows how they cherish every bit of the person you are. When they usually give you compliments like "you are so funny" or "you are so brave", it shows how they've fallen in love with your personality just as it is and they wouldn't want to change a thing about you. In their eyes, you're perfect and the traits of yours that they pick out and compliment you on shows what they cherish most about you. Ideally, it doesn't matter whether you both have opposite personalities or complementary personalities. But what really matters is that you both love and appreciate the strengths that you both come with and look past the flaws.

5. On the everyday things that you do 

If your partner usually gives you compliments about the everyday things that you, it shows how they are extremely grateful for the partnership that you both share. When they give you compliments such as "you are the best pie-baker" or "you are such a great parent", they know how much you do for the relationship and they are appreciating you for all of it. Ideally, you both should be bearing the weight of the relationship equally. For instance, if you're going with doing the kids' homework, they should take care of dinner. When you both share the responsibilities of the relationship, it shows how you both are working together and work as a team, pushing each other on to make things work.
