    Of course we compliment our boyfriends, but I think many girls decide not to do it a lot for fear of being seen as 'clingy' or something. Girls compliment their men a lot in more subtle ways as well; boosting their egos.

    Also, being complimented all the time is very off-putting. Occasional compliments can be nice; but its much better to have a partner who'll challenge and match you - who you can banter with - than someone who'll shower you with compliments and think you're the best thing since sliced bread.

    i a man was my boyfriend then i'd be more inclined to compliment him.
    i feel sometimes that complimenting a man too much who isn't your boyfriend is a bit weird and might freak them out.
    maybe i'm wrong, enlighten me

    Most girls I know complement their partners on the same basis, maybe even more so.

    I'm seeing a bloke now. I always tell him how hot he is, how cool his hair is and how clever he is. I have to stop myself from doing it as it makes me sound like an idiot.
    He on the other hand compliments me in a more measured way. Damn being measured. Gush those compliments and worship me, fool!
    I love big willies too :fan:

    I think OP has a point. It does seem easier to compliment girls than guys imo.
