Any Guy Can Tell You You’re Beautiful — Wait For The One Who Makes You FEEL Beautiful

Anyone can tell you that you’re beautiful, but it takes a real guy to make you FEEL it. While you obviously want your partner to feel attracted to you, there has to be more than physical or sexual chemistry. Instead of settling for a guy who calls you hot or sexy every now and then, aim for a guy who treats you like this:

  1. He notices the little things. Love is in the details, and a guy who notices the little things about you is really showing you how much he values you. He’ll notice when you’re rocking a different clothing style or makeup look, and he’ll tell you how good you look. It’s really the feeling of being seen that makes you feel like a million bucks.
  2. He smiles at you when you enter a room. Whether you’re walking into a restaurant, a club, or your home at the end of the day, this guy smiles like he’s seeing your beauty for the first time. He’s not immune to how beautiful you look even though he sees you all the time.
  3. He makes you feel good when you feel you’re lacking. You don’t always feel good when you’re in sweatpants and your hair’s not done, but that’s when your guy will tell you that you’re gorgeous. It shows you that he sees you as beautiful no matter how you look instead of just when you’re dressed to kill for a night out. In fact, he might even tell you that he prefers how you look when you’ve done less with your appearance.
  4. He gives you unique complimentsBeing told you’re beautiful all the time can start to feel boring after a while. But a guy who really finds you gorgeous will tell you what specific things he likes about you, such as your creative spirit, how you see beauty in the world, or the way your eyes change color in the light.
  5. He plays with your hair in public. You’re talking to your friend when you feel your boyfriend’s fingers running through your hair. This gentle caress makes you feel so loved, which in turn makes you feel like he just can’t keep his hands off you. He truly finds you irresistible.
  6. He kisses you when you least expect it. When you’re concentrating on something else and your BF comes over to give you a kiss, it’s an instant mood-booster and takes you back to the early days of dating when you couldn’t keep your hands off each other. Kissing also brings you closer to each other, making you really feel the love.
  7. He doesn’t rush foreplay. Taking the time to please you instead of just rushing through foreplay to get to the main event can make you feel really pampered. He loves your body, flaws and all, and wants to worship it just the way it is.
  8. He’s chivalrous. What makes small acts of chivalry so great is that they make you feel respected, cared for, and beautiful. Something simple such as throwing his jacket over your shoulders when the weather is cold or gently taking your hand to help you walk in heels over cobblestone roads is often all it takes to make you feel like a goddess.
  9. He’d rather be with you than anyone else. Of course it’s healthy for you and your BF to have space in your relationship and spend time with other people, but times when he chooses to chill out with you instead of hitting the town with his boys can make you feel like you’re the most special part of his life.
  10. He makes you laugh. If a guy can make you laugh, he can make you feel beautiful. He puts in the effort to wash away stress you’re feeling.
  11. He knows what you need. When you’ve had a day from hell, this guy will know what you need to feel good about yourself and beautiful again. This doesn’t have to be something big – just listening to your drama makes all the difference. When you feel totally safe and able to express yourself completely, that’s often all you need to feel pretty even when you have mascara tears running down your face.
  12. He gives you “that look.” You’ll be talking about something casual, and your guy will suddenly give you a sexy gaze that tells you just how gorgeous he finds you. He can’t peel his eyes off you, and no words are needed to get that message across.
  13. He doesn’t perve over other women. It’s natural for guys to notice other pretty women around, but when this guy is with you, you have his full attention. He’s not going to be leering at women he sees or making you feel like you’ve got to flag him down to get his attention. He’s focused on you. A literal supermodel could walk into the room, and she might get a glance or two, but then he’ll be giving you his undivided attention. Other women are just like images in a magazine; they can’t sway him from seeing you as the most wonderful person in his world.
