    My DH compliments me a lot, esp when I'm not dressed up which is sweet. These are genuine feelings for him but he also knows it means a lot to me. I don't compliment him as much as he does me.

    We both read the '5 Love Languages' - saved/improved our marriage hugely!!! Explains how people like to receive love in different ways. Either through:
    - acts of service
    - gifts
    - words of affirmation
    - physical touch
    - quality time

    Most people have approx 2 that mean a lot to them. Anyway, long story short, my hubby and I are opposites in how we communicate love so the book helped us realize how to make our partner feel loved. It REALLY helped!!

    I am finding this thread both interesting and entertaining.

    My hubby always tells me "You're stunning". "You have a great body". (I've had a double mastectomy, and partial reconstruction, due to breast cancer, so he is clearly insane). But I think "Yeah, whatever, if you love me so much, why can't you put your undies in the hamper, hang the bath-mat up after your shower, generally put your sh!t away, etc".

    So yes, I'm all about "acts of love".

    Haha! My hubby always compliments my body and generally how I look - I think ageing eyesight is working to my advantage

    Mine compliments himself so there is no need for me to do it

    As for me he said yesterday I look great. His contacts must be failing as I'd been up all night with new ds2, smelt like breastmilk, had baby chuck on me, hair was a mess and in a pony tail and I still had my pjs on from the night before

    @yadot did you work out which of the 5 love languages relates to you and your husband ? Make sure you get him to do the questionnaire. Xx hope you're well.
