Just like girls, guys like to be complimented too. They want to see that you’ve noticed if they have done something with their hair, beard or if they’re wearing their favorite T-shirt.
Yes. They want you to notice it and to acknowledge it to them. They want you to appreciate their efforts to look their best.
It is not a coincidence that guys are more worried about complimenting girls than girls are worried about complimenting them. Society has put pressure on guys to behave their best, to look their best and to shower girls with compliments because if they do, success is guaranteed.
Guys also want to feel appreciated, respected and understood.
Most of the time, guys are in girls’ shadows because if a man shows that he’s insulted about not receiving a compliment, he will be considered weak and feminine. And guys are really sensitive when it comes to this. They don’t want to appear weak or needy in front of the girl they like.
They are taught to be tough and masculine and that is the main reason why their need to be complimented is neglected most of the time. If you really like him, don’t ever hesitate to compliment him. If you do compliment him, you will make him feel special and guys like to feel important and unique just like women do.
TOP 20 COMPLIMENTS FOR GUYS

2. I love how you always make me smile.
Guys love when they are able to make you smile. It’s in their nature to climb the highest mountain if needed, just to make you smile. So, do him a favor and smile and don’t forget to praise his humorous side.
3. I always feel protected when I’m with you.
Just like they love seeing you smile, they also love seeing you protected. A guy will do anything for you to feel comfy and protected when you’re with him and the least you can do is confirm that he’s succeeded in making you feel protected.

Yes, guys want you to notice the color of their eyes. They might pretend that they are not superficial and they don’t care about eyes at all (because it’s a feminine thing), but believe me, they do.
