    Like jhayward, I agree with most of the article, but again - I don't want to be misled. Honest appreciation and compliments go a long way toward making your partner feel loved, needed and wanted. Both men and women want to hear nice things about themselves - but don't overdo it - it will sound insincere, and your partner will wonder why you are blowing smoke up their rear end...

    While I agree with most of the things this article says, I'm not sure I want my boyfriend/husband, etc to tell me I look skinny in my jeans when I actually look fat...I would rather just try on another pair of pants. Maybe, instead, one could say, "You're thinning a little, but I think it looks sexy..." which you probably do if you're dating/married, whatever to the guy!

    I agree with this article, men need to appreciated. Also women need this from men as well.

    I think these could apply to women too! Who doesn't want to be told they are hot and needed?!

    Men also need to feel appreciated. I make a point to notice out loud when my husband has been working hard, and prop him up with a few words of encouragement if needed. I also like to tell him how much I love our life together. I'm pretty sure it makes him smile from the inside out.
