Knowing how to make a girl happy is beyond useful for men, but without knowing the things girls like to hear, that’s a lot harder. Here’s what to say.
They say the key to a man’s heart is through his stomach but for women, it’s through making her feel special. That’s really the main thing you have to remember with girls. If you want her to like you, make her feel unique and special to you by telling her things girls like to hear.
Obviously, you can’t just string together a bunch of phrases in the hopes that it’ll get her attention. There’s more to it than that. You have to be genuine and you truly have to like the girl in order to say things she likes to hear. If you don’t, she’ll pick up on it.
Mistakes that drive girls away from you
We all make mistakes. When it comes to winning a girl over, those mistakes can permanently affect your chances. If you’re someone who only gives girls compliments based on her looks, that’s a mistake. She’ll see right through you and won’t want you.
You have to appeal to her as more than just someone who wants her body. If you talk to her with the only goal of getting her in bed, that’s a mistake and it won’t work. Girls are smarter than that and we know when a guy just wants a piece of ass. [Read: 15 things guys do that are a big turn off for girls]
Things girls like to hear in order to feel special
You need to make her feel unique to you. She has to feel like you’re only interested in her and nobody else. Sometimes saying a few specific things can help her see just how you truly feel. Here are some of the things girls like to hear that can help you communicate your feelings.
#1 Compliments about her intelligence. As much as girls like to be told they’re pretty, calling her smart is a much more effective way to make her feel good. If she’s beautiful, she’s probably always complimented on her looks. But what about her brains?
Just because she’s pretty doesn’t mean she’s not smart. If you know her and want to make her feel incredible, tell her you like the way she thinks. Tell her you love how smart she is and how she thinks things through. It’ll mean more to her than you know. [Read: How to compliment a girl and make her blush]
#2 Compliments about her creativity. Aside from just being smart, girls love to be told they’re creative. It’s not a compliment people usually give and that’s why it’s one of the things girls like to hear. They don’t hear it often so it means more.
This is even more powerful when used during a time she’s actually being creative. So if she just painted something or made a bracelet or something that involves creativity, just tell her she’s very creative. It’ll make her day.
#3 Anything about how she’s “one-of-a-kind.” All girls want to hear that they’re not like others. And while we already know we’re unique because there’s no one else like us, we still want to hear it from our men.
#4 Unique things about her looks. You definitely can tell a girl she’s attractive. However, the way you say this can make a major difference in how she hears it. Instead of telling her she has pretty eyes, focus on describing why you like them.
Saying that they’re such an interesting shade of blue with little lines of green will make her feel a lot more special than saying, “your eyes are really cute.” It makes her feel like you’re paying extra attention – and that makes her feel loved and special to you.
#5 Anything unrequited. Don’t make compliments something that you only give if you receive. You shouldn’t say something because you want her to give you a compliment in return.
#6 Your honest feelings. Girls love when their men tell them how they feel. I know, you probably aren’t thrilled about this one but it does work. She wants your feelings. She wants you to tell her how you really feel about her and for you to get vulnerable.
So open up. If you care about her and you want her to know how special she is and how much you love her, then let her see how you truly feel. Don’t keep that stuff inside or she’ll start to think you don’t truly care.
#7 Your excitement for the future – with her. A lot of this has to do with reassuring her that you want her in your future. That means she wants to hear you get excited about the future with her.
You don’t have to tell her you want to get married by any means. All you have to do is just mention something you’re excited to do with her in the future. It can be a month from now or a year from now. No matter how soon it is, she’ll be happy to hear that you want her there. [Read: 12 life questions to help you visualize the future]
#8 That she’s changed your life for the better in some way. One of the things girls like to hear most is how different and better your life is because she’s in it. It might seem cheesy but it really means a lot if you’re genuine about it.
It’s not like she’s trying to change your life but by telling her it’s better because of her, it makes her extremely happy. It makes her feel like she has a purpose in your life. That will ensure she feels special and loved.
#9 When you ask for her opinion. You probably do this enough as is, but just be aware that girls love when you ask for their opinions. They want to provide you with something and by giving her that opportunity through advice, it’ll make her really happy. [Read: 20 ways to make a girl incredibly happy]
#10 Anything about your friends liking her. I know this seems odd but girls really want to hear that your friends like her. Us ladies know how important your friends are to you.
We want to make sure they like us so they don’t end up convincing you to end things. If your friends really do like her, just let her know. It’ll make her happier than you think it will – even if she doesn’t show it.
#11 Beauty compliments when she’s not done up. It’s one thing to tell a girl you think she’s beautiful when she’s done her hair, makeup, and dressed up all nice for you. It’s completely different when you tell her how much you appreciate her looks when she’s makeup-free and in sweats.
By doing this, you’re saying you like her as is. She doesn’t need the extra stuff to be attractive to you. Many girls often worry about this so telling her will reassure her of how much you enjoy her naturally. [Read: 11 sweet compliments all girls really love]
#12 Anything good about her laugh and smile. I know this is a weird one but girls really like being told they have a cute laugh or that their smile makes you weak in the knees. It’s a very small thing that makes a big difference to her – especially if her laugh is a little loud and obnoxious. If you think it’s adorable, just tell her.
Knowing the things girls like to hear can help you solidify your connection with someone you truly care about. Don’t make the mistakes that push women away and instead, say some of these things to win her over.
