The most important tips to compliment him just right

When trying to send a cute text that will make him think about you all day, it’s important to be in tune with what kind of compliments and acknowledgments resonate with him. Typically speaking, where women like to be complimented on their beauty, men like to be complimented on their achievements and work.

If you want to make sure you’re doing romance for your man right, use the romantic texts to send to a guy we’ve shared above, but also remember to follow these tips.

1. Mention his manliness

Men, by and large, have a psychological need for what Carl Jung termed the “hero archetype.” Recognizing and affirming their masculinity can activate this deeply ingrained archetype.

How about sending cute texts for him that say something like, “You’re so manly, it’s like Thor lost his hammer and you picked it up!” This serves dual purposes: acknowledging his manliness and subtly becoming one of those cute texts to make him think about you all day long.

2. Talk about how safe and comfortable you feel

As we said, men are often socialized to be protectors, tapping into the “caretaker archetype.” Use this to your advantage with romantic texts to send a guy. This does more than just stroke his ego—it validates his role in the relationship, which can be extremely fulfilling. [Read: Must-know secrets to master while texting a guy you like]

3. Tell him how well he takes care of you

This cute text tip plays into the psychological concept of the social exchange theory, which posits that relationships are built on a system of rewards and costs. When you affirm his contributions, you’re giving him social and emotional rewards.

4. Bring up his personality

Ah, the trait theory of personality psychology would love this one! Acknowledging specific personality traits he prides himself on will make those romantic texts to send a guy all the more meaningful.

With this texting tip, not only do you compliment the core of his being, but you’re also showing your attentiveness to his behavior and personality. This type of compliment in a cute text will go a long way in making him think about you.

5. Mention his hard work and ambition

This tickles the part of the male brain interested in achievement motivation. Telling him you find his ambition sexy is like adding rocket fuel to his drive. Think of it as one of those cute texts to make him think about you and all the future possibilities.
