8 other ways to say “You’re beautiful” to your partner

Complimenting your partner does a lot for his/her confidence, and can help to reassure him/her that you are still attracted to him/her.
The mistake many people make is taking their partners for granted, which sometimes causes them to seek approval and appreciation from others.
Here are 8 other ways to say beautiful that will make your partner feel loved:

01“You’re the most handsome man in the world”
Men get insecure, just like women sometimes. Think about it, how many men try to flirt with you, or thirst after your pictures on Instagram on Facebook?
Even though you’re with him, he can still feel a bit insecure, especially if he thinks those men are better looking.
This is a good way to let him know he’s beautiful, and more importantly that you think he’s the most handsome of them all.
This will help to boost his confidence and make him feel more secure in his role as your boyfriend/husband.

02“I can’t take my eyes off you”
When something beautiful catches anyone’s eye, the natural reaction is to do a double-take or stare at it.
Saying this to your partner is an excellent idea because it means that you’re mesmerized by his/her beauty and that he/she is a great sight to behold.


03“You look super cute”
This is a good expression to use when your partner gets all dressed up and you want to let him/her know how good he/she looks with his/her hair that way, or in the outfit that he/she has on.
It can also help a great deal if your partner is feeling insecure about his/her appearance.

If you say this to your partner randomly, you are guaranteed to make him/her smile. It shows that you have been paying close attention and that you think his/her eyes are beautiful.


05“Your smile melts my heart”
This is a good thing to say to your partner when you think he/she has a great smile. You may also use it when your partner asks you for something, as another way to say you could never say no to such a beautiful face.


06“Why do you look so yummy?”
You can use the word yummy or delicious in this sense to say that your partner looks good enough to eat. In other words, he/she is very attractive to you at that moment and you can’t keep your hands to yourself.

07“I can’t stop thinking about how stunning you look”
This is a good compliment to use on a date or any special occasion that your partner has dressed up for. Saying this will make him/her feel super confident and more importantly, loved.


08“You’re more than I could ever ask for”
Everyone has moments of insecurity, and it’s your job as a partner to dispel those negative thoughts, especially if it’s to do with your relationship.
This is one of the best ways to say beautiful when your partner thinks something silly, like you’re out of his/her league.
It will make him/her know that it is not true and you’re grateful for the opportunity to call him/her yours.
