Guys: How often do you tell your girlfriend/wife that she's beautiful, gorgeous, or compliment her on an outfit?

Do you tell her that you love her on a daily basis? In your opinion, are women too needy emotionally, or are guys not affectionate enough?

my bf tells me all the time no matter when or where we are at when I'm mad and I say I'm ugly he gets mad and tells me "you are not ugly you are beautiful I have not seen a more beautiful person when I see you I see beauty" so it makes me feel good

My ex never told me that I was pretty, attractive, not hideous, dressed well, looked nice, not a troll, didn't smell bad... anything of the sort (and no, that's NOT why he's my ex). I'm obviously not emotionally needy, or that WOULD have been the deal breaker. He is simply emotionally unavailable. Not all guys are that way; I'm not saying that at all. But neither are all women emotionally needy.

I didn't say that I didn't want it; I'm saying that I didn't get it and therefore it was a non-issue in my mind. Life is what you decide it's going to be; I could have whinged and whined about it, but that would only have made me and everyone around me miserable.

You look good in green and yellow. :) Predominately green, but yellow too.

then it was really nothing in you're relationship maybe that's why he's an ex if it was someone serious it doesn't have to be love but something serious you wouldn't have or make anybody miserable they would have told you js

I tell her with every text, every sentence, and in every outfit i check her out and compliment her body. I recommend everybody do this, because if you don't the next guy will and she'll like the attention.

I tell her when I notice. Which is frequently. As far as emotionally needy, she might be, but not all women are. As far as guys, some guys just express affection in a way others might not always understand. Everybody presents affection in different ways, but this difference is most apparent between men and women.

It depends on the woman/man. Some people need to hear about how great they are or how they look more than others. Self-worth comes from within and that kind of neediness is either a lack of it or he/she simply a narcissist.

I used to and she didn't know how to take the compliment. Now she just takes it for granted.
Eventually, she stated that I do it because I have to not because they're my true feelings.
Damned if you do, damned if you dont!

Question 1... Not as often as I should, but often enough. Next month we will celebrate ten thousand days and a year. I occasionally compliment her outfits.
Question 2...Yes, I tell her I love her daily.
Question 3...Depends on the woman.
Question 4... Guys are not affectionate enough. Like a Proverb not a rule.
My wife is my best friend, we forgive each others character defects without neglecting to help each become the best we can be.

Men tend to be logical thinkers and women have always been emotional thinkers, so it's not necessarily needy. Women have always been the "care takers" historically, so they often feel that's all they are or seen as. And married long enough, they feel their "just there" so noticing her isn't so tough, time consuming or costly. It's not hard at all to compliment anyone regularly, it's a matter of paying attention to the work the do, the way they do it, their talents, personality, their loyalty, the care they take of their homes, family and themselves, gotta be hundreds of things about a person if one really pays attention, odd how if she were to be gone tomorrow how you'd notice a million things to miss about her. If you just keep those compliments casual and honest, it will go a lot further and more natural, little plzing comments here and there. And occasionally make it obvious with flowers, dinner out, etc.
