I don't know a person that doesn't like to be told that they are pretty or handsome or that they are the man or the woman for that matter.

How many of us stay in situations that are unhealthy in other ways just because our ego is being stroked?
How many men have shelled out thousands of dollars to a woman because she told him that he was the man in bed or that he had it going on in some way?

How many people have stayed on dead end jobs for years taking the promomtions and the pats on the back instead of the higher, competitive salary? The same goes for clubs and organizations and such.
