sounds like your guy really appreciates and shows honor to you; maybe he comes from a family where men have reverence for their women and respect them fully. If you think he's overly complimentary, you could suggest that to him, but it sounds like he just wants you to be happy, which is really very sweet.
I compliment my wife many times a day
I don't think too much...I don't compliment her for a response, but because I mean it!
he is admiring you up close. enjoy it now. You may have one who never tells you anything some day.
