What does a frequent intense desire to compliment persons of the opposite sex indicate?

A heterosexual man in his mid forties describes what he believes is an unusually intense and nagging desire to compliment women, usually on some aspect of their appearance, personality, or skill.

He recognizes that there is nothing wrong with complimenting others in some situations but believes that if he were to give these compliments every time he experiences the urge, it would often be inappropriate. For example, complete strangers, professional situations, etc.

He controls these desires and doesn't respond to them in situations that are inappropriate, but nonetheless feels the frequency and intensity is unhealthy and excessive.

What kinds of underlying psychological issues might cause something like this? (Assuming the urge to give compliments is actually excessive.)

What's an assertion, and what should I type in?

Compesh is a question and answer (and debate) website, so before you make a debate, you better learn what an assertion is. I suppose you already know what a question is, and that you've typed it in the box. ;)

An assertion, is basically a statement you can make, that is either true or false.

Richer people have better health.

The question for that would be, Do richer people have better health?

And don't forget to make your assertion, match your question.
