10 Ways to Show Someone You Love Them 10 Ways to Show Someone You Love Them October 18, 2012 at 12:00 am By Natasha Jervis Actions Speak Louder Than Words Have you really wanted to show your partner just how much you love them, but are unsure how to? Don’t worry, many people don’t know how to express their feelings through actions. But it really isn’t as hard as you think and there are numerous ways you can show your loved one just how truly amazing you think they are. Surprise! Surprise them with a gift when they least expect it. Gifts that aren’t expected are always a sign that you care deeply for someone. They will know that you love them because you took time to think of them. Leave a Note Have you ever left a heartfelt note for your partner? Have you left the house covered with cute little sticky notes and sweet messages so that they find them when they arrive? Surprise notes are always a great way to say, “I love you.” Leave a note on the bathroom mirror, in his/her pocket, on their favorite snack, in a book or on a sandwich you made for them to take to work! Give the Gift of a Hug A hug goes a long way! Greet your partner with a hug when they get home from work. Climb into bed and give them a snuggle when they wake or hug them when they least expect it. When you give the gift of a hug to your loved one out of the blue, they will feel how much you truly adore them. Hold Hands in Public: Couples Unite Even though this may seem to come easy for some couples, it is actually difficult for some. If you are one of those people who do not like public displays of affection, think again. By taking your partner’s hand in public you are making a public announcement that you love the person you are walking with and that you are proud of who you are with. It can do wonders for intimacy and relationship development. It won’t hurt, so give it a try! Do you feel like your partner is ashamed of you? Christian ext. 5175 can see into their heart for your answer! Make an Effort to Help With the daily routine of households, school days and workloads, we can sometimes forget to do our share. If you don’t usually do any household chores, lend a hand and do it without your partner having to ask. Do the laundry, clean the windows, do some yard work or do the job your partner hates most. By chipping in, your loved one will know just how much you care. Active Listening Listening is part of the communication process and it is extremely important where loving relationships are concerned. Take time to listen to your partner. Don’t try to fix everything. Sometimes all your loved one needs is for you to listen to them. Make the time, commit to listening and allow your loved one to express how they are feeling and let them discuss anything they need to get off their chest. A Massage: A Win-Win Situation for Couples By offering to give your partner a massage, foot or neck rub, you are showing them that you care about their well-being and that you love them. Massage is an art of intimacy and can be a fantastic way to show that you care about your partners pain, relief and comfort. Make Time for Connection Life can be busy and sometimes couples forget to connect with each other. You may think you always spend time together because you go to the gym together, watch movies together and keep active with the kids as a family, but when do you actually talk to each other, face to face, with eye contact? Dedicated “couple time” is essential to a deep and meaningful relationship. Show your loved one how much you love them by planning a night out or weekend just for the two of you to connect. Put it in Words If you want to express your feelings in words, you can by putting it in a card. By taking the time to sit down and think about how special your partner is to you and by writing more than a few sentences, you will show your deep love for your partner. Be Thoughtful: Put Them First Couples can get so caught up in their daily lives and activities that they can forget to perform acts of kindness for each other. It’s easy for some to put themselves first. Next time you are driving home and feel like getting yourself a tea or coffee at a drive-through, bring your partner one. If you want to go to the movies, ask them what they would like to see. It’s important to put them first sometimes and be considerate. Stop putting them first if they don’t deserve it! Learn to put yourself first with the help of Morgana ext. 5471. Learn to Compromise The more you show that you can accept change and that you can compromise when making plans or weekly schedules, the more you show how much you love someone. Relationships are not one-sided and both parties need to feel respected. Work together and you are guaranteed to build a strong, loving relationship for the future.
