Telling someone you love them is a truly incredible gift, but, in the end, words are not nearly everything. True love and affection can be shown much more through little gestures than words. That said, there are plenty of ways you can tell your partner you love them without actually saying these words, but they will recognize your feelings and appreciate them for sure. If you’re looking for ideas that can help you brighten up your partner’s day and make their heart leap for joy, keep on reading.
Kissing is one of the best ways to show someone you care for them. And when it comes to romantic relationships, kissing has a truly special power. Not all kisses have to lead to intercourse. Therefore, don’t miss the chance to give your partner the softest, most gentle kiss you can when you wake up, before you go to bed, or whenever you’re together and you just want to make them happy.
This may seem a bit strange at first but there are various forms of nonsexual touching. For instance, a lot of people are in need of a good massage, like to hold hands and hug, enjoy when someone strokes their hair, etc. If you know that your partner has a special inkling for some of these sensations, don’t hesitate to make their day by touching them nonsexually the way they like. This doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t enjoy the pleasures of expressing your love sexually, but it just shows that your love for them makes you wish to do things for them, cuddle them and care for them.
Showing just how grateful and lucky you are to have your partner in this world at the same time when you exist in it is a great way to express your love without actually saying the exact words. You can write your partner a love letter, talk to their parents about this and even dedicate them a song that would artistically explain your feelings. Knowing that they’re loved, cherished and needed is something everyone longs for.
Obviously, you don’t want to compliment your partner too much for every little thing because this may start to feel fake and awkward to them after a while. But, it’s important to tell them why you think they’re great and amazing every once in a while. This can be especially valuable and appreciated when your partner is having a bad day. Don’t feel embarrassed to admit why you’ve fallen for them. Complimenting will let your partner catch a glimpse of what they look like in your eyes.
Sorry may seem to be the hardest word but it’s also one of the most important words in a romantic relationship. If you’re aware that you’ve made a mistake or hurt your partner in any way that actually can be solved with an apology, say and show that you’re sorry as soon as possible. Don’t just let it all go because this can only make your partner feel underappreciated and unsure about themselves. A sincere apology and maybe even an explanation of your thought process that would reassure your partner can mean a world to them.
You can’t build your dreams on suspicious minds. If you don’t trust your partner you have to really ask yourself what caused that to happen. But if you know that you can trust them wholeheartedly, be sure to show it to them with your attitude as well. Not only is trust essential for creating a strong and loving future but it’s also a very charming trait that will make your partner love you even more!
Exchanging gifts on special occasions is something everybody else does, so it soon loses that romantic quality. However, if you want to keep the excitement alive and show your love to your partner, surprising them occasionally with customized and unique gifts that they would absolutely adore is definitely something to try. Not only will you make them feel appreciated because of a personalized gift but you will also show that you don’t need a reason to think about them and want to make them happy. These gifts don’t have to be anything extraordinary – it’s the thought that matters.
There will always be a time when you and your partner don’t agree about something. When something like this happens, it’s important that you keep your cool and avoid getting really mad. It’s these moments and blind anger that can make you say things you don’t really mean. If, on the other hand, you speak in a soft voice and explain your point of view, you can expect that calmness and softness to project to your partner as well so that you can quickly resolve any issues you may have. Both you and your partner may not be consciously aware of the power of a soft voice when something’s wrong, but a calm attitude will only bring you closer to one another.
You don’t have to be an amazing cook or even like cooking in order to surprise your loved one with their favorite meal. What’s more, your love for them will shine through more strikingly if they know that you don’t enjoy cooking very much but you took the time to learn and prepare something that will make them happy. After all, food is always a great way to say “I love you”.
Make the most out of your free time when you’re together. It’s very important that you find something you both like so that you can enjoy it to the fullest. Also, even if you have no particular fancy for your partner’s hobbies, show basic interest in them and learn about them so that they know that you care. When it comes to the activities that you can engage in like a couple, don’t think too hard. Of course, you may choose something really exciting, but, in the end, it’s also more than enough to spend your evenings curled up on the couch together in front of a TV.
Being able to tell someone you love them is amazing. But, being able to show them how you truly feel is incredibly marvelous.
