Those three simple words are enough to change lives and influence people for a lifetime. If you’re in love, you should definitely say the words to your partner, letting your lover know what you feel about them. It will go a long way to keep your relationship strong.
However, there are times that you may not feel the need to actually say the words I love you to your partner for some reason best known to you. In this case, you can choose to show, rather than just say the words. There are many ways to say I love you without actually saying the words. You can do this through a variety of everyday actions that express love.
You Can Say I Love You By Flirting With Your Partner
Flirting with your partner is a very important thing to do in your relationship. Flirting keeps you bonded with your lover and constantly reminds you of what got you into the relationship with them in the first place. When you flirt with your partner, the spark of your romance is kept alive, and no matter how much time has gone by, you can be sure to keep being connected with your significant other.
Flirting is a good way to say the words ‘I love you’ without actually saying them. There are many ways you can flirt with your lover and stir them up emotionally and romantically.
Touch them tenderly
This is one of the ways to flirt with your lover. When you’re together, get close to them and touch them tenderly in suggestive ways that tell them how much they mean to you and how much you crave them. Put your arm around them or come from behind them and hug them from the back. As a man, you can run your fingers through your woman’s hair and touch her arm gently when giving her things. You can even tickle them and watch them with tender eyes while they laugh.
When you do this, even if you do not say the words, they will know you love them and are making efforts to let them know.
Use your eyes
Your eyes are very powerful weapons when you’re flirting with your partner, use them well. When alone with your partner and even when you have a company, use your eyes to tell them how much you love them. Look at them passionately in ways that stir them up and create sexual awareness from them. Make sure you let them know you’re attracted to them. If they ask you why you’re looking at them, tell them you’re wondering why they are so good-looking.
Snuggle up to them
You can snuggle up to your partner when you’re with them. This can happen especially when you’re watching TV together. Just snuggle up to them and hold each other as you observe the scenes on your TV. It shows you enjoy them being around and that you feel comfortable with them.
Be spontaneous with romantic gestures
To flirt with your partner, you can also do spontaneous things like smacking them gently on their behind. When they try to return the favor, run playfully, and look at them lustfully with coy eyes. This immediately tells them about your feelings for them which includes the fact that you crave them.
You can also write them sweet notes spontaneously, talking about how they look good doing what they’re doing at the moment. For instance, if your lover is cooking in the kitchen, write a short piece saying “I like the way your hands move while you cut those onions. You can conclude by saying her hands are so sexy while holding them. This sparks something romantic between you immediately.
How To Say I Love You By Making Your Relationship A priority
You can show you love your partner without actually saying the words to them by simply learning to put your relationship first. Showing your partner that you really value the romance you share with them tells a lot about how you want them to remain in your life and how much you adore them.
There are different ways you can show that you value your relationship. Let’s discuss them below:
Learn to compromise
You and your lover are two different people who come from different backgrounds and have had different experiences in life. You went t different schools, had different upbringings, and may have grown up in different environments. So, you may not have the same beliefs or agree on the same things. From time to time, you are bound to disagree on certain things.
However, the ability to compromise on a number of issues is one of the most important things you can do when you disagree with your partner. It shows them how much you value the relationship you have and how far you’re willing to go to keep them in your life. Without saying it, you have shown them you love them and will do anything to keep on loving them.
Settle your misunderstandings the same day
This is another way to show how much you value your relationship. Everyone disagrees with others from time and even lovers fight too. But, while some people are good at dealing with their hurt ad making up with the people they have fought with, others are good at keeping malice and making sure the altercation drags on for a long time.
However, when you fight with your lover, the one thing you can do to show you value the relationship is settling the misunderstanding as fast as possible, preferably on the same day. This is very important because it passes a very sensitive message which is that you utterly value your relationship that you are willing to swallow your pride and make sure your romance does not get broken up by your altercation. Go the extra mile to make things work and your partner will deeply appreciate it. Without you saying it, you would have told them you love them.
Buy Your Partner Lovely Gifts
This is a very self-explanatory step in telling your partner you love them without actually saying the words. Buying a gift for people you love is very important in relationships. It goes a long way to prove that your profession of love for them is not fake at all. When you buy gifts for your lover, it helps to remind them about how much you love and appreciate their presence in your life. It creates a fresh bond between you and helps you get deeper connections with each other.
There are different gifts you can buy for your partner. All you need to do is think about what they like at that particular moment in time and try to get it for them. Remember that you don’t have to break the bank to buy your gifts. Just get something thoughtful that you can afford and present it to them when you see them.
But you don’t have to physically present your gift to your lover. Instead, you can also have the gifts delivered to them with a specially written note from you. That will surprise them and really endear them to you even more. Cultivate the habit of buying gifts for your partner every once in a while.
Say I Love You By Lending Your Lover A Helping Hand
This is one very important way to prove to your partner that you love them without even saying the words out. Actions do speak louder than words and what you do to help your lover tells them a lot about you.
There are many ways you can lend a helping hand to your lover and get them endeared even more to you.
Do their chores
Sometimes your lover gets really stressed and fails to do their chores. In these instances, you can step in and help them out. Go around and look for what has been left undone and help them finish up. Do this also when they are too busy to do some chores.
Run errands for them
Don’t feel too big to run errands for your lover. They may need something but are too held up to go get those things. Volunteer to help them and put a smile on their faces. You can also call them when coming home from work and ask if they need anything so you can get it for them.
Get their car washed
You can wash your lover’s car when they are too busy or just not able to do so themselves. It’s very important to show kind gestures towards them all the time. This list is not exhaustive. There are other things you can help your lover do around or outside the house. Just look around and help them out.
Plan Surprise Outings
Everyone loves going out every once in a while. In relationships, the importance of outings can not be overemphasized. That break from the daily grind and hustle to be with your lover helps to spark the deeper connection between you two. Every couple should take time out to go on romantic outings and just be together.
Planning surprise outings for your lover gets them endeared to you in ways you cannot fathom. First, you sweep them off their feet with your unexpected announcement that you’re going on an outing and then the excitement that you both feel can help you become closer than ever.
Below are some ideas for romantic outings you can plan for you and your lover:
- Plan a picnic for you and your lover.
- Arrange for a couple’s massage at a spa you love.
- Take them out for a surprise romantic dinner or lunch.
- Arrange for a hot air balloon ride with your lover.
- Rent a sailboat and give your lover a thrill on the water.
- Buy tickets to their favorite concerts and take them to the show.
There are many other ways you can take them on outings. Just think about what suits you best, considering your environment and how much you can afford to spend.
Engage In PDAs
PDA means Public Display of Affection. It refers to couples publicly showing affection for each other by kissing, holding hands, or doing other decent things in the full view of other people. PDAs are very important in relationships and have been said to help in drawing couples together.
When you kiss your partner in public with everyone watching, it shows that you’re very comfortable with everyone knowing that they are your lover. It goes a long way to show that you admire them, you’re attached to them, completely committed to them, and are not scared or ashamed of showing the world you love them.
However, it is important to note that not everyone loves engaging in PDA. Some people are extremely shy and may not be comfortable with engaging in a public display of affection. If your partner is like that, gently ask permission from them before you engage in PDA with them.
Check On Them Randomly
This is another way to show that you really care about your lover and make them see that you actually value them. While they are at the office or any other place that is not with you, put a call through to them when they don’t expect and then tell them you have nothing to say, but that you have only called to check how they are doing. This will definitely warm up their hearts. Apparently, this goes to show that you have them in your heart and are actually thinking about them while they are away from you.
You can also randomly walk into their workplace to check on them. You don’t have to do this very often so that you don’t become predictable. It is important for them not to expect your coming. The element of surprise is something that goes a long way to spice things up about your visit to them. With this act, you don’t need to say the words ‘I love you’. They know already that you are in love with them.
