How To Express Love To Someone You Love: [Top 24 Ways]
If you’ve ever wondered how to express love to someone you love, this article is for you.
Are you in a relationship where you realize the two of you are drifting apart? Having a hard time? Or just want to upgrade what you have?
I’ve noticed that showing your love to your partner without expecting an immediate response will greatly enhance the relationship and your partner will notice the gesture sooner rather than later.
Thus building a much stronger relationship.
How To Express Love To Someone You Love
1: Give Your Partner Some Compliments
Paying a genuine compliment to someone special shows that you notice their efforts and strengths.
They’ve probably gone all day or week without being complimented, so it’s important to show them that they still impress you.
Your romantic partner wants to impress you when they have the opportunity to do so. As a good wife or girlfriend, you should appreciate their efforts.
However, be careful in choosing your words.
You may not mean it badly, but they may interpret it otherwise and be insulted instead. Men are more sensitive to words that will hurt their male ego.
2: Try New Things Together
The emotional bond between two people, regardless of gender, occurs through shared experiences that involve intense, positive emotions.
That’s how people make good friendships. In your relationship, you can show your love by trying new things together.
This doesn’t just mean eating at a new, attractive restaurant, even if it counts as one. You need to show that you don’t want to get stuck in a boring, monotonous routine.
Doing something adventurous with your romantic partner shows that you consider them your first choice if you want to have fun.
If you’re both busy professionals, you can always find time during the week to do something adventurous together.
This can be as simple as visiting a strange object museum, hiking or biking. Would you like to do something adventurous with someone who is emotionally distant?
Trying something new with your partner shows that you are not emotionally distant from them.
3: Be Romantic
Being romantic seems like an obvious part of being in a relationship, but believe it or not, most couples fail to be romantic once they are a few months into their relationship.
It’s a sad fact that drives men and women who “commit” to an affair in order to feel valued or loved again.
Many couples are also so busy with their careers that it can be difficult to fit romantic time into their schedule.
But is your busy schedule really worth losing your partner to someone else who starts appreciating your partner more than you?
Otherwise, make a few romantic gestures.
How did you feel when you and your romantic partner first started dating?
Remember the feeling of being infatuated and imagine how you always tried to look your best. Enjoy a candle light dinner as a surprise. If your partner loves you, they will appreciate it.
4: Basic Hugs and Kisses
Hugs and kisses are the best way to show your love to your partner every day.
You are free to kiss and hug them whenever they are around. Kiss and hug your partner before they go to bed and before they go to work.
Say hello to them good morning and good night every day and close your greetings with a kiss and a hug.
Unlike compliments, hugs and kisses can never be mistaken for they are universal expressions of affection.
Whether you’re at home or on the street, you can always kiss that special someone.
If your partner is uncomfortable with public displays of affection, you can hold hands.
You can also wrap your arms around his waist to show more affection. When you are at home, never forget to hug and kiss them.
5: Surprise, Surprise!
Previously, it was mentioned that giving your romantic partner surprises from time to time is a healthy way to show your love.
Showing your romantic partner random surprises shouldn’t end up with random gifts. You can make a surprise breakfast in bed for them with their favorite breakfast.
You can also track a Post It with a quick note leading up to the final surprise.
This could lead to a sultry bath with candlelight and champagne or a romantic candlelight dinner with music.
It will only be a pleasant surprise if you know what they want. During the months that you’ve been together, remembering what they wanted shows that you care about them.
Maybe you’ve noticed them stopping at the grocery store for their home made treats (ice cream, chocolate bars, etc).
Whatever your surprise, it should be something you know they will like.
6: Make Their Life A Little Easier
No one wants to see their loved ones having a hard time.
Likewise, you don’t want to see your romantic partner go about their day with lots of hardships, especially if they are the breadwinner.
Show them your love by offering your help.
You don’t have to volunteer about something you don’t know much about, like for example, offering to fix their car or do some serious work-related help.
But you can help them by offering what you are good at, but this does not mean doing everything for them.
These can be simple things like getting dressed for work tomorrow or sorting mail.
If you both have busy careers, then it’s only natural that he would also do something to make your life a little easier.
Your partner can offer help in the kitchen, doing the dishes, doing the laundry so you can relax a bit.
7: Learn to Cook for Them
There is probably no person on this planet who does not love a good meal cooked by his wife or girlfriend.
The saying goes that the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach; this wouldn’t be a proverb for no reason.
Most people cook something special only on certain occasions like Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years.
Why not cook something special for your romantic partner even if there’s no occasion? You can cook a special breakfast or dinner for them.
They will love coming home after a super stressful day knowing that something special is set on the table.
To make it even more special, prepare some dessert.
If you don’t have time to prepare a fancy dinner, you can choose to bake a cake or bake a cake.
8: Show Your Support
Most adults are under a lot of pressure to prove that they are worthy and successful.
Plus, they don’t like looking like a failure to you and of course, their parents. Plus there may be silent competition between your partner’s siblings.
If they are the oldest, they could even be under much deeper pressure to be successful.
If you are more successful than them in your respective fields or if you earn more than them, their egos can hurt a little, especially if you are with a man.
Show your love to your partner by supporting them in their endeavors and dreams. Someone who loves you will talk to you about their dreams because they are not afraid to open up.
Don’t betray their trust in you by belittling their dreams and goals.
9: They Hate It? Don’t Force Them
It’s okay for your partner to help you with something (chores, workload, etc.).
But to be honest, they don’t like doing these things. They just do it for you. It’s fine for you to help them even if you don’t really like doing those things.
However, if your partner doesn’t like doing something, don’t force them to do it.
Don’t even think about blackmailing them into doing it as proof that he loves you. If they volunteer to do some chores, why not?
But don’t shy away from their efforts by saying “I could do better.”
Guide them through it and they will slowly learn, even if not as perfect as you.
Teaching them how to do things can also be a bonding time for the two of you. Remember to thank them for trying and kiss them afterwards.
10: Try To Learn What They Love
You’ll be with your romantic partner for quite a while, as long as you both really love each other.
Because of this, it’s impossible for the two of you not to engage in each other’s hobbies and activities.
When you love someone, you will become curious about what they do.
In this case, it’s natural and even automatic for you to be curious about what your romantic partner likes.
Someone who truly loves you will be flattered by your being interested in what they like.
If your romantic partner loves sports, try learning about his favorite team.
Ask them questions (not during the game) as to what made them prefer that team. If they love arts and crafts, schedule a craft session together.
11: Get Crazy Together
Doing crazy things together brings back your youth.
Subconsciously, both you and your partner have a silent but deep longing to be young again.
When men and women feel bored in their relationship, no matter how committed they are, they will find ways to feel refreshed and invigorated.
Cheating on a younger woman, for example, is part of how one rediscovers one’s youth.
Every once in a while, do something fun but harmless like dedicate a song to each other on the radio, hide a love note in their trunk when they’re leaving for a business trip, have a T-shirt or pillow customized with your personal message for them, do a foot spa, manicure and pedicure together, etc.
There are lots of new and crazy things to do for couples online, so be sure to check them out.
12: Communicate Well
You may have noticed that they are not great at decoding a woman’s verbal signals.
On the other hand, women tend to exaggerate things that are not clear to them.
Good communication is one of the building blocks of a good relationship. Without this, you cannot reach each other.
Show your love for your partner by honing good communication skills.
Sure, this step might not be very romantic, but it will help clear up your relationship of hidden resentments or problems.
This may be difficult but as much as possible, avoid the silent treatment (1).
If you don’t want to talk to your partner, tell them you need time to clear your head and let your anger cool down.
Talk about how their actions make you feel, not about what they should do.
13: Be honest
There are good lies and bad lies.
In romantic relationships, it’s important to keep things true because sooner or later, the other party will uncover lies, even if you reason it’s for their own good.
Being honest can cause pain and temporary problems, but it will save you from guilt.
As we all know, guilt becomes evident through body language.
Another benefit of being honest with your romantic partner is that you don’t have to remember any lies which allows you to be consistent with what you tell them.
If you don’t like something they are doing, tell them honestly but thoughtfully.
In the end, suggest alternatives but leave the options open so they don’t feel dictated.
14: Occasional Compromise
You and your romantic partner are not copies of each other; therefore there will be differences in your preferences, abilities, and attitudes.
Show your love to your romantic partner by learning how to compromise every once in a while.
However, your partner must support your endeavors and must also compromise for you, when you need it.
Compromise shows that you are factoring your romantic partner into your decisions.
When you decide about something that doesn’t suit either of you, sit down and discuss the issue with them. List all the pros and cons of your choice.
If you have children, consider them in your decision as well. You both have to compromise to show each other respect.
Respect their female friends, no matter how insecure they make you feel.
15: Don’t Judge Their Friends
Your romantic partner chooses their friends.
Judging them will hurt your partner’s feelings because in a way, they care about them too.
They have a silent but deep bond with their close associates. If you judge one of them, your partner may not only feel hurt but also gradually dislike you.
Don’t stop them from hanging out with their friends. This will give the impression that you are a smothering, possessive boyfriend who won’t let him have any fun outside of your relationship.
Your time together is important.
Likewise, their time with their friends matters too. Their friends are a great source of friendship and network.
Don’t openly say anything negative about them.
Friendships that last years are rare, so let your partner have them.
16: Be Positive
There is something very attractive about positive people.
It was as if they had a shining and radiant aura around them. Positive people make others feel hopeful about the future.
Simply put, positive people are not toxic to hang out with.
In serious relationships, it’s often inevitable to run into serious problems, especially if you’re married.
Avoid whining and nagging.
If your partner constantly hears you nag and whine, they’re going to assume they’re doing terrible at everything.
You two should be a team. The team members have the same goal and they don’t let each other down.
Smile as much as possible.
Flaunt your sense of humor (only when appropriate) to keep things light. Be the shoulder to lean on when your partner is feeling emotionally down.
17: Give Them Some Private Time
Quality time spent together contributes to your bond as a couple.
The more time you’ve known each other before you started dating, the more likely it is that your relationship will last.
However, your romantic partner sometimes needs some time to themselves.
They love you, but that doesn’t mean you have to be there every second of their life. They’ll be happy to come home to you, but you don’t need to check where they are.
Give your partner time to himself.
Let them play their favorite video games, watch their favorite movies, and spend the night with their friends. When they really love you, cheating will disgust them, so don’t worry.
Just ask them to tell you what time he will be home for their own safety.
18: Be Attentive
There will be times in your relationship with your romantic partner that he or she fails to please you.
There will be times when they don’t want to be intimate and may want to be alone for a while.
This usually happens when they encounter problems at work.
Don’t pressure them to talk if they’re not ready. Be there and prepare yourself emotionally.
In today’s volatile and almost unpredictable economy, it’s hard to say that someone will be financially secured through a job.
Be considerate with your romantic partner if they are having trouble at work. If they have a health problem, help them find a cure instead of blaming them.
They see you as someone they can trust, so show them your love by being considerate.
19: Speak With Your Eyes
Words can convey meaning, but eyes reveal what your words may miss.
Couples who have been together for several months have a habit of communicating with each other without meeting each other’s eyes.
They are so used to each other’s presence that they begin to take it for granted.
When you first started dating, you probably remember that you couldn’t stop looking at each other and your attention was always on him while they were talking and vice versa.
Show your love to your romantic partner by rekindling this kind of attention.
When you are happy to see them, show your joy through your eyes and look into their eyes and smile.
When you’re feeling sensual, give her a seductive look with your eyes. When they tell you how their day went, look them in the eye and show interest.
20: Touch Them With Respect
Nothing shows you’re intimate more than physical touch.
Unlike friendly words and compliments, touching them will get their attention automatically because instinctively, people are aware of their personal space for their protection.
The normal distance between two ordinary people when talking to each other is usually 1.5 to 2 feet. Break this casual status by touching your partner.
According to David Givens, director of the Center for Nonverbal Studies in Spokane, Washington, “If seeing is believing, touching is knowing.”
The brain processes touch faster than words and as a result your partner feels more comfortable with light caressing than kind words. Adults are considered to be “touch deprived”.
They will feel comforted when loved ones touch them, be it in the form of hugs and pats.
To show your love better, add physical touch.
21: Pamper Each Other
Today’s adults are busier than ever.
Technology has also contributed to the decline in personal communication.
In the end, this makes most people feel tired and even unloved. Show your love for your partner by pampering them.
To make the experience even better and more meaningful, let him spoil you too.
People are attracted to something (or someone) that makes them feel good and happy. If you make your partner feel happy, you will be very attractive.
22: Cherish Your Memories Together
As sad as it sounds, there’s no promised tomorrow.
However, people carried on with their lives as if they were absolutely certain that they would live for another year.
It may sound inappropriate, but one day, you and your partner need to take a break.
Show your love for your partner by appreciating the moments you spend together.
Take lots of pictures (don’t post them all online), print them and make them into a book or scrapbook. You can even make collages and frame some of your favorite pictures.
Write the date on the back or in the corner.
Record family events on video.
Create personalized keepsakes (keychains, bracelets, pendants, etc) and store them in a special “memory box”.
Write down special dates (your first try together, etc).
On your anniversary or on Valentine’s day, open this box and see how far you have come in your relationship.
23: Accept Them
People often forget to thank others when they are used to them.
As if they have to do good without being recognized.
As someone special from your partner, you should show them appreciation more than anyone else (2).
Make it a habit in your love relationship to always be grateful to each other.
If your romantic partner brings home dinner, thank him with a smile and a kiss. Show that you really appreciate it. If you both have children, set an example of being grateful.
Before going to bed, write down the things you are grateful for that day. This will help you feel more satisfied and fulfilled in your relationship.
If you want to get creative, you can make or buy a card and make a list of things you want to thank.
24: Say “I Love You”
Say “I love you” instead of “love ya”. There is a big difference between the two.
Omitting the “I” pronoun makes it sound insincere.
These three words have to be special, so avoid saying them when you don’t really mean them.
If you’ve been together for a few months or years now, you may not feel the need to tell your romantic partner that you love them.
Why should you when your efforts are already “speaking” that you love them? Ask yourself, are you really doing it for love or routine?
They may not immediately interpret your efforts as love, so it’s still important to let them know how much you love them.
Look them in the eye while you do it and then touch and kiss them. He should feel a deep connection with you while you are doing this.
