Communication is the bedrock of every relationship. There is nothing that keeps a relationship strongly bonded like expressing and communicating how much you love, cherish and adore your partner.
The conventional “I Love you” is an obvious and straightforward way to communicate how we feel to our partners but as time goes by it could become really boring to hear and could even turn out to appear like a normal greeting.
It could sound funny but true. “My family and friends tell me that they love me so what makes the one you say so special and unique” could be what goes on in your partners mind especially if your partner needs more assurance from you that you truly love and care about them.
I would like you to know that saying “I Love you” is not the only way to express or communicate the way you feel to your partner, they are many beautiful, creative and very romantic ways to spice up that part a little. Trust me, you would see how it works like magic.
Everyone in a relationship wants to be assured by their partner that they are not alone on the journey but they are in it together and this assurance boost relationship and builds intimacy.
The way we communicate our feelings to our partner could either build up our relationship or cause it to wither. Your relationship is like a plant (flower) you have to nurture it consciously and deliberately for it to grow or blossom or else it dies. Be intentional about affirming your love and affection to your partner it is necessary for a strong and happy relationship.
There are ways to say “I Love You” to your partner without even using words and it can be hard to make sense of your own feelings when you’re in love because these feelings are usually overwhelming and hard to put into words, but at the same time, your heart can grow really heavy if there are no ways to express your love because you want your partner to truly understand how passionate your feelings are for them.
Here are a few ways to express how passionate you feel about your partner using “Actions”
- Display how much you care for your partner by grabbing your partner’s hand, wrap your arms around them, pull them close for a hug, kiss, cuddle when they are relaxing or spending the night together, invent a secret handshake, give then a special smile or wink that is meant for them alone.
- Waking your partner up with a kiss or peck and serving breakfast in bed.
- Join your partner when they are taking care of things they normally do on their own. Offer to help out and Play alongside as you both do things together.
- Give your partner undivided attention when you are talking or having fun together. If you have your phone, tuck it away. Go for a long walk together, take an art or a dancing class together, try a new restaurant, share your goals and desires with your partner and go to a work out class together.
- Plan fun activities, outings and dates for you and your partner, give them a surprise treat. You can create a romantic “mixtape” of meaningful love songs made specially for your partner. You could also sing personal songs and create videos that portray how special they are to you and how much their presence in your life has been a blessing.
- Surprise your partner with a special gift when its neither their birthday nor any special occasion, create a collage of special photos and frame of special occasional photos of your memories together just to show how much you love and appreciate them.
- Hold your partner’s hand or gaze deeply into their eyes. Studies have shown that deep gazing into your partner’s eyes can increase love and intimacy. Let it flow, be natural as possible.
- Give your partner quality time making romantic gestures and sometimes you can say “I Love you” by pushing your partner against a wall and making love to your partner. This is a good romantic gesture for mostly for men because men actually feel and express love more with physical expression than with words. Men happen to speak their love languages best in body language.
- Leave hide-and-seek love letters. Write little love notes to your partner and leave them in unexpected places where they will eventually be found, such as in a sock drawer, a packed lunch or even in the freezer. Using sticky notes you can place your love note on their car, on their bag, just be creative about it. That way, they will regularly be surprised by your thoughtfulness.
- As your day goes, send then some romantic messages to show that you are thinking about them and cherish them. You could say; Smiling so much today just thinking of you, Just wanted to thank you for being you, I hope you know how much you mean to me, I’m so glad you’re in my life, You are so amazing, You mean so much to me, you could send a sweet sticker, GIF, emoji, and so much more.
