When sharing a deep connection with another person, saying “I love you” might seem natural… in theory. The reality is that, when it comes to those three magic words, some people express them too often while others cannot pronounce them at all, even if their life depended on it.
Whether you had a partner in the past who overuse the phrase thus ruining its special meaning, there were times when you wanted to say “I love you” but couldn’t, or you just wanted to wait until you were sure about the intense emotions in your chest, the truth is that sometimes you do not even have to say anything. Why? Because actions speak louder than words.
Here are 5 ways to show someone you love them.
Become an active listener
Although it might not seem like such a big deal, being an active listener even when the conversation gets boring represents a clear sign that you care about the other person’s thoughts, emotions, and opinions. Nowadays, many partners cannot help but send messages or waste time on Facebook instead of just paying attention to the other person and establishing eye contact while enjoying dinner or going for a walk. Listening to every single word that comes out of your partner’s mouth is necessary in order to maintain good communication.
