10 Ways To Say “I Love You” And Mean It by George O.N
“I love you” is a very special word but also very common. Beyond the words, there are ways to express your love. If you love to know, we have put down some list to help you make your love for them known.
1. Older wine seems to be the best wine.
Okay, I don’t mean drinking wine is how to make it happen. “I love you” is an ancient word. Although common, it still makes a lot of sense and spurs emotions. As old as it is, it remains the best. Don’t get tired of telling those you love that you love them.
2. The taste of the pudding is in the eating.
Do you agree? As humans, it is usually something that attracts us to people which results in a commitment of love. Always tell your loved ones why you love them or what makes them special. Always tell them how beautiful and good they are. Remember, beauty is in the eyes of the beholder.
3. Words may speak a hundred, actions speak a thousand.
Sounds nice, right? It’s not just right, it is also true. Take your time to love, love requires that you sacrifice time for those you love and when you give them your time, you are saying “you are more important than anything I should be doing at this moment.”
4. The gift of a man makes room for him.
Unfortunately, some people only make room for themselves on special occasions. You don’t have to wait for special occasions to give your loved one’s gift. People always expect gifts on special days, so it may not mean so much. You don’t have to break a bank, a simple but unexpected gift communicates love in a tremendous way.
5. To get to a certain destination, you must keep moving even when it seems boring.
Truth is, it won’t be as boring as you thought. Consistency is one way to reaffirm your love over and over again. Your relationship may be doing just great but adding some spice will make it even better! When you are consistent with being caring, loving and helpful, it creates a habit of love in you. When you have the habit of love in you, you love effortlessly.
6. I like it when you touch me!
Everyone loves when their loved ones touch them. Affection is strong and loud even when no words have been spoken. Things like hug, touch and kiss have been proven by science to be of mental and physical benefits. Depending on the level of your intimacy with someone you love, a touch, hug or kiss can say a thousand words.
7. A friend in need is a friend indeed.
This is not just true in the world of cliches, it is just the truest of all truths in friendship. When you go out of your way to help your loved ones even when it may not be convenient for you, you are saying “your happiness matter to me more than anything else”. Love is not a mere feeling but commitment.
8. Respect is embedded in love.
We can only say a relationship is healthy when it is built on the foundation of respect. No matter how familiar you get with your loved ones, love respects despite all.
9. Self-love, it’s about me first!
This right here is never proof that you’ve got love in you to share. True love is not selfish, it puts others first. Some people think that putting others first is a weakness but that’s not true. When you give preference to the needs and comfort of your loved ones, it’s a loud way of saying “your happiness is more important to me than anything else.”
10. Love makes us vulnerable
Anyone who can’t truly Drop his or her guard haven’t truly loved. More like trust, love should be able to make us humble and willing to open up to our loved ones. By being open, you are being truthful. Another way to say it is, “be real!” Being open to your loved ones makes it easy for them to understand you and appreciate you for who you are. And this way, you are saying “I trust you enough to show you who I am.”
Love is a beautiful thing! 1Corinthians 16:14 says “let all that you do be done in love”. By doing this, Jesus said, “all people will know that you are my disciple.”
