5 Best Ways To Say "I Love You!"
To Love Someone....
Love is an emotion of strong affection and personal attachment that a person may feel for another person or even a particular object. Love is an emotion that has different facets. Some of the types of love that are found throughout a person's life are parental and spousal. Certain love is real while others are not. Love is one of the three things that will always last forever, besides hope and faith according to 1 Corinthians 13:13. To love, to be loved, and to show love are all different ways of defining love. The meaning of love is an unconditional and caring emotion for a particular person and a desire for them to succeed and to be happy, no matter what that may entail. The meaning of love can run very deep and be the root cause of many other emotions.
Love can be difficult, complex, and maybe even longed for. Love just happens and most of the time is found when a person is not even looking for it. The topic of love and all of the facets that are involved are great in number and can range from a variety of things. Love is different than lust, a crush, and even a fling which can turn into love over a duration of time.
The Expression of Love
There are many different ways for a person to express love for another person and to another person. Expressing love can be done accomplished traditionally, creatively and modernly, and even through a combination of all three. The ways and frequency love are expressed vary for each person and some times for each sex. Women tend to express love and other emotions more often and more openly than men do, through affection and by saying it. Men tend to keep it all on the inside, but still feel it. Expressing love for and to another person can be as simple as a small gesture or a thoughtful surprise, but it is always the thought that counts for any expression of love. Everyone expresses it differently, but some best ways to express love are general.
Do You Say It?
How often do you say "I love you" to special people in your life?
7 Best Ways To Say "I Love You!"
There are many different ways to tell someone special that you love them, but there are some creative ways that tell a person that include much more meaning and require little to no words at all. Actions do speak louder than words, and sometimes just saying it to a loved one may not be enough. This hub will explain the best ways to say "I love you" to those special people. These best ways are creative and thoughtful but are also full of sincere emotion.
1. Put Their Feelings on a Silver Platter.
The formal definition of a silver platter idiom is "to give something to somebody without expecting them to do or give anything in return" and an example of this context includes not hurting their feelings and doing/trying everything possible every day not to. Putting their feelings above your own. This can also be the definition of real and true love, which can sometimes be hard to find. But continuing to do this each and every day is the best way to say "I love you!" because it also shows respect, interest, and acceptance. This will also encourage the same behavior to be reciprocated in return.
2. Small and Random Gestures Often.
This can be more true for women. Women highly enjoy small gestures, like a present while getting gas, at the most random time and more than once per year. Men also enjoy being spoiled with small and random gestures too, but maybe not as often as women do. These simple yet special gestures can mean so much to someone that you love because they may be having a bad day at that time and that gesture could change the rest of their day. Sometimes it could also be as serious as that gesture could even save a life. You never know!
3. Undivided Attention!
Undivided attention is giving someone your entire attention. As in no cell phones, video games, or television distractions and for longer than five to ten minutes. This is a very non-physical but intimate way to say "I love you!" because you are putting that person above all other things that may be important to you at that particular moment in time. Great examples of this are:
- Having nothing in your hands while interacting.
- Looking at that person directly while interacting.
- Not interrupting or distracting while the other person is taling.
4. Do Things Without Being Told.
This is a great way to say that you love a person without actually saying it to them. But this can also differ greatly from men to women although it is important equally to both parties. Women like for men to take out the trash or clean out the garage without being told to. On the other hand, men like for women to grab them a beer without them being told to. This shows motivation and determination to make that person happy.
