I am not an outwardly expressive person by nature. I have had to learn by force to be outwardly expressive, but that is not my nature, nor was I raised this way. But to my loved ones and I, this is not a big deal, because we express our love in other ways. To us, Action is a Verb! I can tell you all day that I love you, but if actions were not attached to that I Love You, that I Love You is quite insigificant, in my eyes.
So I say that to say, expressing my love to my loved ones is good, but not always necessary, unless for some reason, assurance of this love is in order. We have all had times where we did not feel so loved, and we needed that I LOVE YOU, said from a sincere heart, but in a general sense, no, I am not verbal like that. Perhaps I should be? I don't know.
