    What are the different ways men express love?

    In my experience, men tend to be less sentimental about it and will do things that show their love. The more you appreciate the things they do, then the more apt they are to continue expressing love in whatever fashion.

      My husband is amazing he tells me he loves me and that's wonderful, but what he really does that matters is showing love through his actions.  Men love to solve problems and to feel they are doing something tangible to help those they love.  My hubby tends to fix things without being asked for example, or he'll take initiative and throw in a load of laundry or do the dishes if I'm swamped with other things.  If I mention anything at all he will try to do something to help, for example if I say something like ooh, it's kind of chilly - he'll get up and go check the thermostat lol.  He's just that way.  Those little things are a better expression of love than just words in my opinion.

    I believe both men and women express their love for one another through acts of kindness and consideration.
    Every individual has their own internal representation of what love is supposed to "look like" and how it feels to be loved.
    There is no one size fits all approach to love.
    When people don't (feel) loved the way (they want) to be loved they become frustrated and say things like:
    "If you really loved me you would....etc"
    There are two basic reasons why someone would not give a person what they've asked for and have expressed it's importance.
    1. They don't have it to give. (It's just not who {they} are.)
    2. They don't believe (you) are worth the effort.
    I suppose the goal is to find someone who (naturally expresses) love "the way" (you want) to be loved.
    I once dated a woman who measured my love by how willing I was to be inconvenienced, change my plans, jump through hoops, or do things (she knew) I did NOT enjoy in order to please her.
    One day I realized she really didn't love me!
