I’ll be honest, there’s nothing more beautiful and heart-warming than hearing those three little words from the one and only love in your life.
It feels like suddenly time ceases to exist, and in that particular moment, there’s only you and the person next to you.
It’s true, we all want to hear “I love you”. However, there are certain things we do that have the power to scream the loudest and sincerest “I love you”, yet they don’t require us to use words.
It’s in the attention to detail, in the care for your partner, in those sweet little things that make our lives beautiful.
It’s allowing our actions to speak louder than our words.
Here are 8 effective and cute ways you can tell your partner you love them without saying the words:
1. SURPRISE THEM BY COOKING THEIR FAVORITE MEAL
It’s true that “the quickest way to a person’s heart is through their stomach,”. At least that’s the quickest way to my heart.
Try to cook them something special. Even if you’re not the best cook, just making the effort to surprise them with their favorite food will show them you care.
2. LEAVE THEM CUTE LOVE NOTES BEFORE WORK
Show them who much they mean to you by leaving them cute little notes before work or before you go to bed.
Leave the light outside the house if they work late. Leave them some leftover snacks or food when they’re too tired to do it themselves.
Life is all about those little acts of showing appreciation.
3. INVITE THEM FOR A DATE NIGHT IN YOUR FAVE RESTAURANT
Life can eventually become pretty boring if you forget to spice it up a bit.
Make a change in your work-home, boring routine and designate a date night. Dress up, go to your favorite restaurant and just enjoy yourself.
Take care of your relationship, refresh your bond and spend some quality time together!
4. WEAR THEIR FAVORITE OUTFIT
You two are the writers of your story. You are the producers of your movie. So, shall we play a game?
I say you surprise your partner by dressing up in their favorite outfit. Shake things up a bit and leave a very little to their imagination. You’ll thank me later.
5. GIVE THEM A WARM HUG AND A SLOPPY KISS WHEN THEY LEAST EXPECT IT
Is there anything better than a spontaneous kiss and hug from behind? I think not. It’s certainly something that could instantly make your partner’s day.
According to Dr. Mercola, hugging for ten seconds a day can “lower the risk of heart disease, reduce stress, fight fatigue, boost your immune system, fight infections, ease depression.”
Oh, and also helps you connect with your partner on a deeper level.
So, what are you waiting? Go hug your partner and never let them go!
6. SEND THEM A SEXY MESSAGE DURING THE DAY
Whether it’s a sexy preview of what you’ll be wearing for your night out, or a simple cute “How is your day baby?”, you should always send them a message during the day.
That way they’ll know you were thinking about them. You’ll leave them with a glistening smile all day.
7. TRY SOMETHING NEW YOU’D BOTH ENJOY
Try something new. Try something fun. The world is full of opportunities. You just have to ask for them. Go on a trip around Europe. Go to the opera. Treat yourself to a night out in the new Cuban bar and dance your heart out. Stay wild.
8. BE MORE SPONTANEOUS
Life is a never-ending cycle of work, debts, lack of energy, fatigue, errands, and whatnot. I know it sounds pretty grim when you put it like that, but, it’s up to you whether you’ll allow that vicious cycle to turn you into a working zombie, or you’ll just go with the flow.
We only get one life, so you make sure to dedicated to enjoying and living it to the fullest. Try to be more spontaneous. Break out of your routine and express your love.
