Ways to Express Feelings of Love

Expressing love is actually more about actions rather than words. For what we all do repeatedly shows our true feelings and intentions. The best way to express feelings of love may include:

  • Showing appreciation for your loved one – through comments of thanks and gratitude, written texts and words.
  • Wanting the very best for your loved one – are you being their cheerleader in life?
  • Listening to them and their problems, concerns, dreams and aspirations.
  • Being there in the good and bad times,
  • Having ‘their back’ – do you present as a ‘team’ rather than individuals?
  • Making the grand gestures (flowers, concert tickets) and the small and just as meaningful everyday gestures (a cup of tea, getting their favorite chocolate etc).
