How to express your love to someone you love?

So, you’ve decided that it’s time to tell that special someone how you feel? Well, congrats! But wait’…you’re not exactly sure what to say or do? Don’t worry. We’re here to help.

We’ve put together a list of tips and tricks on how to express your love in a way that will make the other person swoon (or at least crack a smile).

Keep It Simple, Stupid

First things first: don’t try too hard. You don’t need grand gestures or elaborate plans. Sometimes the simplest acts can speak volumes. Here are some ideas:

  • Cook them their favorite meal
  • Write them a heartfelt letter
  • Leave little notes around the house for them (‘Good Luck Today’, ‘I appreciate you’)
  • Hold their hand when watching movies
  • Tell them something only they would know about themselves

It really is true – sometimes less is more.

Show You Care With Actions

While words are important, actions prove even more so (unless you constantly leave passive-aggressive Post-it Notes everywhere like me). So be sure your words match up with your actions. If you say “I love spending time with you”, but then cancel plans last minute or always choose hanging out with friends over date night – those sweet nothings fall flat pretty quickly.

What Are They Interested In?

Another way of showing affection is by participating in hobbies & passions they have; simply being there as support can mean everything from rock climbing adventures on Tuesdays nights after work — all while keeping within social distancing!–to scrapbooking niche Hamilton musical theatre memorabilia arrangements for hours non-stop ^(everyone has an inner fan-girl!). The point isn’t necessarily about sharing interests as much as experiencing one another’s passions together which promotes further bonding opportunities between two.

Practice Empathy

When expressing your love, it’s important to put yourself in their shoes. How would you want to be treated? Think about the things they might like or appreciate (useful tip: take cues from any wandering conversations and what sparks joy/yawn respectively). This shows that not only do you care but your focus aligns with theirs which makes for a delightful conversation starter!

Offering Support & Understanding

That said, everyone has bad days. It’s nearly impossible to discern when our partners may be having one of them without being told directly– unless of course we’re all developed Claire Voyants here who also happen to have magic powers — so practicing patience and listening skills is key when approaching such instances of emotional outburst-flares within that special someone as this can foster an environment towards trust; however it should always factor both ways ^(No one wants folks playing therapist constantly neglecting their own well-being.)

Learn The Art Of Self-Care

We’ve all heard the saying ‘you can’t pour from an empty cup’. Well guess what’? That doesn’t just apply in normal day-to-day life – it applies to relationships too! Maintaining self-care helps ensure a healthy balance between giving time/affection to someone while still keeping up with individual day-to-day bizz-ness ^(Homographs are fun huh?!).

How Can You Take Care Of Yourself While Nurturing Your Relationship?

A primary example could involve setting boundaries around work hours, incorporating self-reflection through meditation practices tailored-courses/trainings anchored by learning goals/self-affirmations/visualization exercises. Announcing intention-setting meetings every quarter can be uplifting ventures geared at boosting communication avenues aimed at growth development inclusive for both parties.

Know When To Walk Away

Listen, sometimes things just don’t work out – even despite best intentions put forward from everyone involved! Knowing (respectfully)when enough-is-enough will save everyone heartache and time. Don’t try to force something that just may not be there.

Be honest, transparent, and express your emotions in a mature way; offering closure– where applicable or possible when closing the chapter on any relationship– is always a great rule of thumb.

It Ok To Move On

If walking away is the answer to prioritizing both self-healing/devotion to personal growth then don’t apologize for it! Afterall, true love never includes forcing someone into sticking around ^(well…that just sounds creepy). The important thing? Is giving oneself permission No matter how much invested thought/time/effort poured into those romantic paths towards new beginnings which can feel defeated, but also incredibly liberating (in hindsight).

Final Thoughts

Ultimately, every individual is different’ as are our ways of expressing and interpreting different acts of fidelity & endearment^(mic drop!).So put these tips to use while still keeping the uniqueness of your partner in mind; after all they’re perfectly imperfect & vise versa.

Expressing love should never have a one-size-fits-all blueprint nor require an M.A degree from A Bachelor’s in Psychology major (sound familiar?). Just being vulnerable enough to let someone know they’re special goes miles beyond what fancy opening-lines or elaborate movie-level stunts could ever do.

Remember: When it comes down to it, there’s truly no right or wrong way. Go with your gut (& brain too–albeit sometimes tricky!–)and have fun with this whole ‘I like-like you’ phase creatively devolving together.…Good luck!
