How To Say 'I Love You' Without Actually Saying It

Feb 23, 2016


Saying I love you doesn't always have to be those three words, there are many other ways to say I love you without actually saying it! Saying I love you is one of the most important things in a marriage or relationship and it can get to be very repetitive and sometimes those words can lack luster when said over and over again.

Here are some ways to say I love you without actually saying it:

  • Looks & Gestures- taking the time to stare into each others eyes and holding hands
  • Hugging & Kissing- hugging when you don't want to or always making sure to kiss each other before you leave for school or work
  • Phrases that are not I love you
    • "You make me feel safe and secure" 
    • "I want your opinion..." this shows that you care about his opinion
    • "Text/Call me when you get home" they want to make sure that you are safe
    • "I'm proud of you" 
    • "I respect you" this one is especially important for men, they need respect more than love
  • Sharing your food when you don't want to
  • Getting the car in the rain so they don't have to get wet
  • Listening to their music when you don't like it- or talk radio
  • Unexpected things or a card just because and not for a holiday or birthday
  • Saying "It's okay"
  • Supporting them no matter what
  • Being yourself and accepting of them
I'm know that there are many, many other ways to say I love you and this list is just a few. Love is a beautiful thing and recognizing it is very important.

I always turn to 1 Corinthians 13:4-7 which says

"Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres." (NIV)

What are your favorite ways to say I love you without actually saying it?
