How to Express Love – Tips
Some of the tips on how to express love are as follows;
Understanding your Lovers’ Needs
In order to share love through gifts and presents, you should know how your partner wants to receive gifts. You should use the same gesture the way your partner admires and appreciate. In fact, you should keep on using various gestures and techniques and keep evaluating the response of your partner. Some of the main five love languages that you should keep in mind while understanding the needs of your lover are as follows;
- Word of Affirmation: verbal expression of feelings and passing positive compliments
- Quality Time: paying attention to your partner and spending quality time with them
- Gift: tangible symbol of love in the form of clothes, jewelry, etc.
- Act of Service: making dinner, cleaning the house, doing laundry, etc
- Physical Touch: holding the handle, cuddling, and getting physically intimate
Verbally Expressing Feelings
It’s important to mention it here that your partner can’t read your mind that how much admire, appreciate, and value them. You should tell your partner that they’re charming and beautiful, and you love them the way they are. It never gets old no matter how many times you tell them that you value them.
- If you feel comfortable sharing your feelings in written words, then you should write a letter to your lover
- Leave a card for your partner by mentioning that you care about them and thinking about them
- You can share your feelings in the other language; make sure that your lover understands that language
Written and spoken words can’t replace affectionate gestures. When you’re accompanying your partner, then show affectionate gestures like putting arms around his/her shoulder, holding a hand, and touching her/his hair. The intimacy you develop through physical touch and proximity, you can’t have it any other way.
- You should keep in mind that some people are more affectionate than others; discuss with your partner how much and how often he/she wants to be affectionate
Spending Time Together
Our lives are busy and our attention is divided into so many things. Therefore, you should spend some quality time together with your partner. If you’ve got children, then hire a babysitter for a night or two. When you’re together with your partner, then your focus should be on the partner, instead of children, money, family, or something.
- It doesn’t mean that you have to make every date night romantic, you can engage in fun activities together and have some laughter together

When lovers and partners have a true commitment in the relationship, they should be kind to each other. You should perceive kindness as a flexible that would become better with practice.
- If you’re feeling tired and your partner needs you, then you shouldn’t avoid him/her. You pay attention to fixing and satisfying the needs o your partner
- Even during your conflicts and fights, you should be kind to your partner. If you haven’t been kind, then accept your unkind nature and fix the problem
Sharing Joy Moments
You should share your good news with your partner and be there for them in their happy moments and celebrate along with them. If your partner is going through a difficult time, then accompany them in such a time. Partners that celebrate happy moments, their relationship tend to remain stable in the long term. You should offer your support and attention to your partner when they share their good/bad news with you.
