He may not feel your love until you really make the effort to put it into action.
So prove yourself and your emotions with these 14 ways to show your love.
If you feel some distance between you and your loved one, saying the three magic words won’t work, and nothing can bring you closer than showing your love.
Here are some ways to back up your words with actions.
Words are powerful, but people will only buy them if they have substance.
If you say you’re a great partner, you should be one too.
So what makes a great partner?
Let’s look at some habits you can break that don’t help with this problem, and some new ones you can create to put your words to work.
After all, actions speak louder than words.
1. Bring Positive Energy Every Day
Perhaps the most challenging thing in our relationship is realizing how much our fluctuating attitudes affect the other person.
If you are negative, he will not feel your love, even if the negativity is not directed at him.
If you love him, you will protect the energy he brings each day, and then, like a plastic artist, you face him with smiles and infuse positivity into your day.
Everyone loves being around someone who lifts the mood, it’s contagious, right?
One of the best ways to show him that you love him is to be a beacon of positivity.
If you make it a point to wake up every day with a smile and choose positive words at all times, he will appreciate your energy.
What does it mean to say I love you anyway?
It means I like your energy, right?
Save your words and avoid talking negatively about other people.
Focus on the positive traits of people and yourself.
If you really want to make someone’s life better because you love them, radiate love.
2. Be Supportive And Excited About His Life
Showing love means showing interest in what interests him.
You have to understand what motivates him, why he spends his time this way, and show him that it means something to you.
Maybe he loves sports, maybe he’s a family guy, and maybe he’s a bookworm or jack of all trades.
Whatever he wants to do with his life, it’s your mission to help him get there.
Believe in your dreams; help them to come true by encouraging you but not pressuring you.
Positively reinforce his goals by putting your energy into them as well.
You don’t have to lose sight of your own goals but show your support.
Maybe find a class he can take and pay for it.
Maybe get a book about something he’s learning.
Perhaps it recognizes your hard work and will book a message.
Words of encouragement go far, but actions go farther.
Do things to achieve your goals, but don’t get in the way and try to control things.
You can judge ways to support him more than just saying “that’s a great idea, good luck”.
3. Keep Your Word
This is a big problem.
If you say you will do something, don’t be discouraged.
If you love someone, you will value their time and energy.
It’s important to show people that you think more than your own agenda, or they won’t really feel that you have the ability to value anyone but yourself.
Being responsible and trustworthy is a rare trait and it shows a lot when you are organized and responsible.
It gives you a sense of security.
Part of love is trust; following his word builds it.
4. Plan The Things He Loves
Well, here’s something pretty obvious, but we often forget.
We become so involved in our own lives that the partner becomes more convenient than someone we actively demonstrate that we love every day.
Don’t get into the habit of letting the days go by without planning things for him.
You don’t have to spend a fortune to put your love into action.
Movies are cheap and you can surprise him with popcorn and a movie you think he’d like.
5. Make I Love You Tokens
Shower him with your love so he can feel it.
Go ahead, use your hands and do something.
If you’re not astute, look for ideas on Pinterest.
If you’re totally intimidated, buy something.
But seriously, thoughtful and sentimental gestures like old-fashioned love letters are a good way to put your words into action.
Surprise him in fun ways with small “out of the blue” gifts.
Playlists, art, goodies, and tickets are fun ideas and you can’t go wrong with photos (yes, I know printed photos are dated, but they’re cute).
Personalized jewelry is long-lasting and also shows your love for him!
6. Put Your Love In Food
We’ve all heard that the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach, and that idea is valid.
You can show him how much you care by roasting, chopping, scorching, mixing, and blasting your way to his heart.
I can’t guarantee he’ll love you if you make him a delicious raspberry chocolate tiramisu, but I would love to.
Keep his preferences in mind and remember: he will be impressed when you do your best to make him special.
No microwave dinners and no easy snacks.
Use your imagination or search for ideas online if you can’t.
7. Look For Ways To Decrease His Stress
Often our loving actions can be aimed at helping our man just enjoy life.
Maybe that means diffusing essential oils, lighting candles, and playing soothing music at home.
It can also mean making lavender, chamomile, or kava tea.
Maybe it means doing something relaxing, like taking a walk on the beach together.
If you don’t live near a beach, a nature walk is very relaxing!
Maybe he has a lot to do and if you have some free time, you could help him.
8. The Finishing Touch – One Of The Simplest Ways To Show Your Love
If he’s had a rough day, chances are he has some stress building up somewhere in his body.
The shoulders are the first area to contain tension, and you can offer to give them a massage.
Maybe watch a YouTube video about Thai massage or Swedish massage, but any massage is more effective than doing nothing.
He will probably really appreciate it.
9. Don’t Flirt With Other Men
If you’re going to tell him you love him, you better do it.
If you’re used to getting attention from other men, this will need to change.
If he sees you flirting, he won’t feel that you love him as much.
When you show him that you’re confident in who we are, he’ll feel like he can trust you.
It’s common for people to still act single when they start dating someone, and then wonder why the man leaves.
If a man has your heart, you won’t be interested in other guys anyway.
Be considerate and tell anyone who might be interested in you that you’re dating someone so your partner feels like you’re not hiding them.
Make it clear to people that you are in a relationship so they know you are proud to be their girlfriend.
10. Introduce Him To Your Family
Nothing says I want you in my life more than bringing you into your circle of trust.
It makes your love for him feel that much more real when you introduce him to your family.
Of course, you want to take him seriously before introducing him to your family, out of consideration for them.
They don’t have to cater to all passing interests, just the good ones.
Your family doesn’t want to get attached to someone they’ll never see again, so try to abide by the six-month rule.
Basically, after six months, you have a pretty good idea if things are working or not.
The other option is to ask if he would like to invite his family to do things with you.
He’ll know you have it when you’re trying to get to know your family and thinking about spending time with them.
When you invest time in your relationship, you are putting your love into action.
11. Work On Yourself
One of the best ways to show that you love him is to try to manage your own emotions and communication style.
Try to balance your own life with healthy eating, managing your own stress, and getting regular exercise.
When we look in the mirror and try to find ways to contribute more positively to relationships, we are actively demonstrating our love.
Don’t bore him with every self-discovery you make, because that’s just self-indulgence.
Focus on learning techniques to manage your PMS and emotional swings.
12. Plan A Happy Future
If you really love this guy and are serious about planning a future together, you can always ask him questions about the ideal place to live and what kind of life he envisions.
You can think long-term and budget for the future.
Maybe create a savings account with your future life in mind.
Maybe start researching homes in the area you want to live in if you’re planning to buy.
If you’re not at the home buying stage or not the buying type, you can also strive to ensure your career is something that will last longer than the short term.
When you take your life seriously, it shows that you’re ready to be a responsible spouse and maybe put your crazy party days to the past.
13. Don’t Be Obsessed With Yourself
If you tell him you love him but only talk about your life and your problems all the time, he won’t feel like you really do.
When we talk only about ourselves, it’s more like using someone than loving someone.
Make it a point to listen and really give feedback.
Remember that his life is just as challenging as yours and he needs an ear as you do.
Try not to complain and vent too much to him.
He is not your sounding board to turn to whenever someone hurts your feelings.
Happiness comes from within, not from him.
14. Give Him Some Space
One of the most selfless things you can do in a relationship gives him some space.
Don’t worry about demanding all his time.
He needs time to be alone and with his friends and family.
Don’t be the needy girl who won’t let you do anything alone.
Show that you trust him when you decide to stay home and let him hang out with the guys.
You don’t have to avoid it; just don’t keep the man on a leash.
The surest way to get rid of a man is to smother him.
If you love him, show him by giving him the freedom to be himself.
Think about showing him that you love him in ways other than just getting compliments.
Don’t give him something to get a compliment, and do things for him expecting something in return.
Make your labor of love without expectations.
Do things because you genuinely want his life to be good, you want him to keep smiling, and you care about how he feels.
Relationships, well, healthy relationships are an amazing way to remind ourselves how to be selfless and genuinely care for another human being.
Make sure you spend more time making him happy than worrying about what he’s not doing for you.
Positive thinking builds healthy relationships and negative thinking generates arguments and ugly ways of looking at the world.
Life is what you choose to see, turn it into a masterpiece.
