10 Ways To Say 'I Love You' Without ACTUALLY Saying The Words

Buzz, Love

Subtle.

One of the best things about love is that there are SO many ways to say “I love you” without actually having to say those words. Whether you feel like you already overuse this phrase or you just like to get creative, now is the perfect time to try something new.

With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, you can either say “I love you” like you do every year (or maybe aren't READY to do that quite yet), or you can say something that is more heartfelt and full of emotion.


The Date Report

You may not know this, but we already tell people that we love them without even realizing it.

Whenever your best friend drives home after a night out with you and you say, “Text me when you get home,” you’re saying that you worry about their safety.

When you ask your significant other, “Can I make you something to eat?” you’re telling him that you care about him.

And this worry and care that you have for the people in your life isn’t just those two feelings; what you really mean is that you love them and you want them to know it.

So, instead of telling your boo on Valentine’s Day “I love you” (I’m sure they already know you do), say something that genuinely comes from the heart and sounds more like you.

Even if you’re not a romantic person, you don’t have to force yourself to say something that sounds like it came straight from The Notebook.
