The question would be that I have loved terribly if I need to answer it a year past. I hadn’t been in 10 years. I haven’t adored a guy in 10 years, although I really like friends that have come into my entire life and my family. I have been attempting to determine what love means to me. Is it this unexplainable emotion? Is it what? Is it that thing they tell us around in the pictures?
We are all a bit frightened of love, but I expressly attempted to prevent it for such a long time, that when I got back in the dating match, I’d no notion what it meant or how it felt.
Last year I dated a guy that if it were not for him, I likely wouldn’t be where I’m now. The one was patient, understanding, exposed and reliable. He opened up to me in a sense that most guys do not do now a days in an extremely short period of time. In return I opened back and trusted him.
We remained in touch and became buddies, although it did not work out for us though we attempted a few times. I felt something for him that I could not comprehend even though we were buddies. After we dated, I phoned since I needed to share something with him.
I told him I love you, he did not say it back. Myself did not want him to. Even if myself was not certain what love actually was, I valued this guy’s function in my life, cared greatly about him and I did not need to go on not acknowledging it.
I just did it for myself. If myself can not love openly and candidly, then what is the point in everything I was doing? If he was not the one (and he is not), myself needed to be able to tell anyone.
Do we love to be loved back? If we do, We are self-centered, are seeking validation, and don’t adore for the correct reason, if we do. Then there is no demand to hear it back in the event you do not consider yourself to be any of these things.
It does not mean it is not difficult to do. Loving without having it reciprocated freely is difficult.
Recently, on a cross-country flight, my husband and I were seated on opposite sides of the aisle. Several times, he leaned toward me to ask, “Would you like a bite of my sandwich?” “Can I get you some water?” Once he offered to share the last bite of his cookie. A while later, he reached over and put his hand my arm, just to say, “Hi.”
At the end of the flight the woman next to me said, “Your husband really loves you. I can tell.”
And she’s right. He does.
As couples, we express love through our everyday actions — our gestures of kindness, our generosity, our attention, our touch.
We say, “Drive safely.” “Take an umbrella.” We kiss each other goodnight.
And our spouse hears,”I love you,” in a way that touches more deeply than words.
We all have our favorite ways to show love. Here are some of mine:
1. Do the stuff neither of you wants to do. Someone has to call the plumber, resolve the mystery charge on the credit card, figure out what in the refrigerator is making that smell. Go ahead. Be the one.
2. Cut your partner some slack. We all forget things, lose things, or screw things up. Why rub it in?
3. Flirt. You’re never too old or married too long to make it clear that the two of you have still got it going on. Credits: 25 Ways to Say “I Love You” Without Saying a Word | Kindness Blog

Try to integrate these habits into your daily life and see how much happier your relationship can be. Credits: 100 Ways To Say I Love You – Lifehack.org
Telling someone you love them is great. Getting to do it creatively is even better. Here are a few ideas for how you can show you care in a different and unique way.
1. Buy a custom t-shirt or mug with “I Love You” and put the person’s name on the item.
2. Send them a sing-o-gram.
3. Leave a love note under the pillow, in a lunch bag or in the car. Credits: 10 Creative ways to say “I love you” | WOTV4women.com
