How do you show your love? Are good in saying it, like saying 'i love you" to someone you love, to your parents, siblings and gf/bf, husband/wife? Or you just do good things, like giving gifts, plan surprises, and believe that "action speaks louder than words". Me? i just show it because im not good in saying it, i feel that when i say it im just fooling the person and i believe that its not about saying it its about how you say it.Although i believe it has be said... maybe its my thing.. lol

Showing love... saying it... both necessary. My husband used to talk about this, at one time, he told me, he doesn't say it all the time like I do, because he doesn't want "I love you" to be just an expression that comes every after each word. He wants to keep the magic and say it when it feels too much. As like him, I am feeling this way. Say it when you feel like saying it, and mean it when you do. I don't say I love you just because I know he wants to hear that, I don't say I love you to him just because I need to, I say I love you when I mean it and it feels too much... Also, showing love is necessary, all the time, there should be love. And the ways to show love doesn't always have to be that great... Sometimes, simple things like a hug, a kiss, a touch in the hand, a dinner together, a smile, all this things, simple, but full of love. ... I guess, when you say things and when you do things from your heart, it doesn't really matter if you say it or do it... just be sincere, sure that you will make them feel how much you care and love them.

Usually with my gf I usually tell her I love you,but she wanted me more to show it then tell it. She rather me giving her hug and kisses all the time hahaha. With my parents I like to just show it by doing my obligations and responsibility to them. I love to see them smile especially when I do achieved something to my life,they feel proud that I am their one and only son.Have a nice day!

I try to do both as often as I can. I always tell my boyfriend and my other friends and family I love them, and they know they mean a lot to me. I also try to do considerate things to show them I care and am thinking about them. I hug my friends and family whenever I see them and my boyfriend I hug and kiss all the time.

show it..Saying is useless when you don't stand and do what you've said to your love one..right? Everyone can be trick by saying good lies..Even though you're not good at saying but at least you can prove what you wanna show and feel for that person.. In love..you must show your sincerity and trust to your love one to have better relationship..
