My husband is a showy person when it comes to what he feels. The hard part about it is that sometime you might misinterpet what he is showing you. My brothers are spoken type of lover, they will tell you alot of word abot how much they feel about you but their exs cries cause they say they can see it in their actions. My dad is none of the two. You can guess all you want and no confirmation will be declared. How about u?

i prefer that if u love somebody then showing and speaking both are equally important.if u feel something then it is necessary to express that feeling. so enjoy this beautiful feeling with lots of expression.

Love works both ways. I wouldn't have any preference because saying "I love you" is equally important as doing things to show your love. It's hard to separate the two. It's not like choosing between coffee or tea, or a red dress or a blue one. Cheers!

I prefer both! I believe love should be both spoken and shown.It is so nice to hear that someone loves you, but hearing it is not enough. SOme people constantly say that but do no show it through their actions. Saying it becomes their useless habits just to comfort a person, yet, do not really mean it. On the other hand, some people prefer to show it, yet do not have the courage to say it. This creates confusion, misunderstanding or at times, although the intention is good, is not even acknowledged. I think it is best to have a balance on both. Saying it assures the person that you do love him, and showing it means that you are sincere of what you are saying. Happy mylotting!

I am a little of both. I love to be shown that my man loves me, but I also like to hear him tell me how much I mean to him. I think it goes along with the languages of love that Gary Chapman talks about in his book "Five Love Languages." I know I put stock in both physical touch/quality time and words.
