You can show your love in two ways. 1. verbally 2. by your acts You can say things like "I love you" , you mean a lot to me, you are my life, you are cute, intelligent etc etc and show your love. Alternatively you can show your love by your actions. You can hug them, kiss, stroke hair, etc etc. You can give gifts often. Help them whenever they need. You can spend your time with them very effectively. How do you show your love to your dear ones?

hello dear brother, I am not a showy person..and i am not also good at speaking. I express my love on my own special ways. My loved ones can feel how much i love them from the things they'd given to me. I had files of album with cards,greetings,gift wrappers...notes,ribbons say it,name it,i had it kept for all these years. Yes,i am a sentimental person, i value things that looks and seems useless to others. Just like how i value the person who give me importance in their lives. I can kissed and hugs and say i love you...but not as often as i could. But,i never wasted any minute of the day to tell my loved ones how much i loved them each time i had the chance to say and do.

I would just love those lovely ideas dear jai. Walking along the beach holding hands, having a candle light dinner, music etc etc.. Everything is here in Chennai except a partner. For me all the 365 days are almost the same. so let me wish you all a very very happy Valentine's day.

Hi If they are small children, I will carry them in my arms and, pet them, caress their hair, hug and kiss them, play with them and shower them with lots of gifts. If they are adults, I will make calls to them and talk to them very very affectionately and lovingly and frequently I will chat with them online or send gift cards and greetings for their birthday or any other occasion and if they are nearby I will visit them often with sweets and try to spend some effective time with them

I care them a lot and will be there around when they need my help. I will comfort them when they are depressed, nurse them when they are sick. On the whole I will be their right hand when I love them

Not by words, ofcourse! I show it by means of saying sorry for all the wrong things I have caused them. I love them so much, and I do not want to hurt their feelings.

hi, anjohanna, that is a good point-not to hurt them. If we try sincerely we can avoid hurting our dear ones most of times.

My husband likes certain food items a lot. They are his favourites. So I prepare them and give him to eat. It is told that we can win a man's heart through his stomach. So I do that. On the other hand, when we were newly married, I told him that I like jasmine flowers and pan meetha beeda (sweet betel leaves beeda). So whenever we go out he gets flowers and beeda for me. Daily we buy some flowers to keep for God. He asks me to keep some from that in my hair. When we go out, he will say buy more and keep to your heart's content. These words give me more happiness than getting a diamond ring from him.

Like a typical south Indian woman you take efforts to cook well. Yes flowers though not costly can give a lot of closeness and satisfaction to the couple. Mylotters from other countries may not be able to understand this though.

I am not more on verbal I am more on actions. I prove them I love them by providing for them, by giving all they want and needs. By obeying them, by doing all the can make them happy. I do hug them, sing for them, make them laugh, and I can also make them cry, I can tell them how much I love them, but I only do it occasionally, which I think it is wrong. While we have a chance we tell them we love them, we don't know tomorrow brings. I know they love me too but they are not the doing it verbally, it is by taking care of me.

I tried to show my love for my ex husband by kissing, hugging, holding hands and saying "Love you". He would often not respond. I tried to help him when needed, and I really wanted to spend more time with him, but he was too focused on his children. I ended the marriage.

Oh It is so sad jenny. But focusing his love on your children is a good thing only. But He would have spent quality time with you too.You gave a good attempt to keep the relationship interesting but still it could not last, it is all in the game of love and life.

As you so accurately state, we can show love by our endearing words that reflect how we feel about them in our heart and show love and also by our actions. In our actions, we can give generously of our time. Also when they are in need we can meet that need by caring for them.

Yes, 1hopefulman, we can spend quality time with them and make them happy.

I show my love through both words and action. I hug my husband and kiss him and tells him that I love him. Also by doing stuff for him like preparing his meal, washing his clothes. etc.

I show love to my love ones specifically through action than saying or telling beautiful and flowery words. I go with the saying "Actions speaks louder than words" that's why I used actions than telling. I not so comfortable to say it frequently, I love to tell through writing rather than in verbal . But If I heard it from my dear love ones, I love it and I accept it with all of my heart. But in me I cannot say it straight. I'm a kind of acting than saying . Happy mylotting here vijayanths.

aside from displaying my affections publicly, i never fail to understand my husband whom i love so much.i give the patience needed to make our relationship work.i also give a lot of hugs and kisses when we are together,give him smacks even if its not needed and tap on the shoulder when times seems tough.i do things which i want to be done on me , and it did help the relationship grow.i never fail to say i love you eveyday,give him cards even there's no special occasions.and he also does the same to me.there are mornings when i wake up having roses on the side of my bed.small gestures as this makes you feel loved.

For me the best way to show your love to your love ones is through action cuz "Action speaks louder than your words". Words are merely words you cant really know how a person love you when the person itself does not show it to you, you cant really tell if that person is just faking it or not. You can Tell a person when he or she really loves you through his/her action, but its also best when you do it both it just a matter how that person show it to you. ^ ^

Hi vijayanths! I thought you were kidnapped! Welcome back! he he. Well, I dont have to show love. I get all the love. LOL. Right now though my papa is annoyed. His sugar is high. Doctor is asking him to take medicines, and he is not listening. I need a person who will open his jaw and push in his medicine like that fish medicine for asthma. :) Doctor gave up, vandy gives up. :) He is angry as well. Sulking. :(

call me a cynic but i verbal love is nothing. although it is nice to hear someone say they love you, it does not mean anything at all. true love is shown by how a person acts around you. if he truly puts your needs before his, then you know you are loved.

My husband and I tell each other we love each other constantly, everyday. We kiss and hug when he gets home from work and when we go to bed at night. Sometimes we email each other or text each other during the day to say we miss and love each other.

I show my love to my partner by telling him everday that I love him and what he means to me. I show him by holding him and doing little things for him that I know will make him happy.

I think it's all are showoff because if you love some you don't need to do showoff because he or she can understand by your feeling and your caringness that's it.

Hi guy! It's good you are a good communicator. You are aware of people's affection. I think you have a strong common sense. I share my love to my love - ones through gift giving and respect. And understand their feelings all the time. Thank you for reminding me to give gifts to my mother today. Have a nice day!
