Love is largely communicated via action, and while it’s incredibly nice to hear and express those words regularly, it’s also important to say “i love you” without any words at all. In a relationship, it’s still significant to perform small acts of daily kindness that send the message verbally.
Here are a few ideas to silently say “I love you,” whether you have actually said it already or not.
- 1. Leave a note.
Before you dash off into your day, scrawl a quick “Sleep well” and slip it on your partner’s pillow. When they find it, they will know you were thinking of them in the morning. It’s an easy way to let your partner know you are thinking of them because it requires an extra effort.
- 2. Ask about something they are worried about and take the time to really listen.
We all have anxieties, and sometimes it’s too hard to bring them up ourselves. If you know your partner is worried about a promotion at work, or a family member, or a school project, now is the time to ask how they are feeling about it. Just listen- don’t offer advice, unless they ask for it. An open ear is enough.
- 3. Run them a bath if they are tired, or just let them fall asleep.
Maybe you’ve been looking forward to spending time with your partner all day, only to get to their house and discover they are exhausted. It’s ok to get in bed, watch a movie and fall asleep early, or run a bath for them, or give them a foot rub.
Don’t put pressure on them to stay awake and entertain you.

- 4. Watch out for their best interest.
In the same vain as the last idea, don’t be selfish. If you partner really want to see a movie that you are not keen on, see it. If they want to go out and you want to stay in, go out. Put yourself aside and do what they want to do. It means a lot when someone pays attention to what you want, and you will end up having fun.
- 5. Hang with their friends.
Maybe you don’t like them. Put your judgments on hold and hang out with your partner’s crew. Get to know them. It might turn out that you really like them. If you don’t, don’t show it. There is nothing worse than a hypercritical person who is super picky about who they like and don’t like.
- 6. Make them a cup of tea.
Wake up, turn on the kettle and brew a cup of tea. Bring it to bed, serve it. That’s love.
