15 ways your partner says 'I love you' without saying the words
People are different and express things in multiple different ways. These are some signs and gestures to show you that your partner loves you but does not have to spell it out
Not everyone can express themselves the same and some of us have a hard time finding the words to say that I love you. It does not mean that your partner does not love you but they will have their own ways of showing how they care. People are all different and unique and will have their own way of doing things. These are some points on how your partner is saying they love you without really spelling it out:
15) They give you passionate, long-lasting kisses
A long and beautiful kiss only speaks for itself. If your partner is the one who is always initiating these and all their love and passion comes across, you know the connection is real and speaks for itself. It is very obvious that your partner gets excited about you and though they may not have the words to express it, they choose to show it in different ways!
14) You're friends with all your partner's friends
It is always a positive sign if your partner's friends like you. If your partner's friends start to warm up to you and try to make you feel comfortable and one of them, it means that you are definitely making their friend happy and feel loved. The friends will also start seeing you as the amazing person that you are and find you as amazing as he does!
13) They get intimate with you
Observe how your partner tends to move in close to you and get intimate much faster than you. Obviously, this means that they love you to no end and every time they come closer you get butterflies in your stomach. It is a great feeling when someone you love shows you that they love you back.
12) They smile after kissing you
Notice how your partner always smiles after kissing you. When you love someone, you won't be able to hold back those smiles and rush of joy. Your partner certainly loves you very much if they display cute gestures like beaming right after they kiss you. They definitely enjoy your company and you make them very happy.
11) When you talk, they listen and engage
Someone who cares about your values and opinions will always find the time and space to listen to what you have to say. The fact that they listen to you intently and engage with whatever you are saying means that your partner values your opinions and is keen to know what you have to say.
10) They sit upright when they see you
When you walk in, your partner gets all upright and straightens up. Most people tend to stoop and slouch when they sit or stand but when you are trying to impress a person you care for you stand upright and correct your posture if you want them to notice you. You will see how your partner straightens up and looks proud that you are theirs.
9) They squeeze your hand
If your partner tends to gently hold your hand and squeeze it, they are probably trying to tell you that they love you but in a quiet and simple way. Some people are unable to openly express themselves in the usual ways and so these small gestures and signs are sure to let you know that your partner truly loves you.
8) They call or text you for no significant reason
This is not a very common sign so if your partner does not do this, don't panic. Sometimes, your partner may feel so comfortable with you even in non-romantic situations that they would just like to let you know that they are thinking of you through the day. They probably don't have the words to tell you so they resort to random reasons to talk to you.
7) They are always around
They don't mind hanging out all the time and would love to do things together versus doing things on their own. If the two of you had an invitation to go somewhere, your partner would love to spend some quality time with you before and after. They would even help you iron your clothes and get ready. These small signs show that your partner is here to stay.
6) They maintain eye contact
You will know just how real and strong the connection is when your partner looks you straight in the eye and maintains that contact. Your partner is not going to just glance at you as come across the room but he will not break that eye contact. Even in situations where the two of you are doing separate things, your partner's eyes will always find yours.
5) They get fidgety
When most people get nervous, they tend to play with their hair or twirl their hands or fidget more than normal. If you find your partner doing this when the two of you are alone and it is a romantic moment, it probably means that they want to say something intimate and passionate but just cannot express themselves.
4) They reflect your behavior
If your partner tends to mirror and reflect your behavior he could be displaying a condition known as isopraxism. This is what tends to happen to couples who start becoming closer to each other. Notice how both of you tend to finish each other's sentences or tend to take a bite at the same time.
3) They give you meaningful presents
Meaningful presents do not equate to expensive or complicated but what it does mean is the fact that your partner put a lot of thought and effort into trying to get you something that really fits your personality. A meaningful and well-thought-out present means that your partner knows you well enough and knows how to make you happy.
2) You make your partner laugh a lot
Does your partner find you hilarious and can't help but laugh out loud when you do something exceptionally silly? The more they laugh and find you hilarious, the more serious they are getting. This only shows that they find you interesting and are excited and delighted by your presence.
1) They touch you continuously
When you and your partner are out in a public place, they will instinctively put their arm around you or do something to keep you close to them. These random signs of closeness and intimacy show that your partner loves you and want to maintain some amount of physical contact.
