How To Say “I Love You” Without Saying “I Love You”?

How To Say I Love You Without Saying I Love You

How to express your love without saying I Love You? 

I Love You” is the word phrase that you say to someone mainly while expressing your feelings.

Some of you might say “I love you” to your partner every day.

Likewise, some of you might be waiting for the right time or right moment to express your feelings to the one you love.

It’s a fantastic feeling to be in love, isn’t it?

But it is also equally challenging to express it.

Expressing your love isn’t that easy.

Undoubtedly, it’s hard.

You have to think about a lot of things before approaching the proposal phase.

What if they don’t like you and reject your proposal? Would you be able to handle the rejection?

What if they couldn’t accept your proposal because they are going through a hard time?

Propose not only when you are ready, but also when she is ready

Keep this in mind. You shouldn’t propose when you are ready. It would be best if you proposed when they are ready too.

Now, how will you know if they are ready?

Well, if you genuinely love them and, if they feel the same about you, you will know.

They will be leaving hints here and there for you.

You can also read here to know if a guy loves you or not. 

But if they don’t feel the same about you, I’m afraid; your proposal might get rejected.

Today, in this article, we are not going to talk about rejection. We will be talking about acceptance and how to work through it.

Saying “I Love You” is actually stating that you care about them and feel for them.

You shouldn’t be afraid to say something if it’s true.

Well, it’s not necessary to use “those exact words” to express your love and affection.

In this article, I will walk you through some of the alternative words or word phrases of “I Love You.”

This article is from a male’s point of view, but if you are a girl, you can pick up the ideas from it too.

Here are 31 best ways to express your love and say I love you without saying I love you.

You complete me

You Complete Me
I was alone before you came into my life. You made my life whole.

“Before you came to my life, I was an aimless fellow. I wasn’t sure about what do I want to be in the future. I didn’t have a defined path. It felt like I was just surviving and wasn’t living my life to the fullest”.

“But when you entered my life, my life changed. You gave me a direction. You helped me pursue my future. I am who I am today only because of you. I was incomplete without you, and your presence in my life completes me. Thank you”.

When you tell her she completes you, you are giving her credit for your success. Appreciate what she has done for you and thank her for that.

She deserves appreciation, and when she gets it, her feeling towards you grows.

Good times or bad times, you can always count on me

I Will Be Always There For You
When you need me, I will be there for you.

“I don’t only want to stay with you when you are doing good. I want to be with you through your hard times too”.

“If I am not there for you during your failure, then I don’t have any right to come back to you at your success. I selflessly care about you, and I will always do. No matter what, you can always count on me”.

Everyone goes through bad times. It’s a natural thing.

When you tell her that you will always be there for her, it gives her a feeling that she isn’t alone. This helps to build up the level of trust further.

I care about you

I Care About You So Much
Caring is love. Sharing is love.

“This has never happened to me before, but I have never cared about anyone this much in my entire life.”

“When you got ill last weekend, I was kind of angry with you because you were careless with your health. If I were there with you, I wouldn’t have let you get ill. I care about you more than you know”.

When you care about someone, you wouldn’t want to see them get sick or go through hard times.

If you care about her and she knows it, she wouldn’t let anyone else come between you two.

I trust you with every tiny secret of mine

I Trust You With My Life
Trust is the key to a happy relationship.

“It never occurred to me that I shouldn’t trust you. I have faith in you, and I know I can share every secret of mine with you, no matter how dark it is”.

“When you have asked something to me, I have always told you the truth, without having any second thoughts. Have you ever realized why I do that? That’s because I trust you with every little secret of mine.”

Tell her you trust her and share your life experiences with her. When you share your stories with her, she will share hers with you. This helps you to know each other better.

I am proud of you

I Am Proud Of You
Praise her good deeds.

“Yesterday, when you told me that you donated some clothes and food to the orphanage, it made me so proud of yourself. I am proud to know such a helpful, kind, and humble person like you”.

Praise her good deeds. Tell her what she did was amazing, and it made you proud of her. This will make her realize that you care about her, and she will be happy to share things with you.

How is everyone at home?

How Is Everyone At Home
How is Dad? Is Mom ok?

“I saw mom and dad yesterday in the grocery shop. They were buying some vegetables. Mom looked a little bit unwell. How is she now? How is dad?”

Dear reader, I want you to reread the above paragraph and come back to continue.

I said, “I saw mom and dad,” not your mom and dad. Mom looked unwell, not your mom.

How is dad? Not your dad.

Are you getting my point?

If you really love her, you will treat her parents as your parents too.

Don’t use words like “Uncle” and “Aunt” to address them. Try to stick with “Mom” and “Dad” to call their names.

When she realizes that you are trying to connect with her family members, she senses a feeling of togetherness. Asking about how her family members are doing shows how much you care for her.

I saw you in my dream yesterday

I Saw You In My Dream Yesterday
Best dream I have ever had.

“Do you remember the park we met for the very first time? We were in that park in my dream yesterday. We were together and having a lot of fun”.

“I bought you a cone of your favorite Vanilla Ice cream. You got so happy that you hugged me right away. I was glad that I got a hug from you”.

“After a while, I woke up and alas! It was just a dream”.

The moment you tell her she was in your dream, a smile will come to her face. Do you know what she will think?

“This guy saw me in his dream. He remembered that I liked Vanilla Ice cream, and he even bought it for me. He is such a nice guy”.

Buddy, at this moment, if you would dare enough to ask, that park could be your next date destination.

Just don’t forget to buy her her favorite Vanilla Ice Cream. Ha Ha.

Happy Birthday (Sharp 12:00 on her birthday)

Happy Birthday
Happy birthday to the most amazing girl I have ever known

“Many Many Happy Returns Of The Day, Dear.”

“You are amazing and so gorgeous that I would never get bored of listening to you. May all of your dreams come true. I am so lucky to have you in my life. Always stay the way you are. Have a wonderful birthday”.

A birthday is a very special day for everyone. Wishing her birthday isn’t something you get to do daily, like wishing good morning or goodnight.

Birthday comes once a year. Make sure you make it worthwhile for her. Here are some tips for you. Use these simple tips, and trust me, the birthday wishes impact will stay for a whole year.

  • Be her first wisher. She would want it from you.
  • Call her rather than texting.
  • Don’t just say “Happy Birthday” and cut the phone. Talk to her for a while.
  • Never use cheesy words while wishing. Make it plain and simple.
  • Buy a gift and give it to her the next moment you meet her.

Here I have explained these steps in detail.
Check out the best ways to wish your girlfriend on her birthday.

Please call me after you reach home

Please Call Me When You Reach Home
I will be waiting for your call.

“When you didn’t call me yesterday after you reached home, I got a little bit worried. Please don’t do that. Please call me after you reach home”.

If you genuinely love her, then you will genuinely care about her. It’s ok to be a little bit insecure sometimes.

When you say her to call you after she reached home from study or work, she will take it as a kind gesture and understand you care about her.

Your smile makes my day

It might be difficult for you to believe, but in my opinion, you have the prettiest smile I have ever seen. This might sound a bit creepy, but I look at your pictures every day when I wake up and do the same before going to sleep. Your smile helps me win through a hard day. Your smile inspires me. Your smile motivates me. 

Compliment her. Let her know that you genuinely love her.

She loves compliments. And when they come from the person she likes, those compliments bring so much value to the relationship.

Thank you

Thank You For Everything
Thanks for being there with me all the time

“Hey, thank you for helping me prepare for the Powerpoint presentation. It meant a lot to me. My boss liked it so much that he has told me to lead the campaign”.

“Hi, dear! Thank you for helping my sister study for her exams. She will definitely score higher this time with your support”.

“I wanted to thank you for picking my grandmother from the airport. I got trapped in the busy work schedule that I couldn’t leave the office. Thank you. I really appreciate it”.

Thanking her for what she did is very important for the sustainable growth of a relationship.

She might say no need to say thank you, but you know what? She deserves a “thank you,” and you should appreciate what she did.
