  • If you need me, just ask. I’m here for you.

Things You Can Actually Do

creative ways to say i love you

As the above suggests, there are things you can do, whether rub someone’s feet, or pick up the laundry for them on a busy week (or just because you care). Below are some other things you can actually do and remember – it can be really small things, like having their favorite cup of tea ready for them after a long day. Fancy dates may sound great, but a romantic walk on the beach, or a candlelit dinner at home can be just as appreciated and finding a little note in your pocket saying ‘I love you’ is just as romantic as a diamond necklace.

  • Bring them their favorite dessert.
  • Leave them little notes hidden in their bag/pocket/anywhere you know they would find it, be it cute, or sexy notes, or a bit of both!
  • Lit candles all over the house to surprise them with some romance.
  • Cook dinner, or prepare breakfast for them.
  • Buy them a tiny gift ever so often.
  • Take them on “secret” dates (i.e. you don’t tell them beforehand) doing something you know they’d love, be it flying a hot air balloon, or going to a fancy restaurant.
  • Look after them when they have a cold.
  • Do something around the house/apartment for them.
  • Really listen to them when they talk about a long day and then give them a big hug, showing you’re there for them as a support and have faith that they will handle whatever comes their way.
  • Set time aside to really be together – not watching movies, or sitting next to each other doing different things, but truly doing things together, talking and sharing moments.
  • Touch them – physical touch is important for most people, like holding hands, hugging, etc.


    • Since you are interested in sharing your feelings with this person, then you will likely find great benefit in directly informing them about your thoughts.
