1001 ways to say “I love you”
On this special day of love, both for sweethearts and for friends and family, saying “I love you” is a must. Repeating those same three little words on a daily basis can make them lose their shine, so it’s up to us to restore the lustre they deserve. Fortunately, love can be expressed in many different ways.
What could be better for expressing our feelings than to put them down on paper, such as by writing a poem, for example? Now that’s a demonstration of love that is bound to touch your loved one. If writing isn’t one of your strengths, think about a gift instead. It doesn’t have to cost a fortune; just choose it with loving care. Why not offer a bouquet of favourite flowers, a box of luxurious chocolates, or anything else that will make your loved one say “You shouldn’t have — but I love it!”
Another way of expressing your feelings is to spend some quality time with your loved one. A few suggestions: sharing a romantic dinner for two at your favourite restaurant; concocting a meal together, accompanied by some gentle much-loved music; sharing the pleasure of a massage together; stretching out side-by-side in a whirlpool bath; going to the movies or cuddling up on the couch while watching one at home; going away for a lovers’ weekend; or flying to a romantic destination.
Say it in a different language!
Impress your soul mate by whispering words of love in a different language. Here are a few ways to say “I love you” other than in English: Je t’aime (French); Ich liebe dich (German); Te quiero (Spanish); Ti amo (Italian); Ik hou van jou (Dutch); Minä rakastan sinua (Finnish); Jag älskar dig (Swedish).
Have a happy Valentine’s Day!
