Guide to Tell Someone You Love Them

The words “I love you” can mean a commitment but sometimes people aren’t able or they don’t feel able to say these words to someone. If this is you, there are ways that you can show love to others without having to say it. The non-verbal proof of love is one way that you can declare your love without ever having to even speak about it.

A person that you love will know that you love them based on the actions that you show them, but here are some of the best ways to show your love without having to say anything:

Be Helpful

Loving someone means that you are willing to help them. Some people will never accept the help that you offer them but if you ask to help them and to make their life easier, they will know that you love and care about them.


Touching doesn’t have to be something that is sexual or romantic. Touching is just a gift of showing love. The times that you use physical contact to a person shows the love that you have for them. This can even be friendship love.

Touch someone on their arm, pat their shoulder or hug them. Doing these things can show someone that you love them. If you are with someone, you can kiss them or hold their hands, and this will show them that you love them. If you aren’t sure where you or your partner stand though, be careful how you touch them until you know.

Listening and Hearing

Listening is more than just keeping your ears open and when you love someone, you actually hear them. When someone is talking to you, give them your attention and they will realize that you care about what they have to say and that you are listening to what is important to them.


Giving someone a special gift can make them feel loved. You don’t have to purchase something that costs a lot of money and you can even give them something that you made on your own. Just by showing that you care enough to give someone something will show the love that you have for them.

Asking “How Are You?”

One of the best ways that you can show someone that you care is by asking them how they are. You can ask them how their day is going, or you can ask them if they are feeling okay. If they leave you to go somewhere, you can ask them if they made it home safely. Doing this can make them feel loved and cared about.

Give Them Time

Giving people time doesn’t compare to giving gifts. When you give the gift of time to someone then it means that you are spending quality time together with someone that you care for and appreciate. This means that you are able to talk to them and to be open to them and to have fun just being together.

Be Appreciative

It is important to show appreciation to someone that you love. When someone does something nice for you, even if it is small, show them that you appreciate it. When someone does something for you such as cooking for you, going places with you or even just saying something nice, show them that you care about what they did and said.

Remember, everyone has their own love language, and this means that they will show their love to you in the way that feels right for them.

Talking Online

When you talk to this person online, make sure that you are using emoji’s that show love. Add hearts and say nice things.

Remember Details

Remember the persons birthday or something that is special to them. Know their favorite color and about what they find important. This is one way that you can express your love because you cared enough to know what they enjoyed and liked.

Be There

Love is about being there for someone. Even when you are busy or when things are hard, by showing that you can be there for someone shows them that you love them. Go the extra mile to make sure that they know that you are there for them no matter what.


Send out a text message just for no reason. Ask them how their day is. Say hi or start a conversation. This can show you are interested in talking. If you are talking to someone romantically, tell them the different ways that you love them.

Lift Them Up

Build this person up. Lift up their confidence and make them know that you think they are special. This can make their mood better. This can also show them how much you appreciate them and think of them.

Love Language

You can find out the love language of someone and this is how they express themselves and their thoughts. If you care about them enough then you will show them how special and how cared for they are.

Tell Secrets

Tell the person things about you that you don’t tell anyone else. Keep them close to you and show them that you trust them enough to share things with them.

Say Sorry

When you are wrong, say you are sorry. Loving someone unconditionally means that you care about them and that you are there for them no matter what. Always apologize when you are wrong and sometimes even when you don’t think you are. This can go a long way with someone.

Love Songs

You can create a list of love songs for someone that they can play in their car or on their radio at home. You can use different online apps to create playlists. Add songs that let them know that you are thinking about them.

Be Intimate

You need to be intimate with your partner if you are in a relationship with them. Always consider the needs that they have and make sure that you are giving them what they want and what they need.

Post on social media

Post the things on social media that show how close you are to this person. Put pictures and say nice things about them. There is no reason to hide someone you care about.

Fix Problems

All relationships require a lot of work and if you are with someone and there are problems, fix them. If you love the person, you are with, you will work to fix things so that you can save the relationship and make it stronger.

Make Plans

Making plans with someone in the future shows that you care about spending time together. Go on vacations together and do things that are fun. Go out and see what kind of stuff you can get into with the person you care about.

Look in Their Eyes

When you talk to someone that you care about, look them in the eyes. Look at them and let your eyes and your soul tell them how much you love them.

Use Words

Even though we said that you don’t have to say “I love you” to show it, sometimes this is what is needed to seal the deal. When you are with someone that you love, saying the words can make a big difference.

The relationships that you are in, even a family or a friendship relationship still has a lot of love. You can tell people that you love them and it doesn’t have to be weird or cheesy.

Final Thoughts

There are so many ways that you can show someone that you love them without ever having to even say anything. Take time to show people that you care by finding out their love language and by using your own to express what you are feeling.

You will see that sometimes saying “I love you” is hard but you don’t even have to say it to show it. Showing a person that you love them and how you feel about them can make your relationship even stronger.
