17 Ways Your SO Loves You Without Saying It

Posted -

Ah, love—what a delightful, difficult thing you are. You pick us up when we’re down, wrap your arms around us when we need it most and know exactly how to make us feel cared for and beyond beautiful. Unfortunately, though, talking about you can be as tricky as trying to discuss trigonometry when we haven’t touched a math textbook since high school. 

Lucky for us, many gestures embody the passion that’s not always expressed easily through words. Even if your SO has yet to break conversational ground with the first “I love you,” it’s a safe bet to believe that this intention exists if he or she…

1. Surprises you with meaningful gifts

2. Gazes into your eyes

3. Pulls you in for intense make out sessions

4. …and ends each of them with a smile

5. Holds your hand in public

6. Supports you through sad situations

7. Wants your opinions

8. Listens to—and remembers—what you say

9. Calls or texts to say “good morning” and “good night” 

10. Always asks about your day

11. Makes an effort to befriend your family

12. Knows how you take your coffee...

13. …and brews it for you

14. Steps in when you need a massage

15. Starts doing things you like to do

16. Wants to cook with you

17. Talks about a future that includes you

Start keeping an eye out! Sometimes, love shows itself in more situations than we think.
