Love is Love, no matter which way you say it💚

How we recognize love influences our relationships. There’s five different love languages, and each one is ok. The common denominator is that they all say the same: I love you in ways other than using those words.

Taken from Thought Catalog, here are fifty alternatives for I love you. May these help you recognize love in all it’s forms.

1. “Do you want to wear my coat?”

2. “How was your exam?”

3. Checking in when they have the flu.

6. Surprising them with their favorite candy.

7. “Don’t forget to bring your umbrella—it’s supposed to rain.”

10. Reminding them that their hard work doesn’t go unnoticed.

11. Sharing your favorite food.

12. Letting them have the front seat.

13. Putting two sugars in their coffee even when they say they want one because you know they like it better that way.

16. Sending a funny picture you saw online.

17. Washing their dishes even when they don’t ask you

18. “How is your family?”

19. Having Gatorade ready the morning after a rough night out.

20. “There’s traffic on the highway; take the back road.”

26. Helping them study for a test.

27. Going to their big game.

28. Bringing an extra water bottle when you know they’ll be in the sun.

      • I’m not going to bore you with the life of John (that’s me 😋) but I face numerous issues.. I have the best woman I could ever have. She has weight issues, stays tired all the time, deals with a lot of nonsense from her job and we have issues with our son. So she’s got a lot on her plate and I try to be understanding. But there’s times we need to recognize each other!

        • I’m rarely bored by lives of individuals; but if so, I’ll be sure to tell you. Haha my boyfriend said that to me yesterday, “Gee, tell me how you really feel”😂 no, I’m half kidding.

        • Since coffee makes up for blood in my body, I never experience that. I get jittery for about 30 minutes and get sluggish and sleepy again…

        • “seeing sounds and hearing colors”
          I said that to someone last week and they kind of looked around like I was crazy…
