I just want to see some of the ideas you ladies use to tell or show your husband that he means the world to you. I, myself, just flat out tell him! I gave him a card on our one month of marriage the other day! The little things matter!

lol Seeing this posted in Intimacy made me think it was going to be something much more scandalous than a card! 😉
ETA: Never mind. Either I’m seeing things or it got straightened out. lol
I usually just tell him. I should do more little physical things like cards though. He would probably appreciate that.

Sometimes I’ll help clean his place (we’re not living together yet) and when I make his bed, I’ll leave a post it note on his pillow saying “goodnight, sweetheart.”
Have you ever heard of the book “The five love languages?” It just talks about how to figure out how your partner likes to be loved the most. Like, some guys will value a kiss from you a lot more than a gift. You can take quizzes online that’ll help you figure out which “language” you and/or your partner is your primary one. The five languages are physical touch, giving gifts, acts of service, words of affirmation, and spending quality time together. It can really help you get to know your SO and how he processes love the most. My FI’s primary love language was acts of service, and I was totally surprised!

I buy cards and hide them in his stuff. It’s a game, trying to sneak them in when he’s not looking.
they’re usually really cheesy, like a blank card with a sushi roll on the front and then inside I write something like “You’re the wasabi to my sushi – you make life delicious!” or something equally dorky, haha. We’re big dorks though 🙂

TheFutureMrsK I have never heard of the book or the website. Would you mind sharing the link?
caitlanc I didn’t even realize it had been moved into another catagory! Btw–I couldn’t help notice your location. I love WY (been there once in my life) and I used to live in CO! Loved it there too!

I often pack Fi’s lunches and almost always leave a little love note. He got called into work 2 states away for the last week. While I helped him pack his suitcase I snuck him a note for every day, each in it’s own envelope to put in his lunches since I wouldn’t be there. Silly I know but I don’t know just the way to say/show someone -they are everything you’ve ever dreamed of and that every day you spend with them is a blessing in itself. Yeah… not sure how to quite show that.

I do things so that he knows. I give him a back massage every night and listen to his CONSTANT talking about racing, race cars … He knows. I know he knows.
Wish he would SHOW me a little l.o.v.e. But.. somehow, I know he loves me.

@TheFutureMrsK:That sounds like such a genuinely valuable and worthwhile book! I am putting that on my to-do list for sure! Thank you for sharing that!
I try to show him through affection! i snuggle up with him and kiss him, and there are times I just look him in the eyes. He means so much to me that I think its visible. I also tell him how much I appreciate the things he does for me, because I really really do. I feel so lucky! He is more than I ever hoped to find! I laugh at his sense of humor, and listen when he needs an ear, and he does the same for me.
Sorry, I am rambling. I guess to sum it up, I try to show him everytime I am with him by paying closest attention to him, not because I feel like I have to, but because I love to!
