I do tell him daily I love and appreciate him, I think he needs to hear it more than me sometimes. He shows me in the “little things” he does and often tells me (weekly) that this is his way of showing/telling me he loves me. It fits us well 🙂

I am a very emotional person and I love writing out how i’m feeling at that moment, so I probably annoy my SO multiple times a day. 😛 

I know I prefer words of love and meaning rather than being ‘spoilt’ with items so we are always sharing positive affirmations to one another. I also make sure to have positive affirmations for myself. A favourite…

“I am complete, whole, and filled with love. I have everything I need. If I ask of look for more, I’m ignoring the love and gifts that are already in my life. Instead, i’ll be grateful and acknowlege that anything else would be extra icing on lifes cake.”

I do it all the time!  I learned early on that he responds to this. I love making him feel good.  I tell him how handsome he is, how much I love him and how much I appreciate when he does xyz things for me.

PrincessPeach13 :  We’ve been together just over 4 years married for one and we still text each other a loving message every day. If I leave to work first and know he’s still sleeping I’ll send him one and vice versa. We also leave messages to each other on a magnetic white board on our fridge. It never gets old to us and we both enjoy each other as if we’re still in a “honeymoon” stage.

eeniebeans :  lmao! Words of affirmation is my main love language but I also need him to “just pick up the dog shit!” And he is well aware it helps my mental chi. 😂

I am a sentimental freak! Luckily for me, so is my husband. We both love it all! We tell each other every day, multiple times how much we love each other & beyond that is probably every other. We are one of those couples that will absolutely make you sick we are so sweet. Lol

Been friends for 28 years. Dated 6 months, 27 years ago & the last 4 years, married 2 weeks & 3 days.

A couple of times a week. We did the Love Languages quiz and it’s important to him, so I’m going to try do it more often xo

Every. Single. Day

nothing to do with our love languages, just recognising the importance of telling someone how important they are to you!)

We say I love you all day everyday multiple times a day. We don’t get super gushy or go deeper than that too often. I always thank him and show gratitude for the nice things he doing daily and vice versa. We are not married yet..will be in about 30 days

We are definitely not the lovely dovey gushy romantic type of couple. We are both very appreciative of things the other person does on a daily basis; I think we’re both more of the “acts of service” type of love language.

We do thank each other quite frequently even for seemingly menial tasks. But hey, I really do appreciate that he finished off cleaning the dishes or took the garbage out. You can say I love you 100 times a day but actions speak louder than words to me.

I’ve been with my SO for two years and we give each other words of affirmation every day (I love you, I’m lucky to have you, thank you for being a great partner, etc.). Neither of us really had that in our previous marriages so it’s important to us that we don’t lose the habit of letting the other person know how much they are loved and appreciated.
