How to Use Body Language to Express Love

If you really just can't muster up the nerve to text any of these words to your loved one, let alone actually say any of these words to their face, you still have options: using actions to express your love has always worked. If you're a doer instead of a talker, find other physical ways to express yourself: pull your partner closer, perform an elaborate gesture, or just smile that special smile reserved only for him/her.

How to Say "I Love You" Without Saying a Thing

If you want to show how serious you really feel, look your loved one straight in the eyes for at least ten seconds. Try for longer, if you can, since studies have shown that when you look deeply into someone's eyes, the body produces a chemical called phenylethylamine that stimulates deep feelings of love. Studies have shown that two minutes of deep gazing was, in some cases, enough to kindle feelings of love. Studies have also shown that the more deeply a couple loves each other, the longer they hold eye contact with one another.

Is it easy for you to say words of love to other people?
