Show you care without scaring them by surprising them with thoughtful gestures, like a clean kitchen after a tiring week or bringing their favorite meal, reminding them that they are cared for even when apart, and that you cherish their presence in your life.
What truly makes someone feel loved is spending time with them, engaging in shared hobbies or creative projects, and providing a non-judgmental and attentive listening space where they can be themselves and feel valued.
Demonstrate attentive listening by remembering little details and reading between the lines, creatively surprising them with thoughtful gestures that show you care and are willing to go the extra mile in the relationship.
To truly love someone, it's essential to have self-worth, be patient, and commit to someone who appreciates and embraces both your strengths and flaws, supporting your authentic growth and trusting in your journey.
Before investing deeply in someone, ask yourself if they reciprocate your love and trust, and cherish those who show trust by being vulnerable, sharing life, and taking emotional risks for a closer connection.
Believe in their growth, show pride in their achievements, maintain a balance in the relationship through personal development, and grow together to foster a positive and confident love shared on the same level of maturity.
Proving consistent love requires taking care of oneself to avoid pouring from an empty cup, as inconsistent and wishy-washy behavior can lead to unhealthy mindreading and instability in relationships.
Integrate it with other ways of loving someone by supporting their new endeavors, keeping negativity to yourself, and defending them when they're spoken ill of behind their back, showing unwavering love and loyalty.
