Saying “I love you” requires a little bit of effort. Perhaps it’s because of the way we were brought up where it’s not that common to express our affection through words daily. Or it could be something else. Either way, here’s the good news: action speaks louder than words! If you’re looking for a way you can say “I love you” without actually saying it, here are 11 ideas:
