Husbands are notorious for their poor ability to express themselves, especially when it comes to these two words: “I love you.” Eight Ways Your Husband Silently Screams “I Love You!”
Husbands are notorious for their poor ability to express themselves, especially when it comes to these two words: “I love you.” Your husband may tell you that she loves you while she is out at work, or before bed, but a moment of spontaneous expression, a product of her deepest romantic feelings, is not something a man shares often. Believe it or not, sharing feelings is not a characteristic of common men.
Woman, don’t let your husband’s lack of expression discourage you. Although words are very important, expressions of love are not always said out loud. When your husband’s lips are closed, he screams “I love you” with the things he does for you. It is easy that we do not give too much importance to some of these acts because they are simple and straightforward, but when you look at them in perspective you will see the sacrifice that he is actually making.
Here are eight ways your husband is yelling at you that he loves you, and that you may be missing them:
1. Allows you to choose
If you go to the movies and your husband lets you choose the movie, he is indicating that what you want is important to him. Similarly, if he lets you choose dinner, the color of the next car, the destination of the next vacation … He is telling you, very loudly, that he loves you and that he cares about you.
2. Helps you at home
When my husband comes in after a long day and comes over to help me finish making dinner and doing the dishes, I know he’s saying “I love you.” I’ve seen him mop the floors, scrub the bathroom, organize the pantry, fold my personal clean clothes, and a long to-do list, all in the name of love. If your husband helps at home, he does not do it because it suits him, or to look good with his friends, he does it because that way he reduces your work.
3. He asks you for advice
When your spouse asks you for advice, they are not only saying that they love you, but that they trust you to guide them. It is difficult for men to open up and ask others for help, so if your husband seeks your advice, you can also feel honored to know that she trusts you and loves you very much. She has placed you in a small circle of people with whom she can open up. In essence, she is expressing to you “I love you, and I know I can open up to you without fear of judgment.”
4. Take your hand
Whether he does it in public or alone at home, when your man holds your hand he is indicating that he loves you. Holding hands is a simple and genuine expression of love. It is a physical approach without sexual intent. It is love in its simplest form. It is the fastest and easiest action that your husband can take to express the feelings that she holds in her heart.
5. Helps you with shopping
Whether he comes with you or buys something on the way home, if your husband is willing to shop until he drops, he’s saying he loves you. I used to ask my husband to stop by the store on the way home because he was always willing to, but I never considered the sacrifice he made. I only recently found out that my husband doesn’t like to do it, that he only goes because he loves me and he knows I don’t like to buy groceries either. If your husband is willing to help you do things you don’t like to do (especially when he doesn’t like doing those things himself), he is almost screaming your love.
6. Listen to your frustrations
I’ll put it simply: Most women have a lot to complain about (myself included). If your husband is willing to listen to your frustrations and support you, he is actually saying “I love you.” A man who is able to sit back and listen to you, especially when he has heard the same complaint over and over again, should really be recognized.
7. smiles at you
A smile, like shaking your hand, is a simple gesture, but it speaks volumes. A simple and sincere smile has the power to take a woman’s breath away. Remember the first time you saw your husband, and how her smile affected you. Keep the memory alive because every time your husband smiles at you, he reaffirms every word of love he has said to you. That sincere smile doesn’t just say “I love you,” it also says “You make me happy.”
8. He gives you something of himself
Whether it’s a compliment, a gift he bought, or a loving look, when your husband takes the time to give you something that comes directly from him, he is saying “I love you.” Even if it is an unnecessary gift, the act of offering it shows that you are on their mind.
Words are not always said, but if you hear them through your eyes, you will find that your husband yells “I love you.”
