Ideas to say I Love You

If A Pet Dies
Those that don’t have pets don’t understand what it’s like to lose this constant companion. If your partner was particularly close to the pet, you want to support them by showing how much you love them in these ways:
  • Let your partner grieve – It sounds simply enough, but letting your partner do whatever they want to do to accept their pet’s death, give them the space to do that. If they want to cry, allow them to cry. If they want to talk about the pet a lot, let them do that.
  • Create a book or video of memories of your pet – If your partner took pictures or videos, use a digital program to create a slideshow or simply craft a photo album that will help them remember their beloved pet.
  • Spend time with your partner – Because this pet was probably a close companion, you will want to spend more time with your partner to help them feel less lonely.
    There are other ways to help show your love for your partner when they’ve lost a pet – perhaps frame a picture and place it where they used to eat or sleep. You might want to have a special place in the yard or at a pet cemetery for your partner to visit.
    Above all, if this pet was not yours or you were not close to it, this is not a good time for you to show any displeasure with their ‘overreaction’ to the death. Everyone grieves in different ways and you might want to show your love by supporting whichever way your partner chooses.

    When There’s Been A Crime
    Hopefully, you won’t have to deal with the fallout of a crime that’s happened to you or to your partner, but if you do, being the loving partner will be the best way to help them heal from the trauma that may have happened.
  • Don’t shy away from helping them out – You want to be there for them no matter how difficult it might be for you to be in a police station or to look at the crime scene.
  • Let them talk about it as much as they want – Your partner will appreciate that you are listening to them.
  • Write them encouraging notes and then have them mailed at different times from different places – For example, you can write something as simple as, “I know this is a hard time for you, so if you need anything, just let me know.” By receiving these unexpected cheer up cards, they will feel your love.
  • Give a lot of hugs – Some of the trauma of crime is not feeling as safe as you did before the crime occurred. By giving a lot of hugs and holding them close, reminding them that you will protect them, you are helping to heal their emotional wounds.

    When You’ve Had A Fight
    You’re going to fight if you’re a couple that’s been together for any period of time – it happens and it’s normal.
    But there are ways to show that you still love your partner, even if you’re in the midst of a bad fight:
  • Always be respectful – By never calling names or making untrue accusations, you will allow the argument to focus on the issue at hand and still show that you respect the other person.
  • Walk away if you are getting too angry – Instead of regretting what you’ve said, walk away from the argument if you feel that you can’t control your emotions. Go into another room for a few minutes until you calm down and then return.
  • If you feel like you have to leave the house, be sure to tell your partner that you’re coming back – When things are fragile and emotional, you don’t want to have any surprises when it comes to the argument. You need to come back eventually to straighten things out.
  • Ask about their opinion – Instead of trying to ‘fix’ what you see as wrong, talk to your partner about ways that you can BOTH fix the issue.
  • Let the other person know that you love them and care about them, even if you’re having troubles.
  • Write them a small note that says, “I hate it when we fight and hope we can make up soon.” Leave it somewhere that they might see it.

    When Your Child’s Having Problems
    If you have children together, you might want to be even more supportive when you’re having troubles that concern your child. Even if they aren’t your child’s fault, being loving parents takes loving each other through this time too.
  • Write out lists of what you love about your child – This helps the both of you to see the different qualities in the child and to learn to appreciate each other’s viewpoints and opinions.
  • Talk about the day that your child was born and what made that day special.
  • Look through old photo albums of your child or create a new one.
  • Try to talk to your child together and separately – Meet up to talk about your child from these different viewpoints too to see what you might have missed on your own.
  • Let each other have reactions to your child’s situations – It’s okay to be made and frustrated at your child, but hiding it from your partner is not.
    When Linda and Marcus’s son Rudy was having troubles at school, they both felt like they were the one that was to blame. Linda felt like she never spent time with him and Marcus felt like he was too controlling. When Linda and Marcus sat down with each other, shared how much they loved each other and how they parented, they were able to see more solutions for the problems that were happening.
    As parents, they became more effective because they knew they both were in it together – and had each other’s support.

    When You Just Aren’t Clicking
    Since everyone has their own way of acting and reacting to things, it’s natural that you might have times when you just don’t feel like you’re ‘clicking’ with your partner.
    To help say, “I love you” during these times, you should consider:
  • Try not to make a big deal out of it – Sometimes things aren’t as bad as you might think they are. By telling your partner that you love them and care about them, you might help this awkward time to pass without any drama.
  • Ask your partner what they might want to do – Have your partner choose and plan the activities that you both do. And then do them without any complaint.
  • Send your partner an email that asks them out on a date – Don’t tell them where you’re going or what you’re doing. Make it like a date that you would have had at the beginning of your relationship.

    Taking On The Blame
    When you’ve had a fight and you just want things to be better again, it’s time to show your partner how much you care about them and their happiness.
  • Leave them love letters that remind them of how much you love them – Place one in a plastic bag on the windshield of their car.
  • Write “I’m sorry” across the bathroom mirror so they see it when they wake up the next morning.
  • Leave them a note with a small tube of super glue – the note can read, “My heart is broken because of our fight. Can you help me glue it back together?”
    When Frederick and Cindy had another large fight, they just didn’t know how to get back to normal. Frederick still felt mad about what happened and Cindy wasn’t sure how to fix things.
    When Frederick left for work, she took out an old video that they’d purchased from a video store and found a “Please be kind and rewind” sticker on it.
    She placed a picture on the box of them together and placed the sticker on the picture.
    She left it for Frederick to find. He thought it was hilarious and sweet, which broke the tension and got their relationship back on track.

    Heading To Another Location
    Instead of staying where you’ve been fighting, try to move your make up time to another place to start over, to start fresh.
  • Take your partner out to the park or a walking trail to talk things over and let them know that you’re committed to working on your relationship. Sometimes just getting someone away from their situation is enough to help make things better.
  • Ask your partner if you can take them out to a working lunch or dinner to work out your problems - The idea of it sort of being a date as well as in a public place can help your partner relax and see that you love them and just want to start over.
  • Spend a night in a hotel and promise not to leave until you work things out – By getting away from the normal distractions of your relationship and your life, you can create a romantic setting that allows you to make things better.
  • Promise your partner that you will take them anywhere that they want to go…once you’ve made up. That calls for a celebration, doesn’t it?

    Promising Your Love
    Here’s a fun way to make up with your partner: When Sam and Emily had a big fight, they’d normally sulk around each other for a while, which didn’t help because it seemed tot both of them that they were not ready to make up, nor did they really care if they did.
    This time, Sam decided that he wanted to do something different to show Emily that he loved her instead of just stomping around until someone apologized.
    He got out a picture of Emily when she was smiling and happy, pasted it on a piece of paper and wrote:
    “Dear Emily, This is the smile that I fell in love with. It lights up the room, it lights up my life, and I can not imagine a day without it. When we fight, it becomes dark and I can’t think straight until we figure things out. I don’t want to miss your smile for one more minute.
    I promise that I never mean to hurt you when I’m angry and I promise that I will always love you.
    I’m sorry and I love you. Sam.”
    Emily couldn’t help but smile when she read this and they made a list together of promises for each other. Signing it, they hung it on the wall to remind each other.

    Compromise Is Good
    For some couples, they simply want to say “I love you” and think that that’s enough to maintain a relationship. But when you’re in a fight, you need to solve the problem in order to be able to move past it.
    This is where this compromise technique can work:
    Each partner can write down the things that they want from the relationship or the fight. Then they will each read their ideas aloud. This list can be anything from silly requests to those that are more serious.
    When you have these lists, trade them with each other to see what the other wants. You can then choose two things from their list that they will have to do, while they will do the same.
    Other ways to show love in a situation of compromise:
  • Both partners need to give something in the situation.
  • Give your partner something that’s very valuable to you and ask them not to give it back until they know that you’ve shown your love to them.
  • Offer to be the first one to make a change.

    Picnic It Out
    When you change the situation, you can change your feelings about it.
    Couples have troubles, but it’s how you deal with the troubles that will ensure that you both know how much you love each other.
    For a fun way to work things out, have your partner meet you at a local park or at a local outdoor table. But don’t tell them what you are doing.
    By taking the first step towards making things better, you can help make things much more easy to talk about.
    Pack a lunch of all of your favorite foods and even some wine, if you like.
    Set out a table that’s beautiful, maybe some flowers and other fun things like:
  • Real wine glasses
  • Napkins
  • Nice plates
    The point is to make a pretty setting that will allow your partner to be caught off guard. You want to surprise them and make them realize that you just want to go back to the way things were before this tough time.
    Feed them their food, if you like. Serve them their wine and other foods – and see if they’re still mad after that first class treatment.
