Can you say "I love you" too many times? Well, if you don't really mean it of course you can. Or maybe it's the unimaginative ways we express it that compel us to stop using the words "I love you" altogether.
Love is not just an emotion or feeling.
Love is something we must see with our eyes, not just feel with our heart. In order to keep the word love from being common place we must keep it alive with the things we do for that special person in our life. Be it a soft burning, sweet smelling candle lighting a dark room with a delicious dinner for two on the table, and the soothing sound of music in the background; surprising your sweetheart with something romantic is a great way of showing them how much you love and care for them.
Too many times we think it is enough just to say "I love you" to our sweetheart. We are then off the hook to really work at keeping the relationship fresh and exciting. If you are clueless as what would put the "sparkle" back in your relationship, try a few if these simple things:
Give your sweetheart a wonderful back rub, gently telling them to relax and unwind from their day at work or with the kids, etc. While you are both relaxed, this is a good time to tell them you love them and that they mean the world to you. When you take the time to give them your time and attention without expecting something in return, this makes the word "love" more meaningful.
Try arranging a special day for the two of you to do something the other enjoys. Participate in that activity with them, even though it's not your favorite thing to do and give them all your attention and just cherish the day. The words "I love you" will come freely from both of you at the end of the day.
Your sweetheart will see that you mean what you say by giving of yourself.
If you enjoy writing or are creative you might try your hand at composing a short poem or "love" letter to them, or buy a beautiful card or small little gift. Go ahead and leave it under the bed pillow for them, or anywhere they might be surprised to find it.
How about doing some chores or work around the house before your sweetheart asks you to? Maybe even do something more than they would expect you to do. Before their very eyes it is done, without them nagging you. How much you love them couldn't be more apparent.
When said at the appropriate times, with just the right feeling from your heart, truly the simple words "I love you" can be the most exhilarating sounds your ears will hear.
