7 ways that men say “I LOVE YOU” without actually saying it

by Laurence-Emmanuelle Bédard Published on October 18, 2014

It’s not always easy for men to express what they feel or for women to decode their secret language. Men do love us. They just express it in different ways, like these, for example... ​

They text you....for no special reason.

The mere fact that your guy has been thinking about you, that he thought to himself “I’m going to send her a text”, may be a sign of true affection in some men.

They give you loving looks.

If the two of you are chatting with friends at a bar and he periodically throws goo-goo eyes your way, then you are obviously on his mind!

They listen to you.

Say what you will, but when a man pays attention when you speak, it says a lot about your relationship because it’s his way of telling you that what you have to say really matters to him.



They touch you.

If he holds your hand when you walk together, randomly strokes your hair, or shows affection in other ways that don’t all lead to the bedroom, it’s because he wants to be close to you.

They tell you their guy friends really like you.

Telling you that his friends like you may be a roundabout way of expressing his own feelings!

They smile after hugging you.

When a man has deep emotions but doesn’t know how to put them into words, he will unconsciously reveal them through his facial expressions, like a smile after a hug.

They want to do tons of things with you.

There are many ways to say “I love you” that don’t involve words. When a man prepares a great meal for you, what does that express? Love perhaps....?
