11 sweet ways to tell your wife you love her without using a single word

Posted June 9

It’s one thing to tell your wife you love her and another to show it through actions. While she needs to hear those three words regularly, actions always speak louder than words.

Here are 11 sweet ways to tell your wife you love her without using a single word:

1. Let her sleep in

...as long as she’s not missing work or anything else in the morning. When the kids wake up, get them ready in the morning while your wife enjoys a few more zzz’s. She’ll be so grateful for this, and she’ll know that she married the best man ever.

2. Make her breakfast

She might be thinking there’s some special occasion (or you did something wrong and you’re trying to apologize!), but she won’t object to this notion of love- even if all you’ve made for her is a bowl of cereal.

3. Tidy up the house

Clean the breakfast dishes, wipe off the counters and make the bed. Everyone loves a clean home- and every woman loves a man who cleans. Your wife will feel grateful that you’ve taken a few things off her to-do list, and she’ll love you for letting her relax a bit.

4. Put the toilet seat down

This is such a simple gesture that really makes a big difference. Putting the seat down lets your wife know that you’re aware of her and you want to make even the simplest things easier on her.

5. Leave her little notes

Write on the mirror with a dry-erase marker, leave post-its around the house or sneak a little note into her purse to find later in the day. They can be short and sweet- even if you just draw a heart, it’s a sweet reminder to your wife that you’re thinking about her.

6. Put your phone down

Let your wife know she’s your priority by putting your phone down and giving her your full attention. When you put your phone and other devices down to spend some quality time with your wife, you’ll be able to strengthen your relationship with her.

7. Make her laugh

Whatever it is that makes her laugh, do it. (Extra points if you manage to make her laugh when she’s having a bad day.) Be a little goofy, and do what it takes to make her smile and laugh. She’ll recognize and appreciate the effort you put in to make her happy.

8. Brag about her

Everyone loves a little confidence boost. Even if it’s a little embarrassing, your wife really appreciates your vocal PDA. She knows you really love her when you want everyone to know how great she is.

9. Listen to her

It’s pretty typical for men to want to fix problems, but sometimes your wife just wants to vent. She doesn’t want you to fix the problem she’s having with a friend, she just wants you to listen without trying to come up with a solution. When you can give her this kind of selfless attention, she’ll know you really love her.

10. Watch her favorite shows with her

Watching a show or movie is so much more enjoyable when you have someone to watch it with. She’ll love being able to talk to you about the characters and plot holes that drive her nuts, and she’ll love when you respond with the same excitement about the fictional worlds she loves so much.

11. Hold her

Sometimes your wife just needs a long, sincere hug and nothing else. Hold her and comfort her. Make sure she feels safe in your arms- literally and figuratively. There are even health benefits to hugging- they can help your mood, behavior and physiology. So go on, keep hugging your wife. She’ll love you for it- and she’ll know you love her, too.

It’s not difficult to express love on a daily basis, but it makes all the difference. What sweet things has your husband done for you to tell you he loves you?
