Staying up with all things marriage, I’ve been reading a new book and will be passing on information from it. The book is called Reclaim Your Relationship by Ron Potter-Efron and Pat Potter-Efron. More non-verbal ways to say “I Love You” are explored today:
- Just look at your spouse with a soft, loving gaze.
- Mouth the words “I Love You” from across the room.
- Use nonverbal humor: grab your chest and fall over and a loving swoon; draw a heart on the steamy bathroom mirror.
- Listen to your spouse as if hearing his or her words were the single most important thing you could ever do.
- Notice the small things that relax, comfort or calm your spouse and offer them when needed. A hug, a warm blanket, turning the lights on so he or she can read better – over time these caring act will become associated with love.
