Ways to Say “I love you”
These will backfire if 1) you love someone whose goal is to take advantage of you, or 2) You utilize, even inadvertently, the tiniest hint of sarcasm:
- You look really nice.
- Iʼve got your back.
- Could you use some help with that?
- Can I get that for you?
- Your opinion means a lot to me.
- You know; youʼre really good at that.
- Iʼll listen for as long as it takes.
- Youʼve worked really hard today, thank you.
- You did a great job on the…..
- Thatʼs a really good idea.
- Take your time.
- Of course I would do that for you.
- Which movie (TV show, etc.) would you like to see?
- No, youʼre not crazy.
- Iʼm sorry youʼre having a bad day.
- That must have felt awful.
- What do you think would be the fairest way to handle this?
- Thank you.
