13 Ways To Tell Someone 'I Love You' Without Ever Saying Those Words

Telling someone "I love you" isn't the only way to show them you care. You can compliment their outfit, buy them coffee, or simply ask how their day went. Whether it's your boyfriend, girlfriend, best friend, mom, dad, sibling, roommate, WHOMSTEVER IT MAY BE, these 13 things are little actions you can do to show them you love them, without having to say it.

Leave them little notes

If you have to run out the door in the morning without saying goodbye, write them a cute note telling them to have a nice day!

Squeeze them extra hard when they hug you

Or better yet, give their back a little rub.

Tell them to text you when they arrive home safely

It shows you care!

Make sure to say goodnight to them

And never, ever, go to bed angry.

Show them songs that remind you of them

Or, show them anything at all that reminds you of them for that matter.

Text them to ask how their day is going

Call to check in on them

This is similar to asking them how their day is going, but with a more personal touch.

Buy them coffee without them asking you to

Tell them you're proud of them!

Send them snail mail

Personally, I love getting short, little letters from my mom while being away at school. Even if you live with this person, put a letter in your mailbox and make them go get the mail — it probably will bring the biggest smile to their face.

Full-heartedly laugh at their jokes

Compliment them

Help boost their self-confidence!

Actually listen to them

Don't just pretend to hear them and nod your head occasionally.

Life is hard, and is even harder with a mental illness. Even if you aren't clinically diagnosed with depression or anxiety, in the hardest times of your life you can probably associate with several of these thoughts. Fear not, everyone else is thinking them too. Maybe we just need a big, loving, group therapy session (or six).

A Letter To My Heartbroken Self

It will be okay, eventually.

A Letter To My Heartbroken Self

Breakups are hard. There's nothing comparable to the pain of losing someone you thought would be in your life forever. Someone who said all the right things at the right times. Someone who would give you the reassurance you needed, whenever you needed it. And then one day, it just... stops. Something changes. Something makes you feel like you're suddenly not good enough for him, or anyone for that matter.

6 Questions To Ask Yourself When Cleaning Up Your Room

This holiday break is the perfect time to get away from the materialistic frenzy of the world and turn your room into a decluttered sanctuary.


Cleaning isn’t just for spring. In fact, I find school’s holiday break to be a very effective time for decluttering. You’re already being bombarded by the materialistically-infatuated frenzy of society’s version of Christmas, Hanukah, etc. It’s nice to get out of the claustrophobic avarice of the world and come home to a clean, fresh, and tidy room. While stacking up old books, CDs, and shoes may seem like no big deal, it can become a dangerous habit. The longer you hang onto something, whether it be for sentimental value or simply routine, it becomes much harder to let go of. Starting the process of decluttering can be the hardest part. To make it a little easier, get out three boxes and label them Donate, Storage, and Trash. I'm in the middle of the process right now, and while it is quite time consuming, it is also so relieving and calming to see how much you don't have to deal with anymore. Use these six questions below to help decide where an item gets sorted or if it obtains the value to stay out in your precious sanctuary from the world.
