Dude’s List: 11 Ways He Says “I Love You”


It’s no secret that some guys have a little bit of a tough time saying those three little words. Sometimes the way we show our affection doesn’t exactly compute as to how you think we should or how you want us to show it. And we’ve all dealt with messes that that kind of misreading of signals can lead to. Why can’t more guys just say it and mean it and it be done with? That’s another Dude’s List for another time. Today, I want to let you in on some of the ways he can say “I love you” without actually having to say, well, you know…

There you have it, ladies. 11 ways men say “I love you” without actually having to say, you know, it. We tend to show more than tell. Actions over words, as the cliché goes. Although, it’s kind of hard not to feel like the whole idea of saying “I love you” isn’t a little cliché in and of itself. Cliché in a good way though. One of the things a lot of guys don’t understand, hell, let’s just say people, is that speaking is an action. Revealing is an action. Confessing is an action. Giving is an action. And there’s no greater gift that finding a way to give love, nos matter how you might do that.

I love you,

The Dude
