"The soul that can speak through the eyes can also kiss with a gaze."
–Gustavo Adolfo Bécquer, Spanish poet.
Words have a huge impact on human beings; some of them can give you a lot of joy; others, however, can shatter your heart. When you're in front of the one you love, many phrases come to your mind, and you express them immediately, but at some point, they wear out; they have been told so many times that they no longer make any sense. No one knows how many I love you's turn into a simple "hello" or "how are you." Furthermore, sometimes words aren't always enough.
Do you love me? Do you miss me? These are some of the questions you've made to them, but are "yes or no" the answers you want? They say actions speak louder than words; in this way, determination, communication, and trust are probably the best criteria to know if that love is as genuine as you think. It's not that you doubt it or that you don't think it's real; it simply has to do with the fact that human beings always need more.
When Cosmo wants to woo Raphina in Sing Street, the only thing he can think of to get her attention is to create a band and write songs for her to perform in the videos just so he can be near her. He doesn't say he's interested in her; he acts so that things happen.
It could be more than enough for them to tell you they love you, but they also love their pets, their parents, their favorite bands, etc. So, how do you really know if they truly love you? Or, how can you demonstrate your love for them without having the need to say it? It's simple: there are simple gestures you can do to let them know. In the past, lovers used to stand below the person's balcony and shout their feelings to the world like Romeo did to Juliet, or they would give flower bouquets; that was probably enough. Now, there's a million ways to show that your feelings are genuine and go beyond words.
1. Always keep your promises
2. Make a playlist
Probably you remember that time when one would make a copy of a CD with their favorite songs. If you're feeling particularly nostalgic and overpowered by your feelings why not pick the songs, put them on a playlist, and let the lyrics express what you feel.
3. Organize a trip
Although you might need a bigger budget to plan a trip, you can always head to your favorite spots in your city and admire the free views. You could also organize a trip to a nearby town and spend a couple of days away from everything and everybody.
4. Write a letter
No, sending a letter is not something from the previous century. Imagine that person opening their door or their mailbox and finding a paper with all your feelings expressed. Maybe you've already done many of these, but I bet you've never dared to send it through traditional mail. Remember, words can stay forever on paper.
6. Print pictures of you two together
The same way as letters, photos are getting trapped in the digital world, and maybe it's time to print them so that those special moments prevail in a physical form. This way, you'll be able to go back and see and touch these images, without having to take out your phone.
Love comes in many shapes. It's indescribable; therefore, words aren't always enough to express it. When we're really in love, we don't always know how to express it. The key is to make sure that person is aware of the deep feelings you have for them. These details could help you send that message you want.
