My husband shows me he loves me by listening to my never ending dribble of conversation.  He doesn't act bored or anything.  
He is always there for me, is loyal and available.  He puts me before everyone else.  He says sorry when he is wrong.  
He brings me chocalate covered strawberries if I'm having a bad day because I love them.  He'd never drink the last Dr. Pepper in the house because he knows I might want it.  He tells me he loves me every day and makes sure I don't doubt that.

Aww, how sweet. :)

My bf always tells me how much he loves me, though he doesn't 'show' it as often. I do love hearing him tell me and he is very open about everything. I just wish he'd show it more.

Well, my husband is a pretty basic guy.  He asked me one time for ideas of things I'd like him to do.  I promptly made a list of 500 things.  Recently I was getting something out of the desk that is ours but he uses most of the time-------- and there was that list. It's like 9 years old.  He had some things with check marks by it and some things written at the bottom that he added.  I realized that not all guys have that natural ability to know just what to do.  So give your guy some hints.  It will feel just as good when he gives you a neck massage on a day in which you are tired whether he did it on his own or if you asked him.  Eventually, he will know what to do to make you feel special without your helping him along.  good luck

Thanks! My bf has asked me before for ideas on how to show more, but I came up blank at the moment. I can think of some ideas.. but I guess I don't know how to word it. Don't know how you came up with 500 things.

Well, I tend to go a little overboard.  You could start with a list of 50 things and think small.  Everyone would love a new necklace--------  but a neck rub is more doable.  Taking your car to the car wash for you, letting you have the front page of the newspaper first if it is your favorite part, etc.  If you think in terms of things like that-------- you'll get to 50 easy.  Good luck and have fun with it.

He treats me like a Queen! Small romantic vacations and I get to chose where to go! Has never forgotten an anniversary, Valentine, birthday, etc., Attention to small detail is a plus, loves me for who I am no matter what. Takes me out to breakfast every Saturday morning, when I was layed off, he paid my car payment (was repaid). He is the only man that can make me laugh strongly. He's silly, fun, intelligent, annoying, caring, strong and gets on my nerves quite a bit. He's a keeper :)

Specialmom (Kay)....he takes me to a place where they make home made fresh, great big chocolate cover strawbarries, my favorate too! He will also take my car to be wash and pay for it and fill up the gas tank too. He drives from the far suburbs to the city weekly just to be with me and the man can cook!!!! He's Italian and can out cook me anytime and most importantly, he simply loves me as I am and for who I am as I love him.

When we argue and he knows he is wrong he will make me a cup of coffee and bring it to me. Or he will go to the store and only buy everything he knows I like. Or he will look at me and show all his teeth to make me laugh! Problem is, I know he is trying to be nice so I have to be nice too and eat all this stuff! Makes it real hard to stay lean and mean if ya know what I mean.

I get a LONG hug every night before he leaves for work. He calls me every night around the same time to tell me that he's thinking about me and that he loves me. If he is the one to go grocery shopping, he'll pick up some of the things that he knows I like and tell the kids to stay away from them..LOL! He cuddles with me on the nights that he's off and we actually get to sleep in bed together. He's always making me laugh by making up silly songs or changing the lyrics to songs. When we sit next to each other on the couch watching t.v. he puts his hand in my lap and will put my hand on his (if it isn't there already). His status on facebook almost always has "I love my sexy wife" on it or something to do with me. He'll tell me how good I look every morning before I leave for work. He calls me "the boss"

I'm a lucky gal!!!

Ohhh.  I like that "boss" comment.  I might put that on my list of 500 things!

He's always complimenting me on how nice and pretty I look, even at moments like after I wake up in the morning and look my worst. He helps out with the house chores without me ever having to ask, and he makes special effort to do the chores I hate (dish washing and laundry). He cuddles with me every chance he gets, and strokes or plays with my hair. He gets me Starbucks Frappacinos at the grocery store because that I really like them but never get them for myself. On weekend mornings, he will make breakfast sometimes and while I'm still stuck in bed nursing our baby, he will bring me breakfast in bed. He always offers to pick something up for dinner when I get home late from work, knowing I might be too stressed out or tired to want to make dinner--I wish he could cook, but I won't complain, lol!

AHP84, sounds like you have a nice man that is sensitive to your needs!  

I'm enjoying this thread and hearing what the significant others of the great people here do to show love.  Everyone deserves to feel loved!

My fiance will text me an early morning "Good Morning, xoxoxo" and before I go to bed I get a "Good nite, luv u, xoxoxo"......he's a keeper!

My bf sends me a good morning text a lot and he'll randomly send a text during the day to say he's thinking about me. He's very supportive and has stuck by me through a number of problems I have had with my health and the passing of my cousin. He has the biggest smile on his face when he sees me and gives my a big hug. I'll work on homework for class at his apartment and he'll ask if he can help out or quiz me on info. He'll kiss me on the forehead and just cuddle with me. He's amazing! :)

Awwww, sweetpea, that's so sweet! :)

He is very sweet. He wasn't always like that, it got really rocky a little while back, but we worked on it. And it's been amazing every since. He's one of the guys who needs to be helped along a little, like specialmom said.
