Creating and Improving Your Own Love ExpressionsWith a little work you can create your own, improved “I love you” messages. One way to do this is to use the name of the person you’re talking or writing to. Another is to use terms of endearment like sweetheart, darling, honey, beloved, dearest, etc.. Still another way is to use special nicknames. One caution here, be sure that nicknames don’t have any negative or put-down quality to the person you’re saying them to. Some couples go through the meditation exercise of discovering what is known as their special, spirit names and using them with each other, which is said to add great power to one’s “I love you” messages.
Alliteration is sometimes helpful. “ Loving you, Barbara, is beautiful” and “I am crazy in love with you Carol” are examples. Of course if you can be poetic that helps too. In any case why not see if you can vary the way you get your “I love you” messages across and, thereby, make your love expressions a little more interesting and able to have a little more impact.
As always –Go and Grow in Love
