Some people think that in order to say "I love you" to their spouse, they must buy fancy gifts, go on expensive dates and say those three words all the time. But there are so many simple, and far less expensive ways to let your man know you love him. Here are some of my favorite ways:
1 Cook a Fabulous Supper and Don't Forget to Dress up Sexy!

You don't have to be going out to put on that sexy dress. Slip it on and serve up your sweetheart's favorite meal and make sure he knows what is for dessert! I am certain he will eat the fastest you have ever seen him, and maybe even offer to help with the dishes!
2 Cook a Wonderful Breakfast in Bed for Him

Every now and then, it doesn't hurt to serve your sweetie breakfast in bed - though if you do it too much, you will spoil them, and that is just asking for trouble! Fix up a nice morning meal and serve it while wearing one of his shirts! (Men find that strangely sexy sometimes!)
3 Change Your Weekend Plans to do Something with Him

Even if his idea of a good time isn't the same as yours, occasionally giving up your fun time to do something with your man can be most rewarding - for both of you! So, next weekend, plan to go bike riding, or hiking, or watch the races on TV with him! By your actions, he will know you care.
4 Put Some Spice into the Bedroom

A boring bedroom and everyday routines can lead to boredom with each other. Keep him guessing by constantly changing things around and trying new things. The fact that you put time and thought into pleasing your guy will let him know you love him.
5 Take Time to Listen

Just because God gave us a mouth does not mean we cannot use our ears. Too many times, we women tend to get caught up in our own problems and bad days that we forget that even the toughest of men have problems and bad days too. If we show that we can listen when he needs to talk, it is the same as screaming "I love you!" Your relationship will be much stronger when you learn the value of listening to the needs of your spouse.
6 Ego, Ego, Ego!

Men have BIG egos and they must be fed! Men need to feel as if you think they are the most hunky man you know - they need to know you think they are strong and capable. So, next time you are at that party with friends, mosey on over and whisper in his ear how much you noticed him muscles from across the room, then watch your man strut like a peacock the rest of the evening!
7 Don't Complain

There is nothing that will turn a person away quicker than another person always complaining. For every complaint you wish to say, put in a compliment along beside it!
Love for your sweetheart is not in money or fancy dates, but rather in letting them know how much they mean to you and how much you care! Do this, and your love affair will flourish and grow. How do you say “I love you” and mean it?
