    A lot of people talk about how much they love their significant other. They do all this talking. But I've learned that talking is completely different from action. So how far would you go to let you significant other or possible significant other know that you love them? That you want them? What would be a defining thing that you would do?

    i don't think there is a defining thing because i'm one of those people that want to be shown and show all day long, now that doesn't mean material things, you can buy things for me and it isn't as meaningful as your actions btw there isn't a limited as to how far anyone would go

    Say the magic words...

    "I do". 'Cause I ain't saying those words unless I am SERIOUSLY diggin' ya.

    Also, I know many people give up themselves sexually very gratuituously, but I do not, and I think that generally speaking, if (a woman especially) is going to give of herself sexually, that speaks volumes (unless she gives it up indiscriminately anyway).

    Yes, talk most definitely is cheap. I like Nia don't say I love you unless I mean it. Some people just throw those words around and not think anything of it. I will do whatever for my significant other but at the same time not disrespect myself. When I choose to love a person that means I'm there through thick and thin. It has nothing to do with material goods or anything that you could physically touch.

    well i somewhat define it this way:
    before speaking the word love show that you love
    not by a new car the mate will ride but not love ...it's a thank you
    a new home the significant other will live but not love
    but to give devoted time and share with caring, that moment to listen intently , bring your honesty & loyality is a strong statement is action before talking , loving your significant other not sexually but mentally , physically & spiritually is also action
    then a few material thing to add in the relationship most small one to show that you are there for them ....

    Now when it come to saying the magical words of
    I LOVE YOU !
    meaning it from the heart will show not by the look
    on a face but by taking the mate hand to place that very
    token of ring and marriage this will also say you love your mate
    by the proposal ,
    being beside her in the hard low painful times too comfort
    also give my actions that i love her sure a rose a day why not
    and cook , clean, wash it's also my way to show her so i will go
    as far as i can to allow her to feel that i am for her and she can count on me to be there.....so when i say I Love you she will know i mean it, these things say i want her as well
    respecting and understanding are two keys for the significant other , mate or lover their are many way you can show it if you mean it ............this just me and my thoughts on defining it and letting it be known. But the fancy stuff is not real love it's buying love or trying to win a heart.. i could be wrong but this just me.

    love to hear more on this thread about how a person would show their true love to the significant other... nice topic sayword
