With that being said, let’s get into the meat of this article on how to prove you love someone.
1. Be accepting of their flaws
Nobody is perfect but the beautiful thing about love is that it finds perfection even in the face of flaws.
To some degree, looks matter but only in creating attraction and holding interest. Love extends beyond physicality.
It sees all but chooses to love everything about that person.
That’s a sign of love and it’s a great way of proving you love someone unconditionally.
Don’t insult your partners body image. Don’t make a big fuss about their flaws.
Instead, draw attention to their most attractive qualities. It will make them feel good as well as strengthen their confidence.
When giving a compliment, do so from the heart.

2. Be consistent in their life
It’s easy to show up during the early phases of courtship or when you have a lot to gain or enjoy but that doesn’t last forever.
All relationships go through ups and downs.
You’ll also find yourself going through phases of high interest as well as some boredom and difficulty.
Sticking around and being consistent in his or her life is a non-negotiable way to prove you love someone.
Keep making those calls, show up when they need you, make an effort to take your partner on dates and keep trying to be a part of their life.
Nothing proves love more than consistently showing up.
3. Don’t gaslight them
In any healthy relationship, there is no room for gaslighting especially when you’re trying to prove your love for someone.
There may be times when you screw up royally or make a few mistakes.
Rather than being manipulative and treating your partner as if he or she is crazy, own up to your mistakes and focus on making amends.
Taking ownership of your downfalls is a sign of respect towards your partner and the relationship.
Having the guts and self-awareness to admit when you’re wrong will prove that you love someone.
It places greater importance on love over self-preservation. Selflessness, in and of itself, is a quality of true love.
4. Be honest with them
Honesty is the best policy and it’s a crucial characteristic of communication.
When you are able to honestly share your thoughts, opinions and feelings with someone, it will show them how much you care.
It takes quite a bit of courage, personal investment and courage to open yourself up to the point of being vulnerable.
Most people are only able to do this when they truly love someone and feel loved in return.
Honesty creates intimacy, trust, understanding, forgiveness and assurance.
It’s non-negotiable in a relationship that is to survive a long time.
If you like something, say it. If you don’t like something, say it. Be respectful when exercising honesty but give the other person an opportunity to learn about you on a sincere level.
5. Give them your respect
Gaslighting, abuse, rudeness, insults and stonewalling are not signs of true love or respect.
On the contrary, they show a lack of care and consideration for someone’s feelings.
- Make an effort to be respectful to the one you love.
- Talk to them like an equal.
- Listen to them with an open mind.
- Be present when you’re around them.
- Don’t belittle or mock what’s important to them, even if you don’t understand it.
The more respect you have towards someone, the more it proves that you love them.
If there’s one thing you should take away from this article, let it be this – respect is a two-way street.
What you give is what you’ll get.
If you want to be treated with respect, make a conscious effort to treat others with respect, specifically those people who mean a lot to you.
In other words, don’t take them for granted.

6. Pay attention when they speak
One of the main reasons why so many couples drift apart or lose the connection is because they stop listening to their partner.
They become so comfortable in the relationship that they stop showing an active interest in their partner’s level of interest, attraction and happiness.
Complaints from a partner should never be ignored or brushed aside.
This will make them feel unheard and unappreciated. This morphs into a feeling of being misunderstood.
When someone doesn’t feel like they are truly understood and appreciated, their desire to remain involved with another person diminishes significantly.
They start to close up and become defensive.
At which point, the chance of that relationship or potential relationship surviving or developing is slim unless something changes.
This is why it’s so very important to pay attention to what your partner is saying.
7. Make an effort to be romantic
Just because you made someone fall for you or want a relationship with you doesn’t mean you can stop making an effort.
On the contrary, for love and attraction to flourish, it has to be nurtured.
This will require you to be romantic for as long as the relationship lasts.
And you know what, that should excite you.
The whole point of being in a relationship is to share the fruits of love and romance happens to be just that.
When you love someone, there’s something truly satisfying and fulfilling about putting a smile on their face and making them feel special.
You don’t have to be over the top.
Simple romantic gestures can go a long way in keeping the romance alive and burning bright.
Write sweet notes for your partner, court them regularly, compliment them, help with chores, be spontaneous, cook for them, go on fun dates and so forth.
All these little actions will truly prove you love someone unconditionally and sincerely.

8. Show some enthusiasm by contacting them
Just because they always message you or call doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t.
Don’t wait for them to always make the effort of opening the doors of communication.
Show some enthusiasm and make an effort to find out how they’re feeling, what they’re up to and when they would like to go out for a date.
Not only does this prove your love for someone but it also makes them feel appreciated, desired and noticed.
This is a simple but effective way to make someone feel good about themselves.
9. Be or become trustworthy
Trust goes a long way in any relationship. You may or may not have done things to damage the trust but as long as you have a chance, do everything in your power to be trustworthy.
Build trust by being honest, open, committed, consistent and forthcoming even when it’s not easy to do.
The more of an effort you make towards building trust, the better your relationship will be.
Even if you messed up, all the effort you put forth going forward will prove that you love them and that you can be trustworthy.
Take it day by day and eventually, you’ll find yourself being the best version of yourself.

10. Prioritize them in your life
Loving someone means putting them above certain things and people in your life.
It also means taking the time to be with them even when it may not be convenient.
This form of sacrifice is one that not only proves you love someone but it also proves that you are willing to act on that love.
It’s easy to have all the best intentions in the world.
It’s easy to talk about those intentions. But, it’s not easy to turn those intentions into real actions.
And that’s what you should be doing when you’re trying to figure out how to prove you love someone.
Be willing to make some sacrifices in your life to be with them.
You may temporarily upset some people or have to step outside of your comfort zone but in the end, it will be worth it because you’re doing it in the name of love.
11. Express your feelings honestly and sincerely
As much as it’s important to show your love with actions, that doesn’t eliminate the need for communicating your feelings to someone.
Those three words matter.
Even if you’ve been with someone for a significant period of time and they know that you love them, still voice it.
Furthermore, when you are upset, sad, excited, flattered and so forth, share those feelings with your partner.
It will create more intimacy and strengthen the understanding between the two of you.
The more you understand each other, the easier it becomes to prove your love for each other.
Good communication expresses your feelings and thoughts in a manner that doesn’t emphasize blame.
The aim of communication in a relationship is to create understanding and compromise rather than a sense of righteousness or dominance.
Even during arguments, when expressing your feelings, do so with the intention of focusing on how a specific behavior makes you feel rather than focusing on the behavior itself.
This will allow your partner to learn exactly how their behavior negatively or positively affects you.
By doing this, your partner will be able to adapt or enhance their behavior.
Knowing that you’re expressing your feelings to help the relationship will be a solid way or proving your love.
12. Don’t walk away from them during difficult times
It’s easy to be loving and present in someone’s life when things are going well and they’re feeling their best.
But, life is such that it can swing a storm in your direction without any warning.
When that storm hits, it can leave behind chaos and destruction.
If you truly love someone, you’ll stand by their side during those chaotic and difficult periods.
That’s when love is usually tested. And your partner will know for certain just exactly how much you value them.
It’s not going to be easy at all.
There’ll be times when your intention to be in their life will be questioned but what matters is whether you give up or stand strong.
I’ve been through difficulties over the last couple of months and it was not easy to be with me and yet my partner stuck by my side, forgave me during my worst moments and loved me despite everything.
That level of love has changed me as a person in ways I could never express and it also taught me what loving someone truly entails.
Weather the storm and you’ll discover a level and depth to love that not everyone experiences.
It won’t be perfect at first but it will be the most real thing you’ll ever experience and that, in itself, is perfection.
13. Show an interest in their favorite activities and hobbies
We all love and appreciate people who take the time to learn about our likes and dislikes.
Having a keen interest of this nature creates rapport and chemistry.
Most people feel good when they can talk about themselves, specifically things that they care about.
When they notice that someone is making an effort to actually pay attention and show an interest in these things with enthusiasm, it makes that person feel loved and cared for.
Why would someone show so much interest in something they don’t even know about? It has to be because they care about the person.
And that is a beautiful way of proving your love for someone because it has no ulterior motive.
14. Be supportive of their goals and dreams
Chasing goals and dreams can be difficult because a lot of people are of the opinion that stability trump’s the pursuit of inner fulfillment.
In no way will I ever discard the importance of stability but I don’t think you have to choose between the two.
Loving someone can simply mean providing encouragement or support when someone takes a road less traveled on.
Unless they’re heading for certain doom, there should be no reason to discourage your partner from pursuing their purpose in life or challenging themselves by wanting to build an epic career for themselves.
Because it’s so hard to get support from most people, when you provide that to someone with sincerity and genuineness, it will show them just how much you want to prove you love them.
15. Give them the freedom to choose you
Some men and women mistake ownership and control for love but that couldn’t be more wrong.
You don’t have to be so possessive of your partner that they feel claustrophobic and overwhelmed in the relationship.
Don’t be threatened by other people, even their friends and family.
Give them the opportunity to choose to spend time with you and if they love you, they will.
A true sign of love is freedom.
And you’ll be quite surprised how that person eventually chooses to be with you and only you when they realize just how much they love you and you love them.
16. Don’t stop flirting with them
Whether you’re with someone for a year or decades, don’t just allow the spark to die.
There’s value in practicing the things you did during the early phase of courtship.
Those behaviors and habits nurture and maintain attraction, desire and intimacy.
Make your partner feel desired and attractive by flirting with them when the moment is right. Just don’t wait for a moment that never comes.
Make the right moment by romancing them on a regular basis.
You’ll find that your partner appreciates the effort and turns back into the girl or guy you fell in love with during those early days of falling for each other.
It’s easy to get comfortable and fall into a rut when you’re with someone for a significant period of time.
This is why it’s important to make an effort to flirt because it proves that you not only still desire them but you appreciate them and that is a surefire sign of love.
17. Make plans with them for the future
When your only intention is to be with someone because you truly love them, making plans for the future with them only solidifies that love.
It shows that you are willing to take leaps with your partner and to set aside any fears or anxiety you have for commitment or the future.
For someone who battles with commitment issues, it requires some courage and personal development to embrace the fears you have and still moves forward with your relationship enthusiastically.
Even if it’s not easy for you, making an effort to try is loving.
18. Be kind to their friends and family
It pains me to see someone have to deal with a partner who not only makes no effort to integrate with their friends and family but actually causes issues.
This is not a loving thing to do.
When you enter someone’s life, your goal should be to add to it, not take away those things or people who matter to them.
Be compromising. Be considerate. Make an effort to connect with their loved ones.
You don’t have to become a doormat but you can certainly focus on developing a sound relationship with these people who are closest to the person you love.
Your relationship will thrive easier when you have support from those who matter.
19. Fix your most toxic traits
Nobody is perfect and we all can make huge mistakes. I know I have in my life. But, if you have a chance to be better and to make things right, jump at it.
Do everything in your power to become the best version of yourself.
It may not undo your mistakes but it can make up for them as well as give you a chance at building a relationship that trumps what it was before.
When you truly love someone, that desire to leave your old toxic self in the past heightens and you will naturally gravitate towards becoming better.
When you lose sight of that love and value for who you have and what you have, that’s when you go down a dark road.
I strongly advise you to work on yourself and fix those toxic traits or habits that are damaging your relationship and your life.
You’ll become a better person and in the process, you’ll prove that you love someone truly and unconditionally.
What I advise you to do is ask your partner to rate you as a partner every few weeks. Based on that rating, ask him or her to point out things you did or didn’t do to make them feel loved.
Based on this little exercise, you can learn a lot about what your partner needs from you.

20. Let your guard down and be vulnerable
Being guarded and closed in can make you feel safe but it can be detrimental to the people in your life who care about you.
They’ll always feel pushed away from you in spite of how much of an effort they make to bridge the gap.
This can result in both of you feeling lonely in a relationship or unloved.
Letting your guard down will be very uncomfortable and scary at first.
But, if you endure and resist the urge of falling back into old ways, you’ll develop a bond that is almost unbreakable with your loved one.
Make an effort to open up emotionally and psychologically.
Take a chance at being vulnerable and it will bring a lot of happiness in your life when you meet the right people.
Sometimes, all you may need to prove that you love someone is to make a few small changes to your behavior.
Other times, you may need to implement most of these tips for a significant amount of time before your partner begins to trust that you love them.
It may not be an easy route to a strong and loving relationship but it’s more than possible for as long as you are willing to try.
Don’t listen to those people who tell you that a relationship is too far gone to be saved.
Unless the person you’re hearing it from is the one you love and despite all your effort nothing has changed, don’t give up.
Keep fighting for your love and make every effort you can to prove your love for a period of time.
Either you’ll end up in the best relationship of your life with a partner who is beyond in love and happy with you or you’ll be able to walk away knowing that you did everything you possibly could to make it work.
