If you want to tell the guy you’re dating that you love him, kudos to you! It’s not easy to make this move and saying the L-word first can be stressful. You never know how your partner will react, even if he’s made the relationship official and seems to have strong feelings for you. This is why choosing the right time, date activity, and location to set you scene for saying those three words is so important. It also helps to know what declaration of love your partner will appreciate the most depending on his astro sign. For example, if you’re in love with a Cancer guy, you should invite him to meet your parents. This will make him swoon since he’s such a traditional and sentimental guy. On the other hand, if you’re dating a Sagittarius guy, don’t beat around the bush when telling him how you feel. The act of love he’ll most appreciate is being direct and honest with him, so just tell him that you love him. Lay your cards on the table without too many frills! Here is how to tell and show the guy you’re dating that you love him, based on his astro sign.
24-Aries: Kiss Him When He Least Expects It
Aries is someone who likes to show what he feels for his partner, instead of just talking about it. By reaching in and giving him a peck on the cheek, you’re basically saying, “I love you.”
He’ll love that you’re not afraid to be bold and to make your feelings known in an action-based way. After all, love is a verb.
While saying those three words is important, showing how much you love someone is even more amazing and it’s sure to make your Aries partner swoon!
23-Why: He’s Open About His Feelings
If you’ve been dating your Aries boyfriend for a while, chances are, you already know if he’s in love with you. When it comes to showing love, Aries is a bit of an open book.
He’s a passionate person who likes to lay his cards on the table and show you how much he values and loves you.
That’s what makes kissing him out of the blue a totally safe move — you can feel confident knowing that he’s got feelings for you and you’re just taking them to the next step with a smooch.
22-Taurus: Treat Him To His Favorite Meal
What can be better than showing someone you love them by cooking or buying them their favorite meal? It shows them that you pay attention to what they like and that you want to make them feel good, which is an important part of loving someone. The Taurus guy will appreciate good food over many other things, so you’re on the right track if you’re tempted to take him to his favorite restaurant when telling him that you love him. It’s the perfect way to set the right romantic scene.
21-Why: Food Is One Of His Greatest Pleasures
The Taurus guy loves good food. Chances are, you’ve seen him post many delicious meals on Instagram and perhaps you wondered what that was about. Now you know it’s because he’s the foodie of the 12 astrological signs. Telling him you love him over a delicious cheesecake is more than just about his love of food, though.
He loves pampering his partner and being pampered — he can be quite romantic in that way — and food is one of his chosen love languages.
His heart (and stomach) will appreciate you telling him you love him over a yummy meal.
20-Gemini: Test The Waters With A Love-Eyed Emoji
It’s not always easy to tell someone you love them. Sometimes it’s good to test what your partner’s reaction will be before you take the plunge and blurt out your feelings. When it comes to Gemini guys, they can be difficult to read. You might know your Gemini guy likes you based on his behavior, but not feel 100 percent sure that you should take the next step.
To help eliminate some of the confusion, send him a love-eyed emoji after giving him a compliment or during conversation when there’s a flirty vibe.
How he responds to it might help you set the scene for love.
19-Why: Gemini Can Be Difficult To Understand Or Get The Truth Out Of, So You Want To Test The Waters First
Gemini can be difficult to understand. You might even be confused as to what they really feel at times. This isn’t your imagination. As pointed out by Love Devani, one of the reasons for this behavior is because people born under the sign of Gemini are flexible and constantly changing.
They know how to adapt to their environments and this makes it difficult for those around them to know what they’re really about.
It therefore helps to test the waters with a text before declaring your undying love.
18-Cancer: Ask Him If He Wants To Meet Your Folks
Telling someone you love them isn’t just about those three little words. There are many relationship milestones that can hint to the person you’re dating that you see them as someone you’d want to have a committed, long-term relationship with.
If you’re dating a guy born under the sign of Cancer, a good way to set the love ball rolling is to invite him to meet your parents the next time they’re in town.
He’ll love this because he likes to do things by the book. And, of course, everyone knows that meeting the parents is a big deal.
17-Why: He’s Traditional And Appreciates This Old-School Move
Cancer will like you showing your love by inviting him to meet your parents because he’s a traditional guy. As Insider points out, Cancer is sensitive and intuitive. They show their love by displaying a need to understand their partners. What better way to understand someone than to meet their family and see where they come from, right?
Cancer also values customs, heritage, and sentimentality.
He loves his family so much, so he’ll love to see what your relationship is like with your loved ones.
16-Leo: Invite Him Out With Your Friends And Tell Him How Much You Mean To Him When You Have Some Time To Yourselves
If you’re dating a Leo, you probably know how much he can be the life of the party. When telling him that you love him, then, make use of his love for having a good time.
Although telling him you love him is a serious milestone, it doesn’t have to be done in a serious way. You can use a relaxed, fun setting in order to get the message across to him in the best way.
A good idea is to invite him to a party with your friends, and when you get some time alone with him, tell him that he rocks your world.
15-Why: He Loves Being Surrounded By People, And He’ll See You Bringing Him Into Your Social Circle As A Show Of Commitment
Leo is one of the most social astrological signs. He loves being around people, enjoying himself, and being the center of attention everywhere he goes. Telling him you love him at a party will be good on many levels. You’re catering to his need to socialize.
You’re also letting him meet your friends, which he’ll appreciate because he’ll see it as a sign of greater commitment since you’re bringing him deeper into your life.
He’ll also love being showered with your attention. It’s a win!
14-Virgo: Help Him Out With Chores And Errands
Dating a Virgo can be stressful at times if you’re not as much of a perfectionist as he is. He likes everything to be clean and perfectly tidy. In fact, finding a partner who loves to clean and keeps an immaculate house will go great lengths to impress him! With that in mind, why not tell him you love him while helping him with some chores around the house? Maybe you could cook dinner together or wash dishes? It might not sound romantic, but it’ll work for the practical and logical Virgo.
13–Why: He Really Loves It When People Can Be Practical And Helpful
Not only is Virgo practical, but he likes it when his partner is too. Telling him you love him over an expensive dinner in a fancy restaurant or with sky-writing will just make him roll his eyes. Virgo prefers to see what someone’s about in a more realistic and raw way.
So, if you can roll up your sleeves and not be afraid to get to work, he’ll see you in a favorable light because you’re so helpful.
He’ll feel the love, that’s for sure, and he’ll like that you didn’t have to resort to grand gestures to show him how you feel.
12-Libra: Take Him To A Special Hiking Spot
Libra loves to show his love by being kind and romantic, as reported by Insider. So if you want to tell him you love him, he’ll appreciate you doing something romantic to set the scene.
Show him how much he means to you by putting in effort to find the perfect date activity in which to tell him you love him.
A great idea is to cater to his passions, instead of doing anything cliché or generic. If he loves hiking, for instance, take him to a gorgeous mountaintop where you can see the sunset. He’ll appreciate you going the extra mile to show him how you feel.
11-Why: He Loves Feeling Special
As Insider reports, Libra will always wine and dine their partners. They also love to feel the love and be on the receiving end of attention and care. As Astrology Lovegoes on to say, it’s important to always show the Libra man you care and even fuss over him because he loves the attention.
However, don’t push him to make a decision. So, when telling him you love him, let him take some time before telling you he loves you back, if he needs it.
It might seem like he has to make up his mind, but ruminating over things is just his way.
10-Scorpio: Write Him A Romantic Letter
Scorpio is a romantic and passionate sign. He doesn’t like anything generic, and has a taste for old-school romance. If you want to tell him you love him, don’t do anything that’s boring.
Make your declaration really personal and passionate.
A great idea is to write him a romantic letter — definitely don’t send your feelings via text, as that will fall short when it comes to romance in his eyes! Go the extra mile by sealing the envelope with wax and he’ll be knocked off his feet by how much care you’ve put into the task.
9-Why: He Wants Grand Gestures
One of the most important things to know about the Scorpio man is that he’s intense. If he loves, he loves deeply and will want to shower you with his attention. He doesn’t waste his time or hold back. He expects the same thing in return from his partner, however.
He loves grand gestures of love, like dancing in a quiet street, kissing in the rain, exchanging love letters, and dressing in your finest apparel to go to a romantic restaurant.
If you can dazzle him with a loving yet bold gesture, he’ll waste no time in making you his.
8-Sagittarius: Just Say It, Already!
If you’re dating a Sagittarius guy, you know that he’s not the type to beat around the bush. He also doesn’t appreciate anything grandiose or too romantic. He sees it as a waste of time.
That’s not to say he can’t be romantic, but he prefers words to flowery actions that can feel stripped of real emotion.
So, if you want to tell him that you love him, the best advice is just to go ahead and blurt it out! Be honest and tell him how you feel. It takes guts, but it’s worth it.
7-Why: He’s Direct And Honest
The reason why the Sag guy you’re dating will appreciate the simple act of you telling him you love him is because he shoots straight like an arrow. He’s a no-fuss kind of guy who appreciates the practical things in life much more than anything OTT. He’d rather have a heart-to-heart chat with you than go to an expensive holiday resort that’s focused on being romantic.
If you can get real and raw with him, he’ll give you the same in return.
At least you know that you can trust him because he’s so honest and upfront.
6-Capricorn: Tell Him You See A Future With Him
Capricorn is an astrological sign that loves with both his head and heart. Basically, he wants to feel that you’re not just showing him declarations of love but that you have your feet firmly planted on the ground. You should choose him for mental stimulation, not just because you have a spark with him, for instance.
Telling him how much you love him and that you see a future with him will go a long way to making Capricorn see that you’re genuine.
It might also help to give him some bullet points about why you love him, so he can see you’re sincere. Yup, you’ve got to do your homework!
5-Why: Capricorn Is Very Focused On The Future And Will See One With You If You’re Their Match
The thing about Capricorn is that he’s always got his eyes on the future. He wants to be with someone who he can commit to and trust, and if you can show him these qualities about yourself then he’ll open his heart to you
. He wants to be sure that you’re the right match for him — that’s where his calculating head comes in — so it doesn’t hurt to tell him why you’re so good for each other.
See, Capricorn sometimes treats romance in the same way as their business — it has to make sense on a practical level.
4-Aquarius: Plan A Romantic, Last-Minute Holiday
Aquarius is always on the move. He’s always finding a new adventure on which to embark and he’s full of life.
Chances are he’s already treated you to some of these adventures, so if you want to tell him you love him, now’s your opportunity to take him on a fun holiday.
Make sure it’s filled with lots of exciting activities since he loves trying new things. This sets a fun, romantic scene in which you can tell him what’s in your heart. He’ll love that you’ve chosen to do something different and bold.
3-Why: He Loves Surprises
As Nylon reports, nothing makes an Aquarius lose interest faster than a companion who lacks excitement. Yikes. The site goes on to say that Aquarius hates ruts and this can be fatal to their relationships.
“These personalities need to constantly introduce fun, adventure, and learning into their love lives,”
it states. So now you know the truth! Do something interesting, like planning an adventure holiday for you and your Aquarius love, and he’ll have a great time while seeing evidence of how interesting you make his life. Finish off with telling him how much you love him, and he’ll be all smiles.
2-Pisces: Tell Them Via Text
It might sounds strange to say you should tell your partner you love him via text, but it can work in some cases — such as if you’re dating a Pisces guy.
It’s not always easy to know what Pisces is thinking in his daydream-filled brain, and he sometimes battles with expressing his emotions.
Telling him how you feel in a well-written text is a great idea because he’ll be able to spend time reading and re-reading it to come to terms with this huge relationship milestone.
1-Why: He’s Introverted
As Thought Catalog reports, a person born under the sign of Pisces will be more likely to flirt with you online instead of in person.
This doesn’t mean that he doesn’t have feelings for you, it’s just that he withdraws in real-life situations,
the site explains. So, by telling your Pisces boyfriend you love him via text, this actually helps him because he doesn’t have to feel self-conscious or awkward in a face-to-face scenario. It’s also easier for you if you’re a shy person, which means you both win.
