Are There Words Stronger Than Love?
Maybe you thought you had experienced love in past relationships, but when you met your current partner, you realized that you had never felt love like this before. You have told your partner you love them, but you feel more for them than that and you want to express to them exactly how you feel inside toward them.
Love is a powerful word and there is no phrase more beautiful to hear than “I love you” but what if you want to say something more that better expresses your individual situation. No love is the same and every relationship is completely different, so you want to say something that means more to both of you. The word love often means different things to different people.
If you desire to express to your partner just how they make you feel, there are alternative ways to say that you love them. Think about your individual situation, how your partner makes you feel when you are alone and how he has changed your life. Expressing these intimate and unique things will show your partner how much you really love them.
1. “I am always here for you”
If you are looking for an alternative way to express your love for someone, tell them that you are always here for them, no matter what happens in their life. Telling someone that you will always be by their side through thick and thin is one of the purest expressions of love.
2. “I have never felt love like this before”
While you may have previously said “I love you,” in past relationships, you have never felt love like you do for your present partner before. Express this to your partner and let them know that you have never felt a love so pure and deep.
3. “You make me feel complete”
Telling your partner that they complete you is one of the most expressive ways to tell them how much you love them and how much they really mean to you. Letting them know that you believe that your life is complete with them is a strong expression of love.
4. “I am yours”
If you desire to let your partner know that you love them and are completely committed to them, always then this phrase is perfect. When you love someone truly, you give a part of yourself to them and this is one of the truest expressions of deep love.

Let your loved ones know just how much they mean to you and how special they are to you. You have never felt this way towards anyone else before so let them know how they make you feel. Telling your partner how precious and cherished they are is a true expression of deep love.
8. “Will you marry me?”
What better way to express your deep love for someone than to ask whether they will spend the rest of their days with you. However, make sure that you are ready for this step before you propose the question. If you see yourself with this person forever, then why not make it official?

15. “You mean everything to me”

20. “I hope to spend the rest of my days with you”
Committing to spending the rest of your days with someone is a stronger expression of your feelings than to just tell them that you love them. Show them that you never desire to be without them and you cannot imagine your future with anyone else but them. If you can really see yourself spending the rest of your time with this individual, tell them so.
21. “We are meant to be together”
If you are looking for ways to tell your partner just how much your relationship and your love really mean to you, tell them that you truly believe that you are meant to be together. If you believe in soulmates, tell your partner that you believe you were led to one another by fate. This is something that will express your love stronger than saying “I love you.”
22. “I adore you”
Tell your partner “I adore you” if you are looking for words other than “I love you.” Even if you think that saying you love someone is enough, when you have been in a relationship for a long time, it is a good idea to express your love in different words, so that your partner still knows you really mean it.
23. “You are my soulmate”
If you believe in soulmates, using the words “you are my soulmate” will show your partner just how much you care for them. You cannot imagine ever being with anyone else and you believe that you were led toward one another by fate. Express your love in these spiritual words if you are looking to express your deep love.
24. “I’ll always pick you”

25. “You are the one”
Tell your partner that they are your true love and you have never felt like this for anyone else before. Show your partner just how much they mean to you by expressing your deep and emotional love for them in these true and authentic words.
Love is one of the most powerful emotions that anyone may experience in life and it can lead to you doing things that you never thought you would do. You may think that you would do anything for the person that you are in love with. However, it is likely that the emotion of fear is higher than love and would likely drive anyone to do almost anything if strong enough.
Some people may believe that love is the most powerful thing that anyone will ever experience in their life. However, love means different things to different people and it is often the case that there are varying degrees of love. The feeling of gratitude is often considered to be more powerful than love as it knows no bounds, whereas love is often limited.
For many people, to hear the words “I love you” is one of the most beautiful things in the world and it does express pure feelings of love, for other people the words have been misused in the past. If you have told someone in the past that you loved them and later realized that that wasn’t true, tell your present partner and the love of your life that “I’m all yours.”
If you are looking for alternative ways to express your love for your partner tell them that you are always there for them, that they complete you or that they are the love of your life. Sometimes the words “I love you,” can be overused and misused, looking for other words to express your feelings can let your partner know how deep your feelings for them run.
To express your love in words is to open yourself up to your partner. Tell them things about yourself that you have never told anyone else before, open them up to the deeper emotions and feelings inside of you that you have previously kept hidden. Speaking openly and honestly in this way to your partner will express your deep and undying love in words.
To Sum Up…
The words “I love you” are often misused and said too quickly in relationships. People often say that they love their partner when they are not sure that that is in fact true. Thus, you may desire to express your deep and true love for your other half in a different way. Open yourself up to your partner and express your innermost feelings and emotions vulnerably.
