The Best Way To Say 'I Love You' Is To Kiss Her Without Warning

I love you

Go on & kiss the girl.

We like to fool ourselves into thinking love is complicated. That winning someone's heart requires a massive grand gesture with balloons, roses, chocolates, acoustic guitar and a declaration of your feelings in front of as many people as possible. 

Maybe some of us are capable of doing just that, and it works out great. But most of us don't have the time or money to pull the elaborate off (though you should totally try to if you can), thus can feel like total failures when it comes to love

It's not the size of the gesture that matters, it's the intention behind it. And if you really want to learn how to show her you love her, a simple surprise kiss can say "I love you" with more power than a hundred dozens of roses. 

I don't know about you, but I feel the most in love in unexpected moments. When I catch them reading their favorite book or holding a door for a stranger. When they make you laugh so hard you forget how to breathe. It's those moments where I get the urge to just run up and plant a big one on their face

When you have those instincts, you should 110 percent follow them through. 

Elaborate plans can be cute, and if that's part of your style than by all means do it. But don't miss out on equally important little things in sacrifice of something huge.

From personal experience, I remember all the moments a guy has just walked up and kissed me without warning. And it's made me feel more like I was in a Nicolas Sparks movie than any grand gesture ever did.

Sometimes, the really big gestures not done out of the best reasons and can feel really inauthentic. 

A lot guys follow certain romance rules because they think that's what all girls want. And while being showered with flowers and necklaces isn't the worst thing in the world, it means so much more when you do things that are straight from the heart.

So if you see your girlfriend or your wife and you're struck with the feeling of "Holy crap I love her," SHOW HER with a simple, unexpected kiss. I can almost guarantee she'll get the message.
