There are so many ways to show someone you love them.

You know that old saying "actions speak louder than words?" Well ... it's TRUE! Especially when it comes to your relationships.

In relationships, it's important to hear "I love you" — but it's also essential to show your partner you love them with your actions. Words of affirmation are only just the beginning when it comes to love. Whether you like to plan for your future together, talk more intimately, or spend all your free time together, showing your partner that you love them is what will keep the relationship going. 

The thing is, we each have a unique way of going about showing someone we love them, and it can be traced back to your Myers Briggs personality type. The Myers-Briggs personality test was developed in the 1900s based on the work of Carl Jung. In total there are 16 personality types that help explain who you really are.
