#EngVocab: Other ways to say ‘Love’

Valentine’s Day is coming! It is very closely related to love. Unfortunately, sometimes, the word love is banal, overused, and mainstream.

Well, today is special session for those of you who want to profess your love in a different way: I will give you some other ways to say “Love”! Before I start, I want you to know some things about the words I will share to you.

  1. This word is probably the most similar to love because it means “love or respect someone deeply.”
  2. It means “a gentle feeling of fondness or liking.”
  3. An intense but temporary and short-lived feeling for someone.
  4. A love, loyalty, or enthusiasm for something or someone.
  5. Respect and warm approval to someone or something.
  6. This one is for you, poets. It means the state of being under a spell. A love spell, for this occasion.

So instead of using the very overused “I love you,” you could switch to:

  • “I adore you,”
  • “I feel affection for you,”
  • “I’m devoted to you,”
  • “I’m infatuated by you,”
  • “I admire you or,”
  • “I’m enchanted by you.”

Of course, there are so many ways to say I love you to someone. But words mean nothing without actions.
