SexIs - Loving Expressions

Love is many things - it is both a noun and a verb. It is something you can give, it is something you can take and above all it is something you can cherish and reflect on when the chips are down.

We've explored a few different ways to show or express love and desire through fantasy and gestures, both small and grand. We haven't spoken on the evolution of expressions of love until today.

AHubbyof2SexualMinds talks about the evolution of love and the expressions that go with it in this article on SexIs, titled Loving Expressions. While he finds himself wanting to do grand gestures for his wife as a way to show how much he cares for and loves her, he also realizes it's the small, seemingly insignificant things that make the most impact on her day. Things like packing her lunch for work or keeping the kids entertained while she relaxes before bed. At the end of the day, those are things you will remember when times get tough.

Do you feel like your expressions of love have evolved throughout your relationship? Do you wish you still did some of the things you used to do or are you quite thrilled with how it all worked out? (Time periods are subjective.)

Overall...
I think it's only natural for some things to fall by the wayside and for others to take their place.

I think it really depends on the people involved. To some people it might be a huge deal, others not so much.

I think when little gestures like the article talks about fall to the wayside it's a sign of trouble in the relationship.

We have been together for 23 years, we always look for the "Little things" to do for each other. Big things are great but often we just don't have the means to do them, so that leaves the little things. Honestly, I think the small things add up to much more than big things at the end of the day. Furthermore, I remember those little things more vividly. If she ever stops doing them, I surely will get worried.

And yes, yes I am a Llama.

I've been married for 8 1/2 years and now that we have young kids I sometimes let small things that I used to do slip. Nothing is wrong with our relationship, but I have a million other things to do. For example, when we were first married, I used to slip love letters in his lunch box.

I've been married for 23 years and we have changed a little but not much we still find the time to spend with one another just like we did before we had a family

We've been together for almost 2 years and we seemed to have stopped doing all the 'big' things that you do during the honeymoon period but we're both fine with that. I think we'd both worry if the other one stopeed doing all the little things, that'd be the signs of trouble for us

I'm in a pretty young relationship currently, but in the past, though the relationship evolves, I have still tried to make a conscious effort to do little things to show I care and to keep the romance alive.

2 years and things have changed, but I have to say it has been positive changes for the both of us. Him and his drinking have been cut down and me and my selfishness has been brought to a halt. We have been very good influences on each other.

We've been married for 10 years and things just seem to be changing for the better every day. The little things are what matters and I would definitely think something was up with him if he ever stopped doing them. Honestly he'd probably think the same if I stopped doing little things for him too so I try to keep it up as much as possible because I can see this marriage lasting until one of us passes away.

In a complicated relationship at the moment. Things are getting exponentially better though.

We have been together for 7 years now and after going through a relationship crisis things are getting much better, it's the small little things that express love the most, like when he packs my lunch for me before I go to work or makes me a cup of coffee, picks up a bag of chocolate at the grocery store because he knows how much I like it. For him he loves it when I pick up a case of his favorite beer when I see the fridge is getting low so he has it when he gets off work
