Everyone has their own understanding of love and they express it in their own special way. Sometimes, it is evident and easily understood while on many occasions it is even difficult to recognize the expression. Explicitly saying and hearing ‘I love you’ can be beautiful, yes. But there are people who do not believe in the verbal expression of love or those who are not comfortable doing it. In simple words, it is possible that different people have different love languages. And that’s okay.
