Have you looked at "the Five Love Languages?" Maybe you could open up a discussion on the book sometime and see how to non-verbally say I love you. I am a "words of affirmation" type and tend to need to say it and hear it to feel it. Others are different and it really helps to know what partners are... have a look at a search on line on the book. Sorry. I can't remember the author off the top of my head. Could help though.
Anyone want to be friends on Facebook?
