Love, the verb
Love is a verb. It is a verb that takes work. One chooses to behave in loving ways: listen, empathize, show appreciation, be attentive, be giving, give more compliments and less criticisms, do the little things that you already know make the other person happy, anticipate needs, show affection, remember the things that are important and the things that are painful to the other person.
Do it well, and the recipient feels loved. But you have to choose to be loving. Do the verb that results in the feeling.
Do you act lovingly everyday? Did you today? Will you tomorrow? It’s a choice.
Smile. Be happy.
