Whoever thought you could only express love with flowers and romantic candlelit dinners was completely wrong. There are so many other ways one can make their significant other feel loved and the Twitter thread created by writer Hattie Gladwell proves it. She asked "What's one thing your partner does that’s not necessarily romantic but makes you love them a bit more" and people flooded the timeline with responses (some are quite unexpected!). Scroll down below to read them!

I love this! My husband is the very same way! In addition, I suffer social anxiety and whenever he recognizes that I am anxious, he looks for the nearest bit of water, be it a lake, a fountain, or even our shower and leads me to it... He is amazing to me.

My mom did that to me when I was a kid. When I was in bed crying, she put a cat, a dog or a bunny in bed with me and that always made me stop crying. You can't be sad with a fluffy animal in your arms.

Not all ladies like getting pictures of cucumbers. This must be real love.

My husband and I sleep on separate twin beds so we don't wake each other up when we roll over at night. But last year I had hernia surgery. The doctor told us to make sure everything was sterile at home. I worked the Saturday before my surgery and my husband told me he was going to get the house thoroughly cleaned to prep for surgery. When I got home though, I found he'd moved his bed out into the living room and positioned my in the center of the room, all with clean sheets and linens. I asked why he did that. He said "You will be tired and mobility challenged when you get home. I wanted you to be able to get out of bed on whatever side you needed and I want you to be able to get some good sleep without me snoring in your ear all night. And if you want to come out and watch TV in the living room, you'll have my bed to lay on." I just looked at him and tackled him with a hug!

I had a friend who was like this. I had a really bad, long panic attack once, and I came into our cabin crying and scared. She held me for 30 minutes straight, even though I was dripping wet and all gross. I am forever thankful she has been in my life these past few years. Love you girlfriend!

Awwww! She put off work to support your hobby or maybe asked her assistant to do it, but regardless, you were on her mind. :))

Hope and pray you're all better! My mom had half of her lung removed, so I have a semblance of some of what you're going through. I'm very happy you have someone special who loves you!

Mine knew I was worried about my Sister taking care of my Dad by herself (He has late stage dementia.) She is 3000 miles away. I told her if she needed help, I could come up for a few weeks to let her get caught up on important paperwork/appointments as well as let her get some sleep. She paid for the ticket and I went and helped. Then when I returned, my husband knew I'd be exhausted, not only from taking care of someone that could not take care of themselves, but from the emotional stress of seeing the person that was my Dad gone. He comforted me and let me have my own space for the first few days back, taking my son out so I could have the house to myself. My sister thanked me for helping. I told her that my husband needed the thanks because he helped me so I could help her....

I like that one, because even a mommy is just a woman. And should find at least a little time for herself- even if the baby is still so young

Our house fell behind in cleaning because of my back issues. A few months ago my husband took a "vacation" from work for about a week. I thought he would want to take off and go someplace out of town. Instead he spent the entire vacation getting the house cleaned and caught up on projects so that I could easily manage it from there on out. His comment on the first day "You tell me what you want me to do and I'll do it." I seriously doubt that I deserve this man.... But I'm glad he's here.

Mine knows I like thunderstorms. He also knows that thunderstorms calm me to the point of helping me fall asleep. So when they come through our area at night, he will make sure I'm all set up in bed and then turn off all the lights so that I can watch the lightening flash and hear the thunder rumble as a nod off.
