Have you ever heard of the cliche that said actions speak louder than words? It may be an overused phrase, but there's a reason for that: it's true.

Sure, hearing the words "I love you" sounds great, but what are empty promises? Here are some ways to tell someone you love them without actually saying it:

Pay attention -- Nothing says you care like paying attention to what your partner says or does. Being actively involved in his or her life pays. You may not have to be there 24/7 but knowing that you're going to be there when your partner needs you makes all the difference in the world.

Reach out -- All couples fight. However, this does not mean that you love each other less. Forget your pride. Relationships tend to work better if both of you work on it, so don't quit on each other. When your partner knows that you're going to be there even in moments when neither of you are at your best, there's no doubt that love is present in the relationship.

Do something helpful. Sure, you and your partner have established the chores and roles in your home, but sometimes, extra help is appreciated. For instance, helping with the dishes even though you don't really like washing them or putting in that load of laundry because your partner is tired from work can work wonders in telling your partner how much you love and appreciate them.

Spend time with each other -- and not just for the sake of it. Even when you're busy, make sure that you put in some quality time with your partner. That night out with the boys or that extra work in the office can wait: make sure you and your partner prioritize each other and make time for one another in your lives.

Be the best parents you can be to your kids -- There is nothing more beautiful than the gift of a child. Your guidance and strength in child rearing will tell your partner how much your entire family means to you, which is worth more than all the "I love yous" in the world.

Also, adding hugs and kisses won't hurt.

How do you tell your partner and your family you love them without actually saying the three words?
