When you're in a relationship, hearing the words 'I love you' has to be one of the most warming and amazing things, no matter how many times it's said. 

Someone loves you for you, and it makes everything feel right in the world.

But it turns out that there is another phrase that couples believe means more to them, and it's all to do with being there for that special someone. 

A relationship expert has suggested that there could be another phrase which will help us connect more and reach out when we're in a tiff, and that is:

"How can I help?"

Considering many people don't ask for help, because they feel it can be a burden on the other, it's important to have open communication and support for your loved one.

Everyone should know how touching it is when someone actually cares enough to offer their help, no matter the situation.

Psychologist Jane Greer has opened up on the subject, saying, "A lot of times, we will look to help by offering advice, which typically is the last thing someone wants to hear or will find helpful.

"How can I help?" conveys five important things: You're tuned in to your partner, aware of what they're going through, considering their feelings and needs, empathetic to their situation, and looking to help out on a supportive, concrete level."

Just like when the little things we say like, 'Drive Safely', this question is an extension of that love we have for our significant other.

To make things work, you've got to be there for each other. So never forget the all important questions and to tell them you love them every gosh darn day.
