Sounding loving and caring

Tip 1: Use affectionate words

In order to sound loving and caring, we can use affectionate terms when speaking to a significant other or to a very young child.

However, you should be careful with using these terms as they might sound awkward to certain people.

Honey 

Darling 

Dear

Sweetheart

Sweetie

Sugar

Baby

Tip 2: show that you care

Show that you care

- by asking if there’s anything you could do to help,

Would you like me to get/do anything for you?

Is there anything that I can do for you? 

What can I do to help? Can I help you?

Do you want to talk? 

Do you want to tell me about it?

Tell me all about it. 

- by using expressions that shows confirmation or empathy.

Oh, no! / Oh, really! / Wow!

I understand what you’re going through. 

I completely understand what you’re saying.

Let’s listen to a few dialogues to see how to best use the expressions we’ve learned and apply them in everyday situations.

A: Sure, anything to help.

B: Thanks, you are such a good friend.

Dialogue 2

A: Oh no, that’s terrible.

B: It’s not fair. It’s the first time I have actually done homework at work and I managed to get caught.

A: I’m sorry darling. I understand what you’re going through. Here let me give you a hug. That will help you feel better.
