Kinda depends on the other person, doesn't it?

idk really. It's lots of little things; the communication that you build up with someone over time as you get closer. Just day-to-day moments and actions that come naturally if you care for someone.

For me personally it's never been something that I've said indirectly because I'm not a very performative person. If I want to say that, I'll be direct and just say it. I wouldn't have any particular way to show it because I'd have to think about it, and love to me has always been something you feel more than something you think. If I have to think about it, then I'm doing it for some other reason, and it's insincere. It's very difficult for me to be deliberately sincerely positive.

I don't initiate intimate physical interaction with anyone unless I completely trust them. If I hug you, then you know that I love you.
On a hiatus. Just chillin' now.

A gesture of kindness, like offering to help them, getting them something they like, etc.
But that being said, I do that for friends. Like friend love I guess? If it were a partner it would likely be physical affection.

By sharing all of my free time with them.

Simply put, I love humans.
Think about it humans are the most interesting creatures you could hope to find.
And when I said humans I meant all humans, not just you specifically, important detail.

One of my favorite quotes is from a play I did back in 2012 and 2018 called The Curious Savage by John Patrick -
People say I love you all the time - when they say, ‘take an umbrella, it’s raining,’ or ‘hurry back,’ or even ‘watch out, you’ll break your neck.’ There are hundreds of ways of wording it - you just have to listen for it, my dear.
The full scene is pretty great as well.
Fairy: Nothing. It's just no one has said they loved me this live-long day.
Mrs. Savage: Why, yes, they have, Fairy.
Fairy: Oh, no, they haven't, I've been waiting.
Mrs. Savage: I heard Florence say it at the dinner table.
Fairy: You did?
Florence: I did?
Mrs. Savage: She said, don't eat to fast, Fairy.
Fairy: Was she saying that she loved me?
Mrs. Savage: Of course. People say it when they say, "Take an umbrella, it's raining" or "Hurry back" or even "Watch out, you'll break your neck" There's hundreds of ways of wording it. You just have to listen for it my dear.
Fairy: My dentist told me I had perfect occlusion. Do you think he was telling me he loved me?
Mrs. Savage: What else? Why, the first day I met my husband, I was ridding horseback and he said I had a good seat. I knew immediately he loved me.
Fairy: Oh, thank you. I've been missing so much. Oh! My dentist loves me.

I tend to do things for them or show them how much I appreciate them and their existence. ┐( ̄ヘ ̄)┌

i'm not very good at expressing myself verbally esp when it comes to emotional stuff, but i tend to use food as a means lol. i like to cook or treat my partner to take out meals, or even just picking him up a small treat at the store bc i was thinking of him.
mama, we all go to hell.

I try to show my appreciation in other ways like buying food or doing stuff for them. It’s difficult as I’m in a ldr, but I try my best to make sure my boyfriend knows that he is loved and appreciated in ways that isn’t just me saying it outright.

Interesting topic. I've only truly loved one person but outside of telling her that I didn't really know how to express it. Eventually I tried to do so by spoiling her with gifts which was the wrong approach since she seemed to love and respect me less as a result, which led to our dynamic becoming almost transactional rather than a mutual bond like it was before.
