For those of you who are habitual of using this phrase quite frequently, where it doesn’t lose meaning, it doesn’t have the same effect either. Even though there’s nothing wrong with it, it’d be great to mix it up a bit. Maybe tell them what you especially love about them. It’d show that you’ve actually made an effort rather than just saying ‘I love you’ out of routine. It could also prove to be stimulating for both of you.

You don’t just look good, you look absolutely amazing and I can’t seem to take my eyes off you translates more or less into you’re so effing hot! (Not just hot, superlative degree of hot!).
