Freddie Highmore and Emma Roberts star together as two teenage students in The Art of Getting By.  George (played by Highmore) is a slacking yet gifted artist who falls in love with his new friend Sally (Roberts), a popular yet complicated girl. George has never done a day of work in high school, even though he’s now made it to senior year.  Sally recognizes him as a kindred spirit and reaches out to form a deep friendship.  The Sundance film premiered under the title Homework.

What are ways to express to someone that you love them?

Cupid’s Advice:

Love can make you do things you wouldn’t normally do as a way to express your feelings.  Cupid has some tips:

1. Surprise!: Even if it’s just as simple as bringing your lover lunch while he or she is at work, a nice surprise is a great way to show affection toward someone you admire.

2. Out of the ordinary: If you’re in a relationship, try to do something spontaneous for your partner, such as cooking dinner or taking him or her to a favorite restaurant.  It may even be something as simple as letting him hold the remote control.

3. A work of art: If you’re artistically inclined, write a song or poem.  Perhaps even paint them a portrait showing your love for them.
