Her love is multi-sided. She depends more on what he says than what he does and more on what she does than what she says. Confusing, but she likes it that way. It expands her flexibility for fulfilling her dreams with him.
To her, his words speak more loudly than his actions. Quite the opposite of his view.
It’s not that she does not appreciate his actions, just that she appreciates his words more, if they are complimentary, affectionate, appreciative. That’s her reason for being with him, to receive such words as confirmation that their future is on track.
