    Love Language

    Advertisements
    We were talking at work (and I've heard this at church, too) that people have different "love languages". Basically, it's the things that make you feel the most loved by another person. They say that it is rarely the same for two couples, which means that the way I show love could mean absolutely nothing to my SO because he shows love a different way.


    Words of Affirmation
    This is when you say how nice your spouse looks, or how great the dinner tasted. These words will also build your mate's self image and confidence.
    Quality Time
    Some spouses believe that being together, doing things together and focusing in on one another is the best way to show love. If this is your partner's love language, turn off the TV now and then and give one another some undivided attention.
    Gifts
    It is universal in human cultures to give gifts. They don't have to be expensive to send a powerful message of love. Spouses who forget a birthday or anniversary or who never give gifts to someone who truly enjoys gift giving will find themselves with a spouse who feels neglected and unloved.
    Acts of Service
    Discovering how you can best do something for your spouse will require time and creativity. These acts of service like vacuuming, hanging a bird feeder, planting a garden, etc., need to be done with joy in order to be perceived as a gift of love.
    Physical Touch
    Sometimes just stroking your spouse's back, holding hands, or a peck on the cheek will fulfill this need.


    DB and I lucked out, we're both Quality Time people (but I do appreciate the others too ).

    So, what is yours and your SO's??
    There is no medicine like hope, no incentive so great, and no tonic so powerful
    as expectation of something better tomorrow.

    If I had to pick from that list, mine would be Acts of Service and his would be Physical Touch. But I don't buy into this particular relationship theory, personally. I don't think there's anything wrong with it, it just doesn't sum us up very well. I know it's great for a lot of people though.

    i am definately a physical touch type of person. always rubbing his neck or scratching his back. and i think he would most likely be in the words of affirmation category. he always compliments my dinner or says im pretty. very interesting post. fun to think about!

    yeah, i think you can. I honestly think I fit into a lot of them, but I picked the one I like the MOST. But I feel loved with all of these.
