I have to admit that I’ve heard of love languages, but I never thought a lot about them. Honestly, the concept sounded kind of gimmicky to me. In a nutshell, the idea is that there are five love languages as follows:
This love language thrives on gifts given in thoughtfulness. Giving the perfect gift lets a person with this love language to know you really know them.
This love language requires undivided attention. Giving your all without distractions is very important to a person with this love language.
This love language is all about being touchy-feely with their partner. Hugs, kisses, caresses, and even holding hands excites a person who speaks this love language.
Words of Affirmation
A person with this love language wants to hear compliments and loving positive words about himself/herself. This person needs to hear what you love about them and why.
Acts of Service
This love language is all about showing that you care by being thoughtful and helpful. A person with this love language feels happiest when their partner keeps commitments, helps with workloads, and serves others.
When I decided to focus on love for the month of February, I figured it wouldn’t hurt to look into my love language and my husband’s love language too! I took a quiz found here, where you receive a score in each love language, with 12 being the highest.
