There Are 5 Love Languages, Which One Are You?
There are many ways to show your partner you love them. Have you ever thought if you were speaking a foreign love language to them? Different people with different personalities express love in different ways and in return desire to be loved a certain way. The different love languages are: Words of Affirmation, Acts of Service, Receiving Gifts, Quality Time, and Physical Touch. Each individual has at least one language that they prefer above the other. I feel like we all want to strengthen and improve our relationships. If it's good why not bring it to the next level of awesomeness.
When I started dating my husband I realized we had a extremely different ways of communicating our love to each other. It was because we grew up differently, different backgrounds, different parents and showed love differently. For instance, for me I feel love by words of affirmation (Example: I love you because..., I am thankful for... and so on) and for my husband it's acts of service ( by making him dinner, rubbing his feet, and so on). We were different. It wasn't a bad thing, but after ready the book "The 5 Love Languages: The Secret to Love that Lasts" by Gary Chapman things really started to make more sense and I had a whole different level of appreciation for him. It was an eye opener for sure.
