Let’s first preface this with everyone has a little bit of all the Love Languages. Once you know your main Love Language, it is easier for your partner to know how you want to receive love. My partner’s main Love Language is Words of Affirmation, this helps me in knowing sometimes he needs to hear how much I appreciate him or how telling him he did something well is how he needs to feel loved.
I took this fun free quiz from 5lovelanguages.com and here are my results:
One or two may be more prominent than others. My top Love Languages are Acts of Service & Physical Touch. While Words of Affirmation and Quality Time are also important to me, they aren’t my dominant Love Language. I am also more of a Gift Giver, not so much of a Gift Receiver.
Here are the breakdowns of each Love Language:
Words of Affirmation
Words of affirmation are about expressing affection through spoken words, praise, or appreciation. If this is your love language, you enjoy kind words and encouragement.
Love and affection are expressed through undivided attention. This means making eye contact, putting down your tablet or phone, and actively listening to your partner.
A person feels loved through physical affection such as holding hands, touching the arm, or giving a massage at the end of the day.
Acts of Service
A person feels loved and appreciated when someone does something nice for them, such as doing household chores they dislike, putting gas in the car, or in my case, building things for me.
This Love Language is not only the gift itself but also the time and effort put into the gift. It doesn’t have to be something expensive or large, it is more of the care going into it.
What are your Love Languages? Do you believe this is a good way to learn how to love your significant other?
There are also quizzes to learn your children’s Love Languages which I think is also super important.
