- “ What type of Love Language does your Special Someone has?”
Over the weekend, I went to the book store and came upon this interesting book written by Gary Chapman. The book writes about the importance of being able to express love to your special one in a way that he or she can understand. He calls this communication the ‘Love Language’.
There are five ‘Love Language’ and let me share with all of you:
1) Words of Affirmation
Here, the things that your partner SAYS matters. You feel most loved and appreciated when your special someone express how grateful and thankful they are when you do things for them. Words of encouragement, acknowledgment and recognition of your efforts certainly mean more than any other things that your partner do!
2) Acts of Service
For those who has this Love Language, what your special someone DO for you is utmost importance. You feel most loved when your special someone lends his helping hand for you. It can be a simple act of making a cup of drink, preparing the bath, a massage or even helping out on the household chores for you!
3) Receiving Gifts
You feel most loved when your special someone gives you gifts or other tangible goods to express their love for you. It may be something small or inexpensive form of gifts but it is the thoughts and efforts behind the gifts that your partner put in whilst preparing that touches you.
4) Quality Time
You feel loved when your special someone gives you full, undivided attention and spend time alone with you. Here, your partner’s presence as in ‘being really there’ would be the best form of expression of their love to you.
5) Physical Touch
You feel most loved when your special someone expresses their love through affectionate physical touch. Your definition of love language would be plentiful of hugs, pats on the back, holding hands, and other thoughtful touches.
So guys, try to identify what Love Language does your partner has. By doing so, we can ‘communicate’ effectively with our special one and the relationship would significantly improve.
After all, these actions are not difficult to do – it is just a simple thing that you SAY or DO to make that special someone feel loved and appreciated, so why not start today?? 😉
