"Of the countless ways we can show love to one another, five key categories, or five love languages, proved to be universal and comprehensive—everyone has a love language, and we all identify primarily with one of the five love languages: Words of Affirmation, Quality Time, Receiving Gifts, Acts of Service, and Physical Touch."
The website has a quiz you can take to find out which love language you speak and the definition of your love language. The highest number in a particular section determines what type of love language you speak. My love language for instance, is equal among three different types because I scored 9, 9, and 9 in three areas making 9 the high score. I thought it was quite interesting because It was spot on. Seriously, it fits me like a glove. My love language is Words of Affirmation, Physical Touch, and Quality Time. All of these are equally important to me.
Words of Affirmation: Actions don't always speak louder than words if this is your love language. Unsolicited compliments mean the world to you. Hearing the words, "I love you" are important-hearing the reasons behind that love sens your spirits skyward. Insults can leave you shattered and are not easily forgotten.
Physical Touch: This language isn’t all about the bedroom. A person whose primary language is Physical Touch is, not surprisingly, very touchy. Hugs, pats on the back, holding hands, and thoughtful touches on the arm, shoulder, or face—they can all be ways to show excitement, concern, care, and love. Physical presence and accessibility are crucial, while neglect or abuse can be unforgivable and destructive
Quality Time: In the vernacular of Quality Time, nothing says, “I love you,” like full, undivided attention. Being there for this type of person is critical, but really being there—with the TV off, fork and knife down, and all chores and tasks on standby—makes your significant other feel truly special and loved. Distractions, postponed dates, or the failure to listen can be especially hurtful.
Yes, my language is three types rolled into one. Hmmm, I wonder if this makes me more difficult to be in a relationship with? I do get upset very easily if I feel ignored or left hanging for a period of time.
