What's your love language?

The Five Love Languages book is a longtime favorite for relationships and pre-marital counseling. Have you read the book or figured out your love language? If so...

What is your love language? What is your fiance(e)'s love language?


What's your love language? 1


Words of Affirmation

Are you building each other up? If your love language is words of affirmation, verbal compliments are very important to you! Words hold real value, and it's important for you to hear verbal reminders of how much your partner loves and values you. While actions speak louder than words, if your partner's primary love language is words of affirmation - make sure you are verbally saying thank you, I love you, and voicing your appreciation.

Quality Time

To be clear - quality time does not include sitting on the couch together watching TV! Smiley tongue This means giving your partner your undivided attention. If your primary love language is quality time it means that you value simply spending time together - going on a walk, participating in an activity or going out to eat together (but not looking at your phone the whole time).

Receiving Gifts

Who doesn't love gifts? If your primary love language is receiving gifts, it means that you place a really high value on tangible reminders of your love. It does not mean that you love expensive or frequent gifts - but that you value physical symbols that say "Look, he was thinking of me" or "She remembered me".

Acts of Service

Do you best express your love by doing little things to help serve your fiance(e)? If your love language is acts of service, then it's all about those little actions that show you care! Emptying the dishwasher, taking the car in, running an errand to make your fiance's day easier, taking over cooking duty for the night - these are all ways that you can treat your partner each day by taking care of them and taking some of the work off their shoulders to show that you are thinking of them. This love language is definitely for those who believe that 'actions speak louder than words'.

Physical Touch

This one is pretty obvious Smiley shame , but it also includes all cuddling, hugs, holding hands, and all those light touches! Physical touch can be a very powerful way to communicate love.

    I would say that my love language is Words of Affirmation and Acts of Service. I have recently bought this book but have only read a few chapters so far.

    We actually did this in our pre-marital counselling sessions! It was one of our favourite sections. My love languages are acts of service and quality time. My husbands love languages are words of affirmation and acts of service!

    Physical touch and acts of service are big for me!!

    I also thought it was really interesting how they say you have a love language for how you feel loved / receive love, but also for how to tend to express love - I'm that person who says "I love you" 50+ times a day, so I definitely communicate my love through words of affirmation Smiley shame

    My husband's love language is definitely quality time, and a little bit receiving gifts. He doesn't care at all about material gifts, but early in our relationship I made a collage from ticket stubs of events we had attended together, and it's one of his favorite gifts ever. The pressure's on me now to thinking up something incredibly thoughtful Smiley tongue

    My FH and I have done the test a couple times throughout our relationship, and it's interesting how things have changed. The first time, we both scored highest in physical touch. The second time, we both scored highest in quality time.

    I've heard of this stuff but never looked into it.If I were to decide based on descriptions I think I would be in this order:

    Acts of Service, Physical Touch, Words of Affirmation, Quality Time and lastly Receiving Gifts.
