Welcome back beautiful people! So the other day on my way into work I was listening to the Yolanda Adam’s morning show and she began an interesting discussion about love and love languages. She went into how there are 3 things you sholuld ask yourself before getting into a relationship 1. How often do I express my love or appreciation to others? 2.In what way do I express my love and appreciation to others? And lastly, what would make me happeist the most? These three questions can be a good indicator for how and why things workout or don’t.
The 5 Love Languages is a book written by Dr. Gary Chapman it was actually written in the early 90s..some of you may have read it already and others may not have. But most of the information still holds true today. In this book, he helps people to understand what they need from their mate and what they need to give to their mate. I thought this would be a great conversation to have with your partner, if you may not have already done so.
The 5 Love Languages
Words of Affirmation: Do you need to hear, “I love you” or “I appreciate you.” This means you need to hear acknowledgment from your partner.
Acts Of Service: Cooking, Cleaning, Washing the Car or Taking the trash out.
Receiving Gifts: Gifts are often an expression of love. Does your significant other play golf..maybe they would love a new pair of gold clubs. Sending flowers may be something you need from your mate. It doesn’t matter the price but it’s often the thought that counts.
Quality Time: This one might be a biggie for alot of people, especially in our busy lives with work and other responsibilities. Taking time to spend with each other. It can be just sitting around eating pizza and drinking wine or a romantic getaway.
Physical Touch: This is self explanatory. Do you need a kisses or hugs? Or maybe holding hands. This is another way some people love to communicate.
Do you know your love language? If not, if you visit http://www.5lovelanguages.com/ there is an interactive quiz you can take to discover it. I suggest both you and partner taking it and discussing it together. You can thank me later 🙂
