We all have different ‘love languages’ – different ways in which we feel most loved by our partner.
(There are short quizzes you can do online to establish your primary love language(s))
There are 5 Love Languages, as defined by Gary Chapman over 25 years ago. They are:
- Words of affirmation
- Acts of service
- Quality time
- Physical touch
You don’t need to have the same love language as your partner to have a great relationship, but it’s a great help to know what your love languages are, so that you can show appreciation in the way they best understand, and build deeper connection and intimacy.
For example, my primary love language is Quality Time, whereas for my husband, James, it’s Acts of Service.
James is always doing stuff for me. He demonstrates his love by helping me, cooking, tidying up, putting fuel in the car. He just wants to help me and I really appreciate that. But while I intellectually know that I’m loved by him, I don’t feel it through acts of service. I feel love through quality time.
When James stops and does nothing and simply spends time with me, listens to me, sits with me, talks to me or we walk hand in hand, that’s when I feel most loved.
Learning about each other’s love languages is an important part of the journey as it helps improve communication and reduces arguments and resentment.
I highly recommend the work by Gary Chapman on this topic.
