You never want to feel unsatiated in your relationship. And you never want your partner not to feel your love. You can clear up any confusion by knowing how each of you give and accept love. Once you know discover which love language is your dominant one, you’ll better understand how you give love to others – and moreover, the best way for someone to show you their love. You also need to figure out your partner’s love language so you can ensure you’re making them feel loved.
So what are these languages of love we speak of? They’re broken down into five languages: Words of Affirmation, Physical Touch, Acts of Service, Quality Time, and Gift Giving.
- Words of Affirmation
Do you feel most loved when your partner gives you a compliment? Do you need verbal reassurances of their love? Do you need your partner to verbally build you up? Do you blush and get giddy inside when your partner tells you how sharp you look in your new suit or when your guy tells you how gorgeous you look in your new sexy dress? Do you love when they tell you that they can always count on you to be there? Or how about when they tell you they love how you always make them laugh?
- Physical Touch
Do you love physical affection from your partner? Does cuddling make you feel like you’re in the safest, most loving place in the world? Does a hug from behind make all your worries and doubts disappear? Love touches are essential to a relationship, but sometimes we crave them more because that’s what makes us feel loved. From holding hands, kissing, caressing, snuggling, and even being playful, these physical touches express our love for one another.
- Acts of Service
Many men and women show their love for one another through acts of service. Acts of service often include cooking, doing dishes, cleaning the house, doing laundry, changing the baby’s diaper, taking out the trash, running errands, changing the oil in the car, and fixing things around the house. These are all ways we show we love and care for one another.
- Quality Time
No relationship can survive without adequate quality time together. But for many, it’s the best way to show and receive love. Do you enjoy spending quality time with your partner without any interruptions or distractions? Do you require more than normal in order to feel loved? Do you prefer quality time together over compliments, I love yous, physical touch, and acts of service?
- Gift Giving
Gift giving is another way we show our love for people in our loves. Gifts are visible symbols of love, and some people like giving and receiving gifts more than others. Some people are naturally great at picking and giving gifts, while others clam up and get nervous about the gift giving/receiving process. But a gift is something you can hold, look at, and display – it’s something that serves as a reminder that the giver was thinking of you when they picked it out.
Everyone has the need to feel loved, and that’s why it’s so important to know your love language, as well as your partner’s. You each need to be able to open up and share what makes you feel loved by one another. This way you can ensure you’re each speaking the other’s love language and one partner doesn’t have their need for love unfulfilled. If your partner feels loved when you give them confidence-building compliments, praise, or just encouragement and support, you need to ensure you’re making them feel loved, especially if your natural way of showing love is through gift giving or one of the other love languages. And vice versa. Discover your love languages and keep the love alive and thriving together.
