As kids, we learn the language to communicate with family and friends. As adults, we take on a new kind of language to express our love. Each person is unique, and their love is always special. If you have never heard about love languages and what they are, take a look at the information below before proceeding to the Love Language quiz. You can also go there with a blank mind on the topic and no prejudice and later return to read more about the type of love language you have.
You may not have heard about love languages because this is a relatively new concept. It is not something with centuries of theory and research piled up to have tons of basis. This concept was introduced in 1992 by the renowned couple therapist Gary Chapman. After years of personal research, Chapman distinguished five types of love language that cover all couples' studies. In the last 30 years, the concept of these languages remains the same with no additional inclusions. So, what are those five love languages exactly?
This love language is based on the physical display of love and affection. People who rule this love language express their feelings through hugs, kisses, holding hands, etc. For them, a touch will say more than some pretty words. In return, they thrive on physical contact as well. If you are in a relationship with such a person, always opt for physical signs of love.
That's a pretty self-explanatory love language as well. If you are this type, you value the quality time spent with your partner and require undivided attention when doing something together. It's easy to notice if this is somebody's love language as they want to spend every minute of every day with you. And they don't like to be apart with their s.o. for an extended period of time. As you've probably already guessed, long-distance relationships are not for them.
Words of Affirmation
If you think that only ladies love to hear loving words, you are mistaken. This is a relatively common love language, no matter what gender you are. Such people thrive on the kind of loving words. Though they know that a person loves them, they need to hear it often to feel those butterflies! In return, they are eloquent and open about their feelings as well. They are not afraid to confess first.
This is not the love language of materialistic and fake people. There is nothing terrible in this love language at all! You don't need to buy them the most expensive presents to show how much you value them. If this is your language, you probably don't expect anything luxurious. You appreciate the thought better. Nothing small but meaningful would do. The gift has to show that a person thinks of you and loves you.
Acts of Service
This may be a trickier one to notice, but it is quite expected anyway. This love language is for people who value the help and support they get from their partners. They will do something for you, and you can do something for them to show your love (like washing the dishes or dusting even!) You may also like his BTS bias quiz to learn who is your perfect man.
