Is your love getting lost in translation? Maybe, that’s because you and your partner don’t speak the same language: the love language.
Partners fight; it’s inevitable. Sometimes it feels like you’re fundamentally misunderstanding your partner and there is no end in sight. This might be because you’ve never had the “Love Languages” conversation.
What is the love languages conversation, you ask? Let’s break it down.
The Love Languages test breaks down how you express your love, and how you want to be loved. You are most likely to give and receive a combination of all the love languages, but there will be ones that stand out more than others. It’s also possible that your number one love language changes over time.
There are 5 main love languages; Quality Time, Words of Affirmation, Receiving Gifts, Acts of Service and Physical Touch. Everyone has a dominating love language so it’s important to know who in your life resonates with what. This ensures that you have a better understanding as to why they react the way they do – in every situation!
We suggest taking the quiz every so often to familiarize yourself with what your priorities are. You can even forward it to your loved ones so they can get a better understanding of you and themselves. As Gary Chapman put it in “The 5 Love Languages, The Secret of Love that Lasts,” “we must be willing to learn our spouses’ primary love language if we are to be effective communicators of love.”
Knowing the love language of those you surround yourself with will help you strengthen your bond and relationship with one another by allowing you to communicate your needs and feel more appreciated, while also educating yourself about theirs.
