LOVE LANGUAGE

A celebration of love

Love is an experience. How you express and receive love could be different.  You may be expressing affection to your significant other regularly, but do you truly take the time to make sure you’re communicating it the way your partner wants to receive it? A love language is a way you express affection for people you love and the way you want them to express affection for you. Not everyone communicates love in the same way, and likewise, people have different ways they prefer to receive love. We all may relate to most of these languages, but each of us has one that speaks to us the most. Discovering your and your partner’s primary love language and speaking that language regularly may create a better understanding of each other’s needs and support each other’s growth. While Valentine’s Day is one day a year, seek to express love every day in a way your partner’s love language is and appreciate them with what they value the most.

  • Physical touch

People with physical touch as their love language enjoy physical intimacy and touch can be incredibly affirming and serve as a powerful emotional connector for people with this love language. Many people who communicate their appreciation through this language, when they consent to it, feel appreciated when they are hugged, kissed, cuddled, and showing physical affection to them often makes them happy. While other love languages can be hard to show this one is refreshingly straightforward, easy to satisfy, and doesn’t involve a lot of planning, exertion, or money. It is as easy as reaching out for their hand while watching or wrapping your arms on their back as they cook.

  • Words of affirmation

If you like hearing your partner say “I love you” or “I miss you” these words are meaningful and special for you to hear. Again and again. Then this is your love language, and you value verbal acknowledgment of affection, including frequent compliments, words of appreciation, verbal encouragement, and often frequent digital communication like texting and social encouragement will always make you smile. If this is your partner’s love language, then you should know that details matter to them, and paying attention to the specific things and complimenting them will help to make them feel cherished.

  • Gifts

This is a visual symbol of love. People with this style recognize and value the thoughts that are put in the gift-giving process; through careful reflection, the deliberate choosing of objects to represent the relationship, and the emotional benefits from receiving the present. The key is giving meaningful gifts, things that matter to them and reflect their values not necessarily yours. You can always commemorate special days like birthdays, holidays, or anniversaries and remind them of your commitment to them.

  • Acts of service

This love language is for people who believe that actions speak louder than words. Unlike those who prefer gifts and love to hear how much they’re cared for, people on this list like to be shown how they’re appreciated. Doing smaller and bigger chores to make their lives easier or more comfortable is highly cherished. It always means a lot when someone follows through on something especially if they were paying attention and stepped in to help. With this love language, if you’re feeling stressed or tired, it would be nice for your partner to help you with the dishes and this will elevate your mood.

  • Quality time

This love language is all about undivided attention to that one person you love, without the distraction of television or phone. They have a strong desire to actively spend time with their loved ones, having meaningful conversations or sharing recreational activities. They particularly love when active listening, eye contact, and full presence are prioritized.

Love language is a useful tool to improve how we communicate and express ourselves to each other. Through thoughtfulness and intention, you can elevate your relationships.
