What's your love language?-

There’s a wonderful book called The 5 Love Languages written by Gary Chapman. It’s an easy read but its message is powerful. The idea is to learn what your own love language is and to share that with your partner. This way your partner will know what they can do to make you feel loved and vise versa. Isn’t that what we all want?

Here are the 5 love languages:

1. Words of Affirmation (compliments, I love you, etc.)

2. Quality Time

3. Receiving Gifts (It’s about the thoughtfulness and effort)

4. Acts of Service (bring him coffee, fix her broken appliance)

5. Physical Touch

What is your love language and do you know which one your partner would choose?

Does your relationship need some attention?
