We all want to feel loved. But, we receive love differently. Perhaps physical affection and quality time carry the most meaning for you. Take this test to discover your primary love language, what it means, and how you can use it to better connect with your loved ones.
Words of Affirmation – Your self-image and confidence are built through compliments and verbal praise. To feel encouraged, you require the other person to empathize and see the world from your perspective. You feel loved when people know what is important to you. Tone of voice is very important.
Quality Time – Being together, doing things together and focusing in on one another is the best way to show love. If this is your love language, you want your love, friend or family to give you undivided attention and do meaningful activities with you. This includes quality conversation.
Receiving Gifts – They don’t have to be expensive to send a powerful message of love. They can be purchased, found, or made. Family or lover who forget a birthday or anniversary or who never give gifts to someone who truly enjoys gift-giving will find themselves with a person who feels neglected and unloved. This would include the gift of your presence during a crisis.
Act of Service – Loving someone whose language is “acts of service” will require time and creativity. These acts of service need to be done with joy in order to be perceived as a gift of love. Possible examples: cleaning someone’s house, running an errand or favor, doing tasks without being asked.
Physical Touch – Meaningful touch. Some examples might include hugs, shoulder massages, leaning against the other person, etc.
