Valentines day is just around the corner. Do you know your love language?
In case you have no idea what I’m talking about Gary Chapman wrote a book called the 5 love languages which he says we all give and receive love in the following ways:
- Acts of Service: Anything you do to ease the burden of responsibilities weighing on an “Acts of Service” person will speak volumes.
- Words of Affirmation: Unsolicited compliments mean the world to you.
- Physical Touch: Hugs, pats on the back, holding hands, and thoughtful touches on the arm, shoulder, or face—they can all be ways to show love.
- Quality Time: Nothing says, “I love you,” like full, undivided attention
- Receiving Gifts: Don’t mistake this love language for materialism; the receiver of gifts thrives on the love, thoughtfulness, and effort behind the gift.
It really makes a difference understanding how people in your life give and receive love. For a short glimpse of your language take this test!
For a more in-depth (and probably more accurate) test you can go to Gary Chapman’s website They have the same test for children, singles, and teenagers here too.
