According to Chapman, those whose love language is “words of affirmation” use words to affirm people of their love for them. Whether it’s compliments, verbal support, or just being super vocally communicative about their love and appreciation, people who speak this language are all about words and using them. If they could, they’d probably write you a song for every day of the week — and sing it to you.
2. Acts Of Service
For the percentage of people whose love language is “acts of service,” action speaks louder than words, therefore having a far superior impact than any words could possible have. While these people are far less likely to give a compliment or something else verbal, they will go above and beyond in showing their love by doing things they know their partner will interpret as love.
3. Receiving Gifts
Although there’s the mentality that money can’t buy love (oh, really?!), people whose love language is “receiving gifts” might disagree a bit. It’s these people who feel most loved when they’ve received a gift. But what this also means is that they’re more likely to show their love by giving gifts, because the receiving of goodies is ingrained in their mind as what represents love. So… this one seems like a win-win for everyone involved.
4. Quality Time
For those whose love language is “quality time,” it’s all about devotion and focus on the person they love. It’s not just about having a conversation, but turning off the TV, putting the phone on silent, and locking the world out so that person, the one who is loved, doesn’t doubt for even the slightest of seconds, just how much they are loved. These people also understand that “quality time” doesn’t exactly mean sitting on the couch next to each other, binge-watching Stranger Things.
5. Physical Touch
As its name suggests, the “physical touch” love language means that those who speak this one need to be touched, caressed, kissed, hugged, cuddled — the works — in order to feel loved. Without it, these people have a hard time understanding that they’re loved, as they literally want to be physically loved. If you’re not a natural cuddler, but you’re in a relationship with someone who speaks “physical touch,” then you may have to step up your game.
