How To Figure Out Your Partner's Love Language
Most of us do to our partner what we want him/her to do for us. We act out our own love language(s). For example, Roody is always doing things for me and always wants to spend time with me. I’m always lifting him up with kind words and touching him (I’m annoying).
It turns out that “acts of service” & “quality time” are Roody’s love languages, and “words of affirmation” & “physical touch” are mine.
Pay attention to your partner’s love language and make an effort to show your partner love in the way s/he prefers it. Doing so can take the guessing out of your relationship and you will find that your partner is much more content.
- Some men think that all a woman wants for her birthday or anniversary are flowers or jewelry. If her love language isn’t “receiving gifts” then you might be wasting your money. Maybe she wants to spend the entire day with you, watching chick flicks. Or a candlelight dinner where you tell her how awesome she is. Figure out her love language.
- Some women think that all a man wants for his birthday or anniversary is sex. I mean, most men do haha. But maybe your man would love something more personal? Like, tell him how proud you are for him and how much you appreciate everything he does. Take him to his favorite sports team’s game and let him eat all the bad food. Figure out his love language.
You don’t need to take the “love language test” to figure this out. Just ask yourself, what is my partner always doing for me? Those actions might actually be quite telling 🙂 #Marriage101
