With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, it’s the perfect time to get to know the 5 different love languages and how you can best use these to communicate your feelings with loved ones. Not only can this help strengthen your relationships, but it just may also help you get to know a little more about yourself!

 

According to the popular book by Gary Chapman, Ph.D., The 5 Love Languages: The Secret to Love That Lasts, there are five love languages that represent different ways we both express and receive love:

 

Words of Affirmation

People with this love language thrive on verbal affirmations and expressions of love. In addition to saying the important words, these individuals also appreciate the written word from things like cards and hand-written letters.

 

Quality Time

For those who speak this love language, nothing is more valuable that uninterrupted one-on-one time with their partner and other loved ones. To show these loved ones you care, be sure to plan a special activity where you can focus your time and energy on your conversation and interactions.

 

Acts of Services

Sometimes, it’s the little gestures that mean the most! Individuals who speak this love language often believe that actions speak louder than words, and they place strong value on the little tasks that their partner does to make life easier and little brighter, such as picking up their favorite coffee while you are out or helping with chores on especially busy days.

 

Gifts

Just about everyone enjoys receiving gifts, but for those who speak this language, gifts are an important symbol of their relationships.  For these individuals, the act of receiving a thoughtful gift is much more important than the monetary value.

 

Physical Touch

This love language is for those who need a little human touch to affirm their emotional connections. Small acts like holding their hand, touching their shoulder, or offering a hug are great ways to make those with this language feel appreciated.
