Tomorrow is St. Valentine’s Day. Everybody knows that. However, there is something you don’t know. You don’t have to bring chocolates or flowers to your Valentine. Or rather you don’t need to, in some cases . Maybe what your partner needs in order to feel loved is some quality time, or to spend the whole Sunday hugging under the blanket, or to compliment him about his new hair style, or to keep your promise to her that you would fix that leaking faucet.
For there is not only one love language, but five. Yes, five. Five kinds of ways to show your loved ones that you love them. The problem is, not all of us speak the same language. At least, that is the conclusion Dr. Gary Chapman reached after years of study. And it is all summed up in his book, ‘The 5 love languages’. I was lucky to receive this book as a gift, as I would possibly not have known about it otherwise. And I read it straight away (you can find it listed in the Books of 2015, although I haven’t written a review – and you now know why).
As I said before, there are five love languages: the words of affirmation, the acts of service, receiving gifts, quality time and physical touch. So, in order to understand which of these is your primary love language or the primary love language of the person you love, you can simply make the test provided in ‘The 5 Love Languages’ website.
St. Valentine’s Day, the official day of love, is only a day away. So, what are you waiting for? Do the test, give it to your partner too, and organize an event which combines both of your love languages! And if you need some help, remember that I am here to help you !
