You may have heard of the 5 love languages, read the book, and/or took the quiz but if you haven't keep reading so I can break down love languages and help you learn what your love language is to better your relationship.
Your love language is your way of receiving or perceiving love from someone. Have you ever been in a relationship and felt as though bae didn't support your business. Or that they didn't support your idea but when you two speak about it they feel as though they were, in fact, supporting you. Typically your love language is one main reason why you two were on two different pages.
Here's my love language;
So say I'm in a relationship and bae wants to support or show love and decides to use Acts of Service. Judging by my love language profile I'm sure I would be appreciative it, however, my response may be that he is not supporting, not engaged, or not showing up for me.
The reason why is because my highest love language is words of affirmation. Meaning that I'd rather you encourage with words, send motivating text messages, or leave sticky notes with things like "You Got This" written on them. Another idea would be to physically show up because quality time is my second highest. Quality time in my eyes is to show up and completely be engaged. I don't compete with cell phones, I will leave you and Siri to a romantic night without me.
Now does it make sense as to why you may do something for him and not get the response that you would like to receive, or vice versa?
I wish I knew this information years ago, but I just learned about it last year and for that reason, I'm sharing it so that you get take the 5 love language quiz and find out what your love language is. If you have a mate, send them the quiz so that everyone is on the same page. Post the results somewhere so that you two can seriously work on and develop a loving healthy relationship.
