3. Love Languages
We all want to be loved, but not in the same way. Love languages refer to our preference for how we want to be loved. The five love languages are words of affirmation, acts of service, quality time, receiving gifts, and physical touch. This applies to platonic relationships as well.
To find out the preferred love language, you and your partner can take the test here. Once you know their preference, you can show your affection in a language that speaks to them.
This may not be your preferred language, and that’s okay. Because this is not about you, it’s about making conscious decisions to love your partner in the way they need to be loved. Some adjustments will be called for.
