What's Your Love Language?
What is your love language? On a recent episode of The Friend Zone, podcast hosts Fran, Dustin, and Assante talked about the importance of knowing your love language and that of your romantic partner or your prospective romantic partner.
Of the many ways that people show their love to others, there are five love languages: Words of Affirmation, Quality Time, Receiving Gifts, Acts of Service, and Physical Touch. I never really thought about the ways that I show my love to others or how the ways I communicate my love to others influences how I expect them to communicate their love to me.
Listening to Dustin, Assante, and Fran talk about their love languages emboldened me to find out my own. So, I asked my good girlfriend Google to help me and she directed me to the love language test posted below. After answering 30 short questions, I found out that my love language is quality time.
In the vernacular of Quality Time, nothing says, “I love you,” like full, undivided attention. Being there for this type of person is critical, but really being there—with the TV off, fork and knife down, and all chores and tasks on standby—makes your significant other feel truly special and loved. Distractions, postponed dates, or the failure to listen can be especially hurtful.
Take the quiz below to find out your love language.
