Recently I finished reading The Five Love Languages. I had heard that it was a really good book, and amazing for couples so I just had to read it! It was an easy read with some great insight. It basically says that we all have a love language, and this love language is the best way that we receive love. There are five different love languages that people can have, and this is the one thing that makes us feel so super loved- like you go into work the next day and you just have that warm, fuzzy, I am so loved and in love feeling.
The love languages are receiving gifts, acts of service, touch, quality time, and words of affirmation. At first I thought these all sounded great, but in the book the love languages are broken down and explained in detail on ways that you can give this kind of love to your partner. I highly recommend reading it because once you discover what your love language is and what your soulmate’s love language is you will see giving and receiving love in a whole new light!
Greg and I actually have the same love language, and it is definitely quality time! We crave spending time together, and we just want to experience and do everything together. I actually read the book while we were out hunting together. We have been like this since we met because it is just the way we love! We share hobbies, talk, and give each other our undivided attention. When we’re together and one of us is not paying attention to the other we will say ummm… you’re not paying enough attention to me, and we both laugh and give the other all the love they need.
I also have a secondary love language which would be touch because I also just need to be as close as can be, and cuddles are my thing!
