What's your love language?

Screen Shot 2014-12-10 at 7.03.42 PM Gary Chapman believes in 5 ways of feeling loved: words of affirmation, acts of service, receiving gifts, quality time, and physical touch. Some people find it more meaningful when they get to hold hands with their partners while others prefer hearing kind words like "I love you."

I took the quiz for people in relationships and got physical touch as my top love language. I'll admit, I could spend hours in bed just cuddling, and I'm always holding onto my boyfriend's arm. I smother my nephew in kisses whenever I see him and tell my mom I love her through extra long hugs.

My least important love language was acts of service, which is funny because that was my boyfriend's top one. Interestingly enough, I actually enjoy cleaning his apartment and helping him run errands while he loves receiving these favors but would prefer not to give them. Instead, he knows to hug me when I'm sad and get me a gift (my third highest language) when I've done something extraordinary for him.

P.S. It doesn't just apply for relationships; there's even a quiz to see how parents show love for their children.
