Love Languages!

I was thinking about love the other day (this is not a rare occurrence)I thought about Gary Chapman’s 5 Love Languages and I thought it might be fun to review them.

Everyone has their own Love Language and once you realize yours and your fiancée or husband or boyfriend and you can connect with them in their own language, it makes you're love life and your life-life a lot easier.

Here are just a few, you can check out the website for the rest if your interested...

  1. Words of Affirmation – Not counting verbal compliments, another way to communicate is to offer encouragement. Like understanding a difficult decision, or calling attention to great progress made on a project, or even acknowledging a person’s unique perspective on a topic that is important to them. If a loved one listens for Words of Affirmation, then offering them encouragement will help them overcome insecurities and develop greater confidence.
  2. Quality Time - Quality activities are a very important part of quality time. Many of us feel most    loved when we spend physical time together, doing things that we love to do. Whether it’s sitting on the couch and having a brief conversation or playing together in a tennis league, quality time is a love language that is shared by many. Setting aside focused time with your mate will ensure a happy marriage
These are very important aspects of a relationship, and everyone communicates differently. I think that John and I have or had completely different love languages and now that we've been together so long we are sort of melding into having our own love language. {Quit your oooohing and awwwe'ing...}
