It’s Spring. Love is in the air. Oprah’s Lifeclass with Dr. Gary Chapman is on OWN.
We all have a love language, and we feel loved when the people in our lives speak our love language:
We often give people the kind of love we’d like to receive without realizing that the person we care deeply for is speaking another love language. For example, the man in your life might be big on physical touch. You, however, may be more turned on by acts of service like volunteering to do household tasks or a foot rub at the end of a long day. If so, you love language might be acts of service.
A friend who loves receiving gifts may not realize that her friend would prefer words of affirmation. People who are big on affirmation will likely remember to send a thank-you note for those gifts.
You can quickly find out which type you are by taking Dr. Chapman’s quiz. It’s fun. If you want to win my heart, forget about gifts. Quality time with you is what I want. Acts of service and words of affirmation carry equal weight, and an occasional hug would be nice.
If you take the quiz, please let me know your love language so that I can honor who you are.
