What is your love language?

Asked by SuperMouse (30798points) June 13th, 2009

According to Dr. Gary Chapman, there are five Love Languages, they are quality time, touch, words, acts of service, and receiving gifts. What is your love language? Do you and your S/O speak the same love language?

My fiance was just talking about this last night and brought it up before.

I tend to express love through touch, acts of service and quality time.
I receive love through touch, words and quality time.

We match up quite well in what I give to what she receives and vice versa.

If you’re Italian, there’s a sixth one: Food

For me it’s Touch. I couldn’t access the site fully to take the test and confirm/deny it… but that’s the first thought that came to mind.
no SO in my life these days so I can’t answer that part :(
@cprevite I agree with you on the food part!

For Blondesjon and me it is Finnish.

According to that, I’d say Quality Time.

SirBailey's avatar

For me it’s GIVING gifts and touch.

You left out INTENSE SEX…..I believe it incompasses all of the above.

@Mr_Callahan: Except for speaking Finnish.

I guess that I am multi-lingual.

these are simple common sense. The fact that a guy can make $$$ writing books about what should be a natural thing between two loving people, and then claim it is about a covenant with an non-proveable deity really says a lot about the state of affairs in the modern world.

It’s kind of sad really, that people need to be told how to treat each other in a partnership based on love and respect. If you can get rid of your greed and selfishness when it comes to your partner, the rest is easy. Well, at least its easy for my wife and I.

Personally, I love through words.
I’m highly attracted to intelligence – the soul and mind – and as a result of that, along with various other aspects of my self, I love others through words.

@gailcalled Careful! Milo might get jealous. :)

I haven’t taken the test but for me I would say quality time and acts of service. It will be interesting to see what the test reveals. Good question!

Was there a test on that site?

aprilsimnel's avatar

I have no SO right now, but I was very huggy with them all. Only one matched me. The others were acts- and gifts-oriented.

My ex made me read that shit (I’m not downing the book, it was just the circumstances under which he made me read it). Apparently my love languages are quality time and acts of service.

Aethelwine's avatar

@fireside I thought someone mentioned a test. If not, my bad. :)

essieness's avatar

@jonsblond There’s a quiz in the back of the actual book. You answer questions and based on your score, it tells you your love language.

augustlan's avatar

I’d say I give and receive love through words, touch, and acts of service.

Judi's avatar

Acts of Service.

wundayatta's avatar

Me:
(sexual) touch = intimacy = trust = love (receiving love)

service and words (to show love)

My wife:
(non-sexual) touch, and words (receive love)

service, words (to show love)
