A love language is best described as the way you like to express and receive love. The idea was originally proposed by counselor Gary Chapman in 1992.
Chapman identified 5 love languages, each with their own unique qualities. The five love languages are as follows:
While you may find that more than one of the 5 love languages resonates with you (who doesn’t love spending time with a loved one or receiving small gifts?), most people have a main love language that trumps the rest.
So, while you may very much enjoy cuddling and holding hands with a loved one, the underlying reason might be because you’re receiving this person’s undivided attention during your one-on-one time, which means it’s the quality time that really matters to you versus the physical touch.
Understanding your own love language (how you prefer to receive love) can help you build stronger connections with the important people in your life. It can also provide clarity as to why a loved one’s actions impact you the way you do.
