Do You Speak Your Partner's Love Language?

Posted by   + Show Post

Ian Kerner, Sex and Relationship Expert guides us through a quiz that helps you evaluate which forms of expression you use to communicate your love to your partner. Watch this video to see what he has to say:

Is physical touch more important than words of affirmation? Or would you rather have more quality time than receive gifts?

I think for both of us it is touch. But I am also big on quality time, while he feels any time together is enough, even if I'm buried in a book and he is watching tv.

 We each have a different language and we each know what the other's is.

I would say we are terrible at speaking each other's love language. :/

Mine is quality time and acts of service, with every other love language coming in way behind. I struggle in making sure DH feels loved in other ways, but I know he really thrives on physical touch. Even though it's not a natural fit, being aware of how to communicate love has been really helpful in the relationship.

yes. we aren't clearly in one category or another, but we would rank ours similarly, i think.

For me it's acts of service and physical touch. For him it's words of affirmation and physical touch. We both are fluent in each others' love languages.

Lots of quality time

I agree!

Quoting Bmat:

touch is important, and I'd rather have time than gifts.
