We all want to be good partners, but sometimes this gets lost with the demands of day to day life. We want to show the person that we love that we do love them and how much we care about them, but sometimes, it can be hard to express this in the right ways. If you want to treat your partner well and you’re looking for some assistance when it comes to the right things to do, learning their love language can be a big help. Love languages are different ways that people show their love and want to be shown love. Everyone is different and sometimes, your partner will want to be shown love in a way you hadn’t considered before. By learning your partner’s love language, you can be a much better partner and have a much better relationship. Here are the five love languages and how to express them!
A common love language that many people like is quality time. Spending quality time with your partner can help to bring a huge smile to their face if this is their love language. This could be doing nice things together that they enjoy – perhaps a museum, the cinema, a meal or something else – or it could be simply spending time together while you’re not really doing much at all.
Acts of Service
Acts of service lift a weight from your loved one’s shoulders or show them that you’ve gone out of your way to do something nice for them. For example, if you can see your partner is really busy or stressed, an act of service could be doing some chores so that they don’t have to worry about them, cooking them a meal or doing something else that makes their day easier. Alternatively, if you know their favorite coffee has been launched, picking one up for them while you’re out and bringing it home to them can be an act of service.
Words of Affirmation
Some people like to be told that they are loved, that they are appreciated, that they are good partners, that they are attractive and more. If this sounds like your partner, chances are, their love language is words of affirmation.
Gift giving is a popular love language that involves your partner experiencing joy and feeling appreciated when you give them something that shows you care. Gifts can be anything. From small gestures like a cake or bunch of flowers to larger gestures such as Name Chains and other jewelry, tech, bags, coats, shoes or more.
If your partner’s love language is physical touch, they feel loved and appreciated when they are in contact with you. This may be holding hands, having arms around each other as you walk down the street, regular kisses, hugs and more.
As you can see, the five love languages are different from one another, and most people enjoy a combination of different ones. But finding your partner’s really can help you to make them a lot happier in your relationship.
