So, yesterday was Singles Day (in case you didn’t know) so that, along with the release of Ariana Grande’s latest album (a bop, obviously) and one of its songs, they’ve inspired today’s post. So, let’s get into it. Have you ever wondered what your love language is or what that even means? Well, never fear! We’re here to guide and inform. By the end of this post, you’ll know what they are and be able to use that to help you figure out what you’re really looking for in a partner. You’re welcome! So, here are the 5 love languages, explained!
So, if you’re someone who likes when your partner does things for you, like helping you run errands when you’re stressed out at work, then your love language may be acts of service. This means that you’re someone who would prefer that someone shows you how they feel, instead of telling you. You really appreciate when someone is taking an interest in your world and doing their part to help and make things easier. So, if you have a partner who appreciate acts of service, the best thing to do is help them out whenever you can.
If your partner’s love language is physical touch, then
that connection will be incredibly important to them.
I can already hear a lot of you being like ‘yeah sex, obviously.’ However, physical touch goes beyond that. We’re talking holding hands, getting massages, sitting with their arm around you or even having your hair played with. Any sort of physical contact that shows a level of intimacy that you don’t have with anyone else. If your partner’s love language is physical touch, then that connection will be incredibly important to them. So, make sure you find ways to show your affection for them through touch.
I’m sure we’ve all come across people who act like spending time with their partner is some sort of chore, which definitely shouldn’t be the case and is just plain rude when you think about it. Well, for a lot of people, being able to spend time together, just the two of you is so essential. If this is the case with your partner, their love language is likely quality time. So, you could do things like have date nights and making sure you put your phone away when you’re together, so they really know that you’re focused on them during that time.

One thing to remember is that they normally
enjoy gifts that have meaning, so something that
will remind them of a trip you took together etc.
Now, this love language has long been viewed by many as materialistic and that is not always the case. If you’re all about receiving gifts, it doesn’t necessarily mean the gifts have to be diamonds every day. I could be small gifts, to show that you were thinking about them. Of course, it’s likely you’ll get them gifts for birthdays, anniversaries and festive holidays etc. but maybe they’ll appreciate when you bring them flowers randomly or you get them a book that they’ve been saying they wanted to read for a while. One thing to remember is that they normally enjoy gifts that have meaning, so something that will remind them of a trip you took together etc.
Who doesn’t love to hear how much they’re appreciated, right? If words of affirmation are your love language, then you’ll definitely be a fan of being given a pet name or your partner vocally encouraging you and saying they love you. You feel most secure when your partner is telling you how they feel and showing their support for you through words. This can also extend to the written medium. So, try writing them little love notes and definitely good morning and good night texts/calls. They’ll love it!
