Have you ever thought about what your love language is? For those of you who don’t know, your love language is the way in which you express or receive love. This love language idea was developed by Dr. Gary Chapman, whose book, The Five Love Languages: The Secrets to Love That Lasts, outlines 5 languages in which people express their love: Words of Affirmation, Receiving Gifts, Acts of Service, Physical Touch, and Quality Time. Knowing what your love language is can help you determine how you communicate your love and appreciation, and can potentially improve your relationships with significant others, family, and friends.
