Do you know your love language? There is a famous book/concept by Gary Chapman called The 5 Love Languages. It is a fun exercise to learn which of the five love languages you speak, as they can elaborate on how you give and receive love. To summarize them, they are words of affirmation, acts of service, gifts, quality time and physical touch. So, I’ll ask again, do you know which of these five you most identify with as it relates to giving and receiving love?

If you don’t, it is OK. However, I highly encourage you to take the exams online or read the book and find out. You’ll hopefully be enlightened in a way that really strengthens your relationships once you not only know what love language you use, but what your loved one uses as well.
