Our Primary Love Language

Last week, a friend of mine shared an online quiz in which one would be able to know his or her Love Languages for his significant other.  According to the author of the book Gary Chapman, there are five key love languages among the countless ways we can show love.  These are the Words of Affirmation, Quality Time, Receiving Gifts, Acts of Service, and Physical Touch.  Everyone of us has a love language and there’s one language that’s predominant among all others.

I took the test here and likewise requested the husband to do the same.  Here are our results:

imageThe result to mine is not surprising at all because I know that I’m more of the “touchy” type.  Here’s what Gary Chapman says about Physical Touch:

This language isn’t all about the bedroom. A person whose primary language is Physical Touch is, not surprisingly, very touchy. Hugs, pats on the back, holding hands, and thoughtful touches on the arm, shoulder, or face—they can all be ways to show excitement, concern, care, and love. Physical presence and accessibility are crucial, while neglect or abuse can be unforgivable and destructive.

All along I thought, the husband’s was Acts of Service.  So I was surprised to know that his is also Physical Touch.  Perfectly compatible, huh?

Anyway, take note that the lowest score we both have is the Receiving Gifts.  That only means that we’re both very easy to please, we’re not that materialistic and purchases of luxurious LV bags nor expensive Asus Tablet PC aren’t needed just to show our love for each other.  Simple, sweet surprises actually matter more for us. :)
