WIP Wednesday: Love Languages

WIP: Learning our love languages to better serve one another

Since I’m on my honeymoon this week, I thought it would be fun to investigate our love languages! I actually do not know my love language(s) so this is a completely new experience for me. Don’t get me wrong, I have an amazing husband and I feel like we are really in tune. This morning we even had a conversation about reading each other’s minds so easily. We are a great couple, but that in no way means we can’t be better.

After completing the quiz on http://www.5lovelanguages.com I discovered that I had a three-way tie!

• Acts of Service

• Physical Touch

• Quality Time

My other two were (in order): words of affirmation and receiving gifts. My results surprised me! I definitely think of myself who takes pleasure in receiving gifts, however, I also know that I am not huge on material items as a show of affection, so I guess it isn’t too surprising after all! To get a better idea of what these languages mean for me and my relationship, I quickly picked up the ebook and settled in to read.

At the time that I write this, I’ve only just begun the book. However, this isn’t a book review so that shouldn’t be an issue at all. The book does begin with an anecdote about a man who never learns to speak his partners love language, and commentary that this isn’t unusual. Immediately. I am happy that I have multiple languages. I feel that this gives me the ability to adapt to my partner and speak to him. But what does this mean for him speaking to me? As of now, this is still an unanswered question, but I am exited to find the answer!

Do you know what your love language is? Do you feel like it is an accurate depiction of yourself? Let me know in the comments, I love hearing from you!

One thought on “WIP Wednesday: Love Languages

  1. The 5 Love Languages is a great book! It teaches the core principle that we really need to do what’s important for your spouse, even when it’s not as important to us. This is also the core principle of my book.
