The Best Part About Loving You, Based On Your Love Language

Love

You're so lovable!

Love languages can be complicated. If you don't know what love language you have, your love life will be in trouble.

Let's say you have a gentle, artistic boyfriend who uses words of affirmation to express his feelings for you. He knows all the right things to say, he tells you about how beautiful you are and sends you short poetry texts weekly. His behavior is charming, but you feel that it just doesn't do it for you. You understand that he loves you, but this isn't how you want him to express it.

You'd prefer him to show how he cherish you in a different way. You often find yourself thinking, "this is great but why can't he do the dishes every once in a while?" Or, "coming home to a nice cooked meal after a hard day of work would be great!" Or, "it would have been better if he would spontaneously hug me and kissed me all over."

According to the book The Five Love Languages by Dr. Gary Chapman, we all have a way to show how passionate we are about each other. The idea is there are five basic ways that we show our partner that we care about and appreciate them. What works for some may not work for others. 

Love isn't a one size fits all.

We all have a love language. Life would be boring if we were all exactly the same! Each of the five styles of love has their own perks and downfalls. The key to success in any relationship is understanding what makes you tick and what you want out of the relationship. Each language of love has something that makes it incredibly unique.

Here, you'll find out what's the best part about loving you based on your love language. This is why your love language makes you so darn lovable!

Words of Affirmation

You prefer good, old-fashioned words to express your affection. You give your love the attention he needs by just telling him how you feel. The best part of loving you is that you'll never keep anyone guessing. When you see that your partner is putting effort into his appearance, you'll make him feel like the hunkiest man alive by telling him just how handsome he is. You'll always make sure to tell everyone how much they mean to you.


Quality Time

Some people may think that Netflix and chill is a lazy way to show love, but that time is essential for you to feel cherished. These days its hard to find people who actually want to spend quality time with you. For you this means, Gasp! No cell phones, social media, or anything that would pull your lover's attention away from you. The best part about loving you is that you're a rare soul that will be focused entirely on the time you spend with your man. He will get all the attention he needs from you.

Acts Of Service 

You're the kind of girl that likes to get down and get dirty for her man. If there is a chore that needs to be done, you're the first to do it. You keep the lawn looking nice, and make sure the dishes are clean. You realize that most people don't like doing chores, so you do it to make their lives easier. The best thing about your love is that everyone benefits from your efforts. It may be difficult for your man to understand how you show your love, but once he does, he'll be grateful to you. 


Physical Touch

If you express your love through physical touch, you can be considered a hopeless romantic. One of the most important thing for you is showing your passion through intimate touching. You feel that snuggling time is essential and love random hugs. The best thing about loving you is that your love language is easiest to understand. Physical touch is excellent for creating intimacy and a powerful bond with your lover. All it takes is a little smooch or merely holding hands.


Receiving Gifts

Diamonds can be a girl's best friend. Some people think this makes you shallow or too materialistic, but we know better than that! You feel the most loved when you're receiving or giving gifts to your lover. When someone gives you a gift, it's the thought that counts. You put a lot of thought behind your gifts and love it when your lover does the same. You enjoy your man surprising you with random gifts of your favorite snack, or flowers. The best part of loving you is that a well thought out gift is what matters the most to you, not the price.
