Word of Affirmation: Those with this as their love language value spoken or written affection such as saying “I love you” often, receiving compliments and encouragement.
Quality Time: Those with Quality time as their love language tend to feel most loved when their partner genuinely wants to spend time with them. Particularly this action involves the partners giving each other their full undivided attention.
Acts of Service: If this is your love language then you love when your partner goes out of their way to help you with daily tasks without being asked, such as unloading the dishwasher before you get home from work or waking up early to make your coffee in the morning. This language is usually for those who believe “actions speak louder than words”
Gifts: Those that value “visual symbols of love” feel the most adored when given gifts. It’s not about the value of the gift but the thought process behind the item.
