Here’s information about the 5 Love Languages.
Mine is 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. Physical touch fosters a sense of security and belonging in any relationship.
What’s yours? 🙂

Quality time is definitely my top one, followed by words of affirmation. My FI’s top is also quality time, followed by touch.

Apparently I’m physical touch.
I felt some of these questions were leading or didn’t apply to me. Like question 5… “I would like for my husband to put his arm around me in public.” My husband does. Or, “I would like my husband to bring me gifts from his travels.” No, I don’t. My husband already does one thing, I’m not lacking in that particular department. Or better yet, question 7. “I feel loved when my husband gives me gifts.” No more than I feel loved any other time. Followed by, “I know he loves me, I just want to hear him say it.” He does. So neither of these apply to me. He already tells me he loves me, and I don’t feel particularly more loved when he gives me things.

@classical_wolf: I think words of affirmation for me and physical touch for SO. I feel so loved when he says kind things to me and compliments me, and he is always happy with little things even holding hands or having his back rubbed.

In the vernacular of Quality Time, nothing says, “I love you,” like full, undivided attention. Being there for this type of person is critical, but really being there – with the TV off, fork and knife down, and all chores and tasks on standby – makes your significant other feel truly special and loved. Distractions, postponed dates, or the failure to listen can be especially hurtful. Quality time also means sharing quality conversation and quality activities.
Physical touch was my second highest score.
Def agree with that 🙂 And I’m fortunate because we get a lot of quality time together 🙂

The quiz said that my love language is Quality Time, which I think is accurate. My FI gives me A LOT of gifts and usually for no reason, which I very much love and appreciate, but being together is still what I love most.
I do feel like I show a lot of physical affection, but I also show love by giving gifts to people. I think its interesting that I prefer to receive quality time, but feel the need (maybe not the need, but the desire?) to give people stuff if I love them. Receiving gifts actually was my lowest score, but maybe thats because he already gives me a lot of gifts so I didn’t feel the need to answer the gift-giving questions with positive answers.
