Lol my results make me sound super materialistic, but I got 0 for words of affirmation which of course is the main way my SO expresses his love. *facepalm* haha. I imagine it is his highest love language too but will have to get him to take the quiz. I definitely much prefer actions over words and my top 2 were gifts and acts of service. 

Now to buy the book.

My sister and her (now) hubby read this in premarital counseling- she passed it on to me when she and I were fighting.  Turns out I’m BIG Words of Affirmation receiver, but I show my love with Quality Time… my sister is big on giving Quality Time, but needs Acts of Service.  It’s really interesting to me because it can apply to MOST relationships, not just the romantic ones! 

I let Fiance know about the book and he was intrigued by it too… turns out we are on par for what we need, but neither of us were particularly good at giving it.  We worked on that!  By learning that we needed to be more affirming toward one another, we’ve caused this really positive pattern which sometimes makes the negative stuff easier to deal with.  It’s almost like, “I know he loves X, Y, and Z… but A bothers him… that’s not too bad!”
