    I’d say it is physical touch, with words of affirmation a close second.  We are very affectionate, and love to hold hands, kiss (even little pecks on the nose or forehead), and even just having our legs touch while we sit on the couch on our comps is wonderful 🙂

    Great idea to post this thread. Love this book. It has helped me understand my dating partners so much better. It is so important to match up with someone who “speaks” the same love language.

    I really appreciate physical touch and words of affirmation and I express my love through acts of service and physical touch. My partner loves words of affirmation first then acts of service. He gives love through gifts and words of affirmation (I’m working on him to give more physical affection).

    Mine is mainly physical touch however quality time ranks up there as well. DH is definitely acts of service. He is very opposite of me if compared with the love languages. He could do without physical touch and quality time but does it to make me happy. I do acts of service for him (cleaning, cooking, planning) to see him happy.

    I thought the author of that book etc. said it was actually better to have different ones? — Just of course you have to learn to communicate in theirs as well

    But I’m not sure.  In just taking their test online, and in thinking about it, we would both be acts of service, but I also feel like we speak quite different ‘love languages’ in what makes us feel loved.

    I took the test once and I tied on Words of Affirmation and Acts of Service. I can deal with being apart, and I’m not super touchy, and I don’t really need presents… but I definitely need my husband to tell me he thinks I”m awesome, and to feel like he takes care of me.

    Mine is definitely quality time. FI is probably physical touch.

    Acts of service, totally. Nothing makes me feel more loved than cleaning so I don’t have to, especially the litter box.

    @Birdee106:  I agree with you. I guess I didn’t write it out that well.

    I was thinking of the difficulty when your partner doesn’t show love in the same languages that tell you someone loves you. In my case, without physical affection I have a hard time feeling that my partner loves me.

    physical touch. I think it applies to me in relation to everybody in my life. if they don’t want to hug me, I feel like I did something wrong.
