The season of romance is upon us and it’s a great time to educate yourself about love languages. If you’re like me you’ve been preaching all about finding someone that speaks the same love language as you to everyone you know. So let’s break it down and explain what they are and why they matter. Learning your partner’s love language will not only make your life easier on the daily, but it can also simplify things to the max when it comes to gift giving (Valentine’s Day hello!!) 1. Words of affirmation: If bae is a big fan of reassurance words or affirmation could be their love language for sure. In this case write them a letter alongside their gift, dig deep, doesn’t have to be an essay but they will appreciate the meaning behind this so much more. 2. Acts of service: My mom’s love language is acts of service: I’ve had 21 years of her asking me to do the dishes to prove it. LOL all jokes aside, if you’re in a situationship with a person and you’re thinking acts of service might be their love language, I’d say go for a big act of service. Think the grueling task bae is always complaining about and you’ve found your new to do list.
3. Receiving gifts: Not to be a brat but this is one of my love languages. A present to me is nothing about the value of it but more about showing that someone took the time to find something that reminds them of me. If your person falls into this category a perfect choice gift is jewelry. If you’re not sure where to start, I’d head over to Aurelie Gi. I’ve been wearing their dainty rings on repeat this season.
4. Quality time: Nothing says I care about you like planning a date for someone 🥺. Quality time can mean so many different things for different personalities so make sure to keep this in mind. Giving time truly means a lot because it is the most precious resource. 5. Physical touch: Super self explanatory, and still worth mentioning. This could be someone’s love language but they could also be against PDA. Again take the time to figure it out while also respecting boundaries goes without saying but, CONSENT.
