Jon and I read “The Five Love Languages” by Dr. Gary Chapman last year. It was really enlightening. I did this online test last February, but Jon was curious to see if my results would still be the same. The only thing that changed was I seem to love words of affirmation more than ever (“acts of service” and “gifts” dropped!), but what I think is really going on is I get words of affirmation more than ever, and it makes me feel more loved than ever. :o)

The Five Love Languages

My primary love language is probably
Physical Touch
with a secondary love language being
Quality Time.

Complete set of results

Quality Time: 8

Information

Unhappiness in relationships, according to Dr. Gary Chapman, is often due to the fact that we speak different love languages. Sometimes we don’t understand our partner’s requirements, or even our own. We all have a “love tank” that needs to be filled in order for us to express love to others, but there are different means by which our tank can be filled, and there are different ways that we can express love to others.

A perfect song for those of us with physical touch as their primary love language:

I found it hard to choose between some answers, but I already knew my love language was physical touch.  No doubt I LOVE spending quality time with my hubby, getting unexpected gifts for no reason at all, receiving his encouragment and prayers, and the times when he makes supper or gets me coffee.  I love it all!!

About 5 months ago my marriage came off the rails.  It was a very tough time for Jon and I.  I may blog about that more some time.  God has done an incredible amount of healing, through the prayers of friends we shared our trouble with, and a very wise man at Jon’s work who leant him “The Five Love Languages”. Jon learned a LOT and shared what he learned with me. I learned that my love language is Physical Touch. This is how I need to give and receive love. Turns out it’s Jon’s love language too. We were just going about things the wrong way through issues of insecurity, attitudes. God has brought us a very long way!! Our marriage is filled with passion, tenderness, and oodles of love.

My man bought me a Valentine’s Day gift today and couldn’t wait until tomorrow to give it to me. Now being very in tune with what gets me happy, he bought me a bath set. An exfoliating scrub, bath foam, and body lotion. All with olive oil in the ingredients. How perfect for a woman who’s love language is physical touch!! I’m so impressed with his choice. He says he’ll be buying me stuff like that from now on. Smart man. ;-)

Like I needed another blog!  The fact is, I tend to need a place to express myself in all areas of my life that are important to me.  This little blog will be my playground for words dedicated to personal things that I’m passionate about.  Things like marriage, sexual intimacy, and everything around and in between.  Should be interesting!
