Recently Sabrina asked me to take a test on “love languages” or how one best receives love. There are five categories that include words of affirmation, physical touch, quality time, acts of service, or receiving gifts. They are measured in percentages. My highest percent was physical touch while Sabrina’s is receiving gifts. This test is based off of a book The 5 Love Languages The Secret To Love That Lasts by Gary Chapman. One of the theories is that relationships fail because they aren’t communicating and they aren’t aware of their significant others' love language and this makes them feel like their other does not care. This isn’t the case most of the time, they just don’t know how to show them that they care. I have found some truth to this and encourage you to take the test yourself. This is not just for someone you are in love with but family members and friends also. It can show that you care about them and are thinking of them. I think that this can be a great tool in uplifting each other at this time.
What do you think of this test and idea? Do you believe it is real and will you take the test? If you knew the love language of another would that make you more likely to do something that will speak to them? Have you already taken this test or are aware of these languages?
