Here’s what your love language says about you

Have you ever poured your heart into a romantic gesture, only to be met with a lukewarm response? It can feel like your love is getting lost in translation. It’s not necessarily that your partner’s ungrateful or that you messed up. They just communicate their love differently – or have a different love language. Just like languages, we all have different ways of expressing and receiving love. 

Do thoughtful gifts make your heart sing? Or maybe a romantic dinner feels like a true expression of love? Perhaps words of encouragement light up your day, or a simple hug speaks volumes? Here’s what your love language means and says about you.


You find joy in thoughtful presents and gestures that go beyond empty words. It shows that someone has been paying attention, remembering your interests, and putting in the effort to make you feel special. Gifts don't necessarily mean grand ones, they can just be thoughtful ones because, for you, it's the sentiment behind the gesture that truly matters.

Physical touch

For some, love isn't just a feeling, it's a physical connection. If this resonates with you, then your love language is physical touch. You find comfort and security in closeness, in different ways – with hugs, cuddles, kisses, and holding hands. Words may not always come easily, but physical touch speaks volumes for you. It's a way to express your deepest emotions and feel truly seen and understood.

Quality time 

If your love language is quality time, you feel cherished and loved when you have your loved one's undivided attention. It's not just about spending time together, but about truly being present in the moment. Weekly date nights, game nights, or even just helping each other with chores can be powerful expressions of love for you. 

Words of affirmation

Some people wear their hearts on their sleeves, but for you, love blooms through the power of words. If this resonates with you, then your love language is Words of affirmation. For you, words are more than just communication, they're a way to build up and strengthen your love. You shower your loved ones with compliments, celebrate their victories, and offer words of encouragement during tough times. A simple "I love you" or "I'm so proud of you" can go a long way in making you feel cherished. 

Acts of service 

Have you ever heard the saying “actions speak louder than words”? Well, this phrase is the basis of the Acts of service love language. If you value actions more than words, your love language is most likely Acts of service. You probably love and appreciate all the little things your partner does for you, even if it’s as simple as making you coffee in the morning or serving you breakfast in bed! Unlike for someone with the Gift-Giving love language, love for you is felt through visible actions, not gifts. Little things like running errands, offering a back rub after a stressful day, or simply taking on a task you know your partner dislikes – these acts become your way of saying "I love you."
