Love Language

Whether you are in a marriage or just want to improve a close relationship, I suggest you read The 5 Love Languages by Dr. Gary Chapman.  It's been a New York Times bestseller for a very long time.  Your relationship doesn't have to be in trouble to benefit from the key principles, because  hey, there is no limit to amazingness!  You will discover what you and your loved one individually need in your relationship, like never before, because the book helps you identify the language you prefer.  Once you know what language you hear, and discover what language your partner hears, the understanding improves and the relationship grows deeper, fuller, richer.

The five languages are fascinating - everyone has a preference:
  • Words of Affirmation - if this is your language, words affirm you
  • Acts of Service - a helping language - don't just say it, do it e.g. take out the garbage!
  • Receiving Gifts - a gift is an expression of love for some (I'm thinking jewelry)
  • Quality Time - undivided attention for each other is a love language
  • Physical Touch - gestures like hand holding really speak to you
In addition to reading the book, there's a mobile app that pushes reminders and alerts.  It guarantees results in 5 weeks!  Watch this short clip:

Happy Valentine's Day - to all my loved ones out there!  xoxoxoxxoxo
