The "5 Languages of Love" Concept Was Born in 1992

Back in 1992, Gary Chapman wrote The 5 Love Languages: The Secret to Love That Lasts.  Since then, his book has been referenced thousands of times by relationship experts, marriage counselors, and even individuals trying to strengthen their own relationships.  It's really simple: Everyone has a "love language," and once you learn what it is - it becomes very easy to show that person just how much you care.

Do You Know What The 5 Love Languages Are And How They Are Used?

The 5 Love Languages as outlined by Chapman's book are as follows:

  1. Words of Affirmation
  2. Quality time
  3. Acts of service
  4. Gifts
  5. Physical touch

For those whose love language is "Words of Affirmation," they way to ensure that everyone is on the same page is to simply tell them how you feel often enough that they have no doubt.  For "Quality Time," folks - it's the act of carving out a chunk of your schedule for them that really shows you care.  Once you identify your partner's language, you respond to them in a way that compliments it.  It's really a genius way to look at the way we communicate with our loved ones.
