I think it's exceedingly important to
know how you need love expressed to you because this allows
open dialogue and understanding to occur between
you and your significant other.
So the other day I decided to take a test to learn what
my love language was.
Although Words of Affirmation and Quality Time were high on
my language love score, my highest score was...
This language isn't all about the bedroom. A person whose primary language is Physical Touch is, not surprisingly, very touchy. Hugs, pats on the back, holding hands, and thoughtful touches on the arm, shoulder, or face--they can all be ways to show excitement, concern, care, and love. Physical presence and accessibility are crucial, while neglect or abuse can be unforgivable and destructive.
I wasn't very surprised that my top love language was physical touch, because I've always been an extremely affectionate and loving person towards significant others. With Andrew, I always want to be within near contact of him (when I'm with him that is). I don't know how to explain it...but it's as if I gravitate towards him without even knowing it. Even if we aren't in "physical" contact, I'm always aware of where he is. And thankfully, Andrew succeeds beyond my expectations regarding expressing love through physical touch. He's extremely affectionate towards me always! He loves holding my hand, putting his arm around me, giving me quick but sweet kisses...even if we're just lying on the couch (with the girls between us) periodically we just reach over to grab each other's hands or cuddle for a bit...just those random, small moments that makes me know he loves me.
