Five Love Languages
Different people communicate love and affection in different ways. When you know how to say “I love you” to your partner, kids, friends, and family, it can improve communication and increase harmony. Plus, it could even help you to find the perfect gifts.
This New Year, explore these five different forms of love languages and find the right one for the special people in your life today.
Words of Affirmation
If your friend or partner’s love language is words of affirmation, that means they like to hear statements of love and appreciation aloud. They tend to be communicative people. This means they like to hear the confirmation that they’re doing a good job at something they care about or the spoken statement that they’re special to you.
Words of affirmation can be shared over the phone, via letter, or even text, but they are direct and personalized to fit the individual.
Some people prefer shows of affection rather than statements of love. This is often represented by quality time. This could mean hiking, playing a game, or even silently reading together in a shared space.
For individuals whose love language is quality time, it’s important to give them the attention they deserve as a friend, child, or family member. That means turning the phone off, really listening to their stories, and engaging with the activity or event. This will show them that you’re invested in time together and ensure there are no distractions.
Acts of Service
Another wordless way to share the love is through acts of service. This will vary from person to person, as all love languages do, but it’s a way of showing up for people before they ask. That can mean taking care of them when they’re sick or cleaning the house before they bring home a new baby.
It’s important to make sure you’re not overstepping your bounds with acts of service, but there are many ways to adjust the love language to fit your skills and their preferences.
Acts of service also aren’t typically asked for. They are performed with the intention of reducing a loved one’s load and giving them the chance to relax in a clean space or eat a home cooked meal. It’s also a good way to give and show affection without breaking the bank.
Physical touch can be an important way to say, “I care,” as well. While we typically think of physical touch as something we share with a partner, there are many ways to communicate with other special folks in our lives using touch.
Friends and kids alike are sure to appreciate a big hug on special occasions or when they’re feeling down. If you’re a master with a hairbrush, offer to give them a cute new look. You can even snuggle up with the little ones on the couch while you read a story or watch your favorite classic movie together.
Gifts may be a classic way to share good cheer, and for a good reason. You can give gifts your friends and loved ones are sure to appreciate for different holidays and birthdays. If you really want to make a person feel special, share something with them just because. It’s your little way to say, “I’ve been thinking of you.”
