The Five Love Languages
The 5 Love Languages were theoreticized by Dr. Gary Chapman, a marriage counselor, to help people better understand what makes them feel loved. Knowing your love language not only improves your romantic relationship, but also your relationships with friends and family since it really makes a difference for everyone to know the best ways to show your love for each other. The 5 Love Languages are Words of Affirmation, Acts of Service, Receiving Gifts, Quality Time, and Physical Touch and are pretty self-explanatory, but here's a quiz to help you out.
