Perfect Acts Of Love To Do For Your Partner, According To Their Love Language

If you haven't heard about it already, the 5 Love Languages is a personality assessment that helps determine your primary love language—words of affirmation, acts of service, giving/receiving gifts, quality time or physical touch. It also ranks the five languages in order based on the most important and least important in your love life. Not sure what yours, or your partner's, is? Take the assessment here.

One of the biggest benefits of learning your love language is a better understanding of not only yourself but how to love your partner in the best way possible. We often choose to express love to others in the way that we would like to receive it, but seldom bear in mind that sometimes, our partners may have other preferences. They might have a love language totally different from yours, and that is perfectly OK! By understanding their love language, there are plenty of kind acts you can do for them that will make them feel loved in a way that really speaks to them.

Words of Affirmation

1. Write them a letter

2. Surprise them with a phone call

3. If they don't pick up, leave them a sweet voicemail

2. Help them cross tasks/errands off their to-do list

3. Open the door for them, pull out their chair

4. If you live together, help out with chores, groceries, etc.

5. Ask your partner what they need help with

Receiving Gifts

1. Buy them flowers or something sentimental

2. Surprise them with a little gift for no reason

3. Deliver their coffee order

4. Put together a music playlist of songs that remind you of them

5. Show your appreciation if they give YOU a gift

Quality Time

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.
