Love Language

Thanks again for the get well wishes. I am feeling much better today. I haven't taken any medicine today because I don't like how it makes me feel, but I am feeling ok without it.

So, has anyone ever taken one of those quizzes to see what their "love language" is? I did and I can't say that I am surprised by the result.

I speak...
Gift Receiving
It says..."Some mates respond well to visual symbols of love. If you speak this love language, you are more likely to treasure any gift as an expression of love and devotion. People who speak this love language often feel that a lack of gifts represents a lack of love from their mate. Luckily, this love language is one of the easiest to learn.

If you want to become an effective gift giver, many mates will have to learn to change their attitude about money. If you are naturally a spender, you will have no trouble buying gifts for your mate. However, a person who is used to investing and saving their money may have a tough time adjusting to the concept of spending money as an expression of love. These people must understand that you are investing the money not in gifts, but in deepening your relationship with your mate.

The gift of self is an important symbol of love. Sometimes all your mate desires is for someone to be there for them, going through the same trials and experiencing the same things. Your body can become a very powerful physical symbol of love.

These gifts need not to come every day, or even every week. They don’t even need to cost a lot of money. Free, frequent, expensive, or rare, if your mate relates to the language of receiving gifts, any visible sign of your love will leave them feeling happy and secure in your relationship."

This isn't the first time I've taken this quiz and I got the same result. I was the only person in the room who got this language. Does this make me a materialistic person? A bad person?

It is right on the dot about me. I do love gifts even gifts of affection. I can't wait for Fred to take the quiz.

Have you taken this quiz? If so, what is your love language? (now you have to say "love language" in your most seductive voice)

P.S. It's exactly four months from my birthday!!! In case you wanted to start shopping for me now. ;)

My luuuuuve language is Acts of Service and Words of Affirmation. I think 5 Love Language is the best book in the history of all books! My husband is Physical Touch. We both struggle with showing each other love through their language.

My b-day is in 3 months and 5 days. You just made me do math.

I took the test back in college when my college church group was going through the book, and I scored highest in Words of Affirmation and Gifts. I scored a 1 or 2on Physical Affection. I have since warmed up to that one. LOL

I've taken this test several times (and several different types of it) and every time my love language comes out to be Quality Time. Which is pretty much dead on. Although, I would have to say I have lots of love languages, haha! Who doesn't mind words of affirmation or gifts?! : )

I have taken this quiz and got the same response as you...I just had to tell myself that it wasn't exactly the "thing" I got it that made me love it,it was more the fact that the person thought enough of me to go the extra mile and buy something just for me....

This is such a great exercise. Our pastor had us read this book during our pre-marital counseling. I found it very interesting!

I "speak" acts of service...
