Take The Quiz
In order to take the quiz correctly, for each question you are supposed to select the one answer that suits you best. The tricky part is, if you don’t like any of the options, you still need to choose the one that comes the closest to suiting you.
The same rule applies even if you love both options, you still need to choose the one option that suits you more than the other one does. Remember to record the letter of the phrase that suits you best as you will need that later to find out what your love language is.

What does your love language mean?
Words Of affirmation
This means that you love hearing how much you mean to your partner. This usually consists of verbal compliments or any form of reassurance about how your partner feels for you. Essentially you want to hear lots of sincere, sweet, romantic, and intimate feelings that are only shared between the two of you.
If this is your love language, that means you love having your partner’s undivided attention and you just want to spend as much time with him talking, hanging out, or doing activities together. However, the key word is undivided, no matter what you’re doing, you want to be priority number one and the focal point of his attention.
This love language means you want little reminders in the form of gifts. Your partner should show that he remembered a special date, or that he had just thought of you and wanted to get you something nice.
Acts Of service
This means you want your partner to show how much he loves you by doing some of the things instead of you. Or just by doing certain things for you to show you that you are appreciated, that he wants to help you, and is willing to do things for you.
This means you just want to feel connected and actually be connected physically in order to feel loved. This can be you wanting to hold hands, be hugged, kissed, or anything that involves that intimate physical contact. This love language entails forms of touches that can be sexual or non-sexual.
Just because you and your partner have a different love language, it doesn’t mean that you are not meant to be. It just means that you like being reminded that you are loved in different ways. This is why it is important to share what your love language is so that way you can accommodate the other person’s preferred way of being showed they are loved.
It is also important to remember that you should not ignore the other love languages just because they aren’t their main one, all of them are important. You should still show you love your partner by using the other love languages as it will help your relationship grow.
Any reminder that a person loves you is extremely important for a healthy relationship, and by using different love languages for your significant other will always impress and keep things fresh.
The other love languages that aren’t their favourite may quickly become their favourite just because they are experiencing it from you. Just remember what their main love language is, as that one will be the one that they want to experience daily, or very frequently.
