Today I’m going to make a Valentine’s Day/Romance themed post revolving around my Love Language. I was introduced to this quiz yesterday from my boyfriend’s roommate who insisted me and my boyfriend take it. I’m pretty confident that I took this quiz before because it seemed very familiar. Basically the premise behind this quiz is to figure out how you understand your partners expressions of love. I would say the results are pretty accurate, so let’s talk about them.
The way this quiz is scored is 1-12. 12 being the highest and 1 being the lowest.
9. Quality Time
This is so accurate! Both me and my boyfriend are super busy! I work a job and taking 14 credits of schoolwork while my boyfriend works two jobs on top of other responsibilities. Carving time is pretty difficult during the week, but sometimes we just take a half hour to have a conversation and cuddle. Quality time together is definitely a way love can be expressed.
7. Acts of Service
Going out of your way to make someone happy is a key to success for a relationship. I found out that my boyfriend pre-ordered the 8th Harry Potter Book for me (based off the play in England) He knows how much the Harry Potter franchise means to me so the fact that he did this was awesome. Other ways includes bringing me coffee to work when I have had a hard day.
7 Words of Affirmation.
Giving someone compliments and telling them that they can do it is a great way to show your love for someone. I try and send texts to my boyfriend throughout the day. I love receiving words of affirmation too because it can help me get through a tough time.
5 Physical Touch
I enjoy receiving hugs every once in a while, but me and my boyfriend don’t really do PDA. I think that for some PDA makes people really uncomfortable and when I hang out with friends and my boyfriend, I want to make my friends feel included. This isn’t something huge in my relationship.
2. Receiving Gifts
This isn’t really how I express my love for my boyfriend and vice versa. I just have plenty of “stuff” already and I don’t need more. There are things I keep that have a special meaning to me, but I don’t need a gift to know that this person cares. I also really don’t give gifts that often because I would rather spend money on concert tickets or an experience that we can do together.
