To some Valentine’s Day is a way to show a little extra appreciation to that special someone in their lives. Others might not enjoy the holiday as much though. There are five main love languages: words of affirmation, quality time, receiving gifts, acts of service, and physical touch. Everyone’s love language is personalized to themselves and some even relate to having multiple languages speak to them. Here’s how to appeal to each love language:
Words of affirmation
This language can be shown appreciation in multiple ways. Simply writing a card or having a deep conversation with this type of person can really go far in their eyes. They dwell on the words that you say and thrive off of them.
Quality time is pretty self-explanatory and simply goes back to just spending time with that person. Some people enjoy doing this by staying in and watching a movie, others enjoy getting dressed up and going out to dinner or a local event going on.
3. Receiving gifts
This type of love language is straightforward. They appreciate the materialistic things that you bring to the table. Some basic ideas to gift someone for Valentine’s Day could be giving them flowers, candy, or a picture of the both of you.
Acts of Service
This language can be hard to get right at times. In doing acts of service for someone, you appeal to making their life easier by going the extra mile to do something for them. You can do this by simply helping them run an errand or assisting them in a project they are working on.
Physical touch is also more self-explanatory. Simply giving them a hug, kiss, or holding their hand really helps them to feel appreciated and cared for.
Love languages can be confusing at times and also change as people do. When it boils down to it, if you want to show someone that you care for them just make an attempt to appeal to their likes. Try to stop and take the time to show someone you care about them this week whether it be your significant other, a friend, or a coworker.
