Love Languages

A long time ago a good friend of mine had told me about this thing called your love language. She informed me how it was like a quiz you take, and then it decides how you show/give/accept love in your life between a few many ways. I found it an interesting idea, but forgot to delve further into the topic at the time. I was recently reintroduced to the topic when browsing some new blogs, so I had to google it, of course. I took the quiz, and my results were as shown above.

Apparently my love language is quality time. Not much of a surprise to me although what it had to say about me was interesting.
"In Quality Time, nothing says “I love you” like full, undivided attention. Being there for this type of person is critical, but really being there—with the TV off, fork and knife down, and all chores and tasks on standby—makes you feel truly special and loved. Distractions, postponed activities, or the failure to listen can be especially hurtful."

All of which makes perfect sense to me. I cherish spending long amounts of time with the people I love, I like to look people in the face when we talk, I would rather spend a day doing nothing with someone special to me, than do something active by myself. Physical touch coming in at my second, also makes sense to me. I grew up an only child with two very loving parents; we've always hugged and kissed and said I love you, I love nothing better than cuddling up on the couch with the boy or holding hands, I am definitely a quality time spendin', physical lovin' kinda gal. I'm just not sure now what to do with this information... hah!

Take the love languages quiz for yourself here. (If nothing else, its a fun little distraction!) Maybe you'll learn something about yourself.
