5 Ways to say ‘I love you’ without speaking
Spouses Day is on January 26th, and this year, you should go all out to understand your partner’s love language!.
It is not always necessary to say “I love you” to express your feelings to your partner.
According to Gary Chapman’s best-selling book The Five Love Languages, there are five ways to express and receive commitment and love, and everyone expresses them differently. This Spouse’s Day, sit down with your loved one and figure out each other’s Love Language to strengthen your bond and communication in the years to come.
The following are explanations of the various “languages“:
This love language, contrary to popular belief, is concerned with the thought and meaning that goes into giving and receiving gifts. The thought and significance of the present, no matter how large or small, makes this person feel valued and loved. The ceremony and action of giving and receiving gifts is as emotionally invested in this language as the gift itself. Often, something as simple as purchasing their favourite chocolate or selecting their favourite flower is sufficient to make a significant difference.
Rather than clock watching, this love language is about the quality moments spent together. If you have a demanding job or life commitments and can’t spare very much time, don’t stress. ‘Quality time’ individuals don’t necessarily need a lot of attention – just undivided attention. When giving and receiving this form of affection, it’s essential to be all-in. No phones ringing or texting, no TV (unless it’s part of the special moment), and definitely no guests – this one is all about one-on-one time. Cancelling dates, postponing meals and even running late can be very hurtful to people who subscribe to this language. So, always be aware of your time around ‘quality time’ people – it’s all about being present and fully engaged in the moment.
Words of affirmation
Words are used to express care and affection in this way of loving. This love language is defined by small expressions of appreciation and adoration. These people are motivated by statements like “thank you for cooking this delicious meal” or “you look amazing today.” Members who adhere to this way of love are happiest when people are open and expressive through conversation. Alternatively, these people may find it difficult to forgive hurtful words.
Acts of service
This love language is all about giving services. The emphasis is on taking care of something so that your partner does not have to. Acts such as paying your partner’s home insurance premium because you know he or she always forgets. A person who speaks this love language will appreciate you getting an online insurance quote because your partner doesn’t have the time. Doing something helpful or kind for these people is especially valued.
Holding hands, a back rub, a kiss, a hug, and sex are all significant expressions of love for people who speak this love language. Various levels of physical interaction with consent are required depending on the type of relationship. People who receive love in this way may feel isolated and unloved if they do not receive cuddles and other touch-based expressions of affection.
These are the various ways in which people express and receive love. Allow yourself and your partner to live happily ever after in your own way.
