Love, Love, Love!!!

A four letter word which means everything: LOVE. This connotes happiness and everything positive in between. When you hear it,  it's like angels are singing melodiously around you and it's quite infectious because you're singing by yourself too. As my morning ritual in the office, I go and check Ms. Jane's blog, Sugar, Spice and Everything Nice. Again, she didn't disappoint. Well, she's always consistent of bringing her readers and supporters to a whole new level of entertainment that I couldn't afford to miss. She talked about The 5 Love Languages, a book she read. This interest me because there's an online quiz link (here's the link to her post) that she provided so that we, her readers, could actually experience and see for ourselves what our primary love language are. Below is the result of the quiz that I got. And here is the detailed explanation of my primary love language.

As you could see my highest love language is Acts of Service: 

Acts of Service

Can vacuuming the floors really be an expression of love? Absolutely! Anything you do to ease the burden of responsibilities weighing on an “Acts of Service” person will speak volumes. The words he or she most want to hear: “Let me do that for you.” Laziness, broken commitments, and making more work for them tell speakers of this language their feelings don’t matter. Finding ways to serve speaks volumes to the recipient of these acts.

Well, of course, for me feelings also matters a lot. But it's not about feelings or romance alone, but being able to address my needs like simple task at the house means a lot too. Gone were the days that women are assigned to do the house chores and the men are solely for work purposes. Today we live in the generation where men and women are equal.

The second to the last rank and the last of my language of love is the Physical Touch and Receiving gifts. It doesn't mean that I don't need to be touched or anything for that matter. It's actually I am given by my husband a lot of that everyday. I am way too satisfied of how he gives me that. That is sweet of him since knowing him, he is not the "showy" or "touchy"type of person. Well as for the receiving gift, I don't expect him to give me gifts out of nothing. I've learned to deal with that and I realized that there are more important factors to consider than receiving gifts. Of course, I'll be happy if he give me things out of his desire to give. That is so sweet of him to be thoughtful and generous.

Overall, this type of quiz helps us realize what we lack to give our partners and the one to be addressed. It is by this quiz that we ought to put the missing piece in our puzzle of love and to be able to keep the love alive as a couple and to satisfy each others needs.
