Love Languages

Following on from AJ's blog...I took the test for Love Languages.

Bizarrely my love languages seem to change over time. Once upon a time I was all about the Quality Time and the Gifts....but seems Toronto has turned me into a touchy feely, huggy kind of a person....or more so than I ever used to be. (Used to be...hug me, hug a tree...what's the difference?)

Back then I was all "Pah, Acts of Service - what a load of nonsense! Who shows love by putting the ironing board away? Just give me a gift you AOS freak"

And NOW, NOW I find I value the AOSsers more than the Gifters.

Can this be right!? Is this just because I seem almost incapable of doing anything for myself at the moment that AOS is right up my street?

Or perhaps Dave has brainwashed me into seeing the value of the AOS....?

But when Sarah sent me a parcel of goodies the other day I WEPT with joy as I felt so loved and understood. And that's gifts!

Guess I can only conclude that I officially an a greedy guts for all of the love languages.

Please feel free to tweak my earlobe, tell me what a lovely earlobe I have, spend time with my earlobe, buy me an earring for the earlobe....and then put the ironing board away.

It's all good.

The Five Love Languages

My primary love language is probably
Physical Touch
with a secondary love language being
Words of Affirmation.

Complete set of results

Physical Touch:  10
Words of Affirmation:  8
Quality Time:  5
Acts of Service:  4
Receiving Gifts:  2


Unhappiness in relationships, according to Dr. Gary Chapman, is often due to the fact that we speak different love languages. Sometimes we don't understand our partner's requirements, or even our own. We all have a "love tank" that needs to be filled in order for us to express love to others, but there are different means by which our tank can be filled, and there are different ways that we can express love to others.

Take the quiz

Um, yeah mine was touch, quality time, words of affirmation, and etc. I didn't take the other tests though. Do the toilets in NZ flow in the opposite direction?
