What I say:
I decided to read The 5 Love Languages as my first book on my Kobo! I heard about this book from a guy I dated last fall. He shared the website with me where you can take a quiz to discover your love languages. I was still healing from my last relationship so I’m not sure I really answered about what I need to feel loved or if I answered based on all the bad things that had just happened to me. I think it was a mixture.
The goal of the book is to show couples (at any phase of their relationship) that by simply learning how to speak their partners love language that a relationship can thrive and flourish. The analogy of the gas tank and the love tank that needs to be kept filled is great.
After finishing the book last week I went back to the website and tried the quiz again. My primary love language is Quality Time 🙂
