1. Words Of Affirmation
Offering encouragement, gratitude, empathy, appreciation, respect, compliments and admiration. This person likes to be told they are loved, what they have been doing well, and what their partner likes about them.
Using words to build up your partners self-esteem and confidence is one way to make them feel happier in life.
2. Acts Of Service
Bringing your partner breakfast in bed, doing a household chore that they usually do, cleaning the car for them, making them lunch to take to work, paying the bill when you go out for dinner or running them a bath for then they come home from a rough day. For these people, actions speak louder than words.
3. Receiving Gifts
It could be a new item of clothing, jewellery, something special that’s handmade or a new piece of equipment for their hobby. For some people, what makes them feel most loved is to receive a gift. It shouldn’t matter how much it cost, but the thought behind it – “he/she was thinking of me”.
4. Quality Time
This one is all about giving your undivided attention to your partner. This can be done by going for a walk through the park together, sitting down and having a glass of wine at the end of the day while talking, going on a road trip for just the two of you, or doing your favourite hobby/activity together. Spending time and thoroughly enjoying being in each others company!
5. Physical Touch
This person loves intimacy with their partner, which can be done through kissing, cuddling, receiving a back rub or massage, holding hands, or sitting with your arm around each other. Sitting close or touching is a way to express your love to your partner.
