The Love Languages theory comes from a guy who says there are five basic love languages that make people feel loved and appreciate aand they also use these languages to express love to other people. I forget all of them but some of them are Acts of Service, Words of Affirmation, Thoughtful Gifts. Basically while some people feel most loved when someone verbally expresses how special they are, another person may feel more appreciated if someone gives them flowers while another person might feel most loved if someone washes her car for her.

That's basically it, but I think for most people, it's more complex than that. Most things are a lot more complicated than the self-help writers make them out to be, but of course you already knew that. ;)


Personally, I can't figure out what the heck my "love language" is, or if I even have one. I just know that my son does, and I couldn't quite learn to speak it.

I regret not being frugal in college. If I had buckled down with a budget, I could have graduated with little or no debt instead of being stuck paying for things I didn't need.

I'm looking forward to having a clean financial slate, with no debt.

Yeah, I've done the quiz before, but people are so complex, it's really not possible to distill them into a simple formula that works for everyone.

I had to give up on the quiz. Either/or questions stump me, like "gifts or long walks?" Uhm, neither please. I find gifts awkward and too demanding and taking a long walk with dh is a special kind of torture (he is like a 3yo, walks slowly, looks at everything, whines if I walk too fast).

these assessments are similar to what we would take at a "marriage encounter weekend" our church sponsors, we talk about going but the timing just isn't right right now, maybe when our kids are older! :)

thak you for opening wider the OP, i didn't mean to apply the question only to parenting and our children.
