For 25 years, The 5 Love Languages® has been strengthening millions of relationships one language at a time. Author Dr. Gary Chapman explains these five languages in depth in his book, The Five Love Languages: The Secret to Love That Lasts, which is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year.
The five ways Dr. Chapman says people communicate are through
Receiving gifts: For some people, what makes them feel most loved is to receive a gift
Words of Affirmation: This language uses words to affirm other people.
Acts of Service: For these people, actions speak louder than words.
Quality time: This language is all about giving the other person your undivided attention.
Physical touch: For some, holding hands or sharing a kiss is the best way to feel affirmed.
