09 Dec A Guide to Love Languages | Scoop Sorority
In a time where we might feel more distant from even our closest friends than ever, it’s important to understand how our close relationships work.
One way that can improve your own with your romantic partner and close friends is understanding your love languages.
If you’re new to this, don’t worry- that’s what we’re here for. If you don’t know your own, you can take the quiz, or read on and find yourself on this list.
Words of Affirmation
This language is about… language! Kind words, encouraging notes, a little “thinking of you” text.
If this is your love language, you probably feel compelled to shower your friends and lovers with compliments and reassurance- a shoulder to cry on and a cheerleader all at once. If this is your partner, it’s likely they want to hear those words back.
Acts of Service
This is a common love language for the guys- showing your love by helping others out.
Your friend who helps you move, who comes over in the middle of the night to help you study is likely speaking the language of service. If this is your partner, don’t be shy about accepting help- they’re just trying to tell you they love you.
This language is all giving- gifts, that is. Those with this love language have their Christmas shopping done by June, they’re constantly finding things that remind them of their partners, and have a knack for putting thought into the littlest things.
They’re the ones putting together loving care packages for their friends in lockdown and finding crafts to do to make their friends feel less alone right now.
This language is all about the late-night car rides, the movie marathons, the cute and simple dates, and wandering walks.
Those that love in this language are content to say being around their loved ones is more than enough. They have no need for small chatter or anything to do, they’re happy to have the company of their close ones with them.
The language of physical touch is for the long huggers and hand-holders.
They’re unafraid and unashamed to be physically affectionate to their partners and besties. If you know somebody who loves like this, send them some love right now, in your own language- the touch starvation is real.
