THE 5 LOVE LANGUAGES
WORDS OF AFFIRMATION
ACTS OF SERVICE
SAME LANGUAGE. DIFFERENT DIALECT
"After years of research, I have realized what a unique situation Dave and Mary presented me. Seldom do I meet a couple who both have the same love language - in this case, acts of service. But you may be wondering, Then why were they having so much difficulty? The answer lies in the fact that they were speaking different dialects. They were doing things for each other - but no the most important things. When Mary and Dave were forced to think concretely, they easily identified their specific dialects, and when they started speaking them, their love tanks began to fill." - "The 5 Love Languages - The Secret To Love That Lasts" by Gary Chapman, pg. 99 ¶ 3
SEX DIFFERENT FOR EACH SEX
"Marcus had made the mistake common to many men: assuming that physical touch is their primary love language because they desire sexual intercourse so intensely. For the male, sexual desire is physically based. That is, the desire for sexual intercourse is stimulated by the buildup of sperm cells and seminal fluid in the seminal vesicles. When the seminal vesicles are full, there is a physical push for release. Thus, the male's desire for sexual intercourse has a physical root.
For the female, sexual desire is far more influenced by her emotions. If she feels loved and admired and appreciated by her husband, then she has a desire to be physically intimate with him. But without the emotional closeness, she may have little physical desire. Her biological sexual drive is closely tied to her emotional need for love." - "The 5 Love Languages - The Secret To Love That Lasts" by Gary Chapman, pg. 121 ¶ 1, 2

“The 5 Love Languages” by Gary Chapman is one of those books that I will continue to reference (especially now that I’ve finally read it); the points are just so practical and lovable! I really think that if you are in a relationship or even if you are budding as a youth and wanting to start your relationship history off right, this is the book for you. You can get your own copy and let me know what you think of it when you’re done!
