In his own words, here's how Chapman breaks... - Deepstash

In his own words, here's how Chapman breaks down the five love languages in his book:

The five languages are pretty straightforward, but here's a brief description of what each of them mean:

  • Words of affirmation : Expressing affection through spoken affection, praise or appreciation.
  • Acts of service : Actions, rather than words, are used to show and receive love.
  • Receiving gifts : Gifting is symbolic of love and affection.
  • Quality time : Expressing affection with undivided, undistracted attention.
  • Physical touch : It can range from having sex to holding hands. With this love language, the speaker feels affection through physical touch.

The 5 Love Languages

The 5 Love Languages is the concept, from Dr. Gary Chapman, that there are five different ways of communicating love.

The 5 Love Languages are:

  • Words of Affirmation
  • Quality Time
  • Receiving Gifts
  • Acts of Service
  • Physical Touch

People express love differently, and they have different ways they want to receive love. So, some of these languages may speak more to us than others.
