The Five Love Languages
The five love languages have been a popular topic on social media recently. Teens and young adults on different social channels have been educating themselves on how to strengthen healthy relationships through learning their partner’s, friends, and family member’s love languages.
The Five Love Languages: How to Express Heartfelt Commitment to Your Mate is a book which was published in 1992 by Gary Chapman which explains five general ways through which people tend to express and experience love, which the author deems as “love languages”. Everyone experiences and shows love differently, and relationships grow better when you communicate and understand how the other person gives and receives love. This is not limited to romantic partners, rather it is essential for all types of relationships – for parents, friends, colleagues, children, and so forth. The five love languages are words of affirmation, acts of service, receiving gifts, quality time, and physical touch, each representing a way in which people tend to perceive the idea of love.
