We all express our feelings of love in different ways. While we all have specific ways of expressing our love, Dr. Gary Chapman, author of The 5 Love Languages: The Secret To Love That Lasts, has nailed it down to five types of "love" languages we all express to some degree or extent. In case you're not familiar with all five love languages, here's some background on them. There's Words of Affirmation, where you show your love by giving your partner words that affirms them. There's Acts of Service; for this type of love language, actions speak louder than words. There's also Receiving Gifts, where you feel most loved when you receive gifts from your partner or you give gifts to them.
Second to last, there's Quality Time, where you give your person your undivided attention and feel most loved when they give you theirs. Lastly, there's Physical Touch, which doesn't necessarily mean sensual touch, but more of an appropriate touch, whether it be a light touch of your arm or hand holding.
Now that we've gone over what the five love languages are, you have a better understanding of how they pertain to his sign. If you really want to find out his top love language, as well as his bottom love language, there's no better way than to have him take the love language quiz.
