Most of us have run into the life quizzes posted on social media advertised to combat boredom. With titles such as, “How your zodiac sign predicts your love life”,
and “ Tell us your Chinese food order, and we’ll guess which generation you belong to”, most of us know these quizzes do nothing more than entertain us on a slow Tuesday afternoon.
However, in the spirit of Valentine’s Day, we’ve suggested a quiz that will not only quell your boredom but will provide you insight into creating a healthy love life.
Knowing your love language is an important tool that may help you recognize how you perceive and demonstrate love to others.
It may also help you understand where the potential disconnect is between you and your partner.
If your partner has a different love language, and associates love in different ways than you do, both individuals may end up feeling unimportant and unappreciated.
This is not because the people in the relationship don’t love each other, but because their individual and unique needs are not being met.
It is not simply a lack of love, but instead, a lack of communication.
This is why having an understanding of how not only you perceive love, but how your partner does, is important to creating a relationship that fosters emotional satisfaction and congruence. For this reason, we suggest completing this quiz with your partner.
Once you have both received your results, engaging in open communication about your unique love languages may lead to discourse that will help you and your partner better understand each other. This may contribute to a healthy relationship in which each partner feels loved, appreciated, and validated.
