|Love language||What it means||Communication hits||Communication misses|
|words of affirmation||You appreciate compliments, encouragement, and supportive words.||They make statements like “I appreciate how much effort you put into planning this trip for us;” “You look adorable today;” or “I love how compassionate you are.”||They give insincere or disinterested compliments, assume you know that they love, appreciate, or are attracted to you without showing it.|
|quality time||You want your partner to set aside time to give you their undivided attention.||They stow the phone during meals or important conversations and join an activities you enjoy just to spend more time together.||They leave the room when you put your favorite show on, and fail to plan dates or weekends with your interests in mind.|
|receiving gifts||You feel loved when someone gives you thoughtful gifts, big or small.||Forget practical, popular, and pricey: they keep an eye out for little things that will make you feel special on any random day. They leave you little notes, pick up your favorite muffin from the bakery, surprise you with a new book on a Tuesday afternoon, etc.||They pick up last-minute gifts that don’t take much thought. They fail to put the time into finding out what you like.|
|acts of service||You want your partner to express love by doing you favors or handling chores and errands you don’t have time for.||They notice you’re swamped and take one thing off your plate (washing dishes, stopping by the post office, calling the plumber) without being asked.||You ask for help and they forget or begrudgingly comply. They get annoyed because you’re not taking care of everything yourself.|
|physical touch||Cuddles, kisses, hugs, and all that touchy-feely stuff makes you happy.||They start and end the day with a kiss, hug you when you get off work, hold your hand, or rub your neck while you watch tv.||They don’t offer to give you a massage when you’re extra stressed, pull away from affection, or don’t seem interested.|
