THE key to a healthy relationship is speaking each other’s “love language,” experts say.
They identified five—words of affirmation, spending time together, giving, service, and physical touch.
A study of 100 couples who had been together for up to 24 years found that satisfaction was associated with meeting both their own and a partner’s “love language” needs.
Researcher Olha Mostova from the University of Warsaw in Poland said: “People differ both in the way they express affection and in the way they want to receive it.”
She continued, “This hypothesis involves five different love languages: words of affirmation, spending time together, giving, service, and physical touch.
“Despite its popularity, the concept of love languages remains relatively underexplored.”
The survey asked participants, ages 17 to 58, to complete a questionnaire using questions developed in previous love language studies.
The team then rated participants’ preferred love languages to use when expressing love to their partner.
This would show which love languages from their partner make them feel loved the most.
Their analysis found that men and women with better relationships and more sexual satisfaction had used love languages.
