In keeping with yesterday's theme of who I am & my personality, I thought I'd share with you today my Love Language results. The results weren't really surprising to me when I took the quiz. 12 is the highest that you can score in any category.
Here are my results:
11 Quality Time
So what does that mean? Here are the explanations for my two highest categories.
In Quality Time, nothing says “I love you” like full, undivided attention. Being there for this type of person is critical, but really being there—with the TV off, fork and knife down, and all chores and tasks on standby—makes you feel truly special and loved. Distractions, postponed activities, or the failure to listen can be especially hurtful. Whether itʼs spending uninterrupted time talking with someone else or doing activities together, you deepen your connection with others through sharing time.
Words of Affirmation
Actions don’t always speak louder than words. If this is your love language, unsolicited compliments mean the world to you. Hearing the words, “I love you,” are important— hearing the reasons behind that love sends your spirits skyward. Insults can leave you shattered and are not easily forgotten. You thrive on hearing kind and encouraging words that build you up.
My results were basically what I expected. Getting to spend time with people I care about is more important to me than anything. Especially when it's one on one & uninterrupted. The number of times I've gotten annoyed because I feel like someone is elsewhere when we're together or have been bailed on (for both legitimate & non-legitimate reasons) is up there. Same goes for words of affirmation. Sure little gifts are nice. As is having someone help you out. However, I pretty much just need to be told, & reminded, point blank how you feel about me. Just tell me, & tell me often.
