So it turns out, there are five languages of love.
Bren and I were chatting about it this morning. We agreed that Ziggy's language is Physical Touch and Luca's is Quality Time. I pointed out quite strenuously that mine is Receiving Gifts. Gifts.
Maybe this is the modern version of Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus but the concept resonates with me; the idea that communication fails in relationships because what each person considers to be an expression of love and appreciation can differ. Understanding what our partner/friend/child needs to feel valued is an important step in best communicating love to them. And vice versa.
"So which language do you think you are?" I asked Bren, my partner, my love.
"Headjobs," he replied.
"It was six languages, wasn't it?" he asked.
"No, just five, darling," I said, "I think maybe you mean Physical Touch."
"No, no. I mean headjobs. Just headjobs."
Perhaps if a lady received more gifts, they might be more inclined to give more….gifts, too.
Vote #1 for headjobs
Hahahahahahahahaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhaaaaahahaaahahhhhhhhhaaa! Nice, Bren! That’s too funny 😀
I just need sleep and a small dictator to be messin’ with me boosies less….
Where did that photo come from??? What a dufus. And hey, I bought you a ladle the other day….. at Christmas. A good one. What more do I have to do?
Ha ha! What a cracker…. I have recently been learning about the 5, repeat 5, love languages too. Didn’t read anything about that 6th!
Ha that sounds exactly like my hubby. He pulled out his old “need head” shirt the other night and was strutting around like a peacock. I said I need the washing up done too bit I doubt it will happen for me eeither…..
Ps – A ladle at Christmas? How sexy….
Love it…..definitely provided me with my morning giggle! Probably because I think your husband and my husband have the same love language
Ha ha ha. You make me laugh. And you do have a hunky man. Lucky you! Lucky him! xx
LOL. Too funny. I do love the Love Languages… will have to re-read my book to check up on the existence of #6 though 😉
