I went to a retreat this weekend with 26 women from church. It was called "Making Time for God, Spouse, Children, and Others." One of the best things I got out of it was the test in the link above. There are 5 "types" of showing your love for someone. One person may enjoy getting flowers while another hates flowers and would rather hear the words "I love you." One person may need to be told how much they're appreciated while another may just need to spend quality time alone with their spouse away from the kids (like a weekly "date night). By you and your spouse each taking this little quiz, you can find out how the other would most enjoy being loved.

We both ranked quality time pretty high (first and second). The problem is that we ranked words of affirmation and physical touch the opposite of each other. I like to be told that what I do is appreciated. He'd rather have touch. Guess we'll have to work on that because neither of us is any good at the other.

Score Love Language
8 Words of Affirmation
7 Quality Time
0 Receiving of Gifts
6 Acts of Service
9 Physical Touch


How to interpret your Profile Score:

Your highest score indicates your primary love language. Your second highest score indicates your secondary love
language. If two scores are identical, you are bilingual (you have two primary love languages). If the scores of your
primary and your secondary language are close (for example, 10 & 9 respectfully), it indicates both are important to
you. Whatever a significant other does to express love in either of these languages will get emotional points with you.
The highest possible score for any language is 12.

Having a clear picture of your primary & secondary love languages will explain much of your past behavior Think back
over the past and ask yourself "What have I most often requested from significant others?" Chances are your answer
will lie within the scope of your primary & secondary love languages. You have been requesting that which would meet
your deepest need for emotional love.

DH and I were almost exactly the same, both ranking quality time highest followed by physical touch. Interesting that we scored almost identical, I think it's one of the reasons that we are so close.
