We all know that love is a universal language, but it still feels so complicated at times.

As a self-help book junkie who, right now, has a simple desire to decode the magical feeling of love on a more practical level, I downloaded Gary Chapman’s book, ‘The 5 Love Languages: The Secret to Love That Lasts’. I raced through it in two days flat, completely absorbed so I could answer the questions honestly…

I found out a lot about myself, and what my love personality is. Like, I feel loved when people spend undivided quality time with me and that I also love love cuddling. There was more, but the real benefit I felt from reading this was that it helps my boyfriend understand what I mean when I say I feel like we haven’t hung out (even though we live together!).

The takeaway really is that, though love might be universal, everyone has their own personal love language. What do you think yours is?
