In case you don’t know, there are 5 Love Languages: Words of Affirmation, Quality Time, Acts of Service, Receiving Gifts, and Physical Touch. It’s so important to know what your love language is, as well as your partner’s, because it’s crucial to know that not everyone loves the same.

What you define as an expression of love is most likely not the same expression as your partner. You probably love your partner in the way you need love. However, since their love language is not the same as yours, their love tank is really low. This just leads to an unhappy relationship.

Even though I write a lot about relationships here on my blog, I am by no means a relationship expert. I’m constantly learning and growing. Plus, I usually only get to talk about things from my perspective.
