How We Express Our Love

Over the years, I have had many friends confide in me about their love lives. One of the themes is I don’t feel loved or I show them I love them, but they say I don’t.

For example, one person may show their love by doing small tasks for the other, while the other is dying to hear the words, “I love you.” My advice has always been to show your love in the way the other person is looking for it and if you think they aren’t showing their love for you, look in the places you haven’t been looking. Also, it is OK to ask the other person to show their love for you in the way you want: words, touch, little deeds, small gifts, etc.

There is now a book about this very topic. It is called The 5 Love Languages: The Secret to Love That Lasts. It is by Gary Chapman. I am sure there are more than five, but this is a good start. Here is the link to the book on Amazon: The 5 Love Languages: The Secret to Love That Lasts
