Love Language

How do you spell love quote by A.A. Milne

My husband does not remember birthdays or anniversaries. He is not a giver of flowers or fancy chocolate. He does however, fill the gas in my car when it’s running low because he knows that I don’t have time to do that. He goes out of his way to get me my favorite brand of ice cream. He looks after our boys on weekends so I can have some ‘me’ time. He works very hard to ensure that we live a comfortable life. That is my husband’s love language.

I am a rememberer of birthdays, anniversaries and any other special occasion. I am a gift giver and a greeting card sender. I am a memory keeper. I take photographs of my children, of life’s milestones, and everyday joys. I write in my blog about what motherhood means to me, and document my children’s milestones and daily shenanigans. That is my love language. 

My oldest is nearly 4, and speech delayed. I’m not sure if he understands what”I love you” means. Even through all the challenges that come with a speech delay, my son is loving and affectionate. He greets us in the morning with a cheery “Hi!”. He cares for his little brother very much, and takes his hand when we go out. He hugs with wild abandon. He’s my cuddler and snuggler. That is his love language.

My littlest doesn’t like to take my hand when we walk together (except his brother’s). He doesn’t always enjoy his brother’s over-boisterous hugs. He does however, like to back up and sit down on my lap when we’re on the floor together. When he’s tired, he puts his head on my shoulder. He kisses with enthusiasm. He dances when the music comes on, and even when it ends, because he loves making us smile. That is his love language. 

It doesn’t have to be said all the time. It doesn’t have to be shown with presents or flowers or cards. It doesn’t have to be dramatic. Your love language can be made up of the tiniest things – it is in the way he rests his hand gently on the small of your back. It is in the way she cuts off the crusts on your sandwich. It is in the look in their eyes when they see you in the morning. It is in the hugs they give you before they go to sleep. That, is love language.

What is your love language?

    incredibly sweet post Alison. What is my love language? Hmm, I think my family could answer that better than me. I surely do forget my anniversary, every year, Even now I can’t tell you if it’s the 4th or 6th of august. wow, i bite. I am a big hugger, I can tell you that for sure. :-D

  • December 9, 2013 Allie

    Of course my love language is similar to yours. I’m a doer, a writer, a card sender, a capturer of memories. I used to tell my husband all the time – don’t tell me you love me, SHOW me. He has and he does (now!) but I think it’s important what you’ve expressed here; just because others don’t share our love language, we can appreciate and acknowledge theirs. Another great one my friend!

    I think my love language is the same as your, and my husband is more like your husband. I’ve been meaning to read that book, because this was a big discussion in my book club last year. I’m fascinated by how we all show our love differently and being aware of the different love languages is so important for harmony.

    Pooh bear is a wise little fella! Love that quote. And LOVE this post. There are so many different ways to show love. I’m definitely the gift giver in our family. My husband is the tickle monster. Right now my oldest shows her love in the hug-you-until-you-are-gasping-for-air variety while the little one likes to lay the sweetest, sloppiest kisses on both cheeks and then your nose. Makes me want to scoop them both up in a huge bear hug and never let go.

    Oh this post is so sweet. I’ve learned a lot about love languages in the past few years, and how they can all vary so greatly. I have two love languages. Acts of Service and Affirmation. I just want to know that I am valued… I know, it sounds so narcissistic… but that’s what makes me feel loved. My littlest also does the back up into my lap. I love that!

    I like the way Des hugs. He actually puts pressure in them, as he walks to me. And walking is his love language because he didn’t do it until 16 months so we were so freakin’ happy when it happened, that each time got a standing ovation. So now he expects it. Each time! Which is all day, every day!
    Anyway. My husband isn’t very showy with emotions, but he will fill the car with gas and he always brings me my favorite gelato so it sounds like he could be similar to yours.

    This is so beautiful. My daughter’s love language is all actions and gifts – she will make you a card, or write you a poem, or occasionally give you a hug when she is having a really deep emotional moment, but those hugs and kisses are hard to come by.

    I spell LOVE lots of ways..a card, a hug, a conversation that takes 2 minutes than it should but I want that person to feel heard.
    My husband is a talker and doer. He doesn’t forget special days, but he also makes sure the car has been vacuumed and gassed up for me. He is the best of both worlds (most days)

    and my sons…wow, the love that flows out of them. Saying it, doing it, meaning it. All the time. It’s like they are little me’s and I love seeing them care and love other people.

    I needed this post today, in the middle of this nightmare I’m in , I found this refreshing and comforting.

    My love language is acts of service. When my husband helps out in some unexpected way, it nearly brings me to tears. Acts of service is the love language I most easily give, because it is so meaningful to me. Malone is a cuddler, hugger, and snuggler- his love language is physical touch, hands down. Mike’s love language is quality time. We’re all different. It makes me wonder with Lola’s will be.

    • December 11, 2013 Alison

      Acts of service is beautiful and awesome!

  • December 10, 2013 Michelle

    My husband is not usually a gift giver or even a date rememberer either. But he helps out around the house and does so much for our kids. For me, I’d have to say I show my love with photos. I’ve documented and written and our house is covered with love on the walls and in books.

    I loved reading this, Alison.

    I suppose my love language is in my actions (much like your husband’s). I don’t really do the cards and gifts thing all the time, but I tend to go out of my way to help my husband in little things that will hopefully make his day better. I think my husband is a gifter. He probably gives me more than I’ve given him, both for occasions and for random days. I love it though; I’m amazed when he puts so much thought into the gifts.

    There you go again, Alison, making me think. I suppose my love language is in the form of words. I tell people how I feel about them. I have a difficult time keeping any feeling a secret, really. My husband gives his love in the form of laughs and smiles. He makes me laugh. I love that (most of the time).

    This is a great question to ponder. One of my love languages is compliments- affirmation. I think my love language is more like your husbands, a little less-planned. I have a hard time getting my act together for holidays and birthdays, but like to be thoughtful at random times.

    There are many times I’ve felt I’m like you. Some stuff among those could be a girl thing, like the greeting cards, memory keeper role. I’m like that. During our engagement, it was I who wrote lovey-dovey notes to my husband on paper that I thread painted to make a watermark background, n all that. Yeah, I’m like that – dwell in detail and creativity, eager to ‘show’ in many ways that I love and all that. My husband on the other hand is like yours – showing his love in day to day acts rather than in a capsule such as a card or a poem or flowers. On the flowers…sigh! will write about it soon :)

  • December 10, 2013 erin margolin

    the part about your son not speaking much yet? only saying “Hi!” enthusiastically, but loves cuddles and snuggles? that’s our Piper, too. it’s so hard. she blows kisses, she hugs and pats. she smiles… BIG! but i long to hear a real sentence. especially more than once on a random day (and then haven’t heard it again since, sad face) three blue moons ago.

    sometimes i wonder what my love language is. i’m beginning to think it’s nagging. yelling. snapping. because my regular language is boring or not heard or not interesting or not cool.

    and my husband’s love language is money, pretty much.
    my love language, i like to think (other than the nagging, the blogging/writing/documenting kids’ lives, etc) is giving. giving to others. and teaching my kids as i/we do so.

    otherwise? i guess my voice is pretty quiet. my language feels…. empty somehow. or lost. or broken.

    and i love you.
    and your writing has moved me again, as always.

    • December 11, 2013 Alison

      Erin, your love language is NOT all those things. Let me tell you what it is, from what I gather…

      It’s being supportive of your friends. It’s sharing your words and heart. It’s being there for people you love. That is your love language. xoxo

  • December 10, 2013 Adrienne

    I admit there is a part of me that craves verbal praise. I have a disturbing need to know that I’m doing a good job. That can be hard sometimes, b/c my husband is like your husband. His love language is giving to me through real life stuff like ya know, a paycheck or making a gummi bear run when I’m not pregnant, or decorating my little man’s cake yesterday! That right. He decorated it. Wait until you see it! It’s in drafts with much talk about my hubby, so this is a timely topic.

    He’s not a talker. In the end, I’d take his actions over words any day! ;)

    I love this post Alison! It’s so true, we each show and expressive love differently. Like you, I am the rememberer of birthdays and events, I keep a calendar and link it to my boyfriends so he’s up-to-date and we’re in sync. He doesn’t do gifts, but he’s been doing that with me which I greatly appreciate. He does take care of me when I’m sick, drives all the time since I’m usually exhausted (and would do so when I lived 2 hours away so I wouldn’t have to – he’d spend the night and then go to work 2 hours away the next morning just so I wouldn’t have to), and even now he’s working 2 jobs to help pay me free up some income and pay off some stuff so we can ‘breath’ a bit, so I don’t have to take on a 2nd job or side gigs. He takes my son to school and gets him whatever he needs without hesitation and there’s nothing more adorable than seeing both my nerds on the computer playing video games (for a specified amount of time). My son is the best and he gives me hugs and kisses until this day, even though he’s 6 and they usually don’t at this age, he loves holding my hand still and is getting better at asking how my day was after school when I pick him up. Both my boys allow me to nap when I need once a day since i have a sleep disorder and it’s part of my management technique. I’m a very lucky lady and so are you! Have a great one! -Iva

    I love this: “He hugs with wild abandon.” :-)

    My love language – the way I feel loved – is through touch (appropriate touch, of course). I have some friends who are naturals at hugs, back rubs – things like that. And I just soak it in. And the other way I feel loved is when someone serves me. I can get overwhelmed easily so when people help with my dishes or just do little thoughtful acts of service, I feel so loved.

    The easiest and most pleasurable way for me to give love is to a) cook for people, and b) listen to people attentively. I can do other things, like service or spending time together (oddly enough it’s not as easy as listening to people), but I don’t enjoy it the same way. It costs me to do it.

    I love this. Love languages are so important to focus on because it can be easy to think that love isn’t happening if it isn’t in your language. Realizing that our family does love, even if it is different than the way we love is key for a healthy family.

    As for me, I’m a words of affirmation and acts of service girl. My husband is a gift giver and he feels love through touch.

    Oh, my my, how I love this. Our love language? My daughters, each on her own, has selected a mark on my body. One’s favorite is a freckle on my shoulder, another the mole on the edge of my waist, and my oldest, the hollow in my neck. They touch these places on me to soothe and ground themselves. And my love language, it’s laughing with them, getting down low and deep in the sand or leaves, and playing. My way is in staying fluent in the language of play.

    Thank you for this reminder.

    This one warms my heart. My husband has a similar love language to your husband. Sometimes he get’s me a card, sometimes he doesn’t. He doesn’t plan romantic dates. But he gets me gas, and oil changes, and puts jumper cables and a first aid kit in my car. I’m a mix, I think. I often say it. I love to use words. But I also try to be the person that steps up when you need help. I like to show up when I’m needed, even if I can’t be there all the time. I think the important thing is to recognize love in others. So often we get frustrated because we think the other person isn’t showing us love. But they are. In their own way.

    I am a gift giver. I love to think of the perfect gift for someone and see the joy received when opened. I also love words of affirmation. BUT, my husband is neither of these. Funny how that works out, isn’t it? He is a total “touch” guy and it took is a little bit to figure this out!! But once we did it totally made sense to the both of us and we saw what each of us had been trying to do the whole time.

    I think knowing your love language as well as the love language of others is important, so I really enjoyed this post. My love language is definitely through affection and words. My husband’s language is rarely verbalized and speaks louder through actions. It’s funny how we frequently pick a partner whose love language is different than our own. Does that make us bilingual? Also, I love that your husband fills your gas tank. Isn’t that just the best?

    Words are definitely my love language, for both giving and receiving. I’ve been researching a lot about love languages lately, so I’m so happy you wrote this! Probably one of the best posts I’ve read this week so far.

    I am not married to a romantic, sentimental guy, either. My love language is acts of service – I cook dinner almost every night for my family (and I am obsessive about finding the perfect recipe for various homemade snacks) because I love them and I want them to have healthy food to keep them going.

    Yes. This.
    Love is felt. It’s the gestures, not the gifts, that make us feel loved. Sure we all make mistakes like forgetting important dates and not wanting to hold hands, but all of those little things, trump those mistakes.
    My love language is the quiet.
    When there is no awkwardness in the silence, you feel the love without saying a single word. Love does all the talking.
