LAN­GUAGE OF LOVE

Simply Her (Singapore) - - Parents 101 -

Amer­i­can mar­riage ex­pert Gary Chap­man be­lieves there are five ways peo­ple ex­press love for one an­other. 1 Words of af­fir­ma­tion Aside from say­ing “I love you”, you also use words of praise and ap­pre­ci­a­tion. 2 Phys­i­cal touch Ev­ery­thing from hold­ing hands and hug­ging to kissing – and be­tween mar­ried cou­ples, mak­ing love. 3 Gifts Not to be con­fused with ma­te­ri­al­ism, the fo­cus is on the ef­fort and thought­ful­ness that go into the gift. 4 Acts of ser­vice When you help your loved ones to ease their bur­dens. 5 Qual­ity time Spend­ing time to­gether with your part­ner or loved one, and giv­ing them your un­di­vided at­ten­tion.
