Valentines Day

Valentines Day is taunted as the day of love. I often wonder who made that decision, and why can’t every day be the day of love for someone you care about?

Every February 14th, people are buying flowers, candy and stuff animals. I don’t want to be a cynic but flowers die, candy gives you cavities,and the stuff animals collect dust. How about just spending time with your loved one and enjoy creating a meal and watching a movie? Simple huh? Or be creative and think of your own activity, the goal is to be loving and attentive, with or without gifts.

Everyone has a different love language and for healthy relationships it is wise to understand your partners love language, instead of trying to guess. Couples who have been together for many years, still may not know their partners love language. Many women love gifts, and men usually like touch, but this is not always true. Take the quiz below to find out your love language and share it with your partner, you maybe surprised.

  1. Great advice!! I found that communicating with my partner and even my kids with their love language showed them more how much I love them rather me doing what I would do for me.
