If you haven’t heard of The 5 Love Languages by Gary Chapman, prepare to have your life changed. The book was originally published in 1995 and continues to be relevant over 20 years later for couples and individuals around the globe.
Basically, everyone has a primary love language (which can be found by taking this quiz) and it’s the channel through which the person best receives love — whether it’s through words of affirmation or spending quality time.
