Date Info: Take the 5 Love Languages Quiz HERE, and Discuss ways to help each other feel more love
When we started Friday We’re in Love almost 11 years ago, I decided to publish a list of 101 date ideas we planned to do together to help inspire others to find their next fun date idea! This list has been used and loved by hundreds of thousands of people, which never ceases to blow my mind! One of the date nights we did early in our marriage was a 5 love languages date night.
5 Love Languages Quiz
Recently, we decided that a decade later it was time to refresh our memory and retake the free 5 Love Languages Quiz online and repeat this date night.
I was shocked to see that things have changed a bit for both of us! What we thought was our primary love languages and secondary love languages are a bit different a decade and two children later. I couldn’t believe it! And yet, as we spent a date night at home talking about the 5 Love Languages and our feelings at this phase of life, it made so much sense!
If you think you know yours, and your significant other’s love language, and it’s been more than a few years: you may want to take it again! I think it’s a fantastic date idea for newlyweds. But now I’m a firm believer it’s a fantastic date idea for a couple at any phase in their relationship!
If you need a refresher, here’s a summary of each love language.
5 Love Languages Summary
According to author and relationship expert Gary Chapman, there are five different love languages. People like to receive love in different ways. He argues we need all of these, but we have a primary and secondary love language that help us feel more love.
Spending time together with lots of dedicated attention.
This is everything aside from sexual touch. Think hand-holding, cuddling, (etc.) and being physically connected and affectionate.
Words of Affirmation
Speaking words of affection and expressing love and appreciation verbally.
Acts of Service
Doing service, big and small, to help out your partner and let them feel seen.
Giving gifts, big or small, show you are thinking of your partner and listening to their material wants and needs. Intentional and thoughtful gifts help those who have gifts as their love language feel more seen and more loved.
