I just read The Five Love Languages. What is my love language? Physical Touch. Now, let's not be dirty here. Physical touch can be as simple as laying a hand on a shoulder or holding hands. In order for me to feel loved I need that physical touch.
So, what is the problem with that? The person I need to physically touch me is gone all the time! Steve says that when I am gone, our dog, Cali, can give me that physical touch. We think Cali's love language is also physical touch. Still...I think not!
The book really is neat, and I think that a lot of couples should read it, especially if you speak different love languages. This all started with the shoe situation. Steve was REALLY upset that I didn't put the shoes away, and you know why? His love language is acts of service. The fact that I wasn't putting the shoes away meant that I wasn't showing my love for him.
You will all be happy to know that my shoes have been organized ever since!
