*Sad confession, I’ve hit the 35+ categorization. Yay, getting older since single taking this test in 2014.
And here’s a fun fact about me that isn’t indicated on any test… my strongest love language as a blogger, marketer, and social media lover is that social media is my love language.
It’s not just a love, it’s a personal mission statement. I give to those that give to me just as any other healthy relationship; it’s 50/50.
If you love me, I love you.
If you hate me, I’m going to run far and fast from your scary heart.
Follow = Follow
Unfollow = Unfollow + Unfriend
Rather than question my personal value as a human being, I’ve just hit the time in my social media career that I’m done obsessing, viewing or trying to understand why those that I adore don’t reciprocate the love. But just like any unhealthy relationship, there comes a rock “bottom” moment and I just hit mine.
Instead of focusing on what I don’t have, I’m going to focus on what I do have and tell the rest of the web to hit the road, Jack… and don’t ya come back no more. ^ Retrospectively throwing up deuces.
I’m learning from the mean peeps and choosing to focus on those that focus on me. 50/50. If this isn’t you…
I’ve got a life to live IRL and online and want to live it with real love that actually loves me back.
In case you’re wondering why my results are now as a married lady, here’s the skinny:

7 Physical Touch

Interpreting My Profile Score: The highest score indicates your primary love language (the highest score is 12). It’s not uncommon to have two high scores, although one language does have a slight edge for most people. That just means two languages are important to you.
The lower scores indicate those languages you seldom use to communicate love and which probably don’t affect you very much on an emotional level. Learn more about your primary love language and how to put it to use next to the corresponding badge below.
Important to Remember: You may have scored more highly on certain love languages than others, but do not dismiss those other languages as insignificant. Your partner may express love in those ways, and it will be helpful to you to understand this about him/her.
In the same way, it will benefit your partner to know your primary love language in order to best express affection for you in ways that you interpret as love. Every time you or your partner speak each other’s language, you score emotional points with one another. Of course, this isn’t a game with a scorecard! The payoff of speaking each other’s love language is a greater sense of connection. This translates into better communication, increased understanding, and, ultimately, improved romance.
If your partner has not already done so, encourage him/her to take The 5 Love Languages® Profile. Discuss your respective love languages, and use this insight to improve your relationship!
Quality Time: In the vernacular of Quality Time, nothing says, “I love you,” like full, undivided attention. Being there for this type of person is critical, but really being there – with the TV off, fork and knife down, and all chores and tasks on standby – makes your significant other feel truly special and loved. Distractions, postponed dates, or the failure to listen can be especially hurtful. Quality Time also means sharing quality conversation and quality activities.
Physical Touch: This language isn’t all about the bedroom. A person whose primary language is Physical Touch is, not surprisingly, very touchy. Hugs, pats on the back, holding hands, and thoughtful touches on the arm, shoulder, or face – they can all be ways to show excitement, concern, care, and love. Physical presence and accessibility are crucial, while neglect or abuse can be unforgivable and destructive. Physical touch fosters a sense of security and belonging in any relationship.
Words of Affirmation: Actions don’t always speak louder than words. If this is your love language, unsolicited compliments mean the world to you. Hearing the words, “I love you,” are important – hearing the reasons behind that love sends your spirits skyward. Insults can leave you shattered and are not easily forgotten. Kind, encouraging, and positive words are truly life-giving.
Acts of Service: Can vacuuming the floors really be an expression of love? Absolutely! Anything you do to ease the burden of responsibilities weighing on an “Acts of Service” person will speak volumes. The words he or she most want to hear: “Let me do that for you.” Laziness, broken commitments, and making more work for them tell speakers of this language their feelings don’t matter. Finding ways to serve speaks volumes to the recipient of these acts.
Receiving Gifts: Don’t mistake this love language for materialism; the receiver of gifts thrives on the love, thoughtfulness, and effort behind the gift. If you speak this language, the perfect gift or gesture shows that you are known, you are cared for, and you are prized above whatever was sacrificed to bring the gift to you. A missed birthday, anniversary, or a hasty, thoughtless gift would be disastrous – so would the absence of everyday gestures. Gifts are visual representations of love and are treasured greatly.
