The page doesn't seem to load. I think it might have been taken down.
I scored the full amount of points for Acts of Service, with Receiving Gifts second and the other three with terribly low scores. (Physical touch was the worst, I scored zero on that one!)
You know, this really makes sense. I respect people who DO instead of TALK. People say stuff all day long but until you put action behind it, it means nothing (to me anyway). The sad thing is... everyone else here seems to have the right parents for me! Cuz my parents are not Acts of Service. Most people don't seem to be.
Those phrases in the Acts of Service section are really spot on: "Making more work for an AoS person or broken promises tells the AoS person that they don't matter" or "Easing the burden of responsibilites on an AoS is a way of loving them".
I swear, people suck with this. I have a coworker and friend who heard that I had chronic insomnia all my life and he came up to me before he left work one day. He said that he had a bottle of vitamins or something that was good for sleep and he would bring it/give it to me. That shocked the crap out of me! I mean, who would ever do something that nice for me? Who would give me something? But, he forgot and never brought them or mentioned them again.
I would have rather him never even said a word than to have done that! Talk is so cheap. But, whatever. Story of my life.
As for all you Physical Touch peeps, I feel bad for you. I mean, it's hard to do anything in this day and age without it getting misinterpreted. Plus you have to wait for others to touch you/hug you sometimes. And people who's love language is not in their top two don't normally do things like that. (As I'm one of those people who will never voluntarily touch someone or sit close to them). But if it helps at all, people in this day and age are freaking lazy and self centered so just as you may have to wait days, weeks, years before someone hugs you/touches you, I have to wait years too.
Anyways, I hope you all find out your love languages and also notice the languages of the people around us so we can mend the brokenness in this world.
My first is quality time and my second is words of affirmation :)
I guess this is one small of hundreds of reasons I broke up with my boyfriend. I told him a million times, that when I try to hug him and he shrugs away I feel offended, abandoned and lonely. I mean, I would understand if he let me hug him and then say that he's not in the mood for it. At least, I would try.
I also guess this is the same reason that during a recent trip to a latino music night club, I - being caught up in a very provocative continuous dance with my colleague, and after a few drinks - started snogging him.
Gosh, he is such a jerk most of the time! You can barely stand him Too bad he is a good dancer and a touch oriented person.
