    I am definitely Quality Time, with Physical Touch as a distant second - I only touch people I am very comfortable and familiar with, and I don't do so very often, so to me the act of devoting my time to discussing things with someone and initiating physical contact with someone are both very important indicators of my affection.

    I have been reading the 5 love languages book and I have come to the conclusion that Acts of Service is definitely not my first love language and is the last one. I was confusing it with other things. That is why is good to read the book to clear your doubts. I haven't finished the book yet but my first love language is defitenely "Quality Time" and I am thinking that "Receiving Gifts" is my second but not sure. I think my third is Physical Touch and then Words of Affirmation. I need to finish the whole book to be sure of the order.

    I though that choosing "Receiving Gifts" was a little materialistic but it doesn't have to do with that. I realized that I value gifts a lot and they make me happy. It could be a simple gesture what matters is the intention.

    My parents love language is definitely acts of service specially my father. I think is important too but I don't find it so romantic.

    One year my mother forgot to get me birthday presents and I didn't care. I don't think gifts is my primary language.
    My primary languages are Physical Touch and quality time... Which is weird because I would never touch a friend, or ask for a hug.
    It's probably because you can't be sure whether it would be misinterpreted, a tonne of guys don't feel comfortable hugging other guys, and besides I will go out of my way to not make anyone feel uncomfortable.
    Quality time is a funny one too, I've abandoned everyone I know as I haven't kept up connections with others since leaving Highschool, and I haven't made new ones. I never did try to do stuff with others after school... And now to do so requires an effort I'm finding that I've left it too long to take up the initiative.
    I'm great at making aquaintances, but terrible at making intimate relationships much like some extroverts.

    This is great! :D
    I'm a quality time person with physical touch coming a close second :3

    Physical touch is a bit of a funny one though, I love it when someone touches me (keep your minds out of the gutter please)
    but I don't go around invading other peoples personal space... kinda hard to show that one sometimes with out being too 'touchy-feely'

    I realized that I don't care much about gifts either. I appreciate them but I don't demand receiving gifts all the time. A simple cake for my birthday is enough. I took the quizz from the book and it makes sense now. The first one is Words of Affirmation then comes Physical Touch and the the last ones are Quality Time, Acts of Service and Receiving Gifts.

    Now I have it figure it out :)

    10 QualityTime, 6 WordsOfAffirmation, 3 Gifts, 7 ActsOfService and 4 PhysicalTouch!

    From the Ok!Cupid test.

    I feel pretty loved if given any one of these things, even though I scored low on some. I think I'm pretty well balanced.

    But you guys don't even know how much someone sharing something personal with me, one on one, matters to me. Or just being there, you know?

    Awesome posts, I'm a bit of an advocate of the love languages. It really helps you understand yourself and others' needs. Eg. You don't get offended when someone doesn't express love the way you want them to because to them it doesn't say, "I love you."

    I'm a big time gifts person. If I love someone, I will give them a gift because even though I may know the person won't care all that much, to me it's as if saying I don't love them if I don't give them the gift and I can't live with that. A gift to me says I was thought about, valued enough to go out and do something (buy/make/organize a gift) and simply makes me know I'm acknowledged and seen.

    Quality time comes next, then words.

    Acts of service is great but I don't feel 'loved.' I just think you do it cos it's the right and good thing to do, well that's why I do a lot of service and I guess I put my motivation onto other people when they do their acts when I shouldn't because it really means something to them. That's why I like the languages cos you can get this about people- we don't think the same.

    And poor old physical touch. I score zero, can't stand the stuff. Personal space people. Haha. But when I'm with friends who I know is a personal touch type, I'm totally okay with it and actually feel loved because I know their motivation.

    Basically helps to understand the languages to avoid misunderstandings, neglect, arguments and feelings of lovelessness.
