When people fall in love and form a commitment, a two-way street of love and communication opens between them. The catch is that everyone receives and gives love differently. And when people’s styles differ, this two-way street can be more like two parallel one-way streets–never meeting, and always shrouded in mystery and frustration.
Take the couple in this video, for example. Each tries to show the other affection, yet each feels unattended to. Without communicating or understanding each other’s love languages, they will persistently feel like the other person isn’t interested (which really isn’t true!). All kinds of anxiety and resentment and wondering ensue.
Once he figures out that she just wants time and supportive words and once she learns that he just wants physical tokens of appreciation, they can finally express their love in a way that is received.
So before you jump to conclusions, communicate with and explore each other and you’ll hopefully find yourself on the same, blissful street.
The inspiration for the video comes from the book the 5 love languages.
