We meet so many good people in our life time, however there are only a select few our heart chooses romantically. Why is it so? What decides whom we like? Well, there is no straight answer to that.
This encompasses a lot of factors and no one, yet has been able to give a clear cut algorithm which gives us whom we shall love.
However, it has been proven time and again, that we get attracted to people who speak and understand love our way. There are countless ways we can show love to one another, however what clicks with you is dependent on how you interpret love. The ways in which people speak and understand love encompass their love language.
The secret to a long lasting happy relationship/marriage is understanding that the way I would desire to be loved could be different than yours –
“The secret my dear is to love others the way they desire to be loved, rather than the way you desire to be loved” – Wordions
Gary D. Chapman in his book “The 5 Love Languages” has very accurately described 5 types of love languages that most of us speak.
Speaking the right love language goes a long way in sustaining a relationship, any relationship for that matter not just the romantic ones.
Relationships fail, even between people who love each other, because we fail to understand this little secret.
“Maybe the answer to happiness is not in “Do you love me ?”, but in “Can you love me the way I desire to be loved”” – Wordions
