Here's the Questions:
- How do you know when you're loved?
- How do you show love?
- Deeds and Favours. (Goldfish)
- Words of approval. (Dog)
- Physical contact. (Cat)
- Quality time. (Budgie)
To give you an example, physical contacts can be expressed with the behaviors of cats.
Cats are almost exclusively creatures of physical contact.
You don't really have to feed them, if a cats hungry they'll kill something.
Cats don't really pay attention to what you say.
Cats just want to be rubbed and scratched. That is how they feel loved.
How does a cat express love?
By rubbing against you. Touch me! Love me! They're saying.
Some people cannot "speak", "cater" or even understand all of these different dialects of love.
It's never to late to learn and understand however, otherwise you'll have to hope you find someone who loves like you.
I believe when in a new relationship everyone expresses all of these quality of love, but eventually you're left loving how you want to be loved, and if that's you saying "I love you" and them not believing because you don't spend quality time with them, then it's not really working.
I've thought about it long and hard and I've decided I can give love in all of these dialects,
but when it comes down to it, I've decided I express love through physical contact primarily and verbally with words of approval secondary.
So I'm guessing that's the way I express love mostly.
Please do tell me how you think you fit this criteria!
I'm really interested.
In conclusion: Cuddles and compliments make my world go 'round.
