i never took one of these quizzes before, and whenever i think “my love language” i’m just thinking funny/every day shit like “thoughtful texts” (no matter how small), “hockey tickets”, “chicken cutlets”, “ferrero roche balls”, “creating specific memories”, etc. – but apparently, it’s an actual thing. so here were my results:
words of affirmation – 33%
actions don’t always speak louder than words. if this is your love language, unsolicited compliments mean the world to you. hearing the words, “i love you,” are important – hearing the reasons behind that love sends your spirits skyward. insults can leave you shattered and are not easily forgotten. kind, encouraging, and positive words are truly life-giving.
i would rather have attention via words any day of the week vs. material things. it’s been a rarity over time to have been showered with thoughtful words i want to hear. to be honest, it’s only been a handful, and i should have never let them go. i haven’t had that in a long time, and yearn for it again.
“i miss you”, “i’ve been thinking about you”, “i want to see you” and physical compliments go a long way.
receiving gifts – 20%
don’t mistake this love language for materialism; the receiver of gifts thrives on the love, thoughtfulness, and effort behind the gift. if you speak this language, the perfect gift or gesture shows that you are known, you are cared for, and you are prized above whatever was sacrificed to bring the gift to you. a missed birthday, anniversary, or a hasty, thoughtless gift would be disastrous – so would the absence of everyday gestures. gifts are visual representations of love and are treasured greatly.
it’s a rarity when people get this right, and it’s all i really want aside from verbal thoughtfulness. if i’m at rite aid, i’m picking up your favorite candy, just because. just to make you smile. is it too much to desire that back? i don’t think so… it takes two seconds to be thoughtful, people.
i think this is high on the list for me, because i do it for others all the time. not just relationships – for friends too. thoughtfulness means so much to me. whether it be restoring a lost item from the past, to adding to a wardrobe, having something for a bookshelf, some relic from a shared tv show, me making you something by hand or a framed pic from a trip, etc. – i love all that shit. ♥
physical touch – 17%
this language isn’t all about the bedroom. a person whose primary language is physical touch is, not surprisingly, very touchy. hugs, pats on the back, holding hands, and thoughtful touches on the arm, shoulder, or face – they can all be ways to show excitement, concern, care, and love. physical presence and accessibility are crucial, while neglect or abuse can be unforgivable and destructive. physical touch fosters a sense of security and belonging in any relationship.
true! (although the bedroom stuff is v important, too) …don’t hold my hand though, i hate that shit.
quality time – 17%
in the vernacular of quality time, nothing says, “i love you,” like full, undivided attention. being there for this type of person is critical, but really being there – with the tv off, fork and knife down, and all chores and tasks on standby – makes your significant other feel truly special and loved. distractions, postponed dates, or the failure to listen can be especially hurtful. quality time also means sharing quality conversation and quality activities.
i don’t mind some attention – but i’m not expecting full, undivided attention. when it comes time to being on your phone – just don’t be rude.
also: i hate being around people 24/7. i need my space, and i assume others do, too. i have no prob spending a lot of time with someone if they want to, but i’m never against having personal days.
acts of service – 13%
can vacuuming the floors really be an expression of love? absolutely! anything you do to ease the burden of responsibilities weighing on an “acts of service” person will speak volumes. the words he or she most want to hear: “let me do that for you.” laziness, broken commitments, and making more work for them tell speakers of this language their feelings don’t matter. finding ways to serve speaks volumes to the recipient of these acts.
i have OCD, don’t do anything i don’t ask you to do and we’ll be grand, lol.

my computer says i made this little quote graphic in 2009. i can’t argue that, i start listening to world/inferno in 2007 or 2008, so that makes sense. it might have been on my myspace page in the bio/content section (and here it is on my myspace page again, lol).
this was my favorite song by them. i remember seeing them the first time open for bouncing souls at webster hall, maybe? i couldn’t believe how many people were playing on stage at once, they were amazing. they didn’t sound like any other band within our punk world. it was weird and refreshing.
one time, my ex and his sister and i all went up to the chance in poughkeepsie to see them play with the souls. he ended up being at the bar – just hanging out with the crowd like it wasn’t no thang and he was so nice, said hi and everything. i’ll feel like a dick forever, bc his sister and i were like “who is this older guy at the bar alone staring at us“. i had only seen him one time before that and totally forgot, and we just thought he was creepin’ for ladies or something (we are idiots), until he said hi and i put it together.
anyways, after that, i did get to witness the glory that was world/inferno a few more times. they never disappointed, and i’m sad the world will never have that again in this lifetime.

this is a very temporary layout – (it’ll be back to normal on thursday) – inspired and produced for my favorite holiday! well, next to christmas and thanksgiving. but i love being spooked and i love LOVE LOVE halloween berry much. as you can see, this little monkey of mine has grown as a tradition of my site. i keep trying to put him in my layouts and it’s werkin 😀 hee hee i love nintendo and i love yoshi’s island (that’s where he derives from). and doesn’t he look adorable in his witch costume?? 🙂
i actually somehow still have this! i used to try to integrate this monkey into my old layout graphics when i first had a website.

time warner (i refuse to acknowledge that dumb new company name) decided to start advertising that they’ll soon be streaming “mad about you”. if you don’t know what it is, it’s a 90s comedy sitcom about a married couple living in NYC, dealing with day to day life situations. i loved the show when it was on back in the day, but whenever i hear the damn theme song now, i get all PTSD about it.
WHY YOU ASK?
tl;dr: my first boyfriend in high school (who i lost my v-card to) – i used to sleep over his house. i prob said i was sleeping somewhere else, but his parents were usually asleep early, so we’d hang out and fool around at night. that show would always be on for some reason, and we’d fall asleep together with it on in the background. apparently i wasn’t sexually adventurous or consistent enough, and he eventually left me for my “best friend” at the time. i have always associated that theme song with him and that small, horrible window of my life.
