Apparently I Am Love Bilingual

I'd been meaning to take the "Love Languages" quiz for quite a while. When communication breaks down between Dan and I, it's always something I think about. Maybe we just aren't on the same wavelength and we're really just saying the same thing.

So I found this quiz online and it really wasn't that revealing: I like being told I'm pretty and presents. Here's the break down of my scores:
  • Words of Affirmation: 7
  • Quality Time: 6
  • Receiving Gifts: 7
  • Acts of Service: 6
  • Physical Touch: 4
It's such a convoluted test. Trying to choose between which makes me feel better faster, hugs or praise, is totally subjective and after answering 30 questions like that, you just want to get it over with.

Anyway, so here's what this quiz thinks about me.

     Words of Affirmation: 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.

I'd believe that, especially the insults part. I remember everything and things like that I wish I could forget but just don't know how.

     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. 

And given the number of pieces I've written on how to give gifts and romance, this seems very fitting.

Now to just trick Dan into finding my results and creating his own...
