Love Languages - Physical Touch

Now, before everyone gets excited, physical touch does not just mean sex - although that's a good place to start!

If you know someone who is very touchy-feely, their love language is probably physical touch. It is the hand on the shoulder, the comforting hug and the warm handshake. For that person, touching is a powerful way to communicate and as important as words. A touch communicates acceptance, understanding and of course, love.

A person can have a primary and secondary love language, sometimes one they give and one they receive.

Knowing someone's love language, whether it be your own or not, can assist you in connecting with them in a big way.

Everyone benefits from physical touch, but for those of us with that love language, it's as important as air!

So - who have you hugged today?

Physical touch can make or break a relationship. It can communicate hate or love. - Gary Chapman "The Five Love Languages"
