Love Languages: Physical Touch
The fifth love language is Physical Touch. You can read about the four other love languages in my first post.
Physical Touch is not just about sex, although that’s important as well, but it’s just as much about cuddling, hugging, holding hands, playing with hair, play-wrestling, poking etc.
It’s important to keep in mind, that all human beings need physical touch in order to live an optimal life, but, for some people it’s even more important. If your beloved always wants to hold your hand, hug you, touch you and be physically close to you, there’s a good chance his or her primary love language is Physical Touch.
Again, it’s important to emphasize, that it’s not just about sex, as sex is often important to people, even when they don’t have physical touch as their primary love language. Rather, you need to pay attention to how much time you spent having physical contact, outside sex.
If your beloved’s primary love language is Physical Touch, you need to hug and caress them daily, hold their hand, run your fingers through their hair, play-wrestle with them and so on. You also need to remember, that when they do this to you, it’s their way of showing love, as we often express love, through our own primary love language.
- Hug, caress, play-fight, tickle your beloved several times a day.
- Remember to be physical outside of sex.
- Remember that it can be both very soft touches, and rather rough ones depending on your beloved’s preferences.
- Limit physical touch to sex.
- Punish your beloved by withholding physical touch.
