While some people respond well to intimate touches, there are some who feel more loved and connected to their partner through words of encouragement and security. Knowing your partners' way of expressing and receiving love will be helpful in maintaining a happy and healthy relationship. Dr. Gary Chapman, bestselling author of The 5 Love Languages: The Secret to Love That Lasts, says that being aware of your man’s love language may transform your relationship–in a good way, of course.

Acts of service
Actions speak louder than words. Instead of saying you’ll do things for him, go ahead and just do them. If he likes home-cooked meals, try learning a new yet easy dish–better yet, why not try cooking together? It's a great way to spend some quality time together.

Words of affirmation

They could be words of encouragement or a few praises on how they’re doing. Our tip: Leave little love notes in his lunch box or send him a sweet text midday just to let him know that he’s on your mind.

Receiving gifts
Some people respond more to gifts, not necessarily because they're tangible, but because they say "I saw this and thought of you." Whether it's a new pair of designer kicks or a gift you made yourself, it would surely be appreciated by your partner. P.S. It's not about the most extravagant presents either. Try giving him simple tokens of love every week and reserve the more lavish gifts for special occasions.

Physical touch

Gestures like a gentle brush across the arm or a big bear hug already say a lot to people who respond to touch. That's because you create an emotional connection through physical contact. You may not be into PDA, but don’t be afraid to speak this kind of love language. Trust us: The fact that you're really making an effort to reach out to your partner will make him appreciate it all the more.

Quality time
Not all people want material things; some would rather have your undivided attention. Take a break from your busy schedule if you feel like your partner feels more loved and appreciated when you give him your time. Book an out-of-town trip or stay at home for a movie marathon–with popcorn and pizza, of course!
