Understanding The Five Love Languages (And Why There Are More Than Five!) | BABH S2Ep131

EPISODE 131: Understanding The Five Love Languages (And Why There Are More Than Five!)

I’m a great believer in the benefit of learning to speak your beloved's language.

If you do it well it can be the bedrock of a solid and satisfying relationship, that has the best chance of going the distance!

In his book “The Five Love Languages”, Dr Gary Chapman has laid out a brilliant map that can give you real insight into the different love languages we speak.

In today’s episode I’ll walk you through those five love languages and explore how speaking your partners love language can increase your sense of connection.

I’ll also share why I believe there are more than five love languages and cover some of the issues that can come up when you’re presented with a map like this.

So strap in, click that play button and let’s dive in.
