First off - this has been passing around various journals of people I know over on LJ, so I figured that since I haven't taken a "Love Languages" test in three years or so (and I don't believe I ever posted it to my blog either) I should just plunk one down right here. I know, I know, I usually try not to fall into the pit of quizzes and "What [Pop Culture Reference] are you?" that permeates many people's personal journals and blogs (as this space is dual purpose), but this is something that I've been thinking about lately - so I figure "What's the harm?"
The Five Love Languages
My primary love languages are probably Physical Touch and Quality Time.
Complete set of results
Words of Affirmation:
Acts of Service:
Unhappiness in relationships, according to Dr. Gary Chapman, is often due to the fact that we speak different love languages. Sometimes we don't understand our partner's requirements, or even our own. We all have a "love tank" that needs to be filled in order for us to express love to others, but there are different means by which our tank can be filled, and there are different ways that we can express love to others.

So... what do I think about it. I think its interesting that there is a sharp contrast between the stuff that matters to me and the stuff that doesn't matter to me. I mean, when you break it down, Acts of Service and Gifts mean almost nothing to me (well, apparently, Gifts don't make me feel loved at all... and I think that's true - although that doesn't mean that my giving specific things to someone doesn't mean the world to me).
I don't know why I've been thinking about this... Okay, that's total crap -- I know exactly why I've been thinking about this, but I don't feel like getting all angsty in this space about that sort of thing - so I shall refrain from going further on the subject.
On Saturday is Topher's annual "Gothtober Fest" party - and for the first time (even though I get invited every year) I'm actually going to attend. Shocking? No, not really. I always skipped out because every other year there was some direct conflict - and this year I'm actually not busy for once. So, I plan on having fun. I hope. I don't get out enough these days.
OA is going to be in Towers Basement as well, so a game of Hide and Go Seek may commence as well. And no, there is nothing wrong with a bunch of 20 somethings playing hide and go seek dagnabbit.
I think I'm going to go get some lunch though...
