The concept of love languages has been well explained in previous articles published here.

We have also explained how you can best show love if your significant other's love language is ‘receiving gifts’ or ‘acts of service.’

If you sense that your sweetheart responds best to ‘words of affirmation,’ here are best ways to show affection to them:

1. Habitual confession of love

A partner whose love language is ‘acts of service’ will always want you to show how much you love them.

On the other hand, if your partner’s love language is words of affirmation, she’ll want you to always confess it.

Make it a habit to always say “I love you, babe.”

2. Brag

It’s cool to brag and say all the nice things about your partner when he or she is around.

It is even better when you can say great things about them when they are not there.

If your partner’s love language is words of affirmation, there’s no limit to the pleasure they’ll feel to learn that you have been saying sweet things, and defending them behind their backs.

Of course all partners appreciate this, but it means the world to partners like this.
