I'm so crashing already. I ate them 20 minutes ago.

I got nothing else.

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.

I read Chapman's book, "The Five Love Languages," last year. It's rather hokey, like all self-help books, plus it's heavily littered with Christian sentiment. But I thought he had a pretty good point, and I must admit that I doubt whether my current long-distance relationship would be going half so well if I hadn't read it.
I recognized my communication style as being pretty evenly balanced between Words of Affection and Quality Time, but I also realized to my startlment that when I was growing up, my family expressed their affection pretty equally between all five. Which may explain why I'm comfortable offering all five. One thing's for sure, I've never gotten complaints that my SO's didn't know how I felt about them.
Come to think of it, I don't think anybody's ever said I'm lacking in the emotional expression/authenticity department...except maybe one really nutso guy that I dated who was trying to manipulate the hell out of me. But when he said it I just looked at him like he'd lost his mind.
That online quiz didn't strike me as the best. Read the book, you could probably finish it in one day.
