Pulling this month's blog series all together, here's what we learned from this blog series so far: Words don't always communicate love, but specific details communicate love more effectively. Actions communicate love. Thoughtful, personalized, and even inexpensive gifts can communicate more love. How do you determine what your spouse considers showing love? Listen! 1. Listen to the comments your spouse makes when he/she receives a gift. Listen to what they don't say. Read between the lines. 2. ASK! Trust me when I say that it doesn't ruin the mystery if you go right up to her and ask what kinds of ways she likes to feel your love. It doesn't destroy the space/time continuum if you ask your husband how he feels love from you. Ask and ye shall receive...the knowledge you need! 3. Pay attention. Pay attention to the little things your spouse does. Garner clues from the comments they make either about others or themselves. Did she just say she thought it was adorable how the husband in that movie did something for his wife? Did he just make a comment that gave you a clue about what he needs? Pay attention. There are as many ways to communicate love as there are lovers. In order to find what works for your spouse, you need to listen, ask and pay attention. Use words, actions and gifts and strategically tailor them to your spouse.
