I want your time and attention... and maybe some of your chocolate

There's this quiz you can take which analyzes your primary "love language". In other words, it discerns the ways in which you prefer to receive affection. Do you prefer gifts, attention, reassuring words, or something else? I think we'd all like ALL these things, of course, but this test makes you choose which is most important to you. It was interesting.
Here are my results:

Information

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.

Take the quiz

Sans, Marilyn, and Becky: Cool! Thanks for taking the test! It's interesting that we all had gifts near (or at) the bottom of our list.
You all had physical touch at (or near) the TOP of your list, whereas for me it ranked third.
This stuff fascinates me.

I ranked first on physical touch, which doesn't surprise me at all, lol! I posted the rest of the results on my blog, if you want to stop by latah. :)
