What is Your Love Language?

I recently took a short quiz online to help determine what my love language is. It turned out to be pretty right on. The results echo what I keep saying in regards to one of the reasons behind my singleness: If you can't make me one of your top 3 priorities, then don't bother. In the past I've noticed that what hurts me the most is lip service that is never backed up. As this has happened repeatedly, with a few different people, I'm very sure that the behavior is not one I tolerate and will not put up with. I don't want to hear that you want to spend time with me; do it. Don't cancel. I don't want to be an afterthought. Ever. All the gifts in the world won't make up for it and I will remember it as you making a conscience decision not to make time for me. I don't want to be "squeezed in" when you find it convenient. Even in my friendships, I'm the most content just hanging out. Of course, hanging out watching something sci-fi related is always a good thing.

In Quality Time, nothing says "I love you" like full, undivided attention. Being there for this type of person is critical, but really being there—with the TV off, fork and knife down, and all chores and tasks on standby—makes you feel truly special and loved. Distractions, postponed activities, or the failure to listen can be especially hurtful.
