I like (no, make that need) to get compliments. My husband hates giving them. That must be a common situation. So guys, how do you deal with it?
There’s a popular relationship book called “The Five Love Languages” by Gary Chapman. He posits five different ways that people have of expressing love and feeling loved.
-Words of Affirmation
-Acts of Service
-Physical Affection (which goes far beyond sex)
So that would make me a “Words of Affirmation” (and Acts of Service) type of girl.
My husband is isn’t very affectionate, although he likes to sit with me (while doing his own thing on some electronic gadget). He also does compliment me, but only once, and after that he doesn’t like to repeat himself, you know?
