Q: How can my girlfriend and I speak each others’ Love Languages when in a long-distance relationship?
A: I think the key here is to understand that these languages can be spoken long distance. Words of Affirmation is easy because you can talk on the phone or email. Quality Time is a little more difficult but you can, for example, sit at the computer and spend 20 minutes talking to each other. For Acts of Service you can say, “If I were with you, I would be doing this for you…” Same thing with Physical Touch, “If I were with you, I’d give you a big hug.” And they will emotionally sense your live. Gifts, of course, rather easy. By the gift, put it in the mail, they’ll get it and feel loved. All five languages can be spoken long distance.
