Cosmopolitan: The Physical Touch Love Language
Whether you learned about love languages from a personality test, love quiz, or during an online spiral, it’s likely you know a thing or two about them. Because when it comes to building lasting relationships—both romantic and platonic—these languages are pretty damn essential.
Very simply, love languages explain how different people give, receive, and feel love – this is why learning other peoples’ love languages are so important.
The Physical Love Language is alllll about physical connection and intimacy, explains OkCupid’s dating coach and the host of the Dates & Mates podcast, Damona Hoffman. “Physical touch folks give and receive love by being touched or held,” she explains.
Granted, while sexual expression is likely vital to those with this love language, other types of touch with friends and family are important as well. And all the experts agree: There’s nothing wrong with the physical touch love language. In fact, there’s nothing wrong with any of them because, as Hoffman explains, love languages are simply “tools to better understand yourself” and the people around you.
