5 ways physical contact can become the love language your relationship needs
In general, there are five ways a person loves love: words of affirmation, physical touch, good times, gifts and services. Once you know how your partner wants to be loved, it is easy to be romantic with them and be satisfied that your gestures are fully appreciated.
Physical touch is much more than sex as some people think. If your partner’s love language is physical touch, this includes physical affection through hugs, kisses, sex, and cuddles, among other things.
This is how you express your love for your partner even without sex.
1. Experiment with non-sexual touch
Non-sexual touch includes hugs from behind, simply placing your legs on hers, resting your head on her shoulders while pressing your phone, your head on her thighs, and others. It doesn’t have to have a sexual meaning; just touch them. We used the word “experiment” because your partner will tell you as soon as you do or you find out which ones they really like and want to do more often, even if they feel good about all of them.
2. Notice how you touch others
Something as simple as a brush on your partner’s shoulders can feel them all the love they have for you. Imagine doing this to someone else. This makes the gesture feel less special. If you have a certain touch with your partner, try not to use it with any other person.
3. Comfortable PDA level
Not many people are comfortable looking at PDAs, especially when they are in front of them. You don’t have to do too much. A slightly longer hug, the occasional squeeze on her palms, stroking her beard lightly, or stroking her cheek. It’s always the little things.
4. Cuddle as often as you can
Cuddling is one of the easiest ways to please someone with this love language. You don’t even have to do anything together. You just have to be snuggled up and do your separate things.
5. Request for feedback
Ask your partner if they have certain touches that they like more than others so you know which ones to unknowingly should be making with your friends. Feedback also helps you set boundaries for them and for you. This way, you will find that even the bare essentials for you will work wonders for your partner.
