At the receiving end

Love  me – U better get me that ring!
Certain individuals attach a lot of importance to tangible and concrete gifts. They presume that giving and receiving gifts is actually an expression of love. This is perhaps the simplest language to comprehend. However, individuals who consider material gifts as hollow expressions of love or who are concerned more with saving may find it difficult to comprehend this language. It is important to remember that individuals who like receiving gifts actually look for the thought behind the gift. The value of the gift may not be important to them. Frequent inexpensive gifts may be enough to communicate to them that they are remembered, valued, cherished and loved. A flower may be a better gift than an expensive suit. It is important to decipherer individual tastes, likes and dislikes while giving a gift. Since such people look for emotions behind the gifts, it is important to choose a thought full gift.
Certain individuals comprehend simple acts like helping with some chores in the house, preparing a meal, vacuuming or walking the dog as acts made out of love. For these individuals acts of service communicate feelings of love. There is a bell of warning here. It is important to understand the vernacular or dialect along with the language of the partner. Often certain individuals value a particular task more than other. For example, a husband may try to express his love to his wife who understands the language of acts of service and prepare a cup of bed tea for his wife on a Sunday morning. The wife, however, may not attach much significance to this act. For her helping out with cleaning the dishes after meals may be an important action for expressing love. Action it is said always speaks better than words and hence acts of service are extremely potent tools for expressing warm feelings of devotion and love to one’s partner.
