Women who don’t show love in the same way as their partners share their struggles – from one whose ‘cheap’ boyfriend doesn’t shower her with gifts to another who needs sex more than her man
- Men and women took to Whisper revealing they don’t feel loved by their partner
- Couples across the globe confessed problems with different emotional needs
- The five love languages are; words of affirmation, quality time, physical touch, acts of service, and receiving gifts
Good communication is key in all loving relationships but sometimes even love can get lost in translation when two partners speak different love languages.
Men and women from around the world have shared their relationship confessions on anonymous secret-telling app Whisper, revealing the problems that arise when they are on two different emotional wavelengths.
Love languages are known as the different ways of expressing and receiving love and are divided into five categories; words of affirmation, quality time, physical touch, acts of service, and receiving gifts.
However, when two people speak a completely different ‘love language’ it can create tension and leave couples questioning their compatibility.
One man said that he wishes his wife was more affectionate and that her lack of physical intimacy has left him feeling ‘so alone’. Another woman revealed that receiving gifts makes her feel valued, but her boyfriend is ‘cheap’.
While some admitted it made them consider ending their relationship when their emotional needs were not met, other couples revealed that communicating with their partner has helped them understand how to make the other person feel loved.
