As you know, Crystal and I have had a heck of a roller coaster ride with our relationship since 1993. We have grown as a couple in many ways through the years. However, there was always one HUGE obstacle that caused us to have such a rough ride. The fact that Crystal never felt love or that she even deserved to be loved. I’ve had to PROVE to her time and time again how much she means to me.
That said that I had learned HOW to show her my love. That was a challenge that I was more than willing to take on because I wanted her to know how much she meant to me in hopes of her marrying me one day. Naturally, I won the challenge, but many men don’t! Many men give up in love and feel it’s not worth the heartache to show a woman they love them. I’ve found that to be completely opposite.
I am proud to say that I am happily married to my wife, and we are going on seven years of marriage bliss. (That does not mean that we haven’t had our share of arguments and fights!!) We have lived through many trials and tribulations together.We could have avoided a lot of that had I learned Crystal’s love language earlier. That’s why when I got the chance to review the book [easyazon_link identifier=”B00OICLV0Y” locale=”US” tag=”tidbitofexp-20″]The 5 Love Languages for Men[/easyazon_link] by Gary Chapman (one of my wife’s favorite authors) I knew I had to take it.
Everyone has a particular love language that speaks to them. It can be words of affection, acts of service, receiving gifts, quality time, and even the physical touch. With Crystal, it is hard to tell which one is her love language because she responds to all of the different types of love languages. One in particular though is a tricky one, but yet vital for her. If that love language goes without being used for any length of time, then I know I’m in for a world of hurt. If I do it too much, then I’m making her feel something completely utterly different.
You know I’ve felt many times like I was living in a catch 22 situation. I’m sure that many men have gone through the same thing with the woman in their life. That’s why I’m glad to say that this book will give men the ammo they need to speak the love language their woman will respond to the most.
This Valentine’s Day and beyond (because, after all, loving someone doesn’t just happen on a special day) I challenge you to take the time to read this book. Then PUT INTO ACTION the tips and tricks [easyazon_link identifier=”B00OICLV0Y” locale=”US” tag=”tidbitofexp-20″]The 5 Love Languages for Men: Tools for Making a Good Relationship Great[/easyazon_link] provides you. Make your love lasts a lifetime by learning her love language.
