Today on Tea & Tattle, Sophie and I delve into the topic of The 5 Love Languages, a bestselling book by Gary Chapman. This book is a fascinating read for anyone who wants to make the most of both their romantic and platonic relationships, and Sophie and I had a lot of fun deciding which 'love language' we speak (we think we're actually bilingual!). The 5 Love Languages are: words of affirmation; quality time; gifts; physical touch and acts of service. Listen to the episode to find out which resonated particularly with us, and how learning more about the 5 Love Languages shed light on our relationships, past and present!
