Surprise, surprise I am bi-lingual between Words of Affirmation/Quality Time, and a not too distant 2nd of Physical Touch!

Bummer, didn't work for me ...Couldn't see your results

here is the test for others to play with

http://www.afo.net/hftw-lovetest.asp

I scored physical touch as my primary - which is no surprise
I scored a tie for my secondary between "acts of service" and "quality time"

I would agree with that. I am a touch feely person for sure, I need that. But it can be offset in a pinch. I can survive without touch if I have the others.

Primary for me was Physical Touch, secondary was Quality Time.

*smacks self on head*

I JUST figured out why I've been so out of sorts the last three weeks!

My work schedule has been totally out of whack. Breathes works days, I've been working nights & afternoons. I'm not getting my quality time & physical touch needs met! duh!

I find it very helpful to know what the hell my problem is!

Most definitely!

Now that I've figured it out I'll have to figure out how to get those needs met on a more regular basis, lol until my life gets back to a semblance of normal.

I work days (though I do work from home now, but that only started last November, so take that as you will) and hubby works afternoons/nights. We've been doing this for 3 years now, and the two before that it was simply reversed. My results are similar to yours in needing physical touch and quality time. Our big thing is, even though he usually has to wake me up when he gets home, we always always kiss goodnight and goodbye. But it's not a simple peck running out the door, we do a huge long hug/kiss goodbye. At night it's a half awake kiss, but it makes a difference.

Days off are required to be at least 50% family time (gets our quality time in), and his evenings off we try to cuddle in bed and talk, filling both needs.

We don't have any other relationships currently and looking at this I have to wonder what we're thinking trying to venture poly, but odds are any other partners would have the same schedule as one of us right? Heh, it would be my luck that one or both of us would fall for someone who works 3rd shift.

I'm primarily acts of service. 33%
Second is physical touch. 27%
Quality time is 20%
the other two are both 10%

This isn't news to me.
I work really hard at accepting love given in whatever form it comes, but admittedly I got REALLY pissy on my birthday when GG gave me gifts for my birthday this year -but no card. I was so hurt and so angry it took me WEEKS to get to the point where I could even TELL him what I was thinking and feeling.
He's always given me a card or letter-which he writes lengthy things in and it's been really special to me. He thought it was so cool he could spend money on gifts for me this year. I was devastated that there was no card or letter.

Maca is primarily physical touch. He really goes on an emotional bend without that.
I'm about to the point of forbidding him to go anywhere over night "with the guys" anymore unless myself or another lover is with him-because it really fucks him up if he doesn't have that physical touch!

I think GG is quality time. But I'm curious to see what he is for sure.
