I know my wife loves me.
She tells me so every day, but she also brings me coffee.
I usually start each day with some quiet time for devotions and to look over work for the day ahead. Many days Jean will bring me a nice hot cup of joe. It’s her way of saying, “I love you.”
I should say, it’s my way of hearing, “I love you.”
In the same way our personality has us hardwired to be introverted or extroverted, we all feel love in specific ways. Identify those traits in your spouse, and you will have discovered a new key to unlocking your spouse’s heart.
Which of these sounds familiar?
You might recognize your spouse as an “expressive.” This is someone who just wants to have a good time. They’re storytellers and love to talk.
Or maybe your spouse is “analytical.” Analytics live life with precision. Every ingredient in a recipe is accurately measured and their checkbooks are balanced to the penny. They’re deep and thoughtful.
Or how about a “driver”? They love to be in control. They’re born leaders. They can be pretty unemotional when they’re focused on a task. They’re active and confident.
“Amiable” is someone who strives for peace at any cost. They’re usually low-key, quiet, and easygoing. Sometimes they’ll struggle to stand up for what they need.
We’ll often discuss topics like this from either the male or the female perspective, so we can really zero in on specific helpful ideas. Ladies, today is for you.
