There are different types of love to express as well as different ways to express this love! “Love Languages” were designed by marriage counselor Dr. Gary Chapman to describe the different ways people express and make sense of love. They are quality time, words of affirmation, acts of service, receiving gifts, and physical touch. Find out your love language with this online quiz. Then read on to see if your favorite hip-hop lyricist has the same love language you do!
