Digital Love Language

Some of us may be familiar with the 5 love languages but I thought with this modern dating era, there might be a second layer.

 

Constant Texting

Some people want that constant connection and interaction. They want to talk about their day, about events with friends, and random childhood memories. They want to learn everything about you, every detail and corner of your mind. These couples place high value on long notes detailing how much you love them and being the first thing you think of when you wake up. 

 

Facetime  

You don’t need the constant communication but when you do communicate you want it to have more quality. You want to vent and tell stories to each other with full animation and all the tea. Some couples just feel more connected by being in the same environment together and not necessarily talking. You want to see that smile, hear that laugh, and see their face light up when talking about their day

 

Sending Memes

These individuals may have a hard time expressing how they feel in their own words so they use art and published words to tell someone how they’re feeling. This is an easy, maybe passive way of keeping a connection which can be good for when you have a crush on someone. It also works well in long term relationship as a simple way to show that they’re thinking about you throughout the day. This is a way to make your partner laugh or communicate the type of mood you’re in.

 

Social Media  

They need everyone to know just how much they love you! They’re so proud of all your accomplishments, they’ll have a picture and paragraph for every one. Their social media followers will know of every good deed you’ve done from cooking dinner to trips to the beach. They may also know about every fight or embarrassing act you’ve done as well though. For better or worse, their followers have front row seats to your relationship.

  1. Oh I love this. I haven’t seen them updated this way, which is surprising to me due to the amount of time most people spend in the digital world!

    It also makes me feel better about my own friendships/relationship. We are expressing love, just in a new way. 🙂

  2. I like this! But all of those things are still the 5 love languages. For example, if you like long text messages, then that could be words of affirmation and so on and so forth

  3. Alrighty then! My little sister is also talking about love languages. I look forward to conversing with her about this “new” layer. Thanks for sharing! 🙂

  4. This was really cool to read. I definitely can relate to the constant text messages. I am this type of person. I also like social media, go figure, lol. My hubby is definitely the Meme guy. I get random memes most days. I find I have to “translate them” to my own language.
