“Men and women each have six unique love needs that are equally important. You can better understand the needs of your partner by better understanding each of these kinds of love.
Men primarily need trust, acceptance, appreciation, admiration, approval, and encouragement.
Women primarily need caring, understanding, respect, devotion, validation, and reassurance.
Certainly every man and woman need all twelve kinds of love.
A man becomes fully receptive to and appreciative of the six kinds of love primarily needed by women when his own primary love needs are fulfilled.
Likewise a woman needs her primary love needs fulfilled before she can begin to truly value a man’s six primary love needs.
The most powerful and practical aspect of this new understanding of love is that these different kinds of love are reciprocal. When a man expresses his caring and understanding, a woman automatically begins to reciprocate and return to him the trust and acceptance he primarily needs. The same thing happens when a woman expresses her trust towards a man and he automatically begins to reciprocate with the caring she needs.” ~ John Gray
This is a win/win situation! Just don’t wait for the other to give what you need first…..give what they need and get the love flowing! 😉
