Love Personality for Couples and Their Relationships

The way that you express your love may be quite different from the way that your partner expresses it. In relationships, sometimes the thing that attracted you most to the other person is something that causes turmoil and strife down the road. The reason for this is that people often have different ways of expressing their love, and the love trends or love personality traits will help you understand more fully how you choose to express your love and how your partner does as well.

Knowing your partner is the first step to a great marriage

In order to help you gain a better understanding of yourself and your partner, there are three basic love trends or personalities that many people exhibit: the emotional lover, the creative lover, and the traditional lover. Each of these types of lovers chooses a different way to express love and show appreciation.

Finding Out Your Relationship Personality

The emotional lover looks for a deeper or hidden meaning in everything, and they are very attuned to the intentions behind certain actions. The creative lover exhibits many of the same traits as the emotional lover, but they also love to experiment with new things and take risks in the relationship. The traditional lover does things very ‘by the book’ so to speak and adheres to the societal expectations when it comes to relationships. For example, the traditional lover would bring flowers to the door when he plans to take a woman out for a date because this is seen as the appropriate way to greet a lady.

Understanding the Role of Couples Therapy

Once you understand the type of relationship personality that you have, you can better connect with your partner.

Once you understand the type of relationship personality that you have, you can better connect with your partner. You should also take some time to think about whether you and your partner have different ideas on the best way to express your love. In couples therapy, you can discuss the differences between you and your partner and find better ways to express yourselves in a way that satisfies the other person. This doesn’t necessarily mean changing yourself, but it does mean looking at things that you or your partner does from a different perspective.

Our couples counselors at Marriage and Couples Counseling in New York City will help you understand your love personality and that of your partner so that you can both begin to form a stronger bond with one another that will last a lifetime.
