Is there a correlation between the attachment style we develop as infants and toddlers, and the love language we express as adults?
I think that there just might be one.
The attachment styles are:
The love languages are:
- Words of affirmation
- Acts of service
- Quality time
- Receiving gifts
- Physical touch
Of course, it is important to understand that attachment styles, and love languages, do shift over time. But are the shifts correlated to a matching love language. I don't think each attachment style will have purely one particular love language, but there may be a dominant one or ones.
I believe that the implications of the findings in this research idea, is how parents play a role. Parents may be, in a sense, creating their child's future love language.
