“Information is AWESOME. Only thing I must say is there is only 4 minerals in ANY white salt even if it has the name "sea salt" ALL white salt is bleached NO salt is naturally white. What is the difference? 80 minerals "real" non-bleached salt has 84 minerals, it will be pink-ish or brown-ish”
“For the reader she actually did "give" something. I am guessing for his it was classified as "Physical Touch" a language of love: This language isn’t all about the bedroom. A person whose primary language is Physical Touch is, not surprisingly, very touchy. Hugs, pats on the back, holding hands, and thoughtful touches on the arm, shoulder, or face – they can all be ways to show excitement.
She language was "Acts of Service"”
“It's not that I disagree with what is being said in some form. It's that I feel/think the way is it stated insinuating everyone has this exact same relationship and feels the exact same way the two people in this article do is on the false side. I understand that as he did more his wife's definition of love was seen in him and then she started to reciprocate his definition of love. He states "Why wasn't I getting reciprocal lovey-doveyness when we were first married? Because it wasn't for her." This would lead me to believe she was more lovey-dovey at some point in the relationship or the writer would have never married her or had a lasting relationship. We can tell by the article it is important to him. So was she selfish or holding out till she got what she wanted? That I cannot answer. Why couldn’t she try to reciprocate even a little? I think this can work opposite of what is written here too. It’s all about motivation. If she would have put forth the effort to reciprocate affection maybe he would have started doing more of the things she thought love was. Now never would I say love is all about lovey-dovey affection, but I think showing each other affection with, random touches, kiss or hugs out of the blue for no reason other than you "love" that person is extremely important to many people.”
“I think some reads are putting their Interpretation on specific statement or just reading to fast and not understanding what it is saying:
"Like, when I offered to do the dishes. Or make dinner after she had a hard day. Or, once we had a daughter, when I shared the responsibility of watching over her."
For a quick dissection please note this VERY important set of words that put the sentence in the context of "above and beyond when I normally do these task" those words are:
"after she had a hard day"
This implies that he see a need to a way to help his wife reduce stress and/or conserve energy from an already tiring day. That being said I'll be posting my own thoughts on this, but I like to read the comments 1st, or at least some of them :)”
