You’re well aware of the five love languages—words of affirmation, acts of service, receiving gifts, quality time and physical touch—coined by author and marriage counselor Gary Chapman in his book, aptly titled The 5 Love Languages.
But since Chapman’s original 1992 publication, the world has changed. Like…a lot. We communicate, date and form relationships in entirely different ways from how we did under the first Bush administration. Long gone are the days of dial-up AOL chatrooms and speed dating. In 2019, you can swipe right, slide into DMs and text “u up?” faster than your McDonald’s drive-through order will be ready. High-speed internet has entirely changed the way we express ourselves.
