However, you do need to pay for this app. The Goodymy editor was convinced to purchase this app after watching their documentary. In their documentary, you could see people open up and connected in such a deeper level. It is worth to sacrifice RM7.90 which is a cup of bubble tea to buy this app at the time. Currently, you could download the app for free yet if you want to play the game you need a diamond credit to play. You have 3 free credits at first but afterwards, you need to top up the credit to play.

Love language is fundamental in a relationship – Why is that?

Love is a universal word that everyone understood. Whether you are talking to a Chinese, Indian, Korean or Latino. When you say the word ‘love’, no one would ever need more contexts for the word. The word itself has such a diverse interpretation of it based on different people. But, did you know that there is a language for love? What is Love Language?    Gary Chapman is the man behind this concept. His first book about love language was published in 1992 and he has sold 11millions copies of the book since then. Love language includes words of affirmation, quality time, acts of service, physical touch and receiving gifts. He believes that love will transform into these languages during daily interaction with your love one. However, among these, there would be one as their primary language. The rest of it would rank differently after taking a test. So, where can we take the test? You can get tested online.   There is this website that you could take a test to assess what’s your primary love language. It takes around 10 minutes to complete the test. You are required to answer a few questions in the test. The result will be shown in the end. What happens next after the test?It’s time to break down the meaning of love language.   Did you realize that some people are touchy or expressive towards their partner? Some are not expressive, but they have always spent time with their partner. That’s because all of us might have a different primary language with each other. For example, if your primary language of love is:1. Words of affirmation—you enjoy hearing compliments from your partner, or you feel joy when they say they are proud of you.2. Physical touch—getting a hug or holding hands make you feel happy.3. Quality time—both of you spend the effort to make time to have a date or fun activities together. 4. Acts of Service—your partner offers help to run errands.5. Receiving gift—when your partner travels for work and brought you a gift.Then, what if you and your partner do not share the same love language? Fear not! You could still learn their love language. Relationship is all about learning and discovering each other's difference. It is a lifelong task to be done.

If you wish to use his artwork to be your tattoo, you should purchase tattoo permission from him to honour his artwork. Likewise, do ask for permission from your desire tattoo artist whether he or she is willing to do a tattoo from another tattoo artist.

Here is what you could say if anyone is sharing their worry to you.Did you have a bad day? Do you want to talk about it?Angry people are usually sad people. Most of the time they were actually sad but it’s difficult for them to embrace their sadness. As being sad is often equate to showing weakness which that is not true. So, they disguise their sadness into anger yet deep down they were upset. Is there anything I could do to make you feel better?Knowing what’s the right word to say could break the barrier between people. Saying this line is telling them that you are ready to help. It’s important to ask them more than once, they might need some time to sort out their thought. Despite, in the end, they didn’t utter any words. That’s okay, at least they know that there are people like you care deeply about them.I am sure you are doing the best you could.Anyone that approached you to talk about their problems it’s because they are worried, self-doubting, clueless, not sure whether they are doing the right things or just lost. It’s important to give them affirmation or assurance. Regardless of what they did, saying this line could be their great comfort.
