Stay Single Until You Meet Someone Like This, Based On Your Love Language

Clarisse Meyer

Words of Affirmation

Stay single until you meet someone who isn’t afraid to tell you how much they love you. Someone who’s not embarrassed or afraid to articulate their feelings for you, someone who always knows exactly what to say when you’re having a bad day, and someone who speaks to you in a way that never makes you doubt that they’re in this for the long haul.

Stay single until you meet someone who can turn your whole day around in one conversation, and someone who makes you feel cherished and understood and taken care of – all from a handwritten note or a special ‘good morning’ text. Stay single until you meet the person who you truly feel you can talk to – the person who always knows how to use their words to comfort you, to make you laugh, and most importantly, to make you feel loved.

Acts of Service

Stay single until you meet someone who shows you they love you. Someone who always shows up, someone who’s always there to support you, and someone who never breaks a promise. Someone who is the opposite of all talk – because they always do what they say they’re going to do, and they never give you a reason to doubt them.

Stay single until you meet someone who explains how much they love you through their actions – someone who warms up your car for you on a really cold winter day, someone who handles dinner and dishes when you come home exhausted and have to collapse on the couch, someone who books a surprise trip to that place you’ve always wanted to visit. Stay single until you meet the person who does the little things that nobody else ever thinks of – because over time, that thoughtful cup of coffee and that homemade dinner become some of the moments where you feel more loved than you ever have before.

Receiving Gifts

Stay single until you meet someone who gives you the kinds of gifts and surprises that are more meaningful and more heartfelt than anything you’ve ever received in your life. Someone who finds true joy in giving, who gets so much happiness from bringing a smile to your face. Someone who pays attention to that little keepsake from that one store that caught your eye, and surprises you with it months later. Someone who saves the ticket stub from your first concert together and the takeout menu from your first cozy night in and finds little ways throughout your relationship to put these things into sincere, well thought-out gifts that you will always treasure.

Stay single until you meet someone who pays attention – someone who hears you offhandedly mention that you’ve always wanted to go indoor skydiving and then surprises you with an appointment on a Tuesday afternoon. Stay single until you meet the person who is less concerned with buying you the fanciest, most elaborate and brag-worthy present and is more focused on finding the truly meaningful gift that will make you feel treasured, cared about, and loved.

Quality Time

Stay single until you meet someone who always makes you feel seen. Someone who is happy just to look at you and talk with you and simply be with you. Someone who never makes you feel like you have to earn their attention or deserve their presence.

Stay single until you meet someone who you can completely be yourself with – someone who loves to have long and deep conversations with you over dinner, but who is just as happy to hang out in a room together and not talk, as long as you get to just be with each other. Someone who puts their phone away when they’re with you and someone who truly listens to you. Stay single until you meet the person who makes you feel the most like yourself, because whenever you are with them, the masks are gone, the walls come down, and all that exists is just the two of you together, enjoying one another’s company and being 100% yourselves.

Physical Touch

Stay single until you meet someone who makes you feel more connected and cared for than you ever have in your life. Someone who expresses their love for you physically, even in the little ways – always holding your hand, and scratching your back, and mindlessly running their fingers through your hair while they read a book or watch television. Someone whose physical connection with you is second nature – it is their instinct to just lay with you, kiss you on the forehead, put their hand on your knee.

Stay single until you meet someone who doesn’t feel the need to be PDA-centric, but who loves to find little, often secretive, ways to remind you that they’re thinking of you – a quick squeeze of your hand or a kiss near your ear when no one is looking. Stay single until you meet the person who is always going out of their way to make sure you know that you are loved, because that’s the most important thing in the world to them.
