According to Dr. Gary Chapman, the 5 love languages are:
- Gift giving
- Quality time
- Words of affirmation
- Acts of service (devotion)
- Physical touch
Obviously, by their very nature, ANRs fluently speak four of these five languages, and the fifth can easily be incorporated.
Both parties get to serve the other. Contrary to what most ANR skeptics think, the woman is also greatly served, and some women in ANRs say the gift/pleasure is all theirs:
“he allowed his mouth to slip from my breast, and he thanked me for what I had given him.
But the pleasure was mine.
To be the woman who is blessed to nurture and nourish this gracious and loving man is a gift beyond compare.
He completes me.
Without S, I am only half of a person.”
