About This Quiz

There are five love languages that can help bring couples together. When you know your significant other's love language, you learn how to best express your love to them. Additionally, if you know your own love language, you can tell your significant other the best way to show that they love you. If you aren't familiar with the five love languages, they are: Words of Affirmation, Gifts, Acts of Service, Quality Time and Physical Touch. Each of these languages is important in their own way because they can show people how to respond to one another. 

That is not unlike the pop music of the 1980s. This music brought us lyrics and beats that helped us express exactly how we felt about pretty much everything, including love. With the unforgettable songs of the 1980s, we learned more about ourselves and what we preferred in our significant others. So, whether you're looking for someone's extra time and kiss or you just need a lover with a slow hand, your taste in '80s pop music reveals your love language. Don't believe us?
