This free quiz reveals how you prefer to give and receive love. The concept of love languages was created by couples counselor Dr. Gary Chapman, who observed that people differ in what sort of interactions make them feel loved. Dr. Chapman described 5 love languages, however our research on over 500,000 volunteers indicates there are actually seven distinct ways of showing love. This quiz measures your preference for all 7 of these modern love styles.
A. The Love Styles test is a personal inventory that allows you to measure and understand how you like to give and receive love in romantic relationships. It measures a concept similar to the five love languages, which was developed in the 1990's by psychologist and marriage counselor Dr. Gary Chapman, but with some key improvements based on Truity's empirical research.
Dr. Chapman pioneered the idea that we each have individual styles in the way we show love, and that having a style that does not match your partner's can cause misunderstandings and dissatisfaction in relationships. Our 2022 research, using a dataset of over 500,000 volunteers, demonstrated that Dr. Chapman's idea of love languages was valid, however the specific ways we show love have shifted to a more equitable, relational focus. Thus, Truity developed the 7 Love Styles, to reflect the seven areas we discovered were most important in modern relationships.

A. This test won't predict who you are compatible with, but it can help you to understand how to be a better partner to whoever you choose! The concept of love styles is not to pigeonhole people or limit the kinds of relationships they can be in. Rather, it is to create a shared understanding of how people may differ in the actions and gestures that are meaningful to them. Through this understanding, you will be better able to communicate with your partners, friends, and even family members about how you can better make each other feel connected, appreciated, and loved.
