Compatibility hinges on speaking the same love language: trying to win a ‘words of affirmation’ enthusiast with a bouquet of roses is like reciting Shakespeare to a dog—it won’t quite hit the mark. As such, understanding and aligning your partner’s love languages can do wonders for the relationship.
In this week’s episode of Reloscope: The Relationships Science Insights Podcast, host Marie Stella is joined by relationships and couples counselor Jill Robin Payne, to unravel the significance of love languages in a relationship.

Reloscope: The Relationships Science Insights Podcast

Relationships are like a kaleidoscope -- lots of little shapes in lots of colours that blend together in sometimes beautiful, sometimes uncomfortable ways. They're complicated, different personalities and different expectations, and for most of us, negotiating all of that is tough. Your Host, Marie Stella Quek, is going to be your companion, your friend, your agony aunt riding with you on your journey to a healthier relationship. She talks to experts who give actual good advice on a range of topics, like encouraging emotional intimacy through mindful communication and dealing with a partner who has anxiety. And sometimes, things get a little bit spicy. Each topic addresses an element from the comprehensive framework of several domains and elements created by the Center for Relationships Science and we would like to credit them for their work.
