I admit I haven't read the actual book but I'm familiar with the concept.
It's funny how all men understand "touch" as touching someone romantically or sexually as if there isn't any other kind.
Showing love through touch isn't groping someone or touching their genitals. It's hugging a grieving friend. Holding the hand of a sick relative. Cuddling on the couch with your child.
It's actually disgusting how any kind of touch is sexualized by them.
Men often use the "love languages" stuff to demand things and guilt their partner's into things they are not comfortable with. It works both ways, too. "My love language is touch so you need to have sex with me whenever I want to show me your love!" "You can't be upset that I don't give you gifts or do thoughtful things for you. Gifts and acts of service just aren't my love languages!"
Wow. One of the first books my fake fiancee gave me was the love language book and wouldn't you know, his 'love language' was touch?! They're so cliche it's not even funny.
The love languages are from a christian dude so it has religious roots... Which makes it auto sus. Then it's incredibly simplistic. My experience is dudes like it because it expects so little romance and intimacy from them. And then yep they can claim touch is theirs, making their sexual needs met by default.
fuckboys always like to claim their love language is “touch” so they have an excuse to act offended when you don’t want to touch their penis.
