The author of this book and strategy (Gary Chapman) is a relationship councellor, who discovered that there are five principle ways we express our LOVE in a relationship, and alternatively there are PRIMARY ways we wish to receive the expression of love (back to us) in our relationships.
I recorded a video 5 years ago (complete with whiteboard) to explain to you the full strategy and how to use it.
I would also encourage you to read the book – The 5 Love Languages – or check out Gary Chapman’s website to determine what your Primary Love Language is.
Below is a video I recorded to explain (on a whiteboard) this beautiful strategy – when I also had less white hairs.
It was recorded while I was working at The Practice meditation and yoga centre in Bali (Canggu).

Below is one of my personal belief’s on relationships. I find that putting expectations on relationships and their ‘duration’ – to determine if we are, or have been, “successful” – is not really that helpful. My recommendation is that we just do the best to show up as the best version of ourselves, every day, with a focus on ‘constant improvement’ of ourselves, and then let the love blossom from there.
I also acknowledge the ever-changing nature of this universe and everyone, and everything, within it.
