I figured out why I love my birthday so much! Yep. I’m that guy who can’t resist telling people my birthday is coming up or is here. It has bugged me at times because I know others who couldn’t care less that it is their birthday or that anyone knows.
My love language is Words of Affirmation. Compliments and positive attention really affects me in a good way. According to the book, The 5 Love Languages, Words of Affirmation fill my love tank.
People tend to show love and affection in the way they receive it. So, I tend to give compliments and talk people up. I think it explains why I tend to make a big deal out of other people’s birthday. When I was the morning weather anchor in Lubbock I would buy a cake when someone on the crew had a birthday and we would celebrate on air. “Make people do stuff for you on your special day” I would say.
Thanx to Facebook, Google+, Twitter, co-workers, and nice waitresses, I’m likely to get a full tank of nice comments Good times!
