@docgatorb, have you read the book?
If you have read the book completely, then you will see that there is actually a bigger impact of speaking love languages for the society rather than just for married couples.
There is always a reason of why people coming to this website. I know a guy who is married and still looking for cuddling with strangers, simply because he doesn’t get enough from his wife. In this term it might not be considered as cheating, it’s just a way to fulfill the emotional needs. I know another guy who becomes grumpy if he doesn’t cuddle. And I know someone who can’t concentrate working until her cuddling dose is filled. So I do believe that we are actually seeking something deeper than merely physical. It is the emotional part that people need the most, and cuddling is just one way to fulfill emotional needs, through physical touches. At the end of the day, people would operate normally, work productively, and grow healthily when the emotional needs are fulfilled.
This is not about getting a cuddle buddy to be your romantic partner, it’s about giving the person an emotional fulfillment. Even a simple act like having meal has a purpose of continuing life, then how can cuddle not having such purpose beyond what it appears to be?
If giving compliment to the cuddle buddy who’s primary love language is words of affirmation can give a more meaningful cuddle and make him/her happier, then I don’t see the reason of not doing that. The same case for having conversation.
Yet again, everyone has different preferences. It might be that quality time is just not your first or second or even third love languages, as I understand that many people have that tendency too.
