If we rank it from the most to least common love language, arguably, “Physical touch” can be found at the top. If anything, this is the simplest way to express love aside from words. 

Having this as a love language means that you build intimate connections by physically connecting with them like through hugging, kissing, holding hands. Receiving and giving physical contact is important for these people. It doesn’t have to be a consistent display of affection. On a normal day, a simple kiss-on-the-cheek goodbye or hand on the back while walking can be enough. For special occasions like Valentine's Day, perhaps a relaxing massage can be an ideal date.
