Study shows men more action-oriented in expressing love

A new study conducted with 168 straight men and women in the U.S. indicates that men are more likely to initiate sex, share leisure activities, and perform household chores as a way of communicating love. Women were found to express love by creating a warm environment and being less antagonistic. Both genders were found to be equally affectionate through hugs, kisses, compliments, and saying “I love you.”

Data was collected in the study after two months of marriage, then at yearly intervals over 13 years.
