Here are the primary love needs of men and women by John Gray:

Primary love needs of women

  1. Caring

  2. Understanding

  3. Respect

  4. Devotion

  5. Validation

  6. Reassurance

Primary love needs of men

  1. Trust

  2. Acceptance

  3. Appreciation

  4. Admiration

  5. Approval

  6. Encouragement

Happens that a woman gives her man what she needs (caring, understanding, etc.) not considering that his primary love needs are different (trust, acceptance, etc.) from hers, and the opposite, a man gives his woman what he needs.

Knowing each others primary love needs will help us to improve and maintain our romantic relationships.
