This is great wisdom. I finally understood why I could never survive on long distance relationships, even if not that long of a distance. I learned that my primary love language is quality time and I now understand why my love tank seemed to constantly be close to empty and I seemed to constantly feel frustrated. Great tool to learn and understand more about yourself and your partner and align on love languages/needs of each one.
I think that languages exposed are obvious and most of the people are pegged as quality of time and words of affirmation. But it's just my opinion. Read it and see if you are agree with me or not.
I have a rather eclectic love of books. I know what I like and I tend not to be a severe critic. If I enjoyed it, it gets 4 or 5 stars.
Our counselor recommended this book and it took me a really long time to decide to buy it. When I finally did, I was astounded at how good it was. It contains very simple ideas which for some reason, I had never thought of before. It really helped me understand a lot more about what people need in order to survive in a relationship. It is truly a great book for anyone to read.
Excellent book, very pleasant to hear and easy to understand with real life examples.
It's so far one of the best books I've bought in audible, and really enjoyed listen to it.
I am newly engaged (for the first time) and worried over a couple of spats my new partner and I had. Wanting to better understand how to succeed in commitment in a time when it seems no one can, I sought out a couple of books such as this one. I loved this book. I don't know that it is the answer to all of loves woes, but it is a fantastic tool for anyone in a relationship. I love the direct and simple language of Dr. Chapman and, while there were certainly godliness aspects that don't apply to my life, they were not a big deterrent for me.
Great for couples at all stages of their relationship! Dr. Chapman's tone and accent were so easy to listen to and the information is so helpful.
I have been in a relationship for nearly two years. We started off fantastic, everything was perfect. We now are engaged, have the house, the yard, the car, the dog... and the growing pains to go with it.
Coming apart at the seams, we found this book together. We have read it and started doing the exercises. No guarantees, but after he told a few stories that sounded exactly like us, and showed how a little (a lot) of effort and a little (a lot) of time... anything can be overwritten in love and relationships.
Crossing my fingers, but the book was a fantastic and quick read.
A great read which makes one think, if one is willing to spend some time in introspection and then more importantly in action. A wise person once wrote, “Thought without action is commentary” and I believe it holds true in this case. To identify one’s own love language and that of one’s partner is merely the first step.
It opens one’s eyes to the obvious conflict, which can arise when the love languages between partners are not the same. It only takes a moment to see where things went wrong in relationships past.
I do feel that the book could have been shorter however and found it to drag at times. Nevertheless, I definitely recommend it!!
I found this book to be extrememly helpful in providing insight of how different people love and how to recognize their love language. Gary gets back to basics quickly. This was a good listen.
