Publisher's Summary

Dr. Gary Chapman believes you have a God-given yearning for complete and unconditional love. But you'll never be able to express it, or receive it, until you learn to speak the right "love" language. The Five Love Languages for Singles reveals how different personalities express love in different ways. In fact, there are five specific languages of love:

  • Quality Time
  • Words of Affirmation
  • Gifts
  • Acts of Service
  • Physical Touch

Gary Chapman's first best-selling book, The Five Love Languages, has already connected with more than three million readers. Now he tailors that message to meet the unique needs of singles, using real-life examples and anecdotes taken from his 30 years of interaction with single adults.

Whether you are young or old, widowed, divorced, separated, or never married, these proven principles of communicating and receiving unconditional love can apply in all your relationships, including friends, coworkers, classmates, or roommates.

    Story
    "Great for learning to be more empathetic"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    If my friend were in need of establishing more empathy with other people, then yes. But as far as a dating guide is concerned, it fell short for me.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Five Love Languages for Singles?

    The best part of the book was when the author described how one person could actually offend the other by offering the wrong love language. For example, one young woman wanted words of affirmation and her boyfriend just wanted to do things for her (service). He couldn't understand why she didn't accept that he loved her enough.


    What does Gary Chapman bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He reads it with a really folksy attitude. It makes you feel like a friend is giving you advice. I didn't give the performance five stars because his voice can become sing-songish at times.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No. It required some thought on my part, so I listened to it in spurts to allow myself time to consider what I had learned.


    Any additional comments?

    This is a wonderful book for people who don't understand why they have trouble making people understand how much they care about them or for people who are wondering why they aren't feeling loved by people in close relationships.

    At times, I got bored, but the author's basic premise is so good that it kept me going. Different people have different ways of communicating love and different ways in which they want to receive love. Learning to recognize these patterns and differences in emotional need is helpful in any relationship.

    There wasn't really a lot of dating advice, but I think the author kept it intentionally general to focus on teaching the love languages. Personally, I found it somewhat too general in that area to call the book "for singles."

    "Just OK"

    There's some good and insightful information in here but it gets pretty repetitive. About midway through, the religious content begins to amp up. That, mixed with repetitive information made it rather hard to continuing listening. I listened all the way to the end, but in the end, I got what I would consider good info within the first 2 hrs of the book.

    Story
    "Means well but boring"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I got more out of the website and the online test for The 5 Love Languages. I didn't really like the narrator's accent. I sped up the recording to make it more interesting/fun but the story was just slow, verbose and I got the point in the first few mins of every chapter. I do think it's helpful to pay attention to the person's love language and reciprocate that way but not sure you need to listen to a whole book about it.


    Has The Five Love Languages for Singles turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    He has a good speaking voice but I didn't love the accent. I felt like this was supposed to be an instructive book and his Southern accent catered more to a more story-oriented type of recording which this was not. Though there are a lot of (unneeded) stories, this is supposed to be a constructive book right?


    Did The Five Love Languages for Singles inspire you to do anything?

    Yes. I do think I need to pay attention to friends' love languages but really it's hard to know. I guess you have to test people. Bc I tend to talk to a lot of my friends via phone, email or text.I may not get them gifts often enough to know that they prefer gifts. And who doesnt' love gifts? I do think it's helpful to know there are different ways though bc in a romantic relationship, I would be most happy with time spent versus gifts and most men don't know this!

    "A slight religious touch"

    The author manages to remind people of the most obvious 'love languages' that we either do not recognize or have forgotten to read in other people. I specifically write 'remind' because all of the languages are well known to me. All in all it is worth reading/listening to. For my personal taste, this book has a bit of a religious touch but maybe that's just the language of Love...

    "Narrow Entrapment"

    This book is the narrow view of some guy named Gary Chapman. It is likely that Gary Chapman has something bigger on his mind than love language between two human beings, and that it can't be spoken without this bigger power in between. Through out this book he offers us two paths usually very opposite like moral and immoral. Does this sound like something you've heard before? Whenever I've heard this in a sermon I wondered if the preacher left some things out in order to help me understand a certain importance.

    Like all good sermons, this book has good qualities and I'd like to give out some stars. But there is another reason I can't do this in good conscience. For the first time in my life I am legally separated and I am finding out just how hard it is to initate the love language when this status is known. In categorizing people who are need of love, he fails to include my group initially. A later attempt to include separated people in the singles catagory limits them to either reconciling with our spouse or going separate ways. Why is this unique to separated people? He could have offered a realistic path to me that didn't include my Ex or trailing off alone. I know this sounds nit-picky to some and you may not consider this a last chance warning to obey a high covenant, but I certainly felt that he missed the mark and didn't offer me practical solutions for my present situation. Fortunately, the legal papers will be processed soon and I'll be offered another two path set of choices by Mr. CHapman. Until then, no stars from me.
