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.

    "Digressing too much"

    The original Love Languages book was better - pretty clear without too much digression. I had hoped this version would be directed more at every other aspect of life, including work, friends, and family, but it focuses on dating, as opposed to married, people and only sprinkles in other relations in the end of the book.

    Furthermore, this version spends too much time off topic conveying religious and political ideals. It distracts from the otherwise splendid idea and moves away from the original anthropological research that emotional language spans several cultures and nations.

    It still contains the framework of five languages, but I didn't get more facets out of this book than the original. That is too bad, because it could really have been great.

    I would recommend this book to a heterosexual, monogamous, and conservative Christian who is in a dating relationship and would like to understand why s/he and the partner react in certain ways.

    "Fantastic!"

    Very good listen and well read, too. It was very helpful in learning about the love languages of myself and those around me; I'm sure I'll be much more aware of how I'm loving myself and other people in the near future!

    "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!

    "straightforward good advice"

    short, sweet and to the point... simple yet brilliant concept... I could have done without the Christian angle but in light of author's education and occupation, it's understandable... his advice, at its core, is good, useful, effective and easy to apply... totally worth the listen and if u r reading it, it's easier to skip the unnecessary parts...
