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.

    "The best book on how to love!"

    I was very impressed with this book. No matter what your religious beliefs are, your relationships will be transformed after reading and applying the principles of this book. The premise of this book teaches that there are 5 different ways people give and receive love. Basically, we all tick differently and we all have needs that are met in different ways. Because the author incorporates many real life examples, it is very easy and enjoyable to listen to. This book is designed for singles, but married individuals will learn something also. As singles it shows you how to relate to your future spouse, roommates, co-workers and friends. However, I would recommend his book on marriages for couples. Please take the time listening to this book, it will not only benefit you but all those you come in contact with.

    "Amazingly Insightful and Broadly Useful"

    First of all, it needs to be noted from the outset that this is a religious book and you will be proselytized to / at. Even so, this book is very, very much worth a read.

    This book manages to keep the vast world of interpersonal relationships simple enough to comprehend what to do next, but doesn't try to reduce the complexities of our lives into a tagline. Gary focuses on devising a plan of attack for improving the relationships in our lives, not on making out a set of rules or a proscription for universal success.

    Overall, I feel like he does a great job -- I learned a lot about myself, a lot about many of the people I've dated in the past, and I came to better understand my parents, my sisters, and my co-workers.

    That said, there are a couple of problems with this book that keep it from a five star rating. As I mentioned before, this book is openly religious, and by that I mean Christian. I seldom desire a sermon, and when I do I would like fair warning.

    Secondly, and much more alarmingly, this book has a very sex-negative view of the world, bolstered by some of the shoddiest research I've seen since the last time I watched Bill O'Reilly. Since I was already being preached at, I wouldn't have minded a sermon on the evils of the flesh, but trying to make his arguments seem factual with clearly biased "facts" just insults my intelligence.

    All in all, though, despite one or two uncomfortable moments, an amazingly enlightening read.

    "Everyone should read this book!"

    Basically a book about the different ways individuals show and receive (feel) love and appreciation. Glad I got the singles ones, it talks about how to get more out of your family, friends, housemates, work colleagues etc... and a definite must read for anyone in a relationship or marriage.

    "Excellent"

    Well I am still listening the audiobook now, but the experience is really good. I was searching the Spanish version but it isn’t available so I tried in English. I am very happy with audible.com but some books I prefer to have it in paper because I want to mark and write comments, so I bought the book from Amazon in spanish. Don’t misunderstand me I like it so much this book that’s why I bought it in my language, because is great. Gary Chapman is one of my favorites, I recommend the book for everyone not only for singles.

    "It works"

    I've listened to most of this book several times. The 5 Languages worked as I tried them out on co-workers at the office. The only thing I didn't care much for was the target seemed to be for young singles and I'm an old guy wanting to try again before it's too late. The examples had to much church stuff in it. But Gary is a church guy. So I extracted the content parts I needed.
    Wish he had a book for old folks, that for the most part have given up on finding happiness from a relationship. Much of the tactics were very hard for me. I was married twice, both ended in disaster and this book showed me why. I recently passed up a chance at a beautiful younger (by ten yrs) women at work. I'm so sorry I did that now. I have to live with that every day now. That was before I listened to this book. That's what inspired me to find some self help. Get this book or the one for married couples. It has changed my life.
