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.

Simple Doctrine

I listened to this after some emotional turmoil and it gave me the sliver of hope that I needed to come out of the pit that I was in. My emotional state determines my mental clarity and this book calmed me and gave me the tools to comprehend the language that I use to communicate love. It helped me to understand me. It will help me understand my partner.

I didn't understand until I heard this book!

I started this book too figure out myself and how to love myself and God! So then I could show the right kind of love to my family and friends! my family loves having me around I'm me patient and loving to everyone I even found someone that fills my love tank completely. We dated in high school friend a short time and over the years have thought of each other and have reconnected I'm not sure what his love language is quite yet but I'm getting there and I don't think I would ever understood things the way I do now thank you Gary Chapman for your whole series of "the five love languages"

If you read the original

This book has widely more information than the original book does and goes a little into what sounds like Dale Carnigie’s how to win friends and influence people, in the final chapter.

Highly recommend.

Enlightening

Love is a powerful tool. No matter how you feel about someone, just keep an open mind and communicate effectively. All of this comes when you learn their love language.

A good read for everyone.

I have read the regular five love languages book and it was great. I decided to read this one also to see what the difference was. I recommend this book to absolutely everyone. it'll teach you some new things if you are in a relationship but it has a lot of very good stuff about how to deal with other people in your life and at work.

I'm blown away and changed forever.

My favorite part was explaining after you get to around the 2-year mark of your dating relationship and the changes in the relationship that naturally occur. I somewhat knew them but the book really explained it and really went so much more in depth. I'm so blown away. I'm in a long distance relationship and I believe it's even more important to work hard on all five love languages. Reading this book really made me realize just how emotionally starved I really am and how important these Love Languages really are to me. Maybe that could be another part of your book that you could add or maybe a separate book entirely. "Long Distance Relationships".
Thank you so much for this valuable insight.

unfortunately a hard listen

I loved the other books, this one was heavily laced with Christian preaching. made it more difficult to hear the messages. as well, I believe there was no new info, you can glean the same info from his main book.

Possibly the most impactful book I have read.

Since I don't find the time to read, Audible has made "reading" possible for me. My genre is personal development and this book, The Five Languages for Singles, was eye opening for not only relationships but for business, family life, friendships... the entire life. What is interesting is that it is written from a Christian perspective and I am Jewish. But, if one reads (or listens) with an open mind and translates from one faith to the other (after all, Jesus was a nice Jewish boy trying to get people to come back to the Torah), the messages in this book are incredibly revealing for anyone who struggles with relationships with partners, spouses, children, parents, friends, co-workers... just about anyone! Highly recommend this book!
