It's All About Love & a new language to speak it
This is one book which I read only as recently as 2 years ago. This is one of the most recent in a series of self help books I've read over the last 2 decades. As with John Gray's famous book on Men are from Mars & Women are from Venus, Gary Chapman in his Five Love Languages highlights the differences in the way to connect either between the sexes, or between individuals. Gray places emphasis on differences between women and men while Chapman emphasizes on the differences between individuals …

I found myself amazed as I read this book.   The author so perfectly captured the feelings, thoughts, and emotions I had - the ones I thought nobody else felt or would understand.      Gary Chapman lists the 5 common ways in which human beings I)receive and II)give love from and to one another. The 5 ways are,      1. Physical Touch (don't think sex - think hugs, back-rubs, holding hands, touching arm/shoulder)   2. Quality Time (Movies, …

Love this book. No wonder it's so highly recommended! I've never thought about this aspect of relationships before, but Gary Chapman divvies up and explains everything so well. Very highly recommended for anyone looking to get and give more out of any type of relationship.

I have read Gary Chapman's "The Five Love Languages" four times now, and each time is enlightening about the way couples relate to each other. Such a good reminder of why I am married and how to be better at it.      I had never thought about love languages - how we show and receive love - before reading this, let alone considered that we all may have different languages. When it's broken down like that, the task of communicating in a marriage (one of my many …

I recommend this book to all couples. It is amazing how the author can get it so right on.  As I read the book I felt like the author was inside my relationship because there is no way he could know these things.         I recommend this book especially to new couples that are still learning about each other. If you can figue out your love language and your partner's you will have a great asset in your relationship.     Author states there …

The Five Love Languages can really revolutionize your relationship.  Most of us love our spouses the way we prefer love to be demonstrated toward us.  If we especially enjoy affection, we give affection.  However we may have failed to understand that our spouse may have a completely different need.  Affection may be fine but his greatest love language may be quality time spent together.  If you give him tons of affection but fail to spend time with him, you are not meeting …

five love languages great book
The five Love languages takes an exploratory look into the world of love. It is very inspiring, informative, and practical. As you get deeper and deeper into the book a new world is opened up. This is a book for everyone especially those in relationships or find it hard understanding and expressing love. It is even for those looking for love because it helps you to understand what exactly you are looking for and need in a mate.  The use of five basic principles are clearly explored and expounded …

This is one of my favorite books about communication. I make every boyfriend sort out their "love language" and make sure they know mine. I'm not a fan of self help books or relationship-guru type advice, but Gary Chapman uses his book to convey a very useful discovery that can enrich the life of any relationship.

We should always seek to open up new ways to love our mate. While we may not always feel like things are working out, if we work at it, joy will abound.

A must read...given to me by a tough and burly guy friend who said, "all men must read this book! It help me a lot!"

As a dating and relationship expert, I love and frequently recommend Gary Chapman's "The Five Love Languages" to client as part of their reading list. I'm always amused when I hear some people say something like, "Oh everyone knows this stuff" or something like that. And I think, "Oh really?"     Then why are there so many relationships, pastoral counseling, premarital counseling, marital counseling and couples counseling issues all about what Gary Chapman covers in "The Five …

How many times have you heard a wife exclaim, "I cook and clean for that man, and he never appreciates all that I do for him. I'm so unhappy" or the husband grouse, "Hey, I bought her those diamond earrings. I even get her flowers just to show her how much I love her, and she just throws them back in my face saying that I am just trying to buy her love. She continues on by stating that he never share his feelings. Both don't know the sign of love until it hits them smack in the face.     If …

How's your relationship with your mate? Your children? Your parents? Your siblings? It may be a matter of the state of the "love tank".Author Gary Chapman in his book The Five Love Languages: How to Express Heartfelt Commitment to Your Mate believes everyone has a love tank, and that tank is filled by different love languages. These five languages are Gifts, Words of Affirmation, Quality of Time, Acts of Service, and Physical Touch. Often, we tend to give love in the languages we are most fluent …
