The Five Love Languages for Singles

The Five Love Languages for Singles by Gary Chapman is a good book to read. It would be something to read and discuss with a friend or a group of people, but even if no one you know is reading it, I would still recommend it. The purpose is to help people understand more about relationships and loving people. Chapman's premise is that there are five ways that people feel loved-words of affirmation, gifts, acts of service, quality time, and physical touch-and if you know how the people around you feel loved, you can focus on those things to insure that they are getting the message you want them to. Parts of the book make me realize if I am more proactive in my relationships with family and friends, they can improve and become more live giving instead of frustrating.

I was telling my friend a little bit about the book and she asked if love languages are different for single people, but I said no, that the book and the examples in it are geared toward singles. Other books on the five love languages are The Five Love Languages (for married couples), The Five Love Languages of Children, The Five Love Languages of Teenagers, and The Love Languages of God, all by Gary Chapman.
