The 5 Love Languages

Although Dr. Chapman’s book “The 5 Love Languages” was originally written in 1992, it continues to help couples today. Before writing the book, Dr. Chapman spent years taking notes with couples he was counseling when he recognized a pattern. He realized that the couples were misunderstanding one another and each other’s needs.

After going through his notes, he came up with five love languages that people may respond to:

  • Words of affirmation
  • Quality time
  • Physical touch
  • Acts of service
  • Receiving gifts
