Gary Chapman, PhD
Love Languages

Based on the concept that each one of us has a primary love language, which when spoken fills up our emotional “love tanks,” Dr. Chapman helps us identify, understand, and speak a partner’s primary love language: quality time, words of affirmation, gifts, acts of service, and physical touch. According to Dr. Chapman, if we can learn that and choose to do it, then the love we share will be exciting beyond anything we ever felt when we were infatuated. Dr. Gary Chapman is the director of Marriage and Family Life Consultants, Inc., and is the author of The Five Love Languages.
