I didn't really learn anything in addition to the original "The Five Love Languages". I recommend just sticking with that book. The examples he gave were either people who were currently dating or past tense examples of relationships that have came to an end. This is helpful for identifying what your own or what other's love languages are or have been, but really does nothing to help the single person enter a new relationship. It really did not give a very positive outlook on dating, with dating being something you have to suffer through to hopefully eventually find the person you can live with after years of trial and error. It also paints a negative portrait of singles, that singles are just looking for what is out there to take (not givers) and that there is no way a single person can be truly happy since studies have shown that married individuals are happier and more economically secure. This book would also better if he could cut the church chat and just get to the point. His 1950's views on sex and sexuality got to be downright annoying after awhile.
