The world-renowned book called “The 5 Love Languages” written by Gary Chapman gives insight and hope to millions struggling with romantic relationships. I decided to write about this book because understanding Chapman’s concepts can be helpful for autistic adults. What I like about this book is that it gives structure and concrete steps to help neurodiverse adults with dating and romantic relationships.
What are the 5 love languages, and how can they help neurodiverse adults?
“Your romantic partner had a long stressful day and you want to show them you love and care for them.”

TIP: If your romantic partner has a confidant, like a best friend or family member, you can also ask them for advice on how to speak your partner’s love language. They can help you brainstorm some great ideas!
