Why You’ll Love Them

The Five Love Languages (Singles Edition) by Gary Chapman

We’ve all heard of the 5 love languages – how to show your partner you care, how does your partner show they care about you. Singles edition is exactly what it sounds like. It discusses the ways your love language impacts your dating relationships and the way you choose a partner.

The Gifts of Imperfection and Daring Greatly by Brene Brown

If there has been an author that has influenced me professionally it’s Brene Brown. In these books she talks a lot about the power and courage behind being vulnerable. It’s hard to be content with being ourselves flaws and all, this is yet more prominent in a dating situation. These books will help you realize it’s ok to be yourself.

The Highly Sensitive Person in Love by Elaine N. Aron

This is a book I recommend to people all the time. It’s really hard to be in a relationship when you’re not entirely confident and comfortable with yourself. If you’ve been hurt before, it’s perfectly reasonable to expect to be hurt again – it’s just not the most healthy foundation to build a relationship on. This book will help you learn how to deal with your insecurities in a more productive way.
