3 things to know about the new app for couples
No, it isn’t for swingers. This app helps strengthen relationships by posing a wide range of questions for couples to answer.
Here are a few things to know:
According to an article in Thrillist written by a woman who gave the app a try:
First we had to enter basic info about our relationship, like whether we’re long distance (no), live together (also no), have kids, (no), and so on. Adding photos was optional, but I’m detail-oriented and uploaded a pic that showcased a good hair and butt day… for me.
Happy Couple presented us each day with five multiple-choice questions exploring six categories: communication, emotion, sex, responsibility, recreation, and information. It’s like a quiz you’d take in Cosmo, but virtual and geared toward men, too — and only takes about three minutes to complete. As we answered the same queries — ranging from small and specific (what’s his/her cuisine of choice?) to big and broad (where does he/she see him/herself living in 10 years?) to fun and sexy (what’s his/her attitude toward phone sex?) — we’d learn if our answers were a ‘perfect match’ or a ‘mismatch.’
According to this article in South Florida Gay News:
By learning more about your partner, you’ll know how they want to be treated when they are sick or what their partner can do to make them feel loved. This way you can treat your partner in the way that they most desire to be treated. Also, the app brings up subjects couples may be too shy to initiate discussions on and this can help couples safely experiment sexually because they may find that they are both interested in trying things that neither were comfortable bringing up. And a better sex always adds positively to a couple’s relationship.
According to this article in Bravo:
When a couple gains points, they move up to higher levels together as a team, and each day also presents a challenge—bring your significant other a small gift, or say something thoughtful.
When a “mismatch” presents itself, it’s a good opening for discussion. The app even provides a message center where you can direct message about it, but they suggest you talk in person and try to sort it out.
After two weeks, if couples are playing often enough, they will have answered more than 100 questions, combined.
