When Mr. Rocque and I were just dating, our date nights were a lot more imaginative, creative and exciting. Lately, we’ve fallen into a slump, which in six months of marriage is my biggest pet peeve about our relationship, and not a bad one to have because there are relatively easy solutions. This is what gave me the idea to look up an app specifically geared toward dating. Everyone in the technology age knows that once you search for and find one thing, you open the digital flood gates for related topics and end up spending hours searching and discovering things that may make your life easier and in our case, more entertaining. Aside from the perfect date night app, I found several apps in general that could be good for marriage or any committed relationship. Here are five apps geared toward romance improvement that are worthy of trying out.
Date Night Challenge can be downloaded and tailored specifically toward the city you live in so it’s, “Date Night Challenge: Chicago,” “Date Night Challenge: New York,” and so on. This app includes date night ideas ranging from movies to cool attractions, the scoop on money saving deals, conversation starters, quizzes you can take with your mate and more. It’s appropriate for couples in various stages of their relationships.
Don’t be fooled by stereotypes, for I am the culprit in my marriage when it comes to not remembering important dates. MANSaver is for forgetful people such as myself so that we can keep track of the days and avoid salty feelings or possibly even arguments.
This is exactly what it sounds like. Marriage Fight Tracker is like a virtual therapist. This app allows you to keep track of fights you may have had or continue to have, and it allows you to see what repetitive issues keep surfacing. There’s an old saying that goes, “If you know better, you’ll do better.” So, download this app if you’ve been fighting with your spouse a lot, and put it to good use.
This one’s a no brainer. Step up your physical activity game with sexy new positions in the bedroom. The app’s motto is, “There’s a position for that,” so find out and report back. We’ll do the same.
Kindu is designed to help lovers communicate freely about their desires without being embarrassed. It provides couples with various ideas ranging from soft and pink to mud ring dirty, and you can rate each idea as a “definitely,” “maybe” or “open to discussion.” From there, your partner can rate the same set of ideas and then Kindu cross-matches your responses and lists ideas you both rated in the same category. You take it from there.
Are you open to the idea of using technology to help strengthen your romance?
