Are you looking for the best couples app to foster your relationship? You've come to the right place. I'll walk you through the top three apps to consider to build your relationship for years to come. Apps for couples can be a convenient, creative, and motivating method to grow deeper in your connection and to even rebuild a crumbling relationship.
What are apps for couples?
Apps for couples are applications installed on your phone to foster your relationship. Depending on the app, the benefits can include increased communication, teamwork, physical closeness, and feelings of love.
3 Apps for Couples To Try
1-Keep the Glow
Obviously I'm biased since I developed Keep the Glow, but it's my top rated app for couples. Read below to understand why.
Everyone begins relationships feeling madly in love. Why, because their love buckets are full. We all have a love bucket inside of us and we need certain things to fill it up to make us feel loved and satisfied. Imagine your partner like a faucet and in the beginning they were doing an amazing job filling up your love bucket because they were doing and saying all the right things. Their faucet was on full blast!
However, through the years of being together they've turned down the faucet either intentionally or unintentionally and are now barely putting any water into your love bucket. Instead, they've begun doing behaviors that make you feel negative towards them, which creates a hole in the bottom of your bucket and water starts leaking out. Before long, the full love bucket you had in the beginning of your relationship that made you feel in love with your partner becomes lower and lower until eventually it runs dry, which is when couples fall out of love.
So, the key to resurrecting any relationship and staying in love is to start doing the fillers your partner desires and stop doing the drainers they dislike. This may sound easy to do but often involves a learning curve. You first must learn what your partner's fillers and drainers are, then how they are defining their terms, then you must begin the process of changing your behaviors to maximize their fillers and minimize their drainers. If you do this long enough, you'll become irresistible to your partner!
The Keep the Glow couples app is designed to help you do this successfully.
Here are two tips to use this app for couples successfully.
First, don't ever tell your partner you can't meet one of their fillers because it's "not who you are" because that will turn your relationship into a prison for them. Instead, lean in and do all you can to improve, even if it's not your natural bent, because your effort will honor your partner.
Second, avoid the trap of getting defensive or defeated when getting feedback on how well you've filled your partner's love bucket. Defensive says "it's not my fault" and defeated says "why try, I'm never going to figure this out." Both are toxic! Instead, have the heart of a student when getting feedback. Good students are teachable, eager to learn, and ask lots of questions on how to improve!
2-Gottman Card Decks
The Gottman Card Deck couples app provides helpful questions for couples to learn more about one another. Getting to know your partner needs to be an ongoing quest because they are continually changing, just as you are. This app for couples provides a helpful format to get to know your partner over and over again. What makes you mad, sad, glad, and happy today is different compared to one month ago, 6 months ago, or 1 year ago. Your internal workings is referred to as your love map. Just like maps of major cities are continually changing, so is your love map. Therefore, it makes sense to have a method to continually learn about your partner and for them to learn about you.
Between is a great app for couples to capture special moments together. Some examples may include trips together, anniversaries, birthdays, special date nights, etc. Think of it as a picture album couples app for your relationship. Memories are one of the fondest things of any relationship. Therefore, it makes sense to have a convenient method to capture them with your partner. Between is an excellent app for couples to capture and remember their special moments together. Even reviewing special memories with your partner occasionally can strengthen your relationship.
