If you aren’t consistently trying new things with your partner and making an effort to show you love them, the relationship is going to get stale, even if you both have been together for years.
Every single relationship could stand to improve in one way or another. Whether that’s learning how to honor the other’s love language or simply learning more about them through fun quizzes and thought-provoking questions, relationships need something new to occasionally shake them up.
Here are the best apps you should check out right now to rekindle that spark between you and your significant other.
1. Love Nudge
The Love Nudge app revolves around love languages. And if you haven’t heard of love languages before, there are five: Physical Touch, Quality Time, Words of Affirmation, Receiving Gifts, and Acts of Service.
There’s a quick 30-question quiz in the app you and your partner can both take to see what your primary love language is, as well as how strongly you rank in the other four languages.
Once you take the quiz and learn your and your partner’s strongest love language, the app helps you carry out tasks and goals that represent your partner’s love language. For example, suppose your partner’s love language is primarily Quality Time. In that case, the app gives examples of things you can do together, like having a movie night, playing cards together, or going out to dinner.
Lovewick is an excellent app for couples who want to know more about one another and find ways to constantly rekindle the spark in the relationship. The app has question cards, which are fantastic at dinnertime, with unique prompts and not just boring old “What’s your favorite animal?” type questions.
There are creative date ideas, so it’s not always up to you or your partner to come up with something fun to do. And if you need other ideas to carry out a sweet gesture or spice up your sexual life, Lovewick has you covered there too.
Lovewick also has a section in the app titled Forget-me-nots. Both you and your partner can fill out this section with unique info, like your favorite comfort food or your coffee order. That’ll help when you want to do something sweet randomly, or you’re trying to find the perfect anniversary gift.
3. Been Together
The premise of this app is super simple; when you first open the app, you enter the day you started dating or your wedding anniversary. Then, the app automatically calculates the number of days it’s been since that anniversary date.
You can add a picture of you and your significant other and even change the background picture to personalize things. You can enter as many anniversaries as you want to, like the first day you kissed or said “I love you” to one another.
Desire is a fun game for you and your significant other to play occasionally or every day. It’s basically like Truth or Dares in app form, except it’s only dares.
The game has different categories to choose from, like Dress Code, Outdoor, and Love Sensations. Then, each dare has points that correspond with the difficulty of the dare. The app uploads tons of new dares every week, so there’s always something fresh to try out.
As you and your partner complete dares, your points add up. If you’re competitive, this is a fun way to challenge your partner to see who can complete the most dares.
Although several money and budgeting apps allow you to share a profile with your partner, most of them aren’t specifically designed for couples. That is, except for Honeydue. You can track all your finances, from credit card balances to monthly bills to savings for different categories.
What’s awesome about Honeydue is that you can chat within the app. So, it’s easy for you to see what the other person is talking about if they mention a discrepancy in a bill or an estimated payoff date for a credit card. You can also split expenses with whatever percentage you want, set reminder notifications, and more.
The Between app is a great option for couples that combines multiple different needs in the relationship. Firstly, you can easily store photos, videos, and notes within the app. And even if you change phones, later on, you’ll still have access to everything since it’s saved in the app.
Secondly, you can also chat privately with your partner and even make video calls for free. There’s also a calendar view where you can see all your and your partner’s upcoming appointments. You can track special anniversaries here too, and quickly see how many days are left until that anniversary.
7. Couple Game: Relationship Quiz
Couple Game is the perfect app if you want to learn more about your partner or if you just love spending time with them and answering fun question cards. The app has question packs with different themes, like Looks & Beauty, Health & Hygiene, Date Night, Leisure & Vacation, and more.
Each question pack is full of fun, open-ended questions that get you and your significant other talking, potentially about things you’ve never discussed before. Then, you’ll find conversation starter questions and pre-designed coupons that give you fabulous ideas to surprise your partner. You can also create your own coupons if you don’t see one you like.
8. Lasting: Marriage Health
This last app is mainly for couples who need extra help settling significant issues with their relationship. Lasting is a couples therapy app that makes it super easy and affordable to work on your relationship on a deeper level.
If you don’t want to spend any money off the bat, there are plenty of free resources in the app. Lasting’s Foundation series has five sessions that cover the basics of relationship health. Plus, all of the app’s conversation-starters, relationship reminders, and single sessions are free.
Or, there’s Lasting Premium, which gives you and your partner access to much more content. You’ll find sessions on communication, trust, money, appreciation, emotional connection, sexual connection, and more.
Relationships Take a Lot of Work and Patience
It’s no secret that a relationship won’t thrive if both parties aren’t invested in keeping the relationship afloat. Although an app certainly won’t fix major issues in a relationship, it can help reignite the spark between you and your partner and keep that flame burning.
Downloading one of these apps and learning more about your partner and your relationship is a step in the right direction. A healthy relationship is all about communicating and learning about your partner, and that’s what these apps help you do.
If your relationships have been rocky, you may want to learn more about your attachment style and work your way towards a healthy one.
