This Happy Couple App Is Actually For Not-So-Happy Couples
How ironic, how sad
We find dates digitally, so it was only a matter of time before we actually dated digitally. Begrudgingly, that is, because the thought of getting to know a partner through virtual quizzes and point systems sounds a little impersonal. But here we are, and here is Happy Couple, the "fun, quiz-style game to discover what your partner really thinks."
Through the course of 1,200 quizzes, couples answer personal questions that will then be sent to their partner to answer. If the partner gets it right, hooray! Points. If the partner gets it wrong, then prepare to face the consequences of not knowing your lover's stance on things like monogamy and what they like to do after sex. You know, topics that should probably be discussed or known before even signing up for this app. Anyway, if the answers don't match, there is a chat function (digital, of course, because real life confrontation between two people that could potentially love one another is hard). Couples blow through the quizzes by doing five of them per day. It offers relationship tips and 300 activities to do with your partner.
The app was cofounded by a psychologist, so the tips and tricks aren't all for naught. Happy Couple could be the very thing that ignites a passionate conversation offline, in real time and real life. However, if you're relying on the app to have those big couple conversations, you may want to rethink your relationship—again, offline, in real time and real life.
