Go beyond, "How was your day?" with an open-ended question game
A simple "How was your day?" can lead to great conversation, but, let's be honest, most of the time it doesn't. The Discovery Card game sparks exploration and deepens your connection through questions that may not come up day-to-day. There's always something new to learn about each other.
The "decks" span everything from personality and beliefs to money and sex. Why? Research shows that sharing our hopes, beliefs, turn-ons, mistakes, and more with our partner (self-disclosure) is associated with higher relationship quality and lower rates of divorce (Finkel, 2017)!
Try new things together, inspired by research & other couples
You know the phrase, "It's the thought that counts"? Hate to say it, but it's kinda BS when it comes to relationships. It's actions that build memories, and memories are what count. But, life is busy! It's easy to let great ideas for dates, trips, and romantic gestures get lost in the shuffle of everyday life.
Get inspiration from Community Ideas and then keep track of all the things you want to do with Relationship Goals. Research suggests that you are significantly more likely to achieve a goal that you write down and share with someone, so start with something small today (Matthews, 2015).
Remember the little things that matter, all in one safe place
A big part of being thoughtful is remembering the little things -- coffee orders, shoe sizes, favorite pizza toppings -- but it can be hard to keep track of it all, honestly! Maybe you're like us and have tried to keep this info in the Notes section of your phones... complete & utter chaos, right?
"Forget-me-nots" is a safe place to write down important dates, favorites, and anything else that would be helpful when you are trying to make each other feel special. Fill out a few things that are important to each of you, and then add as you learn more through Discovery Cards and life together.

My girlfriend and I don’t get to see each other in person much, so we rely a lot on FaceTime. The questions help us go deeper and explore a ton of things that wouldn't have come up otherwise.

Message from our Founder
Hey! I'm Ali, and I founded Lovewick to help couples stay in love, without it feeling like "work".
I've always been a relationship nerd, and Lovewick has grown out of my academic and personal experiences. At Stanford, I studied Human Biology and realized that there's a ton of research that can help us improve our relationships -- unfortunately it’s often tucked away in confusing, paywalled academic papers. In grad school, I explored societal trends related to romantic relationships. There’s been a lot of change in a short amount of time! In America, ~40% of people have met a romantic partner online, we are getting married later or not at all, and there are more dual income, intercultural, interracial, long-distance, and LGBTQ+ couples than ever before. I’m inspired by new opportunities and challenges in this era of modern love, and, to be honest, I’ve had a lot of first-hand experience (but we’ll save those stories for another time!).
Lovewick isn't couples therapy, and it isn't just for fun. It's a couples app that helps you and your partner learn about each other and share new experiences, rooted in insights from academics, therapists, and real couples like you. We have a small, passionate team, and this is just the beginning of our journey, so we appreciate your support and welcome any feedback. Thank you!
