Except now there's a new app called Happy Couple, which is actually designed to strengthen existing bonds between people in established relationships. And though I was skeptical, it couldn't hurt to try. So I put on my most convincing face and promised Jeremy Happy Couple would probably be just like Pokémon Go. And with that, we both hit download (it's free!), and put the app to the test for two weeks.
Phone sex, suburbs, and beyond
First we had to enter basic info about our relationship, like whether we're long distance (no), live together (also no), have kids, (no), and so on. Adding photos was optional, but I'm detail-oriented and uploaded a pic that showcased a good hair and butt day… for me.
Happy Couple presented us each day with five multiple-choice questions exploring six categories: communication, emotion, sex, responsibility, recreation, and information. It's like a quiz you'd take in Cosmo, but virtual and geared toward men, too -- and only takes about three minutes to complete. As we answered the same queries -- ranging from small and specific (what's his/her cuisine of choice?) to big and broad (where does he/she see him/herself living in 10 years?) to fun and sexy (what's his/her attitude toward phone sex?) -- we'd learn if our answers were a "perfect match" or a "mismatch."
