Becoming a parent is time consuming. Taking care of children can make it hard to make time for everything else, your relationship included. However, research shows that making time for you and your partner each day results in much happier relationships.
With these things in mind, Paired has strategically designed the app to help parents! Each day, you and your partner will both receive a “question of the day”. The questions are designed by in-house relationship experts and cover a variety of important relationship topics. This small daily exercise is designed to spark meaningful conversations in just a few minutes a day. Best of all, you both can record your answers and discuss whenever you have the time!
Speaking of quality time, a common “side-effect” of parenting is that couples stop being intimate. Sometimes couples just need a little reminder to make time for it, or sometimes they just need a little help bringing the spice back into the relationship. For couples looking to keep it light and easy, Paired offers games, quizzes, and questions all specifically designed to reignite the spark and help you discuss each other's fantasies. Paired also works with leading sex and relationship therapists to develop advice and exercises for couples who want more help in this area.
Oftentimes, couples who are also parents, forget to keep dating each other! Going on a fun adventure, reliving some of your best memories together, or going on a romantic dinner for two is vital to keeping romance alive for parents. Paired makes sure you keep dating your partner! Not sure where to go or what to do? Paired has spontaneous “date night” suggestions and even allows you to play games to keep it interesting. Not to mention, Paired has a unique "couples check-in" feature each week, so these things don't slip through the cracks.
Remember what it feels like to go on that first date again with your partner? The spark, excitement, and romance of a date doesn’t have to be a thing of the past for parents.
One of the most important aspects of romance is communication. Listening to your partner and being heard yourself. It’s easy for parents to stop talking about new things, and focusing solely on their children and being a parent full-time. However, experts in relationship counseling all say that one of the cornerstones of romance is communication. Talking to each other as lovers, partners, and friends will keep the romance alive and leave you feeling more satisfied in your relationship. How can Paired help? Independent research from the Open University in the United Kingdom has shown that more than 80% of couples say they felt closer and more in touch with their partner after using Paired for just 7 days.
