Research has found that using the Paired app each day for about five minutes – answering daily questions and couple quizzes, playing fun games together, and having meaningful conversations with your partner – can increase happiness for couples by 36%; according to the study by the University of Brighton in the UK. The research showed:
Relationship quality improved over three months’ use of Paired
Couples’ communication quality saw a particular improvement, with almost all participants reporting that they and their partner communicate openly, after three months’ use
Couples who regularly use the app (six-seven days per week) report higher relationship quality than those who use it less often
Named as one of the best apps of 2020 by Apple and Google, here are five reasons why couples and experts love Paired:
Every great relationship is an ongoing conversation. Whether you're already in a long-term relationship or have recently met, the Paired app helps make these conversations fun and useful by offering unique content daily on topics designed to improve your relationship.
“When I downloaded this app, my partner and I were barely talking. We were not communicating well at all. Through this app we started talking and laughing, and it really helped us dig deeper.” ★★★★★ App Store Review August 2021
In a long-term relationship, it’s easy to fall into the habit of inattention to the details of each other’s lives and for curiosity about your latest hobbies and interests to lessen. Emotionally intelligent couples, on the other hand, are intimately familiar with each other’s world and keep updating their information as the thoughts, feelings and tastes of their partners change.
“Married almost 9 years and recently discovered this app. I have been telling everyone how much we are enjoying it! Amazing how we still have so many little things to learn about one another. Would completely recommend for any relationship status - from “talking” to married 20+ years” ★★★★★ App Store Review September 2021
When it comes to a healthy sex life, countless studies have found that communication is key, yet many partners avoid talking about their sexual wants and needs for fear of feeling awkward, saying the wrong thing, or offending their partner in the process – this can impact the relationship as a whole. The Paired app opens up the conversation in a healthy way, offering quizzes, questions and expert tips to help you approach even the touchiest of subjects.
“I love this app! It has helped me and my husband be able to openly talk about sex and our sexual desires” ★★★★★ Play Store Review June 2021
Disagreements are normal – there are going to be things that we don’t agree with our partners on, and this doesn’t mean that the relationship is doomed. It's how we choose to engage with our partners when we disagree that matters, so choosing kindness and respect while working to understand each other’s point of view is important.
“This app is a great way to start healing and realizing the positive things in our relationship. Thank you” ★★★★★ App Store Review June 2021
Happy couples pepper their relationship with fun activities that get them laughing, relaxing together, or discovering something new and surprising about each other. The Paired app has a library of couple games designed to help you learn about each other in a fun way, as well as hundreds of questions to keep you curious about each other.
I tried this app out, a little skeptical at first given that I do not enjoy couples therapy. To my genuine surprise, I found that the daily questions were actually fun to go through with my partner, and we’ve discovered things about each other that have been really insightful.” ★★★★★ App Store Review September 2021
“Super easy to use! My husband and I have been enjoying answering the questions, quizzes, etc. every day and have been more aware of each other's needs.” ★★★★★ App Store Review September 2021
