Keep the passion alive in your relationship with these apps

TAMPA, FL (WFLA) — Most of the time, smartphones aren’t romantic, but Media General contributors found ways they can be. There are apps designed to help you and the love of your life keep the passion alive.

From ideas for dates, to playful games like Truth or Dare, there are all kinds of apps couples can play together. Kelly Shaefer and Kayla Congdon use an app called Desire. The couple is planning to get married next month. “I can go and send him a little dare, and then get home and completely forget about it, and all of a sudden he remembers at home,” said Congdon.

Certified clinical sexologist Yvonka De Ridder usually encourages couples to disconnect, but admits some love apps can help relationships.

“It’s like a ‘Hey I’m thinking of you’ throughout the day. And it’s important for you to be able to communicate that or somehow get that message across, and we don’t do that enough. We assume they should just know,” she said.

Some apps are very clever. The Couple App features a virtual “thumb kiss” that works when lovers touch the same part of their screens at the same time.

Other apps quiz couples or feature challenges for one another. Some apps include virtual gifts. See a list of romantic apps below:
