Your Personal Assistant for Relationships
Between busy schedules and long days, expressing love can sometimes fall by the wayside. We forget to give gifts “just because,” offer compliments, or linger in our embraces. The things that say “I love you” seem to either not get said or not get through. As a result, our relationships can easily erode and the spark can fade.
Love Nudge is a fun, habit-forming app that helps you intentionally express love in ways that are most meaningful to your partner. Designed for real-life connection, Love Nudge takes the concepts of Dr. Gary Chapman’s #1 New York Times best-seller The 5 Love Languages® to the next level. You and your loved one can learn each other’s love languages, exchange encouraging and playful nudges, set and track activity goals, and monitor the levels of each other’s love tanks for better communication and intimacy. It’s like having a personal assistant… for your relationship.
The 5 Love Languages® by Dr. Gary Chapman has helped millions of couples strengthen their relationships… one language at a time. For almost two decades, The 5 Love Languages® has stood unrivaled as a top resource for love and relationships.
NOTE: Love Nudge relies on a consistent internet connection. If you’re not connected when you launch the app, or if you disconnect while you’re using the app, Love Nudge will not perform as it should.
I love the 5 Languages series. I have read them all and have taught some classes based on them. But the Love Tank meter has a serious flaw—you can’t update your love tank level unless you change the percentage. My wife and I have been in a new and incredible season of our love life together. When I first opened the app my love tank was 100% full and hasn’t diminished in the seven days since. I would love to be able to update the app do my amazing and wonderful wife could know that she has kept my love tank at overflowing for so many days in a row, but the only way I can accomplish an update would be to artificially lower the number from 100% and that would likely crush her. She has always had such a hard time speaking my love language(s) but lately she has been doing such an incredible job and I can’t use this one possible method to encourage her to keep pressing forward. She deserves the kudos and I really want her to gain the confidence she deserves from knowing my love tank has remained at an overflowing state for so many days in a row.
I’ll just start out by saying that I think this is a terrific idea, and the app is flawlessly designed. It’s a great way to learn more about your significant other and express love in ways that are most meaningful to them. Reminders are very good, and there are plenty of terrific ideas for each love language contained in the app.
Caveat: both parties need to be on board and willing to commit to both use it, otherwise there is potential for some seriously hurt feelings. If you both want to build your relationship up, this could be a valuable tool to help with that. If one party is disinterested, it’s easy to get discouraged. I’m now the only person in my marriage using the app now, but that’s okay. Unconditional love is just that!
My wife and I had some drastic schedule changes in the last couple months that had us both running on empty. This app gave us a reminder of what we know, and a simple but effective way to prompt one another on how to get back up to full. After two days of using the app my wife and I are both filled up. Also, I like that the goals can be given a frequency to remind me to do the things that she needs instead of dwelling on the things I want.
I give the app 3 stars because it doesn’t seem very sticky. There’s room to turn this into something that’s life changing rather than just helpful. I’d like to see more suggestions that could help us get new ideas when we feel stuck. Another thing that could help is adding quiz questions for one another to help us better learn each other’s love languages. My final thought is it may be interesting to have reports on when the Love tank is most likely to be empty. For example – tracking the hour updated and the date could show if the morning or evening is when we should be more proactive.
