It’s your first date, and after the usual “So, what do you do?” and “Tell me about your family” an awkward silence ensues…looks like it’s time for an icebreaker! Couples: Better Relationship has a ton of questions that you can ask your date/wife/whatever that will be sure to keep the conversation going, like: “How do you feel about couples who use the bathroom together?” If that’s not a question that is most vital in a relationship, I don’t know what is! With this app, you don’t even need to see each other, both of you can just answer the questions which will be posed on your “secret wall.” Makes dating so much easier.

Love ++ by Cocoon
This app has all sorts of interesting facts you didn’t know about love. Definitely a conversation starter, again for those awkward silences at the dinner table. Did you know that a man’s beard grows faster when he anticipates sex? Also according to this app more than 10,000 couples’ relationships start at coffee shops, even the singles benefit from this app!
Romantic Ideas 500 by Michael Quach
I must say that these ideas aren’t really brilliant or anything you can’t come up with yourself “cuddle with your partner on the sofa and watch a movie.” Wow, what a great idea! Why didn’t I think of that? But for those who really don’t know what to do with their lovers I suppose that’s an idea.
Badoo by Badoo Services Ltd
More ideas for the date-less: download Badoo and look who’s around and interested in getting to know you. You can use it to look up who else is in that bar, to grab lunch with someone new, maybe even go to a coffee shop! Creeping around has never been easier.
My Love Life by IAG Ideas, LLC
Apparently this app is only free on Valentine’s Day, so download it. You can keep track of your dates, how much you spent on them and whether or not that led to sex, and if it did, what positions you tried. You can even schedule your next sex adventure and keep track of the ways you flirted. And if it’s all working out pretty well for you, there’s even a button to brag about it on facebook. Fabulous.
But seriously, the best idea for Valentine’s Day tonight is sitting on your comfortable couch, with pizza and beer, watching American Icon: Muscle Car, One of a Kind and Chasing Classic Cars on Velocity. If your girlfriend really loves you, she’d understand.
