Find, Foster or Forget Love on Valentine’s Day with 3 Apps

Tomorrow is Hallmark’s hallmark holiday, a celebration of loved ones, symmetrical hearts, and lots of candy. Load your phone with these apps, whether you’re looking for love, already in deep, or loving the single life.


Users on HowAboutWe pitch dates that they and other users could go on, making the platform more about offline and going out than chatting and swiping left. You can join and download the app for free, but to see matches and set up offline dates, you’ll have to join (~$8/month). HowAboutWe also offers date ideas for couples, so once you’ve found someone, you can switch your membership to receive free dates and ideas from their curators. HowAboutWe is available free from iTunes and Google Play.


Keep your PDA under wraps by using Couple, an app built specifically for communications between two people in a relationship. You can text privately, add photos, pin your location, draw images and even “thumb kiss,” where you press your thumb to your smartphone screen and your SO does the same. Couple is available free from iTunes and Google Play.


Find the party in your city with Sosh. With the best new bars, restaurants, shows, and outings being added weekly, you can always find a new adventure or a new avenue to explore, by yourself, with friends, or with your Valentine. Sosh is available free from iTunes.
