Long Distance Relationships Inspired “Pair”

March 24, 2012 § 5 Comments


Have you ever been in a long-distance relationship? If you have, you know it’s not easy. Nick and I dated long distance, New York to Toronto, for two years before I decided to move to New York. That wasn’t the end though, we tacked another 8 months onto the two years while I was stuck in Canada, waiting for my engagement visa.

It seems only the strongest, most stubborn make it, but things are getting easier with today’s technology. Blackberry Messenger was our saving grace, but now there’s something that seems even better – a new iPhone app called Pair.

The app includes a feature called “thumb kiss” that vibrates when both parties touch the same spot on the screen. Couples can also co-create drawings, maintain a joint to-do list and send a “thinking of you” message that works like a more thoughtful Facebook poke.

Three of the five men who created Pair are currently in long-distance relationships. I bet they won bigtime points with their ladies for this development!

Do you think this app is adorable or nauseating? I’d love to hear your thoughts on long-distance relationships!
