Since romantic relationships need more than just spending time together to stay fresh, the new Date Wizard at PearHaven.com was developed to provide a place where couples can discover new date ideas. With Date Wizard, couples click on categories for their desired activities. Date Wizard then quickly suggests new date ideas in their zip code or wherever they want to go then maps out their fun dates such as lazer tag, dessert or dinner and a movie.
These new experiences can help rekindle romance. New York Times writer, Tara Parker-Pope, reports about scientific research by Professor Arthur Aron, a professor of social psychology at the State University of New York at Stony Brook, who says “Rather than visiting the same familiar haunts and dining with the same old friends, couples need to tailor their date nights around new and different activities that they both enjoy. The goal is to find ways to keep injecting novelty into the relationship. The activity can be as simple as trying a new restaurant or something a little more unusual or thrilling — like taking an art class or going to an amusement park.”
Pearhaven was created by founder, David Lackey, so the web could “revolve around couples rather than individuals, while utilizing all of the different sharing aspects of traditional social networks and bringing them into romantic relationships”. The idea for PearHaven was born after a discussion about relationships between Lackey and his girlfriend, which was spurred by a Social Psychology class he was taking at Princeton. The concept came to fruition the following summer. Lackey says, “As the concept started to grow into a reality, we began to discover that what mattered most to our potential users was finding new date ideas. Couples would often be limited to going to the same places just because they weren’t aware of other great date spots."
PearHaven.com is a social website for couple relationships, providing new date ideas using Date Wizard, a place to record actual dates and experiences, earn badges, post photos and to stay connected with other couples.
