In the age of limited attention span and technology where you can download an app and find a new hook-up in 5 seconds flat, where are the apps for people who are sick of wasting their time in relationships that don’t fulfill them? Introducing StayGo a cutting-edge dating app that uses real science to determine the health of your relationships.
I have to admit, being in a committed relationship for 8 years it can be difficult to track progress and overall happiness. With StayGo you are prompted to keep track daily and be more mindful in your relationship goals. Download the app for Andriod or iOS and I will walk you through how to use it.
Sign up/ Sign in
Once you download the app you are prompted to either sign up, or sign in. One thing that’s really great about StayGo is they allow you to sign in using Facebook, which is something I always do when given the chance. It makes logging in seamless and I never have to worry about remembering another password. If you aren’t interested in signing in using Facebook you can create an account using your email address as well.
If you create an account using Facebook StayGo will pull some information directly from your Facebook profile which means less to fill out later on.
Welcome To StayGo
Once you completed your account information you are prompted with a wonderful welcome screen. This screen explains a little more in-depth about what StayGo is and reminding you that all of the information you put into the app is confidential. As a consumer, I appreciate this extra step, specifically with such a private matter like relationships. Great job StayGo!
Step-By-Step – What about you?
Right out of the gate StayGo keeps you in the loop with an easy-to-read guide into using this already super easy-to-use app. This screen will show you how to add your personal information as well as an avatar which you can edit any time.
Step-By-Step – What about your partner?
This screen explains how StayGo helps you evaluate multiple partners and even find out what went wrong with PAST relationships. It also notes that if you aren’t sure on an an answer to leave it blank.
Step-By-Step – Tell us about your relationship
This screen reminds you that some questions might seem a little personal, but that’s how StayGo determines what’s REALLY going on in your love life, so be honest!
What science says
StayGo was developed by a team of behavioral science professors, our SG Score questionnaire takes about 15 minutes to complete. We suggest you finish it in one sitting.
Once you know your SG score
Use the free SG Tracker to follow the ups and downs of your relationship. Fill it out each day, and you’ll soon see your relationship from a whole new perspective.
SG Peeps Feature
This innovative feature helps you find our what your friends and family REALLY think about your relationship. Their responses remain anonymous, so they can be totally honest with you.
Getting used to the app
StayGo makes filling out the information about yourself and your partner a breeze. You start off by filling out your age, location, who you are interested in as well as your information for your partner. From here you can create a nickname for them, add profile pictures and get started on your SG score.
The app itself is very easy to navigate and you can reach the SG Score by clicking on the three lines in the left hand corner which shows you the menu. When you click on the SG Score you are prompted to choose which partner you want to answer questions on. This is a great feature if you are dating multiple people, or wondering what happened in past relationships.
The questions themselves are very interactive. They offer a variety of different questions that really get you thinking and get to the bottom of your relationship. You start out by sliding two hearts as close or as far away as you feel to your partner. There are a lot questions that are answered by sliding scales, which allow you take control and really pinpoint how you feel about any given question. This is impressive to me, because relationships can be complicated and it’s not always as easy as a, “yes” or “no”.
The next few questions really dive into the science of your partner, however if you reach a question that you don’t know the answer to you can always just leave it blank. They do dive into some more intimate questions, which I feel are imperative for overall relationship health. I have tested this particular portion several times and I have to admit, when I am honest in answering the questions my score is always right on the money, so do yourself and your relationship a favor and answer honestly, all of the information is kept confidential.
The next portion walks you through prioritizing your relationship needs. This was another interactive question that I really enjoyed. Relationships are a very personal subject and StayGo really nailed these questions allowing the user to answer personal questions in a way that’s comfortable and simple. The whole time I was taking the quiz I kept thinking, “Wow! They really get it.” – And it makes a lot of sense because StayGo is backed by science.
The next section allows you to list four people in your personal circle, friends or family who have an opinion that matters to you about your relationship. This is different than the SG Peeps Feature, because it allows you to control the sliding scale. You can decide how important each person’s opinion is of your relationship is. From there you get to choose if their opinion is mostly positive or negative, again I appreciated how these questions allowed the user to feel in-control of such a personal topic.
After a few more questions your SG Score is revealed and from here you will get a short explanation of your score as well as a numerical score from 0-100. Again, I’ve taken this quiz many times and I tried to change my questions and I found that when answered honestly the score is always correct. The magic of StayGo doesn’t stop there, no, we are just getting started! They break down each question and explain it in a short blurb. From closeness, personal growth,, passion to finances- they cover it all and you will walk away with a brand new (scientific) perspective on your relationships that will help keep you mindful and aware in areas you need to work on if you chose to stay, or perhaps the honest answers that you have been avoiding and a realization that it may be time to go.
Answer three quick questions daily to track your relationship. These questions are answered with a sliding scale, which is perfect because it helps you keep track of your relationship health from a daily perspective. I really loved this feature specifically, because when you are in a long-term relationship it’s easy to forget some day-to-day things, but StayGo is all about making the most out of your one life and making sure you are staying on track with healthy, fulfilled relationships.
All-in-all StayGo is a must-have app for the mindful millennial who is tired of wasting time and energy on relationships that don’t fulfill them. Download the app HERE and tell us what you loved most about StayGo in the comments below!
