A new iPhone app allows uncertain girlfriends to review their feelings towards their boyfriend from an objective point of view.
Chicago-based programmer Sarah Gray created the app ‘Should I Break Up With My Boyfriend?’ in her living room when working through a tumultuous relationship several years ago.
Gray said that she realised she was up and down on a daily basis and wanted to track her feelings about the relationship from an objective perspective.
The clever app requires girlfriends to rate how they feel about their boyfriends on a daily basis as well as recording their feelings.
It then analyses the data and reveals how the user’s feelings fluctuated in comparison to their general outlook on life.
“Being able to see your relationship clearly and objectively is the first step on the path to a happy, healthy, love life — whether it’s with him, with someone else, or on your own for a while,” the Daily Mail quoted Gray as saying.
“Sometimes, we need an objective voice to help us appreciate a good thing or accept something painful. And this app helps us tap into the voice inside ourselves,” she said.
Users can also share results with trusted friends via email or SMS.
