Developed together with sex & relationship experts
Each activity takes less than 15 minutes. Small things add up!
This is for the adults in the house 😎
We are a small, early stage startup working on a big dream — to help couples with kids feel more like lovers and less like roommates.
While our app is still in development, we felt a sense of urgency to do our part to help families in and coming out of lockdown. Now.
So we've quickly curated a collection of exercises from our library to form this Love in Lockdown series for you.
We hope this free Love in Lockdown series will help provide some needed support for parents.
It really does take a village to raise a family, and we hope this Love in Lockdown series will do its part to help our virtual village come out stronger, together.
Y'all stay safe, healthy & in love,
the Gilly Team
Our founder, Erin Chen, is a trained sex & relationship counsellor passionate about making life easier for parents (she's one too). If you're curious, this is her TEDx talk: "The secret ingredients to sexual intelligence"
1. Do I need to do this with my partner?
We found that couples who join Gilly together have higher satisfaction. For now, both of you need to sign up in order to receive the treats.
2. How do I invite my partner?
Once you sign up, you will receive an invitation link to share with your partner. They will need to accept your invite before you both start to receive your treats!
3. Will my partner see what I write in my exercises?
No, they do not automatically see what you share. We will let you know whenever your answers are shared with your partner.
4. Do we need to do all of the exercises?
If you'd like! But it's not a must. We want to help add lightness to your day, not more stress. The intention of Gilly is to be a friendly nudge and reminder to remember your relationship well-being.
5. Is this therapy?
While Gilly is designed with inputs from professionals from related fields, it is not therapy. Its content is provided for information purposes only and is not intended as medical advice, or as a substitute for the professional advice of clinical practitioners.
6. I'm a professional working with couples and I would like to suggest Gilly to them as a tool to complement their work with me. Can I do that?
Yes! This is a great way to use Gilly. Do not hesitate to contact us at hello[at]getgilly[dot]com if you have any questions or suggestions — we would love to hear from you.
7. What if I don't want to receive treats anymore?
You can text STOP anytime and you will no longer receive any messages from Gilly.
