Back in early 2013 I had just successfully gotten back together with my ex and gained some notoriety amongst my friends as someone that has rekindled his love. Something many of them hadn’t done before.
At one point, two of my other friends came to me for advice with their breakup. Being a good friend (duh), I offered to help, but I soon noticed a pattern. They were both asking me pretty much identical questions.
“What if she doesn’t text me back?”
“How long do I wait to talk to them?”
“What if she’s seeing someone else?”
“What if she’s not?”
“What if she moves on?”
Being a systematic person, I thought what would be the most efficient use of my time in giving them advice. Having to repeat the same advice to different people just seemed dumb.
*The idea was born*
An app that was tailored to the user based on their answer to several common questions. I did a quick google search and didn’t see anything like this existed.
Like Jack Dorsey (founder of Twitter) says, “Commit your ideas to paper before you worry about committing them to code. Get your idea out of your head so you can see it from a different perspective. And just as importantly, share it with others.”
I quickly drew out some sketches….
But…I did have one problem. I had no idea how to code. How to build an app.
So, I had a team in India code the entire project and follow my vision. Everything I learned through my experience & research was now going to be made available to anyone on earth, right at their fingertips. There’s something special about that.
Since then there have been a few variations, but the core of the app is still the same. Tailor the advice to the user and their experience. Every breakup is different, but when trying to get your ex back, there isn’t as many variations as you may think.
Today, if you Google: “Get your ex back app”, you will see my app as the number one item on the first page.
