My startup, BeCouply, helps couples have epic social lives. I realized there wasn't a lot out there for couples who don't want to fall into the trap of dinner and a movie every Friday night.
I got the idea when I met Becky Cruze, my girlfriend and co-founder. I really wanted to impress her by building something we could use, and the more we talked to other couples the more we realized it could be a real business.
BeCouply helps couples discover new date spots and ideas, capture special moments and then connect with their couple friends. Our goal is to have every couple using BeCouply to advance their relationship -- both at home on the computer and mobile on the go.
Becky and I are fortunate in that BeCouply is all about having a fun, loving relationship. Ironically enough, before this Becky was working at a law firm that did a lot of divorce cases! -As told to CNNMoney staff reporter Julianne Pepitone
