How Gilly Works

Invite your partner & start on your free foundation journey

The Foundation journey is free for anyone who wants experiment with new ways to break the usual ol’ routine and creating new habits to connect as a couple.

Remember, cultivating intimacy is a team sport — so your two-week adventure can only begin once your partner accepts your Gilly invite!

Receive your daily treat via SMS or WhatsApp

Your treat of the day will arrive via text. Some days will contain the same treat for both of you. On other days, you may have different ones.

Oh, the suspense!

Your Gilly time

Quality time looks different for every couple! Each treat is simply an invitation to be an active participant in your relationship — however that looks like.

No stress if you can’t do this daily — this isn’t a “program” where you must do them all.

Free call with a Gilly Guide for more insights on your intimacy profile

As part of your free foundation Gilly journey, you can complete a unique, research based intimacy questionnaire to learn more about what influences intimacy in your relationship.

Schedule a free call with a Gilly Guide to understand your profile in more detail.

Sexplore & have fun

At the end of your Foundation Journey, choose your next adventure!

Share Gilly with your Partner

"All conversations are kid based, house based, in-law based… Gilly is something just for us."

— R, Mother of two, USA

"It’s working great. We’re talking more, having sex more and hanging out more."

 — J, Father of two, Canada

"It’s made us prioritise ourselves a little more and communicate. D and [I] didn’t believe we were bad at communicating but this has made us go that little deeper which I think we need."

— S, Mother of one, UK


1. How long is a Gilly Journey?

A Gilly journey, like the free Foundation journey available for couples to try, is usually around 14 days.

2. 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.

3. 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!

4. 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.

5. 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.

6. What happens after our free Gilly journey?

Hopefully, you’ll have had a call with your Gilly Guide and gained helpful insights into what helps your relationship and intimacy tick. If you and your partner enjoyed your Gilly experience, you can continue onto other Gilly journeys by upgrading to a monthly subscription

7. Why is there a monthly fee? Why can't you just do this for free?
As a young startup, we need to balance fulfilling our mission to help families thrive during this challenging time, and being financially responsible.
There is a cost associated with providing Gilly for free (e.g., cost of the tools needed to send messages, etc.). With very limited funds, we are only able to provide Gilly for free for a limited period of time.
If you really want to keep using Gilly but are under financial stress due to COVID-19, please contact us. We have set aside a few spots for these situations on a need basis.
You can also find regular insights and support shared in our email updates.
8. 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.

9. 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.

10. 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.
