Love Intently
Founder + CEO
Austin, Texas
I'm Sophie Kwok, the Founder of Love Intently. I am passionate about empowering people build thriving relationships. In a world of big engagements and comparison, Love Intently stands to remind us love doesn't need to be a production. The everyday little mundane things matter most. Whether it's a parent-child relationship or a romantic one, start small.

Love Intently didn’t start with a romantic partner, but with my parents. I had a rocky relationship with my parents growing up, and in learning to connect with them I realized that our disagreements didn’t stem from a lack of love but a lack of understanding. I stumbled upon frameworks and relationship science and decided to apply the framework to my life. By better understanding how people give and receive love differently, it radically strengthened my relationship with my parents. Although, there was a lot of trial-and-error, I came to see any relationship could benefit from intentional acts of love. The journey with my parents inspired me to help others strengthen their relationships too – paving the way for Love Intently.

There are tons of apps to help us start relationships but very few that empower us to stay in them. Our mission is to empower one million people to have thriving relationships by 2020.
