How to create your MiniMe Avatar

LoveByte’s latest app, MiniMe Avatar Maker allows you to create a cartoon version of yourself by customising the various facial parts. Go wild and express yourself in different styles to make them dramatic.

For people who value privacy and feel uncomfortable uploading their real photo as profile pictures. As such, using cartoon images would be perfect in hiding their identity on social networks yet still have an avatar that looks like them. It’s also great for people who do not draw but would love an cartoon avatar of themselves.

Where do I get MiniMe Avatar Maker?

MiniMe is one of the best free avatars on Google Play for Android and iOS Apple Store.

Is it a free avatar maker?

Yes, downloading the app does not cost anything.

11 Signs Your Partner Is Your BFF

Let’s face it – adult relationships are tough and we find our social circles shrinking the older we get. It’s tiring to have to get to know and understand another human being. It may seem easier to find a romantic partner than it is to find a BFF… but imagine how awesome it is if your partner is also your BFF?!

It is very cliche when people say “I’m marrying my best friend” but here are reasons why it actually makes sense to pick a partner who is your best friend.

1. You can be your true self

You’ve seen each other dress sloppily, do dorky, grossest things yet still accept each other for who you are and find each other attractive. It doesn’t really matter. You don’t have to worry about being judged.

2. You share the same interests

There’s something that you guys can keep talking about and do together. That gives you more reasons to hang out and spend time having fun and at the same time enjoy each others’ company.

3. You know what each other likes

Overtime you can see pattern in their routine. They tend to order the same dish, go to the same restaurant, and pick the same designs. Getting each other gifts becomes easy – it doesn’t always have to be expensive jewelry because you know exactly the things that can get their eyes to sparkle.

4. You complete each others’ sentences

Or sometimes, you say the same thing at the same time then give each other a Hi-5.
You’re both on the same frequency. Could it be telepathy?

5. You can tell each other EVERYTHING

There’s basically no judgement. They are the first to know what happens in your everyday life. The highs and lows. Gossip and complain about an unpleasant event, rave about your latest obsession. The usual mundane happenings, to even the boring and disgusting bits. No topic under the sun that is that forbidden… telling each other that you’re checking out other hotties on the street is pretty normal because they can enjoy it too.

6. You’re both comfortable doing nothing together

It’s not mandatory to always go outside on an adventure. You can spend a lot of time hanging out, sleeping in doing nothing together and still feel you had fun! Lazing in at home watching Netflix in bed qualifies as having a good time together.

7. You laugh a lot together

You share the same sense of humour. You laugh at the same ridiculous jokes even when the rest of the world doesn’t laugh with you. You find each other hilarious and have a good time cracking jokes to make each other laugh.

8. You got each others’ back

They are there to listen to the details and comfort you when you need a shoulder to cry on. You can trust them to take care and support you, even when sometimes you feel you’re unable to do so yourself. You can count on them to give you advice knowing that they have your best interests at heart.

9. You hardly get angry at each other

When you know each others’ quirks and bad habits, it’s easier to understand why some things happen and you will soon realise it’s part of who they are and don’t get mad as often anymore.

10. You make up very quickly

If you both do fight, you’ll fight over trivial stuff like whether to order fast food for the fifth time this week and denying who ate the last cookie in the jar. When it comes to real arguments, you already know how to have a proper talk to thrash things out.

11. You like each other a lot

Because you love them. And you like them too.

How Falling In Love Can Change You

When you find out that the person you like actually likes you back, falling in love is one of the best feelings in the world. When love blossoms, your body produces a flood of feel-good chemicals that make you feel like you are the top of the world.

You see everything positively

It’s a powerful emotion to feel. When you fall in love, everything looks like rainbows and roses. The world becomes a lovely place again and there’s always a reason to smile! That’s the power of love, especially when you didn’t expect that you were able to find love again. Is there anything that is impossible? It’s all about the perspective.

You want to become a better person

When you are in love, your partner seems like the most perfect person in the world and it’s likely that they also see you in the same light. Flaws? What flaws?!

To live up to each other’s standards, you will want to present the best version of yourself and become better for the other person by improving yourself.

You put in 150% more effort in things you do

Suddenly, you have many plans and goals on your To-Do List to spend as much time as possible. You make sacrifices like stay up late to research on the new, coolest places to hang out. While you also sometimes daydream about your future together, you’re already making mental drafts of your desires and shared goals to share with your partner when the time is right. This becomes motivation to give your best and work hard for what’s ahead.

You become more giving and thoughtful

Everything you see reminds you of your love. You want to shower them with them with as much love and attention possible because in your heart, they are most special. “Ohh she likes this chocolate” and you would think of buying it for her. You think about your own needs less and instead consider more about treating your partner right.

You are a happier person

Of course, you don’t need someone to complete you. But the thought of the special someone automatically brings a smile to your face when you recall a sweet moment from last week’s walk on the beach. Sometimes people catch you laughing silly to yourself at the phone and tease you for it.

Featured Couple: Shaira and JB

We interviewed Shaira, the winner of our recent Facebook contest where they won themselves travel vouchers for their next couple holiday! In this interview, we ask them how they met and what keeps their relationship loving.

How long have the two of you been together?
It has been 1,487 lovely days, thanks to the Days Together feature on LoveByte app.

How did you both meet?
I already had a big crush on him the first time I saw him in on public transport. I was first introduced to him at my groupmates house to work on a project for accounting class. I was shocked that I saw him there at my classmate’s house. I never thought that he would talk to me, but he added me on Facebook and we exchanged numbers and started getting to know each other more.

Chatting played a big part in to our relationship because that’s how we started, and I’m very thankful that I found the LoveByte app where I can chat with him privately and share our precious memories there :)

Screenshot_2015-10-13-23-53-35-1How do you use LoveByte?
I mostly use LoveByte in uploading our pictures together and scheduling our dates. We love scrolling through our memories in the form of a storyline as we look back on the things we’ve experienced together.

What is your favourite activity (date) to do together?
Our favourite activities together are watching movies and eating.

He’s studying to become a nutritionist and that’s why he makes sure that I get the nutrition I need. I love being pampered by his cooking because it’s a way of him showing he cares!

What is one challenge you have faced as a couple and how was it resolved?
When my grandparents were not supportive about our relationship. My grandparents wanted me to break up with him but I didn’t follow them because I didn’t see anything wrong with him. As corny as it sounds, we fought for our love by reminding ourselves about how long we stayed in our relationship and how happy we are when we are with each other.

lovebyte_couple2How does LoveByte help you in your relationship?
It helped us by reminding us how long and strong our relationship is and by looking back at our precious moments like our pictures together, the memos, and the happy dates. :)

What is the best advice you could give couples for a happy and harmonious relationship?
Never forget to look back at your happy memories, and communication is important. That’s why LoveByte is helpful to couples, because it serves as a tool of communication.

How did you know he was “the one”?
I didn’t knew it, I felt it. There are a lot of people in the world, but only a few can give you the happiness that you’re looking for, and I found that happiness with him.


Stay loving,

10 Sweetest Love Dedications And What We Can Learn From It

We recently asked LoveByte couples on Facebook a simple question: How long has it been since you two have been together?

Using our Days Together feature on LoveByte, so many cute couples posted loving messages which made us go all “awwww so sweet” while scrolling the comments the entire time! It’s really heartwarming to see how LoveByte has played a part in many couples’ relationships as they build their memories together. Here are some of our favourite picks:

Being there through thick and thin

Life is not always upbeat and happy. Despite many events and challenges that they may face, they know they have each other by their side to go through them together and they always got each others’ back. Having faith in difficult times keeps them positive that all storms will pass :)

best_couple_app

couple_app Fight but kiss and make up

There will be times when couples just disagree with each other when they don’t see eye to eye. At the end of the day, we may fight, we get jealous, we worry, we get mad because we care about each other too much. And we know we don’t ever wanna lose each other because we know where we belong <3

couple_appsDifferences complement each other

A great relationship is not when a perfect couple come together but when an imperfect couple learns to enjoy their differences. Learning to respect and understanding each other is one of the key foundations of a lasting relationship.

love_through_thick_thin

Absence makes the heart fonder

Successful relationships take work. Couples in a long distance relationship put in even much more effort to keep the relationship going and alive. In fact, it made their bonds even stronger.

couple_ldr

lovebyte_couple love_days_counter    Committed to grow together

The best relationship is when two people pursue their own dreams and also share same goals to grow together as a couple. We don’t necessarily have to be everything in their lives… just their favourite part. <3
