Do you watch How I Met Your Mother? Well I do and I LOVE it. Anyways Marshall and Lily are always on the lookout for new couple friends. Needless to say they are a little over zealous and take it way over board every time, and its hilarious!
We are always in the market looking for some new couple friends. But finding couple friends is a lot like dating, but for couples obviously. You have to find a pair that you are both compatible with. Your kids need to get along, and be somewhat close to the same age. Sometimes things workout and you "fit" and sometimes you just gotta go your seperate ways and figure out how to dump them!
Over the past few years we have lost a lot of couple friends due to stupid stuff involving unions. Seriously SO stupid. I never knew 30 something year old guys would act like 15 year old high school girls until we were involved in a union strike. But that's a long story and way off subject here!
We have lost a few over differences, and then once we had Jakah it seems like we lost a few more. Some couples don't have kids yet, and some couples have older kids so its hard for us to all get together, and others have different parenting styles.
Either way we are looking to "date" new couple friends. We hung out with a new couple on New Year's Eve. I shouldn't say new couple, I knew them both from school and we have hung out a few times this summer. But Casey had yet to meet them. They live down the street and its nice being so close. (We have another couple friend who lives behind us, Hi Emily! You should check out her cute blog Peck Life!)
From our perspective we all just seemed to "click". The kids all got along and played well, The adults all had stuff to chat about. Casey was happy it wasn't someone from work so he didn't have to shop talk. It was just fun to hang out with all of them.
Hopefully they feel the same way :)
Do you have couple friends? How did you meet or find them? Do you feel it was like dating?
