Signs You’ve Found Your Perfect Couple Friends Match
Trying to find a couple that you and your partner both agree you love to see is like finding a unicorn; it almost never happens. Uh, I mean, it never happens because unicorns aren’t real. If you find this couple, do not mess it up. Having that perfect couple friends match is actually an important part of the glue that keeps a relationship together. Think about it; if you can’t find a couple you both love to hang out with, then you’ll ultimately end up spending less time together. If you want to see a girlfriend, that means you have to see her solo because your boo doesn’t like her boo. And if your guy wants to see his friends, he is going without you because you don’t like their significant others. Here are signs you’ve found your perfect couples friends match and that you should never let them go.
It’s the only couple you can agree on hanging with
When you bring up other couples, there is a lot of, “Um…yeah…I supposed we could see them” and “Okay, maybe for an hour or two…” But when you bring up this couple, it’s an instant unanimous “Yes! Call them.”
The men have started their bizarre text thread
Your man and the other man have started the bizarre text thread that all men who develop a bromance eventually have. You know the one—the one you don’t want to read because it’s at best strange and at worst gross.
You want to go in on a timeshare together
Going in on a timeshare together sounds like the best idea EVER. It would be like playing house together, in a tropical location, and getting to be together 24/7 away from all the other annoying couples.
You want to go on a cruise together
You want to hit the buffet together, sun bathe together, take those cheesy cruise ship photos together and swim with the turtles together. You want neighboring cabins so you can hang out first thing in the morning.
You and the other woman send each other outfit photos
You and the other woman have started running errands together and shopping together. When you cannot shop together, you text each other photos of the outfits you’re trying on for their approval.
The other man wants to help you around the house
Rather than “suddenly have a call he has to take” when you bring up a broken sink, the other man listens intently, suggests solutions and even offers to come over and fix it for you!
And your partner wants to help them around the house
Your partner wants to be of help to the other couple. He doesn’t shy away when they mention that they need help moving a couch but rather sees it as a chance to hang out with them.
Your other friends wonder where you’ve been
Remember how, when you first started dating your partner, you disappeared into a love shack and your friends wondered where you went? Well, you emerged, but then you and your partner disappeared into another shack with this other couple, and all your friends are once again wondering where you are.
You vacation at the same speed
You’re all on board about the fact that vacations are about sleeping in, laying by the pool, day drinking, taking naps and eating good food. There isn’t some odd man out who is trying to get everyone to go on a museum tour at 7 am.
And on the same budget
If you have the same vacation budget, it can feel like a match made in heaven. You’re interested in the same activities, restaurants, and hotels because they’re within your shared price range.
Nobody watches the clock when you hang out
You never know what time it is when you hang out, and nobody is giving their partner the side eye wondering, “Can we leave soon because my favorite show is on soon.”
The babysitter worries when you go out with them
Your babysitter knows it will be a long night when you go out with this couple. She sends a lot of texts “checking in” and is considering charging you over time.
You guys usually get too drunk together
Just like you did when you were first falling in love with your partner, now you and your partner are getting too drunk when you hang out with this other couple.
You invite them over to use the new grill
The second you get a new grill, you want to invite this couple over to experience it. Or any cooking contraption, really.
And the new hot tub
You text them anytime you heat up the hot tub with a photo of the hot tub, the beer emoji, and a question mark. You all know what that means.
