Cupid’s Advice:

Even presidents and celebrities need double dates to spice things up. Here are the benefits to having couples friends:

1. They’re in the same place: Most couples face an array of similar problems. “He never picks up his socks.” “Same here!” By double dating your problems seem less about your relationship  and therefore smaller in your mind. A couple going through the same thing will just get it, in a way your single friends may not.

2. It’s reinvigorating: Chances are if you’ve been together a while, your partner’s become somewhat predictable. Shake things up by introducing another couple to the mix. The social interaction will liven your relationship by bringing in topics you’ve never discussed and new ideas for you to share.

3. It’s fun: Frankly the biggest reason to double date is because it’s fun. Forming relationships outside of romance is an important ingredient for a happy life. By double dating you and your partner can have fun and build relationships outside your union together.
