We do most of our socializing with other couples.  Mostly dinners and such, but occasionally we geek out and WOW couple vs couple in LAN cafes.

We used to with this other couple that was also getting married until it all went to their heads with their wedding that they hired cops to guard their card/money box!!!

SO couldn’t stomach him after that.  Too ‘high class’ for our poor behind, lol.

We double date with my FI’s Best Man and his SO all the time.  It’s fun to hang out with a couple, because you don’t have to worry about PDA or anything.  Like if we go out with my single friends and give a kiss or hold hands or something they always seem to say "Get a room!"  Hello??  We’re getting married!  I think I’m entitled here!

We occasionally go on double dates, but we don’t have many friends who are in relationships at the moment.  It’s usually a bit awkward, where one side of the table talks and the other remains somewhat quiet.  Possibly when we get older we’ll find more couples to go on double dates with.  At the moment we are very content on spending time together with friends who may or may not be in a relationship.

We double date when we can (we have one couple we get together with in Chicago when Mr LL comes to visit,  and one couple we will probably get together with in California)

In college we did all the time, now we still do, but there are only a few other couples we go out with often. I think it only works when you both like the people your with. We are lucky to have a few couples we both really enjoy hanging out with.

There’s really only one couple that we double with. While most of our friends are in relationships, I either don’t have much in common with his friend’s girlfriends, or he doesn’t have much in common with my friend’s boyfriends.

Most of my old college friends have moved away from the city and my husband and I are making new friends who all seem to be married couples! Really that is not too common in our grander social circle, since most people are still young and single. I wonder what psychic energy is drawing us together. We don’t really double date them but when we hang out it’s almost all couples.

I always want to double date, but none of our friends (all guys) have girlfriends. Its a major dissapointment. We used to with my roommate and her boyfriend (now FI) on occasion, but they are more obsessive with eachother and anti social.

We double date a lot! Fiance is an identical twin (like MrBee!) so we go out with Future Brother-In-Law and his fiancee a lot. It’s fun to have a double date built in.

All our friends are either married, engaged or dating someone as well so we have a lot of double dates occur when we see our friends.

We love to double date! Sometimes we go with my fiance’s friends and their SOs, or my friends and their SOs. Sometimes we even mix them together. They get to meet new couples, and we get to hang out with friends. It’s a great system!

We hang out mostly with my best friend who is single. We have a couple couple friends, but their still into going to the bar and were not, we like to stay home most of the time or just go out to dinner. We actually were just introduced to another couple, so we’ll see how that goes!

We’re definitely not double date type people. If we do anything, it’s with a group of friends. Some of them happen to be couples, but for some reason the idea of double dates seems weird to me (not for others, but for our dynamics). I think it might be because we’re casual people?
