@Aquaria:  My friends and I all have SOs that can deal with our pasts, otherwise we wouldn’t really be serious about them.  My husband and I met each other online (playing WoW), so we thought it was important to be totally honest with each other.

We hang out with couples AND singles; but the couples tend to want to make me light my hair on fire a lot more than the unattached ones.

I’m thinking of 2 couples in particular:

Couple #1: fights like cats and dogs, no matter who is around or where we are. We like them a lot seperately, but when they get together there is ALWAYS a huge blowup. I recall one occassion where they got into a fight at the table 30 minutes after we arrived at a restaurant and then left. Notable moments include him calling her a c-word and her calling him a pig.

Couple #2: I know for a fact that the female portion (an old “work friend”) has cheated on this guy several times over the last 4 years. He is a gem of a guy who thinks the sun shines out of her ass, and has proposed to her twice; both times she has said no. We LOVE him, but unfortunately she is along for the ride.

We keep crossing our fingers we’ll meet a “nice couple” to hang out with :-p

@Aquaria:  Yep!  It drives me nuts when I know so many details about their relationship and how terrible of a girlfriend she is, and yet I have to sit and talk with her for hours like we’re BFF!

@Aquaria:  I really really enjoy hanging out with couple friends that started out as his friends. They are all very similar in temperment to us as a couple. 

The problem is, I am definitely the “crazy” one in my relationship, but that still makes me the tamer one in my friend group. When my friends go out to dinner, we’re that table that is so loud everyone around us keeps looking at us and parents move their small children away. My SO is so NOT like that. So it creates this weird situation where I like hanging out with my friends on my own, but when SO comes with me I’m constantly worried that he feels uncomfortable. 

We also are not at all like my friends & their SOs. My friends seem to enjoy conflict in their relationships. They are always joking around by putting each other down & picking fights. It works for them, but it’s nothing like my relationship (and my SO’s friends’ relationships) which is calmer and gentler. It’s weird being around couples that just live totally different than us.

@badabing88:  Yikes!! I thought the worst couple we knew was one with the female half, who said, just weeks after their engagement “He tried hard (holding up her ring) but we’re definitely going to have to upgrade this!”

Yeah… we don’t hang out with them anymore.

@Aquaria:  I think it depends on the couple.  I generally prefer hanging out with couples who, like my fiance and I, are pretty low maintenance and just enjoy having a good time.  I would say that I prefer hanging out with couples when my fiance and I are hanging out with them together versus hanging out with couples when I’m not with my fiance … But I’ve done both.

We both spend a lot of time alone with friends as well, though.  I think that’s important whether you’re part of a couple or not.
