When we moved to Atlanta, my Fiance met a lot of people through his work. Some were part of a couple, some not.

Hobbies are a good way to meet people. I’m not sure about city hobbies, but I met at least half my friends here in my smallish mountain town through mountain biking.  Good luck!

Dh gets people from work and then we hang out with them … I’m completly useless when it comes to friends. I have my  3 best friends and one of DH’s close gal friends. I’m content lol

Sometime I wish we had more couple friends. Especially now that we ordered this dining room table that can seat 8.

Most importantly though, this topics always reminds me of the King of Queens when Doug and Carrie were trying to meet couple friends and ended up awkwardly asking a coupe at the grocery if they wanted to go to a movie.

I think the main way people do it is through their regular networks – work, school, church. My SO and I had almost no couple friends when we both lived in the same place; we had friends who had partners, and sometimes both of them would hang out at the same time, but no friends we could double date with. It wasn’t until he moved to a different place for school that we found ‘couple’ friends – and in fact, it’s a guy in his program who is married, and luckily we all just happen to like each other. It was so nice to finally have one couple to go to dinner with, etc. So you may find that you meet people at your job (or that your Fiance does at his job) that end up working out.

I love the idea of couple friends, but it’s *so* much harder than making single friends, or even mutual friends you share with your partner. You’ve got 4 people involved, which I find makes it harder to find a good and natural fit.

I TOTALLY relate to this! Fiance and I are always talking about how we need more friends. It’s so hard to meet people as an adult!
