    18 Things All Couples Who Want Couple Best Friends Understand

    You guys are going to want to get in on this Gouda.

    1. In the early stages of a relationship, your significant other is the ONLY person you want to hang out with.

    2. You can keep each other entertained for hours.

    3. And for a while you don't MIND that you hardly ever leave the house, or even the bed.

    4. But eventually, you realize it's probably not a SUPER great idea to spend all your time with only each other.

    5. So you start the age-old couple's rite of passage: trying to find another couple who can be your best friends.

    6. You find a couple you think you might get along with, and you essentially ask them out.

    7. In the lead-up to the big day, you're really excited! New friends!!

    8. Plus, some things are just MADE for four people — like all the best tables at restaurants, for example.

    9. And then you start getting nervous, and you think about canceling about 800 times.

    10. If you're hosting the double date, it's safe to say you're going to try WAY too hard.

    11. And the whole time you're together, you won't be able to stop making awkward comments to gauge how well it's going.

    12. You also feel this weird pressure to show the other couple what a good couple you are.

    13. Sometimes you'll find out YOU like the other couple you're hanging out with, but your partner doesn't.

    14. Sometimes it's clear that the whole group just does. Not. Work.

    15. And sometimes you have a great time, and try to make a second double date, and the other couple TOTALLY GHOSTS YOU!

    16. It's basically like going through a break-up.

    17. But the good news is, at the end of the night, you'll be able to rehash the night with each other.

    18. And you know you'll keep searching, because you KNOW your couple best friends are out there.
