Finding friends as an adult is tough but finding friends when you’re married is even tougher. This is why many married couples have few or no couple friends with whom they can do fun couple activities.

However, if you’ve been trying to make couple friends for a while now and it’s not working, you might want to reevaluate how you are around other couples.

Too competitive?

For the most part, people don’t want friends who are overly competitive. If the only thing you can think about when you hear the words “game night” is winning, you may be a little too competitive. Fun activities for couples should be about having fun not winning or losing.

Too affectionate?

Being in love is wonderful but it’s important to have boundaries when it comes to public displays of affection. When you’re hanging out with another couple, focus on the conversation and avoid making the other couple feel uncomfortable.

Too much fighting?

Witnessing a couple fight is very awkward. No one knows how to react to that and most people would rather not witness it or worse still, get dragged into it.

Similarly, no one wants to hang out with a couple that goes out of their way to embarrass each other. All that does is embarrass everyone in the room.

Too many inside jokes?

When you’re hanging out with other people as a couple, you should try to include everyone in the conversation as much as possible. Inside jokes are a little alienating so it’s better to avoid them.

How To Be More Likable As A Couple

No Pressure

It’s very natural to want to spend as much time as possible with new friends. The trouble with this is that it can make the other couple feel pressured and turned off.

If you want to keep your new couple friends interested, be chill and avoid pressuring them to spend time with you. It’s okay to send a text here and there to remind them that you exist as long as you’re not asking them to hang out with you every weekend.

Ask them to do something that you were already planning to do

At the beginning of your friendship, don’t go out of your way to plan couple activities for you and them to do together. Instead, ask them to come along to something that you were already going to do. This way, you don’t have to cancel your plans if they can’t come. It’s also takes the pressure out of couple activities
