A lot of things change as you get older. You can’t eat pasta for every meal without getting fat. Your husband doesn’t flinch when you wrapped your unshaved legs around him. And your double dates aren’t quite what they used to be.
Double dating has evolved significantly since becoming married (at least for Melissa), and today we’re here to talk about who we like to hangout with as a group, why our husbands suck at double dating, and some double date ideas!
And we know double dating isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, and I can definitely see why. Some spouses aren’t blessed (or cursed) with the ability to make small-talk and feign interest. Sometimes your spouse shows every single emotion on their face, making it harder to lie to your friends that “oh he’s just tired.” And, naturally, there are those on the exact opposite side of the spectrum; people who think that it’s necessary to go on double dates to have a healthy marriage.
Although we find ourselves more-so on the “avoid at all costs” spectrum of double dating, we do make exceptions when it comes to other couples that just get us… both of us. Yeah, I’m looking at you Shelbie and Brian.
So, with that being said, we have some advice and tips on what your next double date idea should be. We don’t think that simply having dinner with another couple cuts it anymore. It’s time to throw yourselves into an activity– you don’t have to force conversation as much or awkwardly act like you haven’t already stalked her Instagram and know the names of all of her siblings.
