Try finding the perfect pair to complete your two-couple foursome. My husband and I met our soulmates at a wedding. Dressed in our finest, we sipped Champagne and engaged in a dance of pure seduction. She possessed a sarcastic wit and wore a ravishing blue dress. They were going to be our new best friends, I decided even before the cake was cut.
That same night, Matt and I took them back to our place for a nightcap. We gabbed for hours, until suddenly realizing—how did that happen? After living in Chicago for 11 months, we had apparently finally found people we could love. Over the next three years, the four-way friendship coalesced into perfect symmetry.
There were dinner dates. The guys ed a basketball league together. John and Jane were the only friends Matt wanted to see for his 28th birthday, nine days after his dad died. Another time, John took us to meet his parents. We bunked at his childhood home in Champaign after a road trip south for an Illinois-Northwestern football game.
John and Jane came to our wedding, and three years later we flew to Mexico for theirs. But like so many great love stories, this one came to an end.
When a relationship ends, the surrounding associations are collateral damage. As for me and Matt, John got sole custody. No big deal, I thought at the time. At least we still have John. Of course, Matt and I each have our own friends. The couple outing is a twofer: date night and friend time. Although Matt has articulated the vision of our perfect match, I am the one tasked with finding them. That could work—except their idea of a good dinner Next is a bit pricier than ours Tank Noodle. There was another couple with great potential, but they moved to Arlington Heights.
I was positive we could be the perfect couple to turn their foursome into a sextet, and the looks I gave Matt during their very loud conversation said as much. This is totally in my wheelhouse! And the guys are just your type. Watch the game. In the sixth inning, the four of them moved to sunnier seats, and I mourned what could have been. Nine months ago, Matt and I had a baby.
Kids, it turns out, add a whole new dimension to the couple-friend courtship. On an unseasonably warm day this spring, my tiny wingman and I hit the swings at the playground in Oz Park. Another mom, watching her toddler on the slide, clutched a coffee and wore a newborn baby on her chest.
Her Iso married friend, like Matt, was standing off to the side, surveying the scene without actually participating. She and I made eye contact and smiled. I went in for the kill. Then we ventured further: Do you live around here?
What do you do?
And, of course, the pickup line appropriate for any occasion: Come here often? We summoned the menfolk and made introductions all around. The couple were moving soon, they told us, from a small two-bedroom apartment to a house in Lincoln Park not far from ours. Their toddler called to them, and our powwow broke up. As they gathered their things, our potential new friends gave us a big wave. My heart leaped. Matt and I looked at each other. Our unspoken mission was accomplished. It was time to go home.
