Today I invented the new term of couple blind dating. I haven’t experienced this thing before I moved to a foreign country. But now it’s kind of a big trend to Flo and me. The easiest explanation to couple blind dating: You meet a couple that you have never met in person before. Either, because you met them via Internet through certain similarities or because mutual friends suggested to meet them.
Today Flo and I had our 4th couple blind date. My friend told me a few months ago that she just found a guy on Google, which she went to college with. And this guy has happened to move to Los Angeles like us. So I contacted him on Facebook and today we finally found time to meet. Flo and I happily do these couple blind dates, because – at least – for us it is kind of difficult to find couples to hang out with over here. Most of the girlfriends I found so far are single. And every married person knows, that besides some amazing girlfriends you also need some couples in your life to be friends with.
Our first couple blind date happened last year, when we met our friends T and H, which Flo got in contact with through our Greencard win. And this went so well and lead to a great friendship, so that we now always appreciate the chance to meet a new couple. To make it short, the couple we met to day is awesome, we had a great brunch and hopefully will see them again. Thanks to my friend K in germany for making that happen. And hurray to our social life finally hitting the fast lane!
