New Internet Startup Promises To Find Friends For Alienated Couples

  • 0

Have you ignored your friends since getting into an all-consuming relationship? To avoid future guilt trips, do you wish you could only socialize with other couples? You could go on double dates and talk about your relationships together. Going on a gondola ride or renting two-seater bikes by the beach would be a swell idea! If only there was a website that helped you do this. It would be like Facebook but for couples only!

Oh wait, it actually does exist. Happy day! A new internet startup called Friend Dept. promises to be a place where couples can make long-lasting friendships with other couples (that is until one of the couples break up and are released back into the wild. Then they are out of the club and will never be spoken to again.) The website suggests making “friends with other couples for hiking, going to concerts, watching movies, or just making dinner.” And for the very real possibility of group sex.

All kidding aside, this website seems like a terrifying joke. If I were in a relationship right now, I would make my boyfriend sign up immediately with me.  We then would pick the creepiest goth couple on the site and let the games begin! TC mark

Poetry that will change you

This is for the women who are first to get naked, howl at the moon and jump into the sea. This is for the women who seek relentless joy; the ones who know how to laugh with their whole souls. The women who speak to strangers because they have no fear in their hearts. This is for the women who drink coffee at midnight and wine in the morning, and dare you to question it. This is for the women who throw down what they love, and don’t waste time following society’s pressures to exist behind a white picket fence. The women who create wildly, unbalanced, ferociously and in a blur at times. This — is for you.

    This is one of those brilliant startups that began as “Hey, it's *existing startup* for *potentially untapped market*” pitches.

    Unfortunately, they didn't realized that wife swapping has been tapped by everyone from the Nintendo Wii to your parents in the 70s.

      Nintendo Wii? How so? Curious to this?

        “We Dare” for the Nintendo Wii was banned out of the US, it's in Europe of course. Basically a sexy 'dare' game designed for couples stripping, licking, etc.

    I'm totally signing my husband and I up. I hope there are other couples that are into satanic rituals and mutual masturbation as much as we are. But we're not swingers, that's just unnatural.

    My parents need this.
