Q: How do we meet new like-minded couples?

Angela says…
Take a look at your common interests and find social events where people are doing those things you enjoy. Join a co-ed soccer or dodge ball league. Take a cooking class. Love music? Get out to concerts and chat up people near you after the show. Derek and I have also met great couples while traveling. It's amazing how easy it is to strike up friendships once you find out you're both from the same city. Try using a simple "You sound like Canadians. Where are you from?" Love board games? Cafés and pubs are popping up across the country where folks gather to play Scrabble or Settlers of Catan.

Derek says…
Angela's approach requires investing a lot of time and energy, both of which are in short supply. If you're looking for a quick way to boost your inner circle, friends of friends are your best bets. Host a cocktail party, where you invite a few couples and ask each to bring along an entertaining and engaging couple you've never met but with whom you'd get along. You're bound to find at least one gem in the bunch.
