Double Dating Makes Couple Happy!
‘Double Dating,’ as the name suggests, is a way of spending time with your partner with one or more couples around you for the company. Recent research revealed that double dating is an effective way of rejuvenating a couple’s relationship, particularly for those who already met numerous times on a single date.
The researchers observed that friendly discussion of personal details of your life with another couple helps reignite the passion for each other, the intensity of which goes on to diminish over time. Double dating is not that important in the early stages of a relationship.
In a relationship, you always want to know your partner and have meaningful interactions on a one-to-one basis. Once you have spent enough time with your partner and known them inside out, listened to their life stories numerous times, and your relationship status has progressed to an advanced stage, double dating will immensely help you rediscover each other in a new light. This article will try to shed some light on how double dating can strengthen a relationship.
1. Reinventing Each Other’s Strength
Your partner may be a fabulous storyteller, but after a point in time, you may lose interest in listening to those oft-repeated tales. However, when told in the presence of another couple, the same stories may invite lavish appreciation from them. Seeing other people admiring your partner profusely for those old stories helps you realize and rediscover your partner’s unique ability in this respect.
The same analogy is applicable in the case of other talents as well. As human beings, each one of us possesses some attractive qualities and strengths. At times, due to excessive exposure, we fail to recognize such qualities of our partner. Double dating becomes an effective tool in reinventing each other’s qualities and strengths in such scenarios.
2. Double Dating Staves Off Boredom
A time comes when the monotony of your routine life takes its toll on your relationship also. You tend to feel bored in each other’s company. The spark which was so omnipresent in your meetings at times goes missing.
When you start getting too comfortable with your partner, your relationship starts losing its edge. A sense of weariness creeps into your relationship, making you resentful and vulnerable to internal conflicts. Such monotony can be broken by inviting another couple to date together. Adding two more dates into the mix will definitely shake up your relationship and help keep the all-pervasive complacency at bay.
3. Relationships Flourish And Thrive In A Broader Social Network
As the raw tenderness of a new relationship is replaced by a syndrome of apathetic attitude towards each other over time, the passion in the relationship begins to wane.
There comes a time when the couple must engage and involve themselves in a broader network of social relationships. It is observed in recent researches that such involvement of couples in a broader social network helps their relationship to prosper and develop.
Double-dating with a couple with whom you have been friends for a long time allows you and your partner to rediscover not just your relationship but your friendship as well. If you go out with a couple, you don’t know very well. Such meetings can become the perfect occasion for making new friends.
4. Self Disclosure Interactions With Other Couples Boosts Passionate Love
There have been researches that have confirmed that when couples interact with each other, disclosing their details and sharing their novel, arousing experiences between them, there always seems to be an increased feeling of intense love among the participating couples.
It has also been seen that the intensity of the feeling increases with the response of the participating couples to these disclosures. Such interactions are fun and introspective at the same time. By listening to the experiences of the couple sitting across the table and taking a look at the equation they share, you and your partner can effectively benchmark your relationship. Double dates can give you a clearer view of your relationship and help you understand where you stand together as a couple.
5. Chemistry Changes During Double Dates
We have seen that whether you are just seeing each other, engaged or are already married, over time, the all-important passion in your relationship plummets even in a seemingly healthy relationship.
By protecting the relationship from such downfall is a cause of concern. Going on double dates has the potential to avoid such disastrous consequences of a healthy relationship.
New chemistry between the couples develops during and after going on a double date. It is this newfound chemistry that proves to be the sure-shot recipe for reviving and improving a relationship.
6. Double Dating Brings Out The Best in you
When you have been in a relationship for a long time, occasional arguments and bickering become commonplace. Over a period, you may start ill-treating your partner. You may develop a feeling of malice towards them due to such small fights.
You may continue to bicker and fight even when you are out on a date alone. However, the addition of another couple to the setting encourages the two of you to be on your best behavior. Seeing a loving couple sitting right next to you will encourage you to reignite the romance in your relationship as well. When love is in the air, you will feel the warmth as well.
Double dating serves the dual purpose of spending quality time with your partner. It also fulfills your desire to spend time with your friends, all in the same package. Double dates are an integral and essential part of today’s civilized world. Are fun, and if you strike the right chord with the other couple, it will also help you in finding long-term emotional support in them.
