It can get really old when it’s just you and your partner only hanging out with each other. As much as you love them, it’s worth creating friendships outside of your relationship — and you can still do it together as a couple. In fact according to Very Well Mind, it can be a rewarding fun experience having couple friends. Whether you just moved to a new city or you’re both naturally shy and introverted, here are some ways you can make new friends as a couple.

Through mutual friends or co-workers. If you’re already friends with one couple, that’s a good start. They probably have their own friends.

Attend social events and gatherings. This includes weddings, parties, and other social functions.

Join social media groups or local forums. This is great if you’re new to the area. There may even be a local group specifically for people looking to make new friends.

Try apps like Bumble BFF. State in your profile that you and your boo are looking for couples who are down for double dates.

Join clubs. Be it book clubs or cooking classes!

Get involved in your community. Volunteer for a cause you both care about.

Get to know your neighbors. Your new BFFs could be living right beside you!
