do they not see the adventure in the bar scene, and internet dating, and the set-up?
oh, actually they do see the adventure in the set-up...
they, in their coupled delusions, seem to think that just because their friend xy is not-coupled and their other friend xx is not-coupled, the two must have something profound in common and they must set them up... even if it's a non-date.
news flash to the happily coupled... some of us enjoy not being half of something for some period of time.
def. non-date : when coupled friends set not-coupled friends up, however the not-coupled friends have no idea what's going on.
def. some period of time : unique to each not-coupled individual, and ends abruptly whenever happily coupled people actually have a gorgeous, intelligent, interesting friend that would be fun to hang out with.this clarification for my dear, happily-coupled friends, that although I know to be well-meaning, seem to think I don't know what I'm talking about when I say either:
a) I'm happy being not-coupled.
read: not interested in their only other not-coupled friend (so very not-coupled for a reason)
b) I think your not-coupled friend is interesting.
read: I think he's interesting/hot/intelligent, and wouldn't mind hanging out again.
I'm glad you're happily coupled, but keep your coupledom to yourself until I tell you oh-so-subtly otherwise!
