May I ask what your motivation is for seeking a couple? I only ask because I've seen that blown up a lot, and it's practically a policy of mine to specifically avoid dating couples.

I had a friend recently have her heart broken when she and her partner started seeing this other couple. Her partner and the wife really hit it off, and my friend thought she was hitting it off with the husband. Then when her partner and the wife went to run an errand, he made a move on her and they made out in the car. Meanwhile, the husband was basically breaking up with my friend. Obviously that relationship lacked communication (it eventually came out that the husband was not polyamorous, just trying to go along with it because his wife was poly).

Just seems like dating a couple has a lot more room for complications.
As I am sure any cat owner will be able to tell you,
someone else putting you in a box is entirely different
from getting into a box yourself.
