Friend Dept

Ah, the joys of being in a relationship. You now have someone to share all of your deepest darkest secrets with, take long strolls on the beach with, and eat the same string of spaghetti together until your lips meet. (What, you don’t model your dates after Lady and the Tramp?) And before you know it, you’re spending all of your time with that special person and you inevitably forget the outside world, including your less-important friends.

Does this scenario sound familiar? If it does, don’t fret! There’s now a new website that lets you and your significant other emerge from the “relationship black hole.”

An Internet startup called Friend Dept. allows lonely couples to make long-lasting friendships with other couples. That way, both couples can do, well, couple-y things, together. The site suggests hiking, going on concerts, watching movies and making dinner as potential activities. All harmless, fun activities, indeed (though, a few not-so-innocent happenings might cross the minds of some of the site’s users).

So what if you’re single and on the prowl? You’re not invited to Friend Dept. Hop on over to — or, even better, the dating site for Ayn Rand fans. Turns out, the cyberspace world caters to just about every niche imaginable. (via Thought Catalog)
