The 8 Kinds of Couples You’ll Undoubtedly Meet in NYC
Yep, these two look familiar
It’s been said that New York attracts a certain kind of person (the best kind, if you ask us). So it’s no surprise that when those people pair off you end up with a certain kind of couple. We’d be willing to bet that more than a few of these archetypes have popped up in your Facebook feed or your weekend plans.
The Couple With the Instagram-Famous Dog
Biscuit has 200 million followers and has met Kelly Ripa. You’re not sure whether to be annoyed or jealous. (Just kidding, you’re definitely jealous.)
The Media Power Couple
One is a hotshot reporter. The other is a digital-marketing savant. They both have a blazer collection to die for and an obscene number of followers on Twitter.
The Couple Who Refuses to Let Their Baby Slow Them Down
Before little Franklin was born, these two were all about taking advantage of everything the city has to offer. They have no intention of giving that up…even if it means rocking a BabyBjörn at Gov Ball.
The Jet-Setting Couple That You’re Not Sure Even Still Lives Here
They scored a great deal on flights to Hong Kong, then headed to Spain for a conference, then took off for a ski retreat in Whistler. Meanwhile, you’re working up the courage to ask them if they need a full-time housesitter for their Tribeca loft.
The Fitness-Junkie Couple
They met at SoulCycle, ran the marathon together and regularly Snapchat their acro-yoga poses. You might find the blatant flaunting of their healthy lifestyle irritating…if you weren’t so mesmerized by their abs.
The Couple Who’s So Independent You Never See Them Together
On the one hand, you totally admire their super-modern relationship. On the other hand, you’re not even sure you’d know if they broke up…
The Homebody Couple
A rare breed in NYC, this duo would rather spend Sundays binge-watching Westworld than meeting up for brunch (even when you offer to come to their ’hood). Getting them to attend a birthday dinner is a minor miracle.
The Couple Who Broke Up But Are Still Weirdly BFFs
Maybe they realized Manhattan was too small to avoid each other, or maybe they just didn’t want to give up their amazing one bedroom apartment in the Village. Either way, they’re inseparable.
