So why would my putative friends not be busy too? Well, going by next door, there are people who spend their home time sitting in the kitchen doing crostic crosswords and drinking coffee and chatting with their SOs, so having another person hanging about the kitchen doesn't change things much. Maybe that's another facet of coupledom.
