"Friends" was a huge hit in the 1990s. This story of six New York friends who live in unbelievably enormous apartments,* despite the fact that they seem to spend almost no time actually doing their various jobs (it would interfere with their coffee-and-gossiping schedule) hit the screens and soon became the watercooler show du jour. Up to 25 million people watched every week to see if Ross and Rachel would ever finally get it together, whether Chandler would learn where to put the right emphasis, how Joey would mess up his career, what neurosis Monica would try and fail to face, and how Phoebe would be gloriously weird.
Everyone had a favorite friend, and that means everyone had a favorite "Friends" couple. Similarly, those of us who are coupled up know that we laughed at the crazy hijinks on the screen because those couples were just a little bit like us. Still, some of them were more like us than others - so let's find out about your key relationship and we'll figure out which "Friends" couple most resembles the duo you're in! Perhaps no one told you life was gonna be this way, but it is, and that's just fine!
*While the going rate in the '90s for that huge purple apartment was a mere $3,500-$4,000, these days it would run you a hefty $6,000 and up. Not bad for a part-time waitress and sometimes out-of-work chef. God bless rent control!
