When people first fall in love, all they want to do is be together. Sometimes it takes their friends a while to get used to not hanging out all the time. It can be especially hard for a group of friends to adjust when two people from the group start dating each other.

Devan and Jason just started dating, but Mason doesn’t seem to understand they might want to spend time alone together. Watch as he and his new friends Dale and Ella invade Jason and Devan’s privacy. It’s a little annoying, but in the end, just a silly little problem. Devan and Jason are just happy that they are finally healthy and finally together.

Discussion

Mason brings in his new friends and they take Devan and Jason’s pizza! Jason tries to get them to scram, but they don’t get it for a while. Plus, did you notice Ella grab Jason and Devan’s arms? What was that about?

Once everyone leaves, Devan is upset. But Jason still thinks they can have a fun night. They were almost done with the pizza anyway, and they got rid of everyone pretty fast.

Then it turns out that Beren was behind the couch the whole time. What’s she doing back there? Maybe it has to do with the fact that she’s actually Beren’s evil twin.

Is it hard for you to get alone time with your special someone? Or do you take too much couple time and make your friends lonely?

It is very hard to balance the friends with the special someone.

Everyday only have 24 hours. 8 hours for sleep, 9 hours for working. 3 hours for the vehicles. only left 4 hours for personal time. Maybe you need sometime for playing game or sometime for gym. it is even not enough for the lovers to be together. Only weekend have time to spend with friends. But they may have own plan…

It will be harder and harder for the friends getting together after we entering into society.

it's hard for people first fall in love to find the balance point between their friends and their special someone, the more time you spend with your special someone, the less time you spend with your friends. People find themselves in trouble when they've been asked at the same time to hang out by their friends and their special someone.
