    Pair, the social network for couples, is one of the current services to fit the trend of smaller circles or those dedicated to maybe just two people.

    As Oleg Kostour points out, it’s “the smallest social network with just you and one other person”.

    Pair recently raised a $4.2m seed round which is a pretty impressive feat. Jamie Murai notes that they raised “a little bit more than we’d expected.” And he sagely notes that this will help the company weather any storms up ahead.
