Coupling follows the lives of Jane, Sally, Susan, Jeff, Patrick, Steve and Oliver as they play the game of relationships. They fall in love, break up, make up and regularly ritualistically embarrass themselves.

It's a comedy not just of sex and love, but of maturity, male-female gender differences, psychological oddities, and Jeff's preoccupation with breasts.
