Have you tried online sites for group dates?
When people look for dating tips, they often focus on dates between two people. But what about double dates or “group dates” where a number of people gather to flirt and enjoy each other’s company? If you would prefer to meet people in pairs, there are online dating sites that exist to help people go on double dates to get to know new people, as well as sites for groups of people to get together.
Some people find it nerve-wracking or awkward to meet a date one-on-one and may be more relaxed if they can have a friend there, so for these people a double-dating site is a great idea. There may be less pressure when you don’t have to concentrate on being one of two people that has to keep a conversation going.
Sites that are geared to pair duos, trios or even larger groups work the same way as online dating services that pair single daters. For group dating, you sign up along with your friends, answer questions about the interests and preferences of the people in your group and then the sites match you with or help you find a group of people that fit your criteria. And as some sites for single daters do, group dating sites may offer suggestions for where to meet. This is especially helpful for a group since some places are better for group gatherings than others.
One pitfall of setting up a group date online is that you never know who will catch your eye or who will find you interesting and you don’t want to be in competition with your friends. One-on-one dating may keep this from being an issue, but for people who are more relaxed in group settings, a group date may be worth the risk of getting into a little friendly competition.
Would you ever use online sites for group dates? Do you prefer to go on double dates, group dates, or on a date with one person?
