What do you get when you bring superstar couples Jay-Z and Beyoncé Knowles  and Kanye West and Kim Kardashian together at the BET Awards? A whole lot of love. The two couples brought a lot of attention when they took the best seats in the house right next to each other. Knowles wore a bright satin dress and Kardashian was showing off her sexy curves in a white mini dress. The two ladies seemed to get along perfectly, and all four of them looked thrilled to have this double date.

What are the benefits to a double date?

Cupid’s Advice:

Even though you should always have one-on-one time with someone to get to know them, there are a lot of benefits to bringing along another couple for a double date. Here are some reasons why a double date might sometimes be better:

1. You’re more comfortable: When you’re alone with your date and there’s a constant pressure of thinking of things to say and staring at them awkwardly, it’s easy to feel nervous. When you’re around more people, you’re likely to loosen up a little.

2. More to talk about: There’s always more to talk about when there are more people at the dinner table. When there’s another couple around, you’ll have fewer silent moments than if it was just you and your date alone.

3. Less likely to fail: Even if you have a terrible date, at least you have two other people to entertain you throughout the night. It’s much better than being stuck alone with someone you truly can’t stand.
