What are some advantages of going on a double date?

Cupid’s Advice:

Many couples associate double dating with a much younger and less serious kind of dating. Group movie dates and making out in parked cars come to mind. However, group dates can be extremely beneficial when pursuing serious relationships later in life. Here’s how:

1. It allows you to get to know your date: If you met your date through a friend, a double date could take the edge off the initial “getting to know you” period, prompting him to share more than he may have if the two of you had gone out one-on-one.

2. It allows your friends to get to know you and your date as a couple: If your friends are not used to being around you and your beau together, a double date is the easiest way to work them into your circle of friends. Let your friends see what you love about your partner.

3. It can help you get a different perspective: If you are uncertain about how you feel about your date, take him out on a double date. Your friends may be able to validate some of the issues you have or help you realize that you are just being overly-critical of your new man.
