    Thoughts on Double Dating?

    Do you think going on double dates is a good idea?

    Re: Thoughts on Double Dating?

    Hey Eddie!

    Personally, I hate double dating. Every time my boyfriend and I go on a double date, I always embarrass him.

    I don't do it intentionally! It is like every time I get with another couple I need to prove how good of a girlfriend I am and it always backfires. I probably wouldn't feel like this if we went on double dates with my friends instead of his!

    Good Tuesday Eddie,

    I'd have to say I've yet gone a date yet because I've always tried to focus on school and football and not dating, until now my senior year. I think for me when trying to get to know a person it's better to be one on one without interruptions from your friends, but on the other hand if you're one who needs a bit of an ice breaker sometimes having another couple with you brings good entertainment, but it depends if this is a first date or many dates later.

    Have a good day!

    Hi Eddie,

    I go on a lot of double dates with my boyfriend. I enjoy them very much, but perhaps that is because we always go with a couple who are close friends of ours. My boyfriend and the guy in the other couple have been best friends since childhood, and so I've known him and his girlfriend for the entire time I've known my boyfriend. We all get along really well, and while my boyfriend and I enjoy time alone together it can make certain events much more fun to have them invited along.

    I definitely agree with Thankful that when you're still getting to know someone a double date might make it tough to really get to know that person. I'd probably be pretty shy and uncomfortable in such a situation too. I also wouldn't like a double date on an important night. For example my ex invited his friends along one year for our valentine's date...that was not something I appreciated. Overall though I like double dates!

    Have a good rest of your day!

    I think double dates can be really awkward, especially if the other couple decides to have an argument, or if they are being too touchy feeling and you and your partner are the awkward third wheels. Although some double dates can be fun! It just depends on the couples and how everyone gets along. The venue is also important, I think an activity like hiking or swimming would be more fun than sitting quietly together in a dark theatre.

    Re: Thoughts on Double Dating?

    I think double dates can be great if you've been dating for a while. It's way too awkward for me to go on a double date with a stranger. I'd be nervous trying to impress the other couple and the date! I wouldn't be able to show him my true colors and personality! :)

    Re: Thoughts on Double Dating?

    Love them so far. I think because my boyfriend and I were part of a large group of friends that hang out all the time well before some of us paired up. So it's not much different than the way it was before.

    I get why sometimes they can be awkward, though, especially if you don't know each other well.

    Hi Eddie,

    I like double dates because it gives me a chance to spend time with my husband but also socialize with other people without any time of third wheel scenario happening. Some single people don't enjoy spending time with married couples, so it's nice to get together with another couple and enjoy a night out.

    Thanks!

    Hi, I haven't went on a double date, but I think it would be a great way for friends to hang out together or a blind date kind of thing where you can go out with friends while getting to know a new date. It would be a good way to break uncomfortable silences if you are the embarrassed type like I am.

    Never done it, but I'd be open to it, as long as one of the people was a mutual friend. It can make the situation a little less awkward and more just like a "hangout". But if you're really trying to get to know someone, it may work against you, as your friend could interfere with that time.
