Group dates. These are actually a thing that has been around for quite some time. However, not everyone is used to going on group dates, which leads to a lot of questions. The biggest one is whether or not you should go on one in the first place. Well, the answer is that it depends on your answer to these questions.
Are You Comfortable Around Other People?
The first thing that you need to ask yourself if you’re going to go on a group date is, of course, are you even comfortable around other people? In all likelihood, there are going to be some strangers mixed in with others if it’s a big crowd, and you’ll need to interact with them. If not, group dates might not be your thing.
The next thing that you need to ask is if you and the person you are dating have been going out for long. Of course, this is subjective since length of time depends on perspective. However, if you have only been going out for less than a week, group dates can definitely become a problem.
For one thing, you don’t know what you are getting yourself into in terms of the type of people you are going to meet. For another, you might not know each other well enough to actually get along during the date.
Do You Have No Problems With Mixed Activities?
Group dates don’t always involve mixed activities that you might have no experience in, but they can. If you’re not comfortable with new experiences that might come as part of the package of the group date, it might become an unpleasant experience for you. That’s just not worth it.
Do You Even Want To Go On A Group Date?
Finally, and perhaps this is the first thing you should have asked yourself, do you even want to go on a group date? You should always remember that dating is a two-way relationship. Your feelings matter as well, and you don’t always have to agree with what the other person wants to do just because you are dating.
