You are being set up on a date. Would you rather the friends setting you up be there or you meet alone? (Not completely blind, you have seen pics of each other.)

The introduction would be a nice ice breaker, and would bring the comfortability level up.

I've only always done it that way, and much prefer it.

It's just I meet enough people on my own as is and see more of the people I want that way.

twosome - You need to see if you are compatible and can carry a conversation without anyone else. Are they are good listener, do they make eye contact, and do they have manners.

Good things to look out for I agree. However I think all those can be established whether you are alone or not. Ever been in a group conversation at a party and just *knew* about someone?

I've never been on a blind date and I'm thinking that just in case I don't like him, I'd rather have my friends there. After all, if we hit it off, we can always break free of them, right?

Since I haven't had a first date in 28 years, I think I would want my friends there.

I would rather have a foursome and hope he didn't steal my date.

As it has been 41 years since I've been on a date I would want to be a foursome.

Four. I'm a little shy off the bat, and if there is no chemistry at least there are others to chat with.

Just two of us, so there's no pressure to act like we like each other (if we don't) in front of our friends.

My parents met on a blind date. I'll have to ask them which way it was for them.

She'll probably be more comfortable with her friends there, but ideally it would be in a setting that allowed us to split up for a while if things were going well. The aquarium, market, zoo, fair, RV show, museum, etc. Meet you back here in an hour?

Please give me a reason from your perspective. Males have answered so far as being in favor of just two and Females the opposite!

Straight up, it's harder to get lucky if you have other people hanging around.

I guarantee you he is not getting lucky on the first date, alone or not. But I appreciate your honest answer lol!

I have no reason to lie. Guys might say something different but they are all thinking it.

Personally, it is easier for me to make a connection with someone one-on-one. We are both investing...and I would want to make the most of the opportunity to get to know someone.

I would probably like to be alone, I feel that's already an awkward situation and to have friends be there watching the awkwardness play out it would get worse

I couldn't tell you the last time I went in a date (14 years ago??) but I would probably want my friends all there. Just so I know I'll have a good time.
