A new study claims that couples who maintain friendships with other couples are more attracted to each other and have stronger relationships.
I met Cindy through my buddy, Andre. She was his girlfriend Karen's best friend since grade school, and he had told me just a couple of hours in advance that Karen was bringing her friend along because she thought that we would hit it off. It was more like being hit by a freight train.
The ten rules of double dating. How a guy should take dating to the next level. What would guys do if they were chicks for a day. Are shy guys actually afraid of women? Does a guy really fear ruining a relationship by making it physical? What if he's unemployed and she's got a killer job? Do men really, really hate being alone?
I usually don't go out with a guy I meet online before I see what he looks like. I usually ask to do camera to camera, but this time, I looked like a mess, so I exchanged numbers with one guy and we talked for 10 minutes through the phone. He seemed nice, so we arranged to meet the next day for coffee. We decided to meet in Jabal Amman in front of this nice, old café.
First dates are a little dicey. Doubly so when it's a blind date. Make it a double date on top of it and you're talking about four times the dicey-ness. And, as far as dicey goes, it goes off the charts when it turns out that you know your friend's date. Know him very well.
It was a classic set-up, my friend's boyfriend's friend needed a date. The two guys showed up and were already a little boozy. My friend and her boyfriend sneaked off and I was left with a drunk fella. And then his vomiting. I decided not to move to the second phase of the date and somehow I was the bad guy...
First dates can be awkward, especially if you met online and are seeing each other in the flesh for the first time. You might have nothing to talk about. You might be too different. Or, you might actually get along, but end up downing a few too many shots and start venting about your crazy ex, never to see your date again. With new online dating site DuoDater, you can bring your BFF (or even entire posse) along to make the experience of meeting a stranger more organic — and way more fun.

Why a big, sexy bathroom isn't really that sexy. Wedding porn could be ruining your wedding. The ten spendiest weddings of all time. Eyeliner on men? Would you rather be skinny or have regular sex? Double dates are great for you. Are post-college men more chivalrous? Have you acted dumb for a date? What to expect when you're dating an Aquarius.
The super-nerds at MIT's Sloan School of Management have figured out one of the best ways to get you some tail: friends. Assistant Prof. Joshua Ackerman asserts that a wingman (non-gender specific) is the best way to find someone new. Men and women use friends completely differently. Women use their buddies (irrespective of gender) to shut things. Men use their buddies (irrespective of gender) open it up.
Having a wingman on a date is pretty sweet deal. It's nice to have someone to deflect some of the awkwardness, hence the invention of the double date. It's particularly helpful on a blind date. But, if you're not a teenager, it's a little bit of a weird thing to get into. A couple of guys, Dave and Ethan, show adults how it's done.
