#2– Pick locations that are more fun than intimate
Intimate settings are meant for single couples, not double dates. Being overly romantic can be distracting and awkward when there’s another couple with you. Pick relaxed locations that are good for casual fun and conversation.
#3– Avoid winging it. Come up with a plan first.
Ever been with a group of people who can’t decide where to go for dinner? Frustrating, isn’t it? A date can lose its luster when you waste time trying to figure out what you’re doing next or when you have to admit that you can’t afford the restaurant the other couple suggests. Plan out your date in advance.
#4—Always guys against gals
If you’re going on an outing where you have to split into teams, the rule is men against women. This keeps your outing from going sour because your date is highly competitive or one of you turns bossy.
#5– Easy on the PDA
No one wants to see your PDA when you’re on a date by yourselves, let alone on a double-date. You two aren’t the only people in the room and you shouldn’t alienate your guests by being overly gushy or touchy-feely.
Ideas for Double Dates:
- Amusement parks
- Board games
- Game tournaments
