DuoDater: Online Double Dating

New Online Dating Site Sets Up Double Dates

There's a new online dating site in town, and it's taking an old-school approach to the relatively new form of meeting someone: double dates.

The concept of DuoDater is pretty simple, you just create a dating profile with a friend, find a pair of guys you're both interested in, and then go out on a double date. The profiles are meant to be simple and user-friendly (think OK Cupid, not eHarmony), and the idea is that people nervous about meeting strangers online will feel more comfortable dating in duos. It's kind of like an online dating site for beginners.

I can see how bringing a pal along to meet a guy would help ease those first-date jitters. Plus I know many people (myself included) who have met their future husbands when they were just friends, hanging out in groups. It creates a fun, less pressure-filled situation. However, I can see potential complications already. What if you're into one guy and your friend despises the other? What if you both like the same guy? The last thing you want on a first date is to feel like you're on The Bachelor, competing for a guy you just met. And sometimes it's better to be on your own to really get to know someone. What do you think about online double dating?

I was just thinking that, Melissa. My good friends are single, I don't know many couples to hang out with.

I think this is a fabulous idea! It's safer than a one-on-one blind date and would probably make everyone feel a little more relaxed. I wish there was a version of this for couples. My boyfriend and I don't have many local friends and would love to hang out with other couples who enjoy the same recreational activities we do.

This is Genius! My girlfriends and I have just been saying how we wish we could double date the people we've awkwardly been "winked" at on other dating sites. Now we can...and will!
