Impressing a Girl on a date then her Freinds / Parents...Page 2 of 2    (1, 2)
A friend of my daughters had never tried online dating. She was about 27 at the time. She was nervous about meeting a stranger, so she brought her sister along and the sister sat in another booth but did not participate in the meet/greet. Eventually she married the guy she met.

But your experience with the entourage she brought along for security was certainly uncalled for. It was not like she was the daughter of an ex president and has secret service agents trailing her. That was just down out rude.

I can fully understand having an escort nearby for security purposes, especially if they are in a new neighborhood - but this dating by 'committee' stuff really bothers the crap outta me. Even your best, sweetest friends that you've known for years and may always have your back - are generally going to choose the date that fits THEM best, not you.

I had an online 'entourage' experience of a similar type. I had recently added a friend-of-a-friend to Facebook, and she was part of a 'posse' of single gals that went everywhere together. All kinds of Facebook photos of their adventures. I spotted the profile of one of her friends on Match, and sent a 'wink' and a brief message. She saw it, read my profile. I think each of the other single girls in her 'posse' must of already had a Match profile they kept hidden, because one by one, over the next 48 hours - each 'buddy' had a profile that activated up, looked at my profile, and then disappeared again shortly thereafter. Another 24 hours later I got the dreaded, "No, Thank you." reply.

the 'guy friend' could have been a 'hoverer' . a guy who's been friend-zoned but hangs with her hoping to make something happen..thus would be negative about any other guy..shoot him down

Ah yes. The posse. I think is a female specific thing.

I used to wonder why these out of county/state women were that were viewing my profile.

Sometimes I wonder if they're friends of women I'm chatting with? Who knows.

Orbiters. Same difference.

Waiting for a moment of vulnerability to strike.

A shoulder to cry on.

I fully believe she instructed the guy to tell him that bringing one friend is one thing, bringing two people along is another, she went in with the clear mindset to make fun of the OP and to have her friends reject him for her. That was the entire goal of the evening.

I went to a meet and greet with a girl at a bar who brought her friend along, nothing malicious it was St. Patrick's Day and it was a small town so not many places to go to. I ended up getting along with her friend and hitting it off with the friend more than I did my date The date would disappear to go to the bathroom or to do something else and me and her friend would just talk and joke around. Apparently my date had a crazy ex-boyfriend/husband which she failed to tell me about so that's apparently why she was so freaked out, the three of us went back to her friend's place in which we were all telling stories, I was telling stories about experiences on the boat that I had so far until her phone rang and it turned out it was her EX, she lied and told him that me and her friend were on a date just hanging out since apparently he was not too far from her friend's house and he could see my car parked outside in the driveway. I seriously thought for a second that I was going to have to defend myself if he approached the house but thankfully that didn't happen. He drove away and I left voluntarily.

Geez.

Started reading the thread about a date with a young lady, who brought another couple along.

Then, what pops into my head?????

A tale about an unsuspecting male on a first date with a women , and then a evening evolving into a never ending display of body fluid swapping, and orifices being filled by unknown body parts of recently met lifelong friends.

Yeah, yeah, I know.

Sick.

But, definitely, not boring.

Looking back on it now. I really should have said something but at the time just wasn't geared up for it ..I was in the mood for a date not an interview.. A bit like standing in a crowd talking to 1 person all of a sudden that 1 person becomes a mob and has pushed you into a corner but you didn't see it coming you weren't aware just how you got there until its to late...

BuffaloBill (OP) -- it wasn't a Date. It was no more a date than a gal texting you saying she and her friends are going to be at X place downtown, and feel free to meet up. Personally, I love those. Because if you befriend their friends with appropriate charm & rapist wit, it will increase her attraction level toward ya and get her in her comfort zone. However, in your case, being hit by surprise -- going from a date to something like that does suck. Takes you off your game, too. In those cases though, I'd have some friends on standby. I'd bring them into the place we're at if things seemed a little weird in the set up.

She should have brought up this before the date. If you disagreed, then the date is off. A woman asked me if she could bring her friend and her friend's boyfriend on a first date / meeting. I said no. The date never happened. I think a person that needs to bring other people on a first date / meeting at a public venue is being paranoid. Plus I could end up feeling like a 5th wheel. Since I am a virtual stranger with people that are already know each other fairly well.
