    So, I met this girl through a mutual friend of ours, and was wondering if trying to go with the double date with the mutual friend couple as a first date would be considered a good or bad idea?
    Something like a generic restaurant, where easy conversations could be had.
    Or should I try to do the Jamba Juice and walk date first to kind of give us a chance to feel each other out?

    No to a double date as a first date. Doesn't really give you two the chance to know each other. Even though you guy have mutual friends, it still seems as if the date would run more smoothly if it was just one on one. Yeah, having mutual friends there might calm nay nerves either of you might have, but, it would be so easy to slip into comfortable conversation with your friends and forget that you're on a date. What good would this first date be is conversation between you two was limited? :hs:

    Better off with dinner alone or like you said, Jamba Juice and nice walk.

    My parents met on a double date. One of my parent's was dating the other one's friend. :rofl: So they weren't even on the date with each other. :mamoru: They're also divorced now because my dad is a womanizer. :hsugh:

    Bad idea, she might up end having feelings for your friend.

    Has happened to me before.

    My first date with my wife was a double date. It was a blind date for us setup by some mutual friends (who were dating..)

    9826301528476029374193875196498x better an idea for first date. Double date is for later when you feel more established.

    my first date with my ex was a double date. I asked her out, and she already had plans for the night (going to a dance w/ her best friend). she wanted to see me to she asked if her friend could come and I could a date for her

    it actually worked out really well because I hadn't met her best friend yet and I gained her approval
