So why not just date someone from your friend group? You see him often, you get along with him, he knows you well. If you’re dating someone in your friend group, it’s going to be pretty hard to keep things private.Your friends are going to know about your fights, your sex life and just about any problem you have in your relationship. You can kiss the ‘out of sight, out of mind’ thing goodbye.Your friend group will suffer if it doesn’t work out.You and your boyfriend may not be the only ones parting when you break up.She can usually be found camera in hand, munching on a street food and never has her headphones out of reach.If you’re ‘dating’ chances are you could be planning to meet up with multiple people.If you aren’t sure what type of date to plan, err on the side of this category. /Let’s go to the park and toss a frisbee around on Friday afternoon?Most guys know the pain of the “friend-zone” all too well.

You know you’re going to cross paths again, you know it’s going to be uncomfortable when you have to see him every time you want to go out with your friends and how awkward is it going to be when he starts bringing his new girlfriend around?

This will dictate the type of first date you want to have.

The point of the first date should be to determine if you have a connection with somebody (not fall in love right there).

1) IF YOU HAVEN’T MET THIS PERSON IN REAL LIFE YET: My recommendation is to start with coffee, a drink, or something light hearted like meeting at a park. There’s nothing worse than learning within 5 minutes of meeting somebody that you’re not a good fit, only to have to sit through a three hour dinner or sit in awkward silence next to them at the movies. If it’s going well, there’s an attraction and conversation is coming easily, you can order another.

If not, you can politely decline another round, say you need to get going, and bow out gracefully, saving you both from an uncomfortable evening. Great, it’s time to ask them on a second specific date: “There’s a concert on Wednesday/Want to grab dinner on Tuesday?
