A double date is when you go out with someone, on a date, and another couple joins you. Some people like double dates because the couples can help each other out if things get awkward or too quiet. If you go on a double date with a friend, the two of you can work together to help each other seal the deal! Going on a double date makes it easier to have more conversations and more things to do. You can tell your date stories about you and your friend and they will get an even better idea of what your life is like.
