A new way to meet people (minus the awkwardness)

It’s no wonder why people are so reluctant to find true love through online dating websites like match.com and eHarmony; they ask too many questions, take hours to complete, and only give you the chance to interact with one person at a time.

The online dating game is now changing thanks to sites like Grouper and Circl.es where hopeful romantics are matched based on their Facebook profiles and then set-up on a group date along with their pals (genius, right?).  A close friend of mine recently gave Grouper a whirl and while there are a lot of good things she had to say, some of the situations can be… uncomfortable.  Here’s her take:

The Good: Since you are with a group, there’s a lot less pressure for being locked in a conversation with one person the entire time. That being said, the date is much more relaxed and a lot less serious (hello moral support!), so even if the connection isn’t there, you can still have a fun night out with your friends.

The Bad: Since there are 3 guys and 3 girls, there’s a good chance that you and your friend(s) take a liking to the same person.  In this case, just hope no beer muscles or cat claws come out in a fit a jealousy.

Overall, the good outweighs the bad in this situation, so if you are “single and ready to mingle,” definitely give this new way of dating a shot–no pressure!  After all, there are always more fish in the sea…
