Interestingly, the presence of another couple also makes you do comparisons regarding compatibility which gives you a deeper insight into the sort of relationship you may have with the other person.

Cons Of Double Dating

Scheduling Can Be Quite Tricky

Certainly, double dates are fun but it is quite tricky to schedule them as you need to manage the timings of four people including yourself to set up a date. In the case the working hours are different or the other couple lives far off from your place then scheduling a double date can be tricky. More importantly, in the case the other couple cancels the date due to some reason then it can make you more nervous and the date may not go as planned.

Possibility Of Competition

One of the possible drawbacks of double dating can be the competition between the dates to impress their partners which can create an awkward situation. Contrarily if one of the two couples hit off while the other couple is yet to get off to a smooth start then it can be a miserable situation for the latter.
