The company describes itself not as a dating site but as a social club."I think saying it's a date makes things uncomfortable," he said."Hopefully things will click more naturally than that." "More naturally," in this case, is all about making conversation and interaction easier on singles.
Duo Dater is a new website that is centered around setting people up on double dates."To actually hope that everyone has fun [on a group date] is a longshot," Flachner says.From the way my friends describe online dating, to hope that anyone has fun on any date is a longshot, no matter how many people are there. Users can sign up for Duo Dater through Facebook or the traditional way, choosing a username and password and all that fun stuff.Having a friend with you on a date can help your real personality come through, Flachner says.Actually, the way Flachner frames it, Duo Dater is kind of like the bowl of porridge from Goldilocks that is "just right." One-on-one dating sites like and OKCupid are intimidating and awkward; group dating sites like the three-on-three Grouper and up-to-ten-at-a-time Ignighter are too large to make a real connection and too difficult to coordinate logistics-wise.
