Of a dating couple
Be respectful of boundaries and only hang with your original friends' circle at group events that they've planned.
But finessing the art of double dating with another couple on a regular basis requires practically as much restraint -- and guerilla social maneuvers -- as you used when you first started seeing your now-spouse.
Just, uh, don't send out a mass Evite the very next day. You know, just to test out those stemless Riedels on the back patio. It sounds fun now, but what about 40 minutes in the future when you're all at your place, it's p.m., and they're looking at their watches, yawning and feeling like hostages on your couch?
The last thing you want to be is a one-night stand, so bid adieu at the restaurant. Moments after your date ends, you whip out your i Phone and search for your favorite new couple on Facebook so you can send friend requests.
Today, 12% of 55- to 64-year-olds report ever using an online dating site or mobile dating app versus only 6% in 2013.
One factor behind the substantial growth among younger adults is their use of mobile dating apps.
About one-in-five 18- to 24-year olds (22%) now report using mobile dating apps; in 2013, only 5% reported doing so.
