Whether you've just turned 16, or you have a few years experience, dating can be nerve-racking. group dates are always the best bet for a more pleasant, and less stressful, experience. And, as per my experience when i was 18 years old "Dating is so much fun. As long as you make important decisions beforehand, relax and enjoy yourself and at the same time to avoid early Pregnancies of our youth in this last dispensation " Here are some suggestions on ways to ensure a fun and wholesome date: -Prepare long before dating. Decide now to keep your standards high, so your decisions will already be made if you are face with a difficult situation. - Group dare are definitely the to go. The more people the merrier! - Have a definite plan. Involve everyone going on the date in the planning process, if possible. - BE smart. Stay away from potentially uncomfortable of unsafe situations. choose an activity and a place that is consistent with your moral standards. - Date friends who know and share your values. You'll less nervous if you know the other people on the group, too. - Wear modest clothing. - Get advice from parents, grandparents, or older siblings about dating. They have much more dating experience than you and can probably offer some good advice. - Obcourse, we should not forget to have a personal prayer before you go on a date. Ask Heavenly Father with any problem you might have. - For safety's sake, be sure your parents know where you are going. - Be considerate of your date's feeling and preferences. - Remember: Good dates don't need to cost a lot of money. - Above all, be yourself. Both you and your date will have more fun that way

Youth days are very fun, where you can experience about courtship and dating. But I agree with you, it is very important that you are always in the right tract. Always think long term goals to avoid temptation because most of the youth in our days are easily tempted, always think for the future. I believe that If someone really love you he will respect you. True love waits for the right time.

Yes, group dates are merrier than the two persons only.Of course,a guy and girl date is much more romantic than that of a group date.Though, the two types of date gives their own definition of happiness and satisfaction in dating.

I am already married, and I only dated 3 guys in my whole life, one of them ended up my husband so I really don't have that much experience, nor "opportunity" to be in some weird dates, thank goodness. Anyway, one of the things my mom always tells us is to always make sure that one in the family knows our whereabouts and what time we're expected to be home. Just to be on the safe side. And always let the guy fetch us from our house so everyone can see how he is, how he looks like, etc. She said it is also a good indcation that the guy have good intentions for you because he took the trouble of meeting your family before you two can even go out.
