Group dates can be a hit or a miss. If done wrong, they can be a bit awkward. A group date can be a great idea when you want to get your beau to meet your friends.

If you’re thinking of planning a group date, but aren’t sure how to pull it off, look no further! These six group date ideas will serve as inspiration for a great date with your sweetheart and your pals.

A little friendly competition never hurt anybody, right? Hosting a game night is a great way to get your friends and significant other to get to know each other a little better. A game night makes for a perfect group date because it’s fun, challenging, and budget-friendly!

2. Wine Tasting

For a more sophisticated approach to a group date, take your friends and sweetheart to a wine tasting. Take a night off to try different wines at a vineyard or restaurant, and experience something new with the people you love the most.

3. Bowling
