Dating and meeting friends
You'll also be giving all interested parties the chance to establish some common ground - and something common to talk about.
This is especially important if you're dating someone outside of your usual circle.
And if your date feels passionately about a particular subject - be it politics, social issues or even tutoring underprivileged kids - make sure your friends know to respect your date's opinions, even if they disagree.
