Blind Dating Blind dating is a common way for dating also. It often occurs when someone is set up on a date through a friend or a third party. People are often set up on a blind date through a friend or a co-worker who knows both parties and believes they would make a great couple. If you are recommended to go on a blind date by a friend who knows you well, you might want to consider it. If your friend knows the other person as well as they know you, they might be right about the two of you connecting and getting along well together. When you go on a blind date you might not have any idea what the other person looks like or you might have been shown a picture. In all cases, the person you will be going out with will be someone you have never met or spoke to before. It is common to be nervous about going on a blind date because you donâ€™t know if the person will like you and you donâ€™t know if you will like the other person. Some people really enjoy being set up on a blind date and many blind dates turn into successful relationships if the right people set the two of you up. You should try to know as much information that you can about the person before you go and be sure your friend knows the other person well before you go to be sure the date will not be a disaster. However, even if the two of you decide that you are not a compatible couple you might meet someone who becomes a very good friend of yours in the long run.
