Judging People By Their
Should you judge people by their
That might depend on what kind of people they are, whether they
have had the opportunites and life experience to put them into contact
with a large number of potential friends. To take an extreme example
to demonstrate what I mean here, suppose you encountered someone
marooned with only a small group of people on a remote island? Obviously
we can't always choose our friends.
But when it comes to online dating
being able to see what our new dates friends are like could give
us a lot of insight into the personality and indeed the trustworthiness
of our new amour.
Getting to know, or at least to meet,
a new date's friends is a good idea for other reasons too. Safety
comes immediately to mind. Of course most people online -- as in
the real world -- are who they say they are. But you can never be
certain that you haven't been unlucky enough to encounter one of
the world's liars.
It is much harder for people to maintain
a lie in front of friends and people they know however, so meeting
friends could teach you much about the person in that respect.
Meeting a new date's friends can teach
you a lot about the person's personality too. If his friends care
about him and that is clear from their interactions then you can
deduce that he is someone worth caring about. Whether you want to
care about him in the long-term is another matter, of course, but
at least you can see what he is like.

Naturally, don't ask to meet his friends
on the first date. It should be fter several dates, you have to get to
know him a bit first while he's on his own. The old saying 'three's a
crowd' comes into play here.
Other things to pay attention to when you
meet his friends. How does he introduce you? Take note as this can reveal
much about what he thinks of you.
Meeting his friends can have its drawbacks
too. Does he want to spend too much time with them at your expense? Also,
they may not all like you, which can cause problems. Overall though it's
a useful tactic to get to meet his friends after a few dates.
