Going out on a blind date is often considered a bad start to any relationship, and single people view it as a trial. They believe their friend or relative is simply seeking an opportunity to get rid of two single people at once, and they often make excuses to get out of it. Oddly enough, meeting that same person at a party or outing might change their mind. It might turn out that this person with a great personality is really wonderful. Their wit is dry without being acerbic, and they love to have fun. Not as ugly as imagined, they can actually be quite nice to be with on a date.
Avoiding blind dates often becomes a game, and this stops a single person from meeting people who might be compatible. They generally state they want to be with someone who is good looking, intelligent and kind. Popular people do not always fit these narrow categories, but it is difficult to get people to look beyond their preconceived notions.
Rather than trying to match up a single person, it might just be best if friends or relatives invite both people to an outing. This will give them a chance to meet without the pressure of a date, and they might hit it off. It would be easier on the match maker who would rather not hear a litany of excuses as to why the date should not happen.
Choosing a popular date can have many different outcomes, and it is best to be aware of them. If the popular person has earned the favor of a group because of looks alone, they may turn out to be high maintenance and picky. Someone who enjoys telling jokes and stories is a person who has earned their popularity, and they do not count on their physical attributes. This is the type of popular date any single person should pursue.
