A social media platform at its core, Group Dinner Dates was designed for people who would rather take a more refined approach towards the online dating scene. Says owner and creator of Group Dinner Dates, Glenn Smith, "So many single friends and relatives have had too many strange experiences while online dating with more traditional dating sights, I wanted to create something different and more socially engaging." Group Dinner Dates was conceptualized while Glenn and his wife were dining at a local restaurant and a group of teens sat at a long table near them. "I thought, what a great way to meet and socialize for possible future dates, " Smith said. "It seems difficult for singles to meet for the first few times and get to know one another in a healthy social setting these days, " he said. Group Dinner Dates is expected to link members in specific locations with one another and local restaurants.
The site includes a free membership, profile uploads for members and restaurant owners and an Open Table reservation interface. Other features include an open forum and group creation interface where users can create a local group and send one another private messages. There's also a page that will allow members to write reviews for local restaurants and share their Group Dinner Dates experiences with one another.
People looking to create their own social network for the purpose of mingling then meeting at restaurants, will be pleased with this new website. It's safe and as private as you want it to be, you are in charge of your experience.
