Group Date Feature
I'm not entirely sure how this would work. I think an option when creating a profile could be to create a group profile. I know people already do this, but making it easier for people would encourage more group profiles. Then it would encourage group dates, which would relieve a lot of the pressure on dating. And it would make mutual safer for all.

You could have each person in the group verify themselves the same way an individual verifies. You could also require a picture of each of them individually. Then they can add their name to the top left corner of the picture.
A group could be limited (e.g to 4 people max). Then you could allow groups to filter for other groups, so that groups are seeing other groups.
In my experience, first dates are awkward; there's pressure, it feels inorganic, and it's hard to genuinely be myself and I think a lot of people have the same problem. I am a lot more myself when I am around friends. The church encourages group dating as a great way to get to know a lot of people at once without things being too serious. I think a feature where you can make a group profile and match with other groups would really allow people to make friends and figure out what they actually want in a partner. It would also be great if an individual could select the option to be matched with a group so it's no big deal if you don't have a friend group to go with. Every romantic relationship should be based on friendship and it's hard to make a friendship when you are on a first date already and there's already pressure. I really really want to make this a thing, enough that I'm considering making my own app. I'm very interested in discussing this more in depth so please email me back!

Have a functionality that lets you filter for just group accounts so that people will make more group accounts and people will be able to go on group dates more.

There should be group activities monthly to give you a chance to meet with people to possibly grow a relationship. They could first be offered only in main cities ie… Orem, Salt Lake, Eagle Mountain, etc. Some months they could do speed dating, others it’s just meet up at Applebee’s in South Orem for ½ off appetizers and group hangouts. A chance to do something, make friends, and meet people interested in dating.

At least 6 of the twelve have specifically counselled singles not to date in groups. Group dates are for youth, not adults, We are counseled to pair off. It is easy to be safe by meeting in crowded well lit public places. If you're looking for a group, go to church.
No. It opens the can of worms for jealousy issues.
