A first date (hell, the first few dates) are all about figuring out if the two of you are BOTH attracted to AND compatible with each other. Often, you're going to figure out that it just isn't going to work, and that's OKAY - it's a normal part of the process.
But if in the process of getting to know you, she realizes that she has a friend that would be a much better match for you, why wouldn't you at least go on a date with her and see if she's right? It's a low-risk, high-reward situation. I'd appreciate it.
I would like to see a picture of the friend because even though it's not all about looks if I'm not attracted to her it's a waste of time for everybody. It depends on the way she does it if I'll get pissed off or not. If I feel like it's condescending or petty, or she's just saying it to make it easier to reject me, If I feel like the friend is someone who can't get a guy and I'm just getting pawned off on her then yes I'll be annoyed. But if it's really the case that she's a great girl and she thinks we would be a good match then I wouldn't mind at all. Just make sure that you don't mention both things in the same sentence. Make it clear that you're not interested no matter what and then bring it up as a separate thing.
My first thought would be that she never liked me in the first place, and is in fact finding and screening guys to try and set her friend up with (who for whatever reason can't do so her self). Yes, I would be offended and no, I wouldn't want to go out with the friend.
A little. Don't suggest a friend. That's no way for a relationship to start. Just hooking up with a friend of the person that you really wanted and on the other side no one wants to be the "second choice"
I'd never date a girl if she went after my friend and when he rejected her he said she should go out with me.
We might not be offended, but we know what the fuck you are doing. You're "parking" us close by in case you change your mind later. Your friend will ALWAYS have less sexual capital than you, so that you can "steal" us back from her later if you change your mind.
I mean fair enough you have your reasons for not wanting to go on the date with the guy fair enough but suggesting your freind afterword would kinda be adding salt to the wound.
It would be like if we did role reversal and I said no I do not want a second date, you would proaly at minimum a little upset and then i turn around and try to hook you up with my friend, which would cause you to feel rather annoyed or insulted at the least.
Flattered. However my ego won't ever allow me to interpret anything negatively. It is one of those impressive male-denial ego things. I'd just assume that for whatever reason (probably to save starving children or alike) she has to go abroad for a while but she realizes that a catch like myself would instantly find someone new and she has this friend who she really likes and would like to have a chance at someone as awesome as myself.
That said, I'd decline. It is just poor taste. I dated her, not her friend.
You know this kinda reminds me of situation I've been in. I suggested going out for lunch, and i was told twice to ask so and so she would go with you ask her. I don't know if it was to deflect me asking her (polite rejection or she's speaking for the other girl) see what I would say. I would start wondering if the 'other' girl liked me all along couldn't see it
