I met a girl on an online dating site and we have hit it off very well. I am 32 and she is 22 but seems to know what she is looking for and is very career and family oriented, much like myself. There is a ton of chemistry. We have been chatting over text and phone calls and we are supposed to go on a date this Saturday. She says she wants to bring a friend because of an issue she had with a person that was stalking her. I'm OK with having a trust issue at first, but should I just go ahead and let her bring a friend with her? I was hoping for a nice, romantic time, but this kinda kills it for me. Any help or advice is much appreciated.

Well, maybe you could suggest that you bring a friend as well? That way at least you can have some alone time with her and get to know her a bit without it being awkward.
I've done many online dates and it can be hard when you have the first in real life meeting. Some people get scared and it makes them feel better to bring a friend. I did to the first one I went to, but after that I decided to just meet in a public place.
Really it is kind of sucky to have other people around, it makes it hard to get to know the person and really talk. The only thing you can really do is hope she changes her mind and decides to meet up with you on her own or that you can find a friend to bring to help make it not so awkward.
Try to plan a fun activity that you guys can connect but still chat. We did mini golf.
