Joined a dating site to try it out, really busy with school and life. No spare time. Anyways, got messaged by this pretty cute and mature girl that is 22, and I am 20. Well I got her to text me, and we've been chatting and flirting via text for a couple days. I asked her if shed like to grab lunch this Friday, and she said yes. Well after a day or two more of texting, she sends me this out of the blue today. "Hey, I've got an idea, Why don't you bring a single friend for my cousin, and we can all grab lunch!" I told her its a bad idea for a first date, and she asked why, I told her that I've had some weird double dates before. Anyways I asked the 2 friends I thought would be semi mature during the date and they can't go due to working/etc. I really don't want to go on a double date in the first place though, but I feel like she's not really giving me a choice, Which I kind of understand because we met on a dating site and have never actually met one another.
Thoughts and advice welcome, I'm in a bit of a pickle!
I am praying it goes well and isn't awkward, but oh well, ill make the best of it!

I've never done online dating, but I've always imagined it to be kind of frightening for women, there are a lot of crazy people out there! She probably just wants to bring someone because she has never met you and she doesn't want to find herself alone in a sketchy situation. It sounds like you already know that on some level, but I think it needs to be clear. If you really can't find anyone, tell her that your friends are busy, suggest a double date a different time, and suggest that the two of you meet in the middle of the day in a public place.
