So I am a single attractive guy. I'm funny and intelligent. I'm not trying to be conceited, those are things I've been told. I do believe those things about myself but I am still very shy and insecure when it comes to meeting women or approaching them. Therefore I am not so great in the dating game. Pretty non-existent actually. Now because of the that, I periodically have been offered to be set up with co-workers' friends or friends of my friends on blind dates. I do appreciate the help, but I can't help but think that that situation is extremely uncomfortable. At least for me. I have little dating experience and one that is a blind date makes me feel even more nervous about an already nervous situation. I feel very uneasy about being thrusted into a one on one situation with a complete stranger. At least in a normal dating situation there's already a certain level of attraction before you go out with them. I feel like I would prefer my coworker to setup a group meeting or something that would allow a meeting but not be so intense. Maybe that is too cowardly but I don't want to take some girl who I've never even seen to dinner or out and be stuck there.
Are blind dates or set ups a good idea? Should I try to get something set up that isn't so immediately intimate?

i would give it a shot if my friends set me up but I have terrible luck in relationships and dating so I don't know if it would go past a first date. guys tend not to want to date me but I think I'm reasonably nice and attractive because I have some good guy friends and I get creeped on in the college town nearby :/0
