Pros and cons of being set up on a (blind) date?

Dylan1989
So my manager at work wants to set me up on a date with her friend's daughter. So it's basically a blind date. I've never been set up on a date before. But she gave me the option of meeting her first instead when we have our next work party so that I can meet her in a more social and comfortable setting. That way I would feel more comfortable meeting her next time for a real date. And the next work party is coming up soon.

So, for any of you who have been set up on a blind date, what are the pros and cons? How did you feel about being set up on a blind date?
