Ambiguous Name: Double Date get usage counts

Samaritan brings up other possible options, and I'm sure the other options were discussed earlier too.

I would definitively stick to expanding the current page (on moving the current definition elsewhere, I am not decided) - I think that the interaction between two dates set some interesting aspects in a Double Date.

Re-clocked.

So people have had mixed feelings on whether having a trope for a simple double date would be People Sit on Chairs or not. I, personally, don't see the harm in it since as a stock plot I think that's worth noting.

As for a rename... how about Double Date Tension? Yes, the tension could theoretically mean anything, but I think that there's not a whole lot else it can be about. Seems like a good compromise between zippiness and clarity.

Alright, so we just need a new name. Throwing another one out there: Double Date Drama. A bit unclear, but I just like the way it sounds.

Can we call this and move on to a name crowner?

It is called; we're currently brainstorming names.

If it is called, why is the crowner still open?

Because Willbyr forgot to actually close the crowner, I guess.

Alt Titles crowner for the renamed trope.
I think the double date with cross-attracted people is too specific to be a trope, really. Motion to cut.

That sounds like a motion to expand to me - the plan was to expand the current page to cover double dates, period. The only difference between what you propose and the crowner proposal is that the old definition is junked in yours.

Considering there's a few good examples of the current definition already on the page, including one I had thought of without having ever looked at it (the one from Castle), I think it's rare but tropable.
I've seen it several times. There are well over 3 valid examples, and one of the examples is from Shakespeare. Sounds like a trope to me.

I added Mismatched Double Date. I'm kinda torn between that one and Wrong Partners Double Date. The latter is somewhat more specific while the former is more concise.

I definitely don't like the others though. Double Date Wrong Partner has sketchy sentence structure and looks like it is about the partner rather than the date itself, and the other listed options are way too unspecific.

Edit. after some consideration I'm sticking with Mismatched Double Date. It sounds more like something I could actually work into a sentence.

I rewrote it to be about the general thing — a double date. Not sure we need anything more specific, but if we do, it should go through YKTTW.

The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.

Alternative Titles: Double Date

Vote up names you like, vote down names you don't. Whether or not the name will actually be changed is determined with a different kind of Crowner (the Single Proposition crowner). This one just collects and ranks alternative names.
