unless he's selling a pyramid, you're good to go.

The "friend" was actually the guy's mentor for the business; my date had only considered it a sales pitch. When I politely told him how much I didn't appreciate it, he said "gotta do what you gotta do"

Yeah, that happened to me once with a former coworker who I thought wanted to meet up for job search advice. I only humored her because she was an exceptional employee when we worked together (I was her manager for a while), but I couldn't believe that someone that sharp had gotten sucked into such unmitigated advantage-taking bullshit.

I probably would have said no to the date when I saw that the friend tagged along, and scheduled it for another time. From what I've seen, a friend accompanying on a date rarely turns out well. It's a date, a third person is unnecessary, and if you're just getting to know each other, dates can be awkward enough without a third person there. A third person just makes it more uncomfortable because it disrupts the balance, it's no longer 1 on 1. You're getting to know each other, that comes first, meeting friends can be scheduled for later, when it isn't a date.

It was because they had "somewhere to be right after," and I didn't mind because it made me less nervous; it was just a coffee date. But turns out he was just the pretty face and the "friend" was the boss. xD

I know a guy this happened to. He thought he was having a good date, then she started giving him the bootleg amway speech. He stayed for the whole thing, I still have no idea why. The best part was he bought her coffee so he basically paid for the sales pitch.
