Ok, so FI and I are disagreeing on something…
We have ten people per table. He has one "group" with 14 people, and another group with 6.
I say put 10 of the larger group together, and put the 6 that know eachother with 4 from the other group.
He wants to mix the groups….he says have two tables with half of each group.
Which is more appropriate?

Either one works really, there is no right or wrong. It’s a matter of personal preference. It’s hard to say which is the better option since we don’t really know the people and the dynamics of the relationships or their interests or ages or anything. Mixing might be easier if someone complains they arent by so and so because you could just say it was random, but there isn’t any reason why you can’t do it your way either.

i think i like his way better. the 4 people who have to go to the other table may feel left out. thats just my thought 🙂

I like his way I have to say. Then it’s not like you’re singling somebody out to sit at the other table, etc.

The two groups are: 6 neighbors, and 14 people who all know eachother from taking their dogs to the same park. I feel weird separating the neighbors, which include one single woman and 2 widows.

I don’t think there’s a right asnwer. My gut would be to go with your suggestion, but if they are his friends, maybe he should pick?
