Meaning of Gokon

Gokon is a Japanese group blind date.
It’s common among young people. (especially amoung 20’s)

In most cases, the rule is to adjust the number of men and women.
If there are 3 men, they needs 3 women.
I think 3 on 3 is best, 6 people can talk about same topic and they can use same table.
