French translation:les filles avec qui ils ont rendez-vous
Explanation:
peut-être se connaissent-ils à peine, ou bien est-ce la première fois qu'ils sortent ensemble. Ce ne sont peut-être pas encore leurs 'copines' ou leurs 'petites amies' mais seulement des relations, des 'filles avec qui ils ont rendez-vous'

copines


Explanation:
Do not say "rendez-vous" for dates, in this case; what you mean is their girlfriend. There is no equivelent in French for DATES in that sense > I would suggest "copines" (=girlfriends).

Les garçons attendaient l'arrivée de leurs copines...

Blondes


Explanation:
We use "blondes" for girlfriends in Canada. A girlfriend implies more in the relationship than simply a date though...
