On the other hand, if you find that your date is asking too many questions, simply reverse the same questions back onto him or her.
That way, you both will get ample time to divulge and learn information about one another. Speed dating is all about first impressions; simply trust your instincts about those you meet. In speed dating, only you are the best judge of who is right for you. Stitch is currently organizing speed-dating events in select areas.
Needless to say, adults over 50 have hopped onto the speed-dating bandwagon and have come out victorious.
First and foremost, speed dating eliminates pressure – pressure of giving out your phone number even when you don’t want to, pressure of avoiding awkward pauses in conversation, pressure of telling your life story to a stranger you just met.
(The idea is that the participants will not feel pressure to accept or request contact information face to face.) The first organized speed-dating event took place in 1998 in Beverly Hills, California.
Since then, speed dating has spread across the globe.
With greater wisdom and dating experience, older adults tend to know exactly what they are looking for in a partner.
For this reason, they benefit from quick dates; they know what questions to ask, and after just a few minutes, they can usually tell if there is potential for a relationship, romantic or non-romantic.
When time is up, the coordinator will ring a bell, blow a whistle, or clink a glass, at which point the participants switch seats to meet the next person.
Most speed-dating events specify a certain cultural background, religion, or age group as a requirement to participate.
