Of course, you don’t want to divulge too much personal information to a perfect stranger, but you can politely answer the questions and simply move onto the next topic.
When in doubt, smile and nod – fear not, a new date awaits you in just a few minutes! Hopefully, your date will not engage in political discussion or religious differences given the short amount of time, but as mentioned before, be prepared for anything.
Among the over-50 population, this style of dating is especially common.
With greater wisdom and dating experience, older adults tend to know exactly what they are looking for in a partner.
At this time, we are only inviting registered Stitch members to our events, but we will be extending the speed-dating fun to others in the near future.
(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.Most speed-dating events specify a certain cultural background, religion, or age group as a requirement to participate.Granted, you may not get as much time as you’d like with the person you do enjoy, but you have the chance to spend countless hours with that individual after the event is over. There’s nothing more exciting than meeting a ton of new potential dates in one evening.And even after the event, the suspense of finding out who has put you on their interest list is thrilling.
