Dating at 50 and over

1) You are going to meet plenty of new people, so be prepared for anything.

At the risk of being boring, many dates will throw some pretty crazy questions at you.

Whatever the case may be, speed dating for older adults is more common and more useful than ever before; it has transformed into an art, where those who can master its style are most successful. Keep reading and we will catch you up to speed (no pun intended).

Now you might be wondering, how does one speed date? Speed dating is a quick form of dating, designed for meeting multiple individuals in a short amount of time.

Nothing beats the feeling of knowing the date you most enjoyed is into you as well.

Speed dating might seem simple, but there are four tips you should consider before embarking on your next speed-dating adventure.

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.

You won’t get stuck with the date that never speaks or the date that talks non-stop, because every date just lasts a few minutes.

If two participants have written down each other’s names, the event organizer will forward the contact information to both parties.

(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.

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.
