Stitch helps you speed date from your home or wherever you please. Still unsure of how the whole speed-dating thing works?Click here to watch a movie clip about speed dating for older adults!
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.
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.
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.
It is a formalized process in which the participants are broken up into pairs and rotate partners every 3-8 minutes (depending on the event).
Each pair sits down and gets to know one another, or “date”.
If your date seems to be talking about him or herself for far too long, try to chime in with a relatable experience you have had or an interest you have in common.
