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.
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.
If any disagreements arise, simply avoid them by politely changing the subject.
You certainly do not want to be thrown off guard and in a poor mood when meeting the next potential partner. After all, you never know what set of eyes from across the room may be on you. Since you will only have a few minutes for conversation with your date, it is important that you get to know each other as efficiently as possible.
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.
After the “daters” have done a full rotation and met one another, each individual will write a list of who he or she would like to see again.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.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.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.
