Guidelines on speed dating
There are some tips that will help you get the most out of speed dating: Other daters at the event know what they’ve signed up for, so don’t feel you have to lie about your age.
Men who want to date younger women won’t waste their time at a speed dating event for older women.
Older women are trying more and more ways to meet men than ever before.
Speed dating is just one option that presents an opportunity for them to find love or companionship.
Depending on the event, these speed dates last anywhere from about 3 to 9 minutes.
Each event may vary slightly, but for most part speed dating goes as follows: At the end of the event, daters can write down who they’d like to see again and if two daters have listed each other’s names, the organizer of the event will forward their contact details to both parties to take it from there.
When your minutes are over, a bell is rung, signifying that all players should shift to the next seat to meet the next person.
Discussion is fairly open – Usually you are allowed to discuss anything with the potential partner except your real name (if applicable), your job, and where you work.
In fact, speed dating can be fun and exciting in and of itself, whether you meet someone or not.
Speed dating first made its debut in 1998 in Beverly Hills.
It is basically a series of first dates on fast forward that gives multiple people the opportunity to meet in a short amount of time.
More and more cities are holding speed dating venues to reflect the ever growing demand for this age demographic.
The standing joke is of course, “Speed Dating for Seniors” “Are you kidding me”.
