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.Since then, speed dating has spread across the globe.

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”.

For this reason, they benefit from quick dates; they know what questions to ask, and after just a few minutes, they can usually tell if there is potential for a relationship, romantic or non-romantic.

Needless to say, adults over 50 have hopped onto the speed-dating bandwagon and have come out victorious.

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.

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 any disagreements arise, simply avoid them by politely changing the subject.
