Online adult speed dating sa dating club
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”.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.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.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.
Stitch is the real-life version of speed dating over 50; through our service, meeting people is quick and simple.
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.

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.
