With greater wisdom and dating experience, older adults tend to know exactly what they are looking for in a partner.
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.
Most speed-dating events specify a certain cultural background, religion, or age group as a requirement to participate.
Speed Date Philadelphia™ introduces single professionals to each other at fun and exciting speed dating events and singles parties in Philadelphia.
Our events take place in restaurants, lounges and other upscale venues.
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.
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”.
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.
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.
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.
Granted, you may not get as much time as you’d like with the person you do enjoy, but you have the chance to spend countless hours with that individual after the event is over. There’s nothing more exciting than meeting a ton of new potential dates in one evening.
