Making speed dating cards
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”.
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.
Needless to say, adults over 50 have hopped onto the speed-dating bandwagon and have come out victorious.
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 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.You won’t feel any pressure, and you certainly won’t be stuck with a bad date.
