Speed dating for over 50s in london

Speed dating first evolved over a decade ago, but it has become much more popular in recent years, especially among baby boomers and seniors.

Perhaps the increasing need for companionship is to blame, or maybe the adrenalin-pumping nature of the event makes it so attractive.

Among the over-50 population, this style of dating is especially common.

With greater wisdom and dating experience, older adults tend to know exactly what they are looking for in a partner.

Since then, speed dating has spread across the globe.

Most speed-dating events specify a certain cultural background, religion, or age group as a requirement to participate.

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.

After the “daters” have done a full rotation and met one another, each individual will write a list of who he or she would like to see again.

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.
