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.
You won’t feel any pressure, and you certainly won’t be stuck with a bad date.
On the other hand, if you find that your date is asking too many questions, simply reverse the same questions back onto him or her.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.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.Sign up for our Stitch newsletter here, and we will keep you in the loop!Speed dating first evolved over a decade ago, but it has become much more popular in recent years, especially among baby boomers and seniors.
