Useful Speed Dating Tips for Single Men Over 50

Wednesday, October 5th, 2011

1. You are who you are

When it comes to speed dating events, you only have a few minutes to provide that first impression. There is no need to offer up false information if you want to find a date. After all, if she’s not going to accept you for who you are, there is no sense in taking it any further. Eventually you will come across someone that has similar interests or enjoys you as a person.

2. Getting Prepared

One thing most men overlook about speed dating events is that you have to be prepared before you go. The next time you head to one, watch all the other guys checking the ladies out. They are really just looking at the sexual side of the event instead of focusing on getting a date. Your job is to figure out what you want in a woman before you go. However, the questions you come up with should be fun and entertaining.

3. Try Online Speed Dating

There are actually speed dating sites that are very similar to what you would see in person. Basically, you sign up for a site and everything is done through live chat. Granted, you have to setup a profile picture and a few other things, but they are extremely helpful for single men over 50. It allows you to sit behind your computer and feel more confident about the situation.

A lot of men who have been out of the dating seen for an extended period of time don’t know how to act in front of a woman. Well, if you fall into this category, you can utilize a speed dating site to hide behind a computer first. This can make the introduction process a little easier. Plus it allows you to get to know someone before you decide to go out on a date.

Just a Recap

These three tips alone can make a monumental difference in the amount of success you have with speed dating. Get a better understanding of what you’re looking for in a woman before you even decide to head out for a speed dating event. If you feel uncomfortable sitting in front of 15 to 20 women, opt for an online speed dating site.
