Many people live their life with one partner and then something happens. They either find that one of them is reaching out to other people finding something missing from their relationship, or one passes away.
What do you do when you are all alone and say 40? How do you meet people? Do you start the bar scene again? Not many are really happy visiting bars. People also tend to label you when they see you at bars a bit. Even guys are viewed different than when they are met outside of the bar scene.
Trying to find a group of people that are active and do things you would like to be a part of isn’t always easy either. Many activities such as snow skiing, scuba diving or jetting off to Las Vegas are not everyone’s cut of tea.
Finding a church can be a plus. If you are a Christian, finding a good Christian person to date would help eliminate problems of certain holidays, such as wanting to attend church but feeling it’s not a desirable trait of your date. Church groups doing things together can actually be a safe and not too expensive of a way to date if on a budget. Sometimes bowling is an activity they do.
Then there’s speed dating. Have you heard of speed dating. I cannot say I had prior to reading up on it a bit.
What is speed dating? No, it’s not the girl standing out in front of two souped up cars with a flag and the winner gets the girl. Speed dating is actually a very organized way of getting to know some potential dates before you go out. You can get to know a lot of new people through an organized evening of speed dating. Plus it’s a night out.
What do you do? It all depends on how the event is set up. If women are interviewing men, the women all sit at tables at prepared spots. The men travel from spot to spot being interviewed by the women. They chat a little, the timer goes off and they have to move on to the next spot. It’s a non committed way of meeting people whom you may decide they are interesting enough to go out on a date with.
These event aren’t free. They are lots of times put on as a fund raiser for a certain group. You pay to participate. You are suppose to be single and I think they usually are. Then you are normally given some refreshments and an enjoyable evening visiting with others.
What is someone likes me but I can’t stand them. You don’t directly let the person know you are interested or not interested. If you find someone you find interesting, you let the staff of the event know. They then let the other person know you are interested. If they also found you to be attractive to them, the information is exchanged and the participants are able to set up a meeting outside of the event. If the other person rejects your offer of wanting to see them, you are saved the embarrassment of them telling you so to your face.
A lot of people have found good dates this way and many are marrying the person they connected with. It can be a great way to re-enter the dating scene.
