Speed dating has been around since the late 1980s. It typically takes the form of an organized event where a group of men and women rotate between tables and meet each other over a series of three- to eight-minute “dates” during which they converse, ask questions and learn about each other. At the end of each interval, the organizer signals the participants to move on to the next date.
Participants complete confidential rating sheets for each date, saying who they like and, most importantly, who may receive their contact information. At the end of the event, the organizers collect the score sheets, look for mutual likes and when there’s a match, forward contact information to both parties.
The fun includes light refreshments and vintage music.
Space is limited. This event is free. Seniors interested in participating should register at the Fairfield Cordelia Library, online or call 1-866-572-7587.
