If your date is a history buff they will leap at the opportunity to visit the Royal Armouries, arguably the most interesting museum in Leeds.
Situated beside the Clarence Dock residential development, it contains 3000 years worth of weaponry and armour.
With greater wisdom and dating experience, older adults tend to know exactly what they are looking for in a partner.
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.
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.
