Princeton New Jersey PDS Reunion 2012 PDS Sign

Alumni Reunion Princeton Day School

One of the top dating expert advice I can suggest to singles around the country from LA to Chicago to Dallas to Boston and Princeton and New York and Philadelphia to Georgetown is to attend class reunions.


Certainly as a single who is looking, you may have heard this successful singles suggestion before.  However, just because you may have perhaps heard this dating expert advice before that does not dilute or diminish its value for you and its efficacy for enhancing your dating social life.


As a top dating expert in LA, I have interviewed now-married couples and inquired as to how they met and what brought the two of them together in marriage.


One of the Cupids Arrows that brought them together, I have repeatedly heard was “Attending Class Reunions.”  This can be effective for you a 20 something single attending a Young Alumni reunion event to the reunions of High School or College on the occasions of their 10th, 15th, 25th and beyond class reunions.


When you’re a single in your twenties, you might think that attending a Young Alumni reunion would be a waste of your time.  However, what can be very cool and beneficial to you in going to a Young Alumni reunion event it that often you will get a mix of young alumni from your class plus the added benefit of other alumni quite often from the school, college, or university classes closely surrounding your class.  It means that you will get the feature of mixing things up just a little bit without meeting a group of people from an interest background completely foreign to you.


When you’re single and over 30 years old, 40 years old, and over 50 years old, attending reunions mean again you do get to mix it up and mingle with your fellow classmates plus you will frequently have the experience of a handful of “Friends of Your Class Year” in attendance as well.  You all have an immediately safe topic of conversation for small talk to reminisce both about the school, college, or university which you all attended, as well as the town, and sports teams.


Quite often a flirtation can start here either with a fellow classmate, or with the close friend or relative who joined them as well that evening.


If you are widowed, you might attend the reunion of your late spouse especially if you were well-acquainted with friends of theirs from school.  It gives you an easy connecting and talking topic.  And who hasn’t heard of Later In Life romances and marriages springing up and blooming between the widowed mate and a close friend of their late spouse?


Keep an open mind.  Do attend your own class reunion events, and hook yourself up with your friends, singles and married, and sometimes tag along with them to some of their class reunions to mix things up and quickly and easily slip yourself into a social crowd who is familiar but whom perhaps you haven’t socialized with for a least 5 – 25 years.  You never know when the Cupids Arrow you select will strike home for lasting love.


What are your plans this weekend? Get out.  Bring a friend with you and aim to make or renew some new friendships as well.  When you are having fun and being loving, you are your most attractive.  Be open to love, and love will find you.  It has to, because it comes from the wonderful quality inside of you first.


Happy Dating and Relationships,

    April, a good friend of mine had tried a lot of your other advice but to no avail. He was very shy. But he went to his 40th class reunion and hooked up with a wonder ful woman…and they are still dating. I believe they have found their true soul mates.Many people at 25 and above reunions are single again…and you have a lot in common!

    I almost forgot to add this point…dont bring a date to your high school reunion. Yes, I know you want to impress everyone with you hot date…but that is not the way to meet someone new!!! Or to renew old friendships!

    April, I have talked to people who rekindled relationships at reunions. I can see how this would be an easy dating environment because they already have a relationship built.

    Yours In Health!

    I wouldn’t normally have thought of school re-unions as possible date-finding places, but you raise several very valid points about their efficacy – and of course the statitics prove that you are indeed right! Thanks for the latest thing to add to the armoury of the seeking single!

    At first I was really surprised that you would suggest meeting singles at a class reunion. On further reflection, you do have a common starting place for conversation. Informative as always April!

  • Peter Tamosaitis May 14, 2012, 8:16 AM

    Excellent advice, get out more, mix with as many people as possible, there is someone out there just for you.

    reunions are very strange place to start a relationship. We usually meet at the same landscape where you left 10 or 20 years ago. The perception is old but the real person is up to date. How do you reconcile the time gap?

  • Interesting, April, and at my Reunions – I’ve gone to too many and they are getting smaller (the life expectancy thing) – the people there are just too old for serious consideration. (My Bad)

    Makes sense. I wouldn’t have considered class reunions as a place to meet potential partners before reading this post.

    Would have never thought of a class reunion as a potential place to meet someone but it makes all the sense in the world.

    Interesting….as it happens, I have a class reunion coming up and I am still debating as to whether to go or not.
    Be Well.

  • Bryan May 17, 2012, 1:44 PM

    I would love to attend a reunion, my schools closed some 10 years ago and no one is trying to set one up…it’s a same I’d love to see all those people.

    April, what a great read about dating and class reunions. My wife Kim and I met again at my 20 Year class reunion by a mutaul friend from school. That first night we talked for 5 1/2 hours on the phone, running her cell phone dead and then talking on her home phone.
    At that point after a bad divorce and custody battle and gaining full custody of my son. I didn’t even think of getting married again. Kim has been a blessing to my son and I and truly made our lives spectacular. This coming October will be our fourth year anniversary and I know we will enjoy many more years together.
