Speed dating for seniors
Five minutes is plenty of time to grab a cup of coffee or flip through the newspaper, but what if that was also all the time it took to meet someone—and make a lasting connection?
That’s exactly what senior centers around the country are hoping to achieve with their latest event: speed-dating. The idea itself isn’t new; speed-dating events have been popping up since the late 90’s, and many singles in their twenties and thirties have used this unique approach to finding a mate. Participants (usually twelve men and twelve women) are gathered in a room and paired up.
Speed-dating is a brilliant way to bring people together, and maybe ignite a spark or two.

In 2014, the documentary The Age of Love followed thirty people, age seventy and up, on their adventures in speed-dating.
While the topic might seem light, the poignant, and sometimes heartbreaking, moments captured during filming brought focus to the overwhelming need for this type of outside-the-box event.
