Hitting The Senior Speed Dating Circuit

Speed dating is a trend that either makes a lot of sense to you or falls under the category of something other people must like. Those that enjoy speed dating see it as a low pressure way to meet many different people outside of a bar setting or as part of a busy work week. Those that attended one such recent speed dating event likely did not share that same busy work week motivation.

In Cedar Falls, Iowa, speed dating has been tried out with a demographic much different than the typical speed dating group, inviting only singles 60 or older not to find a love match necessarily, but more to find someone their age to spend some time with. Meeting people at an older age can be difficult, especially for widowers that are not accustomed to the typical meeting spots, and speed dating seemed like a good idea to the founders to get senior singles out of the house and into a chair across from someone similar.

The speed dating format was much the time, but with a longer question and answer period with each person to allow for a more leisurely pace. The only kink in the plan may have come when only two men showed up to the event, but getting seniors out and into a social setting that offers low pressure is a great way to stave off some of the loneliness single seniors can sometimes feel.

While this senior version of the phenomenon is different in that it is more for friendship than necessarily a romantic connection, the principle of getting people out and mingling is a valuable one, even if it comes in the highly structured environment of a speed dating event. Senior speed dating, according to the article, has long been popular in areas with a large senior population and that can only mean good things for the elderly of Cedar Falls, Iowa, looking to once again get into the business of meeting others.
