PORTAGE, MI - Speed dating for young people is well-known, but for seniors?
Sure, why not, say organizers of the Portage Senior Center speed-dating events July 17, 24 and Aug. Seniors looking for friendship, companionship and maybe love in all the old places often find themselves without time or patience for the been-there-done-that dating scene.
You can just find a companion to talk to, it takes the fear and stress out of it and gives them a time to just socialize and have fun.” The ladies and gents will be divided into tables and they’ll spend five minutes asking each other questions and having conversation.
The seniors will have scorecards where they can take notes about compatibility “They turn all of their cards in at the end of the night, and then at that point, I go through and actually tally it up on a spreadsheet,” Madak said. And that’s when they’ll get to spend more time with people they’re attracted to and see where it goes.
Demand for the event is so high that in the way these things tend to go, lots of women of a certain age are in the cold because there aren’t enough men to go around.
“We had 30 women try to register, but we have to keep it even,” said Jeff Madak, executive director at Waltonwoods. And why not, Madak says, because in his experience residents at senior facilities enjoy finding new love. “It’s a great opportunity to start socializing and you could kind of say it (speed dating) de-stresses the event.
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.
