The yearning and desire to be loved doesn’t diminish with age. Let’s face it, dating is no easy picnic but it can be especially daunting for our elders who are looking for companionship during their golden years. Whether you have lost your spouse or partner to illness, death, or divorce, it’s never that easy to jump into the fray. AARP has even written articles about dating again and if you’re ready such as this one.
That’s why the Senior Center at The Riverdale YM-YWHA is putting together a speed dating session for folks 60-75 years of age.
From The Riverdale YM-YWHA:
Riverdale Y Senior Center Speed Dating Event
Meet, Mingle, and Match, for Ages 60-75
The Riverdale Y Senior Center will hold a speed dating event for adults 60 to 75 years of age, where participants will meet for seven-minute ‘dates’, mingling over coffee and danish, with the possibility of matching for friendship or more.
