Speed dating for seniors nyc who is russell simmons dating now

Too many people in their fifties and beyond have given up on ever meeting a new partner or new friends.

But there are millions of other 50 men and 50 women like you, who have just broken up with a partner, got divorced or lost someone very special.

Speed dating, for those who haven’t been single and looking during the past two decades or so, is a formalized matchmaking process during which two people sit together for a limited amount of time, usually about five minutes, to chat, learn about one another and then decide whether they’re interested in getting together at a later date. For older adults looking for companionship, speed dating offers a way to meet up to a dozen new people quickly and without commitment in a safe, controlled environment.

It’s only recently, however, that seniors have gotten into the game, in part because of the release of the documentary “The Age of Love,” directed by filmmaker Steven Loring.

To help right this imbalance, some seniors are borrowing a strategy from younger generations and trying speed dating in hopes of again feeling that spark of attraction.“It’s hard meeting a man who’s single,” said Sandy Camero, 69, who attended a recent event at the Igo Branch Library designed for seniors who wanted to meet new people.
