In 2016, Partners In Care screened a free documentary for members of PIC and the greater community. We learned so much about dating in later life. Here are some of the learned lessons:

Speed dating first appeared in the 1990s but has become much more popular in recent years among baby boomers and seniors. Perhaps it’s the breaking of stereotypes and old taboos among older generations, as well as our increased longevity. Whatever the reason, speed dating – a way to meet many potential matches in a short amount of time – has proven especially beneficial for the over-50 population, who have fewer options for social interaction. Also, since older adults have a better idea of what they’re looking for in a partner, they gain from the chance to meet other available seniors one-on-one. The documentary “The Age of Love” – which follows 30 participants of an actual speed dating event for the 70+ set – helps viewers of all ages see that our search for love and companionship transcends age.
