Dating for the elderly
The Igo Branch Library held an event Thursday that emphasized the social aspect of an elderly person's health. That helps overcome loneliness that many older people feel," Irene Scharf of the Igo Branch Library said.The event, Senior Speed Connect, is an offshoot of speed dating.As more elderly people are becoming more knowledgeable and confident in their ability to use the internet it’s only natural that they’ve also embraced the concept of internet dating, which is an area which has become increasingly popular in general.
Once you’ve decided on a site you think is best for you, see if it has the opportunity to take a free trial before you have to decide if you want to upgrade to a full membership.Would you rather travel 50 years back or 50 years forward?The seniors were told to approach at least 10 people they didn't already know."I love it, the questions are very deep, some of them, so it is very interesting to know things about people," Blanca Garcia, a participant, said."This event is great because it gives you and opportunity to meet people on a personal basis," Jose Elizondo, a participant, said.
