Speed dating for 50 and over

(Erin Gallagher, Daily Southtown) Dozens of Southtown seniors, who came of age in an era when asking someone out was a long and formal process, got together Thursday to participate in a new-age form of matchmaking: speed dating.

The Orland Township hosted a senior speed dating event Thursday at the 94 West Grill and Tavern, 15410 94th Ave.

While men sat at individual tables, women rotated from table to table in five to seven minute intervals, introducing themselves and chatting a little before moving on.

Find a suitable speed dating night in your area and start practicing your conversation openers.

While every speed dating event is different, the basic premise remains the same.

As a reporter for LA Talk said, “ I walked through the venue without even noticing the tables of daters; Speed LA events are so chic and low key you might just walk right by.” We couldn’t have said it better ourselves. Much like a private club, not every dater is for us.
