Speed dating is a formalized matchmaking process of dating system whose purpose is to encourage people to meet a large number of new people.Its origins are credited to Rabbi Yaacov Deyo of Aish Ha Torah, originally as a way to help Jewish singles meet and marry.
If there is a match, contact information is forwarded to both parties."So we decided to try something new: speed dating for older adults." Speed dating has been around since the late 1980s.It typically takes the form of an organized event where a group of men and women rotate between tables and meet each other over a series of three- to eight-minute "dates" during which they converse, ask questions and learn about each other.Sure, why not, say organizers of the Portage Senior Center speed-dating events July 17, 24 and Aug. Seniors looking for friendship, companionship and maybe love in all the old places often find themselves without time or patience for the been-there-done-that dating scene."So many of our members find themselves in this boat," said Kim Phillips, manager at the Portage Senior Center.
