GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO/KJCT)– Love is in the air at the Commons of Hilltop senior living facility as they host speed dating Friday night.
The “Love knows no age” speed dating event is for singles at least 70 years old. 15 men and 15 women will go on five-minute dates before moving on to the next participant. If there’s a mutual match, their contact information will be shared at the end of the night.
“They are so excited some of them are telling us what they’re gonna wear. We’ve also heard, from a lot of people, that they wish that our age limit was younger. They wish that we had more space cause we hit our waiting list pretty early,” says Hilltop’s Events Manager, Paige Cadman. “We’re definitely looking at doing this again in the future.”
The goal of the event is for single seniors to find a companion because many face isolation which can lead to diminished health.
