“They’re either too old and don’t ever want to do anything, or, if they’re my age, they’re looking for someone younger.”While we as a society often obsess over the physical needs of the elderly, we rarely talk about the emotional desires for friendship, intimacy, even love and sex that don’t evaporate upon receipt of an AARP membership card.“You’ll hear a family say, ‘But we fill grandma’s time,’” said Kelley Kelch, who leads the Older Adult Ministry at Oak Hills Presbyterian Church. But no one wants to talk about the other needs grandma might have.”In addition to her church position, Kelch has hosted two senior speed dating events designed to help folks ages 65 to 85 meet one another for companionship.
Today I am, because I make the rules and I can change them if I want to. Uh, because I went speed dating this week, and chances are, you're probably curious about what that is/whether it was fun and if you should try it, and I've got your back.

There is no question that Tinder is a game-changer. Whether you believe in the ‘Tinder Generation’ or what Vanity Fair said recently about the dawning of a dating apocalypse, the dating landscape has changed and thanks primarily to dating apps like Tinder.

When a piece of technology comes along and disrupts the way people do things, it needs time for people to work out what it all means. For backstory — I am 37 years old, female, white, Australian and I live in Manhattan. My male peers have an infinite pool to choose from, they can form relationships with younger women if they choose to and all is dandy. Only instead of everything being dandy like it is for my male counterparts, dating younger men when you’re my age comes with an age gap so vast, it is insurmountable. It doesn’t matter how mature, stable, interesting, whether you’re in your sexual prime, how ballerina-perfect your body is or how young you look, a younger guy might like to brag to his friends about bagging an older woman, And that’s the fucking truth.
