Dating, romance, love - these experiences do not belong exclusively to the young. They are for people of all ages. Being in healthy relationships with other people is essential to a healthy life, no matter what your age is, and today’s seniors are not afraid to meet new people. With the “Baby Boomer” generation now numbering 80+ million, various opportunities have been created for them to get connected. Search for senior dating sites online and you'll be inundated with options.
There's a New Game In Town
“Never too Late to Date” is the newest game show airing on Channel 6 in Laguna Woods, CA. Produced by local resident and associate producer of “The Dating Game” (1966-1968), Phil Doran is creating opportunities for members in his 55+ community, grey-haired or not, to meet and date.
Doran explained, “What intrigued me was that (the show) could illuminate a segment of life here that’s very under-reported - namely single people meeting and greeting, dating and mating and generally looking for love and companionship.”
This village version of the iconic show is set up in the same fashion. A single senior questions three unseen single seniors and selects one for an all-expense paid date. Similar to “The Bachelor” and “The Bachelorette”, the contestants are accompanied by a camera crew so that audiences can view their special date. Perhaps this pilot will launch a whole new model for reality TV.
