"AARP 'HOW ABOUT WE ...' ONLINE SENIOR DATING AND DATING BOOTCAMP FOR SENIORS" PROGRAM
Across the USA.
"The idea behind the name 'How about we ....' stems from a more casual informal approach to online dating such as: 'How about we … take my dogs for a walk' and 'How about we … get some tea and do the crossword like an old married couple.' "
"The most popular dates among people over 50 are food-related checking out a new restaurant, say, or seeking out the best chocolate cake in town and going to hear live music. Volunteering is also big. (How about we … volunteer at Pretty Your Park day.)"
Older adults create an online dating profile answering optional questions on education, job, politics, etc., what activity they would like to try out for their first date and what kind of person they are looking to date.
AARP’s online dating guide includes:
-Expert advice on dating after 50 for older adults
-How online dating for older adults works
-How to create an online profile
"How About We ...." Senior Dating can suggest dates that have met a certain criteria and older adults can click on an "I'm intrigued" button letting the other person know that they are interested or they can email them to connect.
