SA seniors take on speed dating on NW Side

Senior speed dating event held at Villa de San Antonio retirement community

SAN ANTONIO – Love was in the air Sunday afternoon for some seniors on the Northwest Side.

The group of seniors got to do some speed dating at Villa de San Antonio retirement community in the 8100 block of North Hollow Drive.

Seniors had short one-on-one conversations with one another and were able to meet new people. The event was for  seniors 55 years old and up.

"A lot of senior citizens take age into account which they shouldn’t,” said Elouise Herrera. “They should just live day-by-day and just continue. It's just a chapter of a new life."

At the end of the event, the seniors who participated scored their level of interest for each individual person they met.
