We were told to take our seats, and very fortunately the girls would remain seated for the duration of the speed dating process.
(The waiver, by the way was a release for that show , which was filming inside the sessions."So many of our members find themselves in this boat," said Kim Phillips, manager at the Portage Senior Center."So we decided to try something new: speed dating for older adults." Speed dating has been around since the late 1980s.(I also had plenty of time to try and stare at Adam West, who was signing autographs in the Comic-Con distance. )What really got under my skin was a woman sitting next to me who was very clearly looking to find her true love on this adventure; this made me feel uneasy about my less serious attitude.There were other girls who also seemed really nervous, and/or were spending a lot of time getting ready to meet some dudes by applying makeup, fixing their hair, and spritzing themselves with body spray.
