When you’ve been married to someone for maybe 50 years and you lose them, it’s a significant change,” she said.The idea sprung from a film that Bernat screened at the center in collaboration with the Charleston chapter of the National Aging in Place Council, which also co-sponsored the event.The film, “The Age of Love,” documents a speed dating event for individuals between the ages of 70 and 90 at a senior center in Rochester, N. “We had about 200 people here that day to watch the film.”The filmmakers provide a speed dating kit for centers interested in holding similar events, so Bernat set one up in late July.“We hear a lot of people talking about that they’re lonely, that they’ve missed a spouse.Southwell and about two dozen other women and men over the age of 70 in the Charleston area recently took part in a Speed Dating event at the Lowcountry Senior Center.“I was just a little apprehensive,” said Southwell.“It was more fun than I thought.”Despite some hesitation, Southwell, who has been a widow for 15 years, said she attended the event because it felt like a safe space since she goes to the center regularly as a member.“Dating online, I’ve heard good things and bad things, and at my age, I don’t take any chances,” she said.“It’s very hard to find a man that’s single.”Elizabeth Bernat, who is the director of Senior Services for Roper St.Francis and serves as executive director of the Lowcountry Senior Center, said they jumped on the chance to hold this event once they heard about it.However, that hasn’t been easy to find because Southwell, who lives on James Island, is 80 years old.
