Too old for online dating? Try this Benedictine class
The first step in dating is trying to find someone to date. Online dating vastly expands one’s opportunities, but when it comes to finding a new relationship in cyberspace, the dating game can be even more overwhelming for senior citizens.
Once seniors get over the technological hurdle and learn the rules of online dating, it can be far more gratifying than the traditional route, said Stephen Nunes, director of the Center for Lifelong Learning at Benedictine University.
Later this spring, Nunes, 70, will lead a new “Online Dating for Seniors” course to help older adults understand how they can protect themselves and use online dating services to their advantage. Classes will be from 2 to 3:30 p.m. on Fridays, April 13 and 20, in room 101, at the Moser Center for Adult and Professional Studies in Naperville. The course is $25 per person.
