New York, NY (PRWEB) October 03, 2012
Two psychologists, a Ph.D. urban planner for elder environments, and two Hollywood stars (all over 50) got together after watching the younger generations “connect”, “hook up” and “hang out” via the internet and decided to do something for the companionship needs of older folks. The five partners: psychologists, Drs. Elaine Rodino and Aileen R. Sirey, urban planner, Dr. Robert Rodino, and actors/writers, Renee Taylor and Joe Bologna, offer the 50+ crowd some new dimensions on dating networks.
Their personal touch offers a warm alternative to the corporate, stockholder-driven, computerized match-making systems of most modern firms. Both Premier Dating Services feature a blog with tips and timely suggestions, incorporating boomer and senior humor. They provide entertaining videos featuring comedy stars Renee Taylor and Joe Bologna, combining laughs and some gap-filling small talk to use on first dates. A unique feature of both dating services is a special “HEART to HEART” option designed to permit close friends and relatives to join to help with match-making.
The team created psychologically grounded, age-specific dating services designed not only to answer the needs for romance but also for travel buddies, home sharing companions and the greater varieties of relationships that older people seek to enjoy.
The psychologists, Elaine and Aileen, bring the professional seasoning of over 50 collective years in clinical practice to bear. Their experience informs the design of precisely formatted questionnaires that help members articulate the personality traits and characteristics they are looking for. It shows in the quality of the magazine articles, the newsletters, and in the variety of instructional and helpful media the services provide.
BoomerPremierDating.com and SeniorPremierDating.com are based on the axiom that human generations live on islands in time. Age cohorts from teen to senior are separated from each other by the emotional and biological passages of each group, its’ fashions, verbal expressions, songs, dances and shared historic events; they are separated more profoundly than by any ocean. And if, as often happens when we age, the connections with our cohort dwindle, we are in danger of becoming lost in that sea of time. We still need each other to survive.
