The “You” is a succession of seniors in the Rochester area whom Loring is contacting in the hope they will become subjects in his film.They’ve all signed up for a senior speed dating event that Loring has picked as the locus for his exploration of love and how it changes – or doesn’t – as we age.Many interviews and hours of filming later, when “The Age of Love” premiered in April 2014 at the Newport Beach Film Festival in California, one audience member called it “the best reality show I have ever seen.” That might be because the film is an immensely honest look at ordinary people who find themselves unexpectedly looking for love later in life.

And, like any good reality show, it involves raw emotional drama and comedic touches – the stuff of speed dating. Try thinking back to high school dances – then add steroids.

Speed dating is a structured event that gathers singles in a central location – the Rochester event was held at a local restaurant – and pairs them with one another in quick, five minute mini-dates, until everyone has had a chance to chat.

Participants keep notes on one another, which they later submit to the organizer.

Much research demonstrates that physical attractiveness predicts initial romantic attraction.
