Finding love is a difficult task at any age, but once you reach the later stages of life, the challenge can be even greater.

Because meeting new people can be especially hard, some organizations across the country are creating opportunities to make it a little bit easier by hosting senior speed-dating events.

Last month, the Shepherd’s Center Central in Kansas City organized their own speed dating event targeted to people over the age of 55, the first event of its kind in the metro.

Dating is hard, even for those just beginning that scene. But once you pass the age of 70, the challenges can be even greater. We talk with two seniors who stepped outside their comfort zones to try a new way  of meeting people and a film director who holds the issue close to heart.

Here's some news: Relationships are complicated. So complicated, in fact, that's it's never a bad time to review some good rules for how to manage these very complex beasts.
