If your 75-year-old single granny's been flying through boyfriends faster than a teenager on Tinder maybe it's time for an old fashioned intervention.

Tonight, from 5 to 7 p.m. Waltonwoods, a senior living center in Rochester Hills, is hosting a speed dating event for men and women 70 years of age and older.

“We’re having fun,” Waltonwoods' executive director Jeff Madak told CBS Detroit. “It’s a great opportunity to start socializing and you could kind of say it (speed dating) de-stresses the event. You can just find a companion to talk to, it takes the fear and stress out of it and gives them a time to just socialize and have fun.”

Ladies and gentlemen will be split up into tables and will have five minutes to chat and then score each other based on compatibility, CBS Detroit reports. 

“They turn all of their cards in at the end of the night, and then at that point, I go through and actually tally it up on a spreadsheet,” Madak said. Matches will then be notified, he said.

So far, 18 women and 15 men have RSVPed for the event, and Madak told CBS Detroit that he's trying to keep the gender numbers balanced.
