Do TimeOut's 'undateables' include any senior citizens?   I haven't seen any, but maybe I missed something.    If you haven't featured any yet, it would be great to see some soon.   There are plenty of us around, and many of us are single.  And please - by senior citizens, I mean those of us who have actually passed our 65th birthdays.  Far too often, those in their 20's think of anyone over 40 as a senior.

As someone who is the same age as your guest editor, Susan Sarandon, I see a distinct lack of attention paid to the social needs of those in my decade of life who are not celebrities.   It would be great to see that change. Thanks!

I have a complaint: I'm an avid reader of the "Undateable" section in Time Out, where Time Out sets up two strangers on a date. Well, last week's article featured a boy who wrote extremely cruel things about his date. I understand you want people to be honest, but I can hardly support someone ripping their date to shreds publicly.

Do you have the link,

@Kerry A OMG he is clearly seems so find someone soon while he will just be single and unhappy forever..

@Kerry A 

Seriously. If he wants to really talk about looks, let's talk about looks- HIS in, when you look like he does, you should probably be a little nicer. Or at least funny. No need to ask why he's single- it's pretty obvious. I'd say Ariana dodged a seriously miserable and boring bullet.

@Kerry A Honesty isn't appreciated anymore. Instead of leading her on, he gave his honest opinion.
