It is quite common for men and women to develop friendships and even court in communities. I'm not certain that relationships progress to falling in love as much as we might think due to a variety of reasons. It is possible, though.

I worked with a gentleman years ago whose Mother met a gentleman in assisted living, and they fell in love. It was very nice that the children got together and worked out their (financial) concerns separately, then allowed the Executive Director to marry them! They lives on the same hall for years and they finally moved into one of the one bedroom apartments together.
