"Old fashion dating new way" is the concept of the site http://www.MeetMeInTheBar.com . This is an online dating site with focus on dar dating. Does it flow well?

Just what we all wanted; another dating site, kidding
Nice Niche Website, dating at the bar, good idea.
You could use the services of a professional graphic designer to make a nice layout for your website.
I just don't like the colours and the layout looks like a 16 year old kid has made the site.
you don't have to compromise the design for Accessibility.
You could definately use the services of a good graphic designer who knows CSS.
Would add that with CSS you can do wonders with Accessibility, like having a drop down box at the top which says, small font, medium, large. depending on your selection the whole layout changes to reflect the change.
and because you are targetting the middle age audience so you definately have to make sure your website is accessible by all.

Firstly you need to pass this test (26 errors)
go to http://validator.w3.org/
None of the images have alt tags, you should also be thinking of moving to XHTML although that is another issue.
For your tables they should be done CSS and need the caption tag.
Check the site through the validator as it will solve most problems then get checked through the blobby site http://webxact.watchfire.com/
It is a pain to do but that is the price of accessibility

We wouldn't know where to begin.
53 HTML Tidy warnings. This would probably jump significantly the moment you switch to xhtml.
Are you serious about accessibility, or standards compliance? If so, you may need to study the specs more closely and apply them diligently to your site. Once having done this, let us take another look.
On a different note, there are two claims being made on your site that lack any form of corroborating evidence:
1) According to a survey 77% of people still prefer to meet other people in the bar.
Which survey would you be referring too? Can you supply us with the results and methodology? Who was in the focus group?
2) America's Fastest Growing...
