Finding the right senior chat room for you

Print Friendly

Once you’re ready to dive into the world of online chatting all that’s left to do is find a senior chat room and sign up. As we retire and our families move away to start new adventures, you might find you have more time on your hands or want to expand your social circle to find people who share your interests and hobbies or have had similar life experiences that you can relate to.

Trying new things and joining clubs, societies and other groups is a great way to get out there and meet new people, but if you live in a rural area, have restricted mobility or don’t have access to the right transportation or opportunities to socialise in your community, it can be more difficult to connect with others in your age group.

Particularly for over 50s and 60s, the internet is a great way to combat loneliness and meet new friends. Chat rooms offer the opportunity to interact with others and talk about everything from your grandchildren to tips for your garden. The options are nearly endless – online there are thousands of chat rooms to choose from where you can connect with others and share a laugh.

Finding the right chat room for you

The most important thing to remember about chat rooms is that it’s up to you how much or how little you talk about, how long you talk for and what you say. While most high quality websites have checks in place to make sure there are no fake users, it’s important no matter who you’re speaking to or how much you feel you trust them never to share personal information in a chat room, for example your bank details or full address. Being mindful of your own personal safety and security will allow you to enjoy yourself and make the most of your time chatting to new friends.

If you have a special hobby or interest – gardening, collecting, art or literature for example – this is a great way to explore online chatting. Chat rooms with a very specific focus take some of the pressure off because instead of worrying about small talk, you can spend your time discussing the topics you love and connecting with people who share your passions. Once you’re more comfortable, chat rooms made specifically for seniors can help you meet people who you can share anecdotes about your interests, retirement and families with.

The best chat rooms for over 50s and 60s

Once you’re ready to dive into the world of online chatting all that’s left to do is find a chat room and sign up.

The online chat rooms here at Silversurfers emphasise the importance of connecting with people for our general happiness with  interesting topic discussion, and are geared specifically at the over 50s, so you’ll be sure to find people in similar walks of life.

Similarly, the chat rooms on Buzz50 make it easy to find chats and discussion forums with other over 50s that interest you. Senior Chatters is another high quality chat website based in the UK, where you can go to chat, create personal blogs and take part in private chatting and private messaging as well as group forums.

To connect with a broader group of people of all ages and backgrounds who share your interests and passions, Yahoo Groups is a very popular service and is easy to use to discuss everything under the sun. Finally, if you’re looking to form offline relationships by meeting people online, try Meetup – this site is specifically designed to help you connect with people in your community to get together and try something new.

Hi Westfield,my mother said always be polite,so even at 71 I do try,hence the goodnight. I wasn't going to bed, but it wouldn't have been long,because the birds in the north of England get up very early and boy do they make a din, but its very nice.are you nocturnal?

I'm not sure what im doing but I learn from my many mistakes believing along with Albert Einstein thant he who makes no mistakes never learned anything. I've travelled a fair bit in my younger days but have been settled in Suffolk for 32 years. I'll chat about most things but I hate shopping, makeup and nail extenstions. I love reading fiction mainly but not romance or fantasty. Although my proper place is probably in Hobbiton. I talk too much. Any one out there?

Hi! I'm new to this but I am really looking forward to making new friends. I was a high school teacher many years ago but now teach adults English as a second language. I am travelled, have lived overseas to include Saudi Arabia. I have an undergrad degree in theatre which I did for a profession until I married. My grad degree is in bilingual education and ESL. I love to read classic books as well as modern novels, true crime (specifically serials) and I love to cook! I am a faithful Christian and do Bible studies regularly. Look forward to meeting you all!

Very good article about joining chat rooms! I have been on the Internet since around 1997 and back then I had no clue how to get started, so the first thing I did was put in a search for any website about one of my favourite TV shows...Coronation Street....and up popped quite a few websites. So once i had figured out how to navigate around them, I landed on a Corrie Guestbook and Chat Room...and the rest as they say, is history! In that chat room I met so many people from all over the World (but mainly the UK, Canada and Australia) and many of them are still my friends and some pretty close friends at that....all these years later! I have had the pleasure of meeting up with quite a few of them too which helped me overcome my shyness in meeting new people for the first time. Of course back then I was still working (I was in my early 50's) and now that I'm retired and still great friends with many from the original chat room it helps me to continue to connect with them on a daily basis as I dont' have many opportunities to meet new people where I live. Now we all have migrated to Facebook which I view as a good thing and a bad thing at the same time! A bad thing because it's addictive but not as secure as the chat room I belonged to before Facebook existed! I also find a lot of the stuff on Facebook is intrusive, yet I still go there each day! The advice about protecting your information in chat rooms is very good and important! Also clearing out your 'history' on a regular basis is important information too. I have some friends I have known all my life who are only now just getting more familiar with the Internet and are still learning about how to protect themselves. I'm not an expert in computers but do know a good bit due to being online for so long and I found I learned a lot of stuff by talking to various people in the chat rooms. People are willing to help the 'newbies' most of the time. So don't be afraid to chat....it's fun!

I have for many years been chatting on a Canadian website called Buzzen.com where among friends i know in the Eastern States of Australia we get together once or twice a year in our own states, I have been in a general chat room named 40s_2, which is about the only one I use when I am away on holidays. Even though it says 40s, any age can join. I chat to people from UK USA and Canada, and stay in the general chat rm. I know first time users sometimes go in saying, their name , state and what they are looking for but its up to you, to share whatever you wish.. I started with chat as my kids all moved away from home, 2 inter state into Canberra and Brisbane, but one moved to UK.. she however uses Skype, which was free, now of course its been purchased by microsoft and the messenger part is the private message side of facebook messenger.. I don`t use that very often as you will find that when you add any new people to your friends lists, they are then invited by the software unknown to you, the computer does it as part of its service, so that all your friends all get to share their friends with any one whether you like it or not. I intend to now use facetime on my new ipad to chat to my grandkids , not the other messenger sites as I think
what I chat to my kids about is private, and personal. so when you are joining any chat websites, please try to hide all your personal stuff, like your log in at your ISP,( the server you join the net under) your user name as anyone can join any of those forums, and use that log in information to send you junk male and spam. Also when people send you nice looking jokes or videos with flowers and pets on with sound, remember the person who made the thread or joke, is harvesting your emails and contacts to then send your friends spam. You know what that is? those ads that tell you about , growing your body parts, or look here, we have adverts you will like, that then when you open them have trojans (false cookies) that share your email with others to spread virus and other spam mail. You have to be very cautious. invent yourself, and have a junkmail address for any new chat room you use. Re boot your computer or clear your web viewing before you join any chat room as they tend to check all the things you look at.. use a paid virus checker like avg, or trend, so you can edit out all the junk, have a group of friends who all know about what to keep away from, so some one can
clean your viewing out each couple of days, otherwise your hard drive will fill up and be slower to open your frequent pages, dont leave every page you looked at every day open on your computer, otherwise that will slow it down as well... have some one who really knows computers look at your computer every mth, so you stay safe. if this isnt what you are looking for, join a church group or a club off the net, most times if you are looking for a date, the best person is a friend of a friends that way you can all check up and them. its best to find someone in real life rather than someone who pretend to be someone they are NOT.

Hiya, Poppy,Keltickitty and Dinky. So now there are 4 of us.
Then lets start the chat. Don't like to see you all alone with no one to chat to. But we have to throw something into the pot. Are you in the UK? I live in Devon, perhaps we should at least know your county. If we start carefully, and give a little info, but not too much, we could chat. I gave you each a vote, to start the ball rolling. I have only recently joined this fraternity, but have responded to a few of the polls , to try to get the 'feel' With Spring around the corner, an election in the offing, England getting thrashed at cricket, won some rugby, I am also here, a little bored. Oh and I have grandchildren. With no one to agree or disagree with, so lets gossip to each other. Regards to you.Thats my starter for 10!!

So. I didn't know where anyone was from. I do have a friend in US who lives, Martinsville, Indiana. I live in Devon, which is S W of England. I am sort of blundering around this site, trying to make new friends to chat with, exchange views, ideas, solutions, just about any subject. I am much older than you, and have , 4 children 10 grandchildren. One son lives in Australia, and recently came home to attend to me, and to say a final farewell to my wife who died, suddenly on 12 February. I wont dwell, other than to say now have lots of time on my hands, and that brought me to this site.

Hi, Blackdog. New to the site, and was replying to a couple of comments. In a previous life, I would sometimes ask a question, and no one replied. I am sure that some must just trawl sites just having a nose around, with not much intent other than to use up a little time. I worked for a company who needed receptionists up 'til midnight, and all these did while it was quiet, was just use the pc they had on the desk. The most vibrant I used was when I was caravanning, UK campsite. Always got a response no matter what the time was, some some good chat had.This seems to be my era. I like the fact that it seems to be for all. I suddenly find a lot of time on hand, so am surfing to get motivated, in some direction.

Hello ~ :) I'm isolated and wanting to chat, will be learning how to use the site to see if I can make a few new friends. Needing to make some big decisions but have so few options (maybe none!) and currently dealing with a mountain of problems that are not of my doing, but i'm left to find ways to accept and cope; realizing that life begins to dwindle and the word "future" isn't as meaningful as it once once.. staying upbeat despite everything. Artistic and compassionate.. I am soon to be 64. Stuck in a rural and cold part of the country with no resources and trying to decide what I want the remainder of my life to be ~

Hi I cannot imagine being by myself as you are with no one to talk to. My name is Chris 65 mail my health has been a bit iffy all my life. I am now looking after my wife.
She had a fall about 5 years ago. This has left her with dizziness. She also has arthritis in her joints mostly her knees and has had a couple of minor strokes.
Her sister has recently had three heart attacks and a minor stroke as well. She lives by herself but has family dropping by as well as social services. I drop in most days just to check she is ok.
I hope this well let you know that there are people out there like myself who help.
Is there no clubs in your area you can go and make friends?? Well I must go as it is time to sort the kitchen floor out.

Hi Mick,
I am new to this type of thing, I ended up here because I was bored silly and I started playing around on my computer, I noticed your message on this site, and realised am in a similar situation to yourself insomuch that I am married, I enjoy 'trying ' to play my guitar and I am 66 years old , I don't get out walking a lot these days as my knees have given up on me! as a result I tend to drive everywhere. I do enjoy the odd pint, and going to theater. If you pick up this message, please confirm you have received it and I will write again,
Cheers
