I put my husband after 7 years, in assisted living in May. It was the hardest thing I've had to do. I feel so lonely. He sits in his chair and eats. I want to know someone else like me ...thanks
Ok.. here we go. Good afternoon everyone. I'm new here. About me briefly. I am an American male living in Washington DC. I am in my fifties and plan to retire in 2023. To celebrate a lifetime of work, I decided to cruise around the world. I was lucky enough to grab one of the last cabins on the MSC Poesia. Tasso Deck with an obstructed Oceanview. The ship departs Barcelona Spain Jan 7th, 2023 and returns May 5, 2023... 118 days 53 destinations 33 countries with 7 overnight stops... Cruise thru the Suez and Panama Canal I am looking for someone to share the cabin and cost. I know it going to difficult to find someone that's able to take a 4 months vacation. But it could be perfect for a solo traveler like myself. I have been on 17 cruises in the last 10 years and have 5 more scheduled for this year. If anyone is slightly interested or have any question ..you can contact me.. [email protected] Also... the cabin price includes dine and drink package and 15 excursions. thanks, JM
Good evening everyone, how has it taken me this long to find this wonderful site?? So much to check out on here! Just to introduce myself briefly-my name is Lyn, I am 60 and a widow. I have a grown-up son who is married with 4 young children and a grown-up daughter who lives at home while she saves for a deposit. I live on the south coast of the UK just a few mins walk from the sea. We also have a 20 week old black Lab puppy so as you'd imagine life is super busy right now. I am a volunteer for a UK-based crisis line, something that I really do love despite it being challenging at time, good to give something back though! I also love singing, travel, baking, sewing, crochet, TV and much, much more. I am a regular churchgoer, it's part of who I am but I have a huge number of non churchgoers amongst my friends and I know they would tell you I'm no bible basher ;) Would love to chat and make new friends and extra brownie points if you are from the USA too.....but looking forward to chatting to UK friends as well...this is me, I could start a convo in an empty room haha. Looking forward to getting to know you.
Hello everyone new here just feeling a bit lost and lonely my husband of many years passed away last year and finding it very hard to adjust to life alone and would be nice to chat to people
Visited England two years ago and traveled far less than I wanted to….more of a family trip than a vacay. Definitely want to go back once Covid fears die down. Currently living on the east coast of America, am 62 next week, single, retired, and have many interests. Not your “typical” American. 😋 Feel free to write if you want a pen pal, or a friend across the pond.
Employment wise are you looking to take on a challenge and get involved with a charity?
I'm new, just looking for someone to chat with- newly single newly retired blah blah blah :)
Good Evening! My name is Lisa. I am 56 and live in Texas. I am widowed since 2020. I live with my 1-1/2 years old doxie/beagle mix, Timmy. He came from a rescue and has reactivity issues. Alot of people here in the states adopted pets during the pandemic & then returned them when they got back to their lives- absolutely heartbreaking! Need I say I'm an animal lover. I work from home and would love to meet a friend in Europe. I hope to be able to travel there in the next few years and immerse in the history and beauty and culture. My wife & I always wanted to go but she had a pulmonary condition the last 17 years & knew all the walking would be too much. We met in middle school & spent over 40 years together. Unfortunately, a gallbladder surgery went wrong, So here I am now. I've been on my own since 15 but never lived alone-and "pandemic" alone. So that's me. If you're looking for a kindhearted friend (no meanies!), like animals, and don't mind that I'm from the U.S., maybe we can be penpals? Peace & luv to everyone...
As we approach the end of the Queen's reign the country needs an honest, grown-up debate about the monarchy. We need to stop and ask ourselves: Can't we just choose our next head of state? With polls showing young people wanting an elected head of state, the succession of King Charles will be a major turning point in the monarchy's history and in the growth of Britain's republican movement. There is going to be Billboards about this up and down the country. Interested?
