I will be 67 next month and retired from the many different jobs in my working life. I guess that I didn’t ever find my calling. I went to university at age 59 but when it was over it was too late to launch a new career. I wanted to lecture but students don’t want to listen to old fogies, so sadly I put aside that idea and settled into life as an eccentric dog owner. I live in a beautiful Lancashire valley surrounded by hills that demand they be walked/climbed, how could I refuse? I would like to do a bit of cycle touring but a recent diagnosis of spondylosis and some hip pain means that I may not be doing a world tour anytime soon! I’m keen to make some friends as I have been on my own for a very long time now, my daughters don’t bother much with me and I don’t have a partner.I didn’t expect to be so isolated at this time in my life, isn’t it strange the way family and friends seem to forget us when we get past 60? I will pop in regularly and hope to strike up some friendships.

Hello. My name is Mike and I live in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Looks like a nice website to meet people. I'm trying to get my girlfriend to join as well but she's hesitant, so I thought I would try it out and then tell her more about it. I understand the majority of members are in the UK? How many Canadians are there? I like meeting people internationally. This is the second forum I've ever joined, the first was cancelled. I look forward to making new friends and participating in interesting conversations.

I never thought when I reached seventy how the years would fly by. Since then I think everybody part started to fall to bits. I chose to get divorced 10 years ago so I am on my own. That's not a problem, it was like that when I was married. Writing poetry got me through my divorce. I also paint and have been working on various family trees since the 80's long before the help of computers. I certainly recommend genealogy if you are lonely. I have loads of 'friends' there. Just a pity they are all dead. I would love to chat to some of them. They are fascinating. Well, that's a bit about me.

Well I can’t believe my life is where it’s at. I have recently had to change my job, change my marital status, but along with 7 other incidents of bad luck, I have come out of it a far stronger person. I am now ready to join the planet again. I am a mother, friend, member of the nursing profession, musician, trout master (which I think is funny). Please say hi, as I still feel a bit lonely due to this funny world we now live in!

Hi. I recently joined and wanted to introduce myself. I am 68 and retired in May. All my plans for retirement are currently on hold due to the lockdown. Hopefully, it will be over soon. I love travelling and I am lucky that I have been able to travel a lot. I have found it quite hard retiring at this time as I miss the camaraderie of work colleagues. I love walking and being in nature. I also love reading and films and chatting. I look forward to making new friends here.
