Hello, I recently joined Silversurfers and love it. Although, it made me think... I must be missing out on so many other forums/Facebook groups/Meetups etc...
What else do you guys use to speak to other people over 50 or find relevant info/discussions? Thanks!
Reading the article on loneliness today many folk who find themselves alone in later life have difficulty in building up friendships again...and don't know where to start.
A Pen Pal chat page is friendly and can be opted in and out of without problem wherever the writers are located - be it locally, UK, Europe, USA, Australia etc...the World is our oyster online! Get chatting!
Hi to you all another member to join you all,
My village has a lovely community with several events that I am looking forward to attending especially now that fall has started.
I am here to make new friends especially in Dartmouth areas where public buses have access as I have no transport Patricia xx
I recently lost the love of my life suddenly to cancer 2 weeks ago.
I am smart and realistic person who knows that time will heal my broken heart and happy memories will replace my darkness. But I just can't seem to figure out HOW this will happen.
I am in such a dark and lonely place and I know I am not alone.
Please if you have been where I am, how do I survive this?💔
I am in the situation of wanting to move. But where to.....I could go closer to family which would be fine, but I want more adventures in life.
I enjoy people. I am 64, gregarious and love life at every turn. Even the bad turns have had their positive moments. So......where do I move to? I have moved and travelled a lot in a lifetime. You would think that I would know where my passions lie, but my decision to come and live in a rural community was about thirty years too early. I'm just not ready for it. I realise now that retirement is merely a word and I never intend to stop doing what I love to do.
It's just that we don't always know or realise what makes us buzz, do we? I enjoy people too much and although I love where I live - the air is pure, the views are stunning, the silence is golden, but I have to admit that what I really miss in life are people. In all shapes and sizes. So..........I came up with an idea of having my cake and eating it.
I wanted to find somewhere in the U.K. where I would really enjoy living. I like to have a taste of people - not all of the time, but need the buzz of the city to counteract where I am living at the moment. So - I cat sit. I go into people's homes and look after their cats - for free. I talk cat language and it enables me to travel to all sorts of places and live in all sorts of homes and meet all sorts of lovely felines (who are on the same wavelength as me) .
I have the added bonus of being in a town or city where I can EXPLORE. It's fantastic.
A win win situation. So......if you are having a dilemma like this in life. Think about what you want.......and how to go about it so that you can really - have your cake and eat it. I've been solving problems like this for years.
Hi. I live in Malvern with my partner and I'm 53.
I'm looking to meet new friends in my area. I like to keep fit, cinema, gardening, walking my dogs too.
If there is anyone else on here from Malvern it would be lovely to hear from you.
Hi there new to this so finding my way around.
My life has been nothing if not interesting and continues to be so. I moved to Scotland last year to fulfill a dream. It helps that my eldest daughter lives here. I did work but gave it up recently to care for my father who sadly died in July so now am sorting out a new life. I travel south to visit my mother and other two children regularly.
I have started an art class, a life long ambition and have just joined Rotary. I knit, embroider and read. I love living in Scotland but life is in turmoil because my husband decided that he prefers working down south so most of the time I am alone.
I am happy on my own but love to communicate with others, hence trying this.
Enough of me, for now, are there any members who live in Fife?
