Hi I'm a 56 year old widow who has a busy day time life but would like an interest where I don't need to leave the couch in the evenings so thought I will have my first attempt at a forum if that the right way to put it.
Of the thousands of people who join sites like Silversurfers, the majority are looking for a connection with another human being for whatever it may be. Why then, after their initial post and reply from SS members, they disappear without a word in reply? They talk of wanting friendship, then promptly leave. They pour out their painful hearts wanting replies and help, then disappear. Hands of friendship and help are held out to them only to be ignored why? WHY MAKE THE INITIAL CONTACT, WHAT IS IT THAT PEOPLE REALLY WANT? Do you know what people really want? Everyone, I mean. Everybody in the world is thinking: I wish there was just one other person I could really talk to, who could really understand me, who'd be kind to me. That's what people really want, if they're telling the truth.” ― Doris Lessing, The Golden Notebook
Two weeks ago my husband informed me he wants a divorce after 18 years of marriage. I've had the additional sad and frighting realisation that I have absolutely no friends of my own and no family for support and to enjoy a new life with once this mess is over. Is anyone out there?
I can chat about anything under the sun, but I'm interested in news from England, but also world news.... I am interested in travel, nature, a bit of famous events from world history.... Whatever is your interest, I'll try to pick up as best I can....
I am thinking of setting up a singles night for the 55+ age group in Shropshire as there does not seem anything for us I personally would rather meet people face to face , as like many others I have had a couple of unfortunate experiences with dating sites so thought if I could go to a singles or "speed dating" night perhaps it might be easier, but as I say there appears to be nothing so thinking of setting it up myself. Does anyone think there is a call for it, has anyone been to one to offer advise to what do you think???
