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.
Hi I've just joined. I lost my husband 15 months ago. It was very sudden, still trying to sought it out.My daughter lives with me as the houses are so expensive here, but she told me she is leaving at the end of the year. I'm glad for her.I'm in my 70 but in good health but I've had a hip op so not running about.Hope to hear from someone soon
Hi all - I'm 67 just remarried 2 yrs ago. I've had a widely diverse life but could be a better judge of character. Lived in Australia for 10 yrs and and France for 5yrs. My passions used to be horses and motorbikes but I have slowed down a bit now.Unfortunately I now find myself married to a man with passive aggressive covert narcissist personality disorder which impacts on me greatly. As soon as the world is covid safe I would like to travel in a motor home and get as far away as possible.Any other ladies doing this - would love to hear from them. I used to be quite fun loving though responsible but lost my mojo for a while now. The people where I live are a bit hostile to new people so its a double whammy.Open to chat too so long as you're not a Trump supporter :)
Hi, I’m 68 female. Married with a dog and suffer from depression, some days worse than others. I read a lot. I do crosswords a lot. Recently moved to the country and would love someone to exchange messages with
Approaching 63, I'm becoming more conscious of the absence of friends in my life.I've lived in England for 12 years now (Basingstoke and now Fleet), having been born and spent my life in Southern Africa (Zimbabwe, South Africa and Namibia).I have family living in Basingstoke but it would be nice to chat to someone unrelated occasionally.Rugby (union & sevens), cricket, motorbike racing, reading and current affairs are always good starting points for me.Every now and then I like to do something more extreme like abseiling down the Spinnaker in Portsmouth three years ago... I still work so I'm not always online but I will reply whenever I get a chance.
